Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • 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, and we will never resell your private information.

You should a software KVM switch between PC's

Input Director - Software KVM to Control Multiple Computers

That's what I thought too, I use synergy, but it's very similar, I guess...

Very nice setup, looks like you got a nice distance to the monitors, but the mouse pad looks very small for so many screens!

P.S you guys can have all the fancy key boards and mouse’s you like

Im sticking with my basic key board and usb mouse

Another problem i do not have to worry about in the heat of action

my computer reliability is almost as important as my trade plan

Synergy is great. I use it to control my laptop from my main machine.

Ah..the track ball, Either you love them, or hate them. No middle ground on these.

@VinceVirgil just bought one of these. Hated for for first 10 minutes. Two days later can't go back to my old mouse. I like the fact your hand stays stationary.

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

Need help


@Big Mike

Or anyone that might know.

Looking on tyke supply for a monitor stand or stands that will allow me to mount 4 monitors side by side horizontally with the monitors in a vertical position...so tall not wide as is typical.

Does anyone use such a set up or know where I might find a stand or pair of stands?

The monitors are 2 x 22 inch E228WFPC and 2 x 23 in U2312HM23

Thanks
