Welcome to futures io.

futures io is the largest futures trading community on the planet, with over 100,000 members. At futures io, our goal has always been and always will be to create a friendly, positive, forward-thinking community where members can openly share and discuss everything the world of trading has to offer. The community is one of the friendliest you will find on any subject, with members going out of their way to help others. Some of the primary differences between futures io and other trading sites revolve around the standards of our community. Those standards include a code of conduct for our members, as well as extremely high standards that govern which partners we do business with, and which products or services we recommend to our members.

At futures io, our focus is on quality education. No hype, gimmicks, or secret sauce. The truth is: trading is hard. To succeed, you need to surround yourself with the right support system, educational content, and trading mentors – all of which you can find on futures io, utilizing our social trading environment.

With futures io, you can find honest trading reviews on brokers, trading rooms, indicator packages, trading strategies, and much more. Our trading review process is highly moderated to ensure that only genuine users are allowed, so you don’t need to worry about fake reviews.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading sites:
  • We are here to help. Just let us know what you need.
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive in our community.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendors advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, we can help you find it.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community.  It's free and simple.

Ok, thanks mate.

I have now started to look around for similar. That's dangerous as I may end up wanting to spend money!

This looks quite nice - albeit only 4 screens

Think I may just stick with what I have for now though.

My next upgrade will be 2 x 40-43 inch UHD monitors , definitely the way to go now . Save on GPU as well .

I guess you will be using 4K resolution monitors, and 2 monitors go to a computer and graphic card.

what graphic card are you using.
I was considering this arrangement and I scrapped the idea as the graphic card can't support the two
4K resolution monitors.

I'm still figuring out why do we need 4K screens for charts

If I become half a percent smarter each year, I'll be a genius by the time I die

Even integrated graphics supports 4k these days . You dont need killer frame rates for static images . You should be able to pick up a 4k GPU suitable for trading for around 100 bucks

I got an MSI GE73VR Raider https://us.msi.com/Laptop/GE73VR-Raider.html about a month ago...love it! Stupid sick for a thin and light laptop. After looking at monitors for a long time I finally decided on and ordered 2 MSI Optix AG32C https://us.msi.com/Monitor/Optix-AG32C 32 inch monitors. These are not 4K...but after looking at so many monitors in this size range 4K was not something that mattered to me. I was more concerned with viewing quality and to add refresh rate and response time....plus I like the curved : )

Anyway, I'll post some pics of my rig when my monitors are delivered.

thanks!

Johnny

Hi guys,

It is my pleasure to announce a new challenge event for August 2018: Battlestations!

With this event, we are encouraging members to share pictures of their trading desks. We will be giving away $750 in Amazon Gift Cards for this event, split into (5) $150 prizes. These prizes are provided by five of our fantastic site sponsors: Stage 5 Trading, Earn2Trade, NinjaTrader, Jigsaw Trading, and GFF Brokers.

There are just a few simple rules to follow:
  • a) The contest begins August 1 and ends August 31. All decisions made by futures io are final.
  • b) One of the photos in your post must show the futures io logo on our website. Don't forget!
  • c) Take a selfie or have someone take a picture of you at your desk! For at least one of the photos, we want to see your face! We are making this optional but highly recommended.
  • d) The photos need to be uploaded here on futures io. No linking to external sites. No videos.
  • e) You may submit multiple photos (please do!) -- but only your first post in this thread, containing photos, posted between August 1 and August 31, and following our rules, will be considered for the contest.
  • f) Winners will be chosen by counting the numbers of "Thanks Received" on each qualifying post.

Ten years in the making, one-year love affair.
Wouldn't you like to know the details? The attached monthly journals reveal it all.

In summary, I am happily trading in a paperless environment that I never thought it's possible.
Everything I need is in front of me, 15 Multiview Screen Workspace--thanks to UltraView Desktop Manager from Digital Tigers.

I do not trade intraday during summer because of slow moving market; otherwise, every day is a Groundhog Day: Eat, Sleep, Homework, Trade.
Just love being with "iLoveStation" in my new home office.

What’s next??? I would love to buy a new toy using Amazon gift card: RAZER NAGA CHROMA--Mouse That Changes How You Trade.

Let's vote by pushing "Thanks" button, huh? Thanks a million!

I have a suggestion, why not have a wall of fame for different categories of desks. Not necessarily money but more about bragging rights/recognition. I've been through this thread and some desks make my eyes water, others make me lol, some are like wtf, some make me jealous...
I think at minimum we should celebrate the most over the top setup. I don't mean it in a disrespectful way but as recognition of the pioneers out there that are prepared to display their unique style through the awesomeness and artistic expression of their setups.
