....Dell U2412M's....

I use four of these, still current models on Dell's site, fantastic monitors - go to TFT central and find the calibrated settings for best viewing performance, you'll then find they run cooler

.....physically relocated my PC to an adjacent room's closet, and just knocked out a small hole in the wall to run the DisplayPort monitor cables, audio cable, and USB cable (connected to a USB hub on my desk). This eliminates heat from the PC, but also makes my office silent.

Water cooling (not closed loop) worked to remove noise, but it's also the case, internal layout, etc, etc

Thank you. I bought it at a Danish furniture store in Copenhagen for about 10 years ago. It's made of solid oak so it's really heavy.

What the big difference between iLoveStation from last year to iGoStation this year?
Just the price tag and the size of the screen; no big difference other than adjusting to trading the CME next BIG thing,
plus creating and getting use to the new NinjaTrader8 Workspace with less Charts, less Indicators.

Most important is to have:
1Shot2Kill Strategy, iGetIt Model, and Swing2Go AttackPlan aka ALL in ONE Actionable Journal-ling in "Dial M for Murder tradingMicro.MES"

$2375
Digital Tigers UltraView Mini 49C[/U] Quad-core Mini Desktop System with Samsung 49" 4K UHD Curved Display
(workspace equivalent to 4x24.5" FDH 1080p monitors in 2x2 array)
Intel Core i7
SSD 250 GB
RAM 32GB

$699
Dell Inspiron 13.3" 5000 Series
Duo 2 in 1 Touchscreen Laptop
Intel Core i7
SSD 256 GB
RAM 8GB
Extended Display to 26" VIZIO TV Monitor


Find the missing piece of the puzzle... Let's be amazing, be awesome in trading today!

....its not about the machines, its about the lifestyle.

If I dont get a proper diversion in life I dont get any profits ....Kitesurfing.

my laptop is connected to my office 6 monitor workstations through teamviewer, dont expect you are interested in another multimonitor pic, thats not much surprising.

enjoy your life guys!

Best
Peter

This was my trading Desk in Jan 2019.



But...
The office space I was using (from a client) has been downsized and so did I.

I found I did not need all the stuff I had on the screen(s).

I now trade on my Surface Book 2.
The charts on it look similar to the ones on the laptop in the lower right of this picture.
(duplicated on the monitor next to it)

I wanted to post a picture of me at my desk with a huge 'green screen' background where an image of NYC was in the background of my corner office in the Freedom Tower.

But in reality, I trade from my Surface Book 2 on a desk (literally in a closet) next to the break room in a client's facility.
The nice thing about being in a closet, you can close the door and no one knows you are there and interrupt you.

Rejoice in the Thunderstorms of Life . . .
