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.

-- Big Mike

Again: NEVER use this kind of software to control your order entry machine, that's asking for trouble big time!

So what I do is having the mouse and keyboard connected to my trading/order entry machine and control the less important one remotely. For the odd glitch I keep a mouse and keyboard connected to the other machine too (I don't mind as it is in an other room).

Thanks Vvhg, good points. I use the order/trading pc now as master, and the less important one remotely (as you suggested). Actually, I'm now typing this on PC1 and browsing/posting on futures.io (formerly BMT) on PC2. How great is that!

its hard to tell in the picture but the upper monitor sits on a camel saddle and the lower monitor fits between the legs and below the seat bow -this is used to remind me every day of my daughter who works and lives full time in qtar -the richest little country in the world

Is the glass to isolate you from the rest of your home, or is that an office building ??

Futures Edge on FIO
I recently built my first pc for trading only, it runs on an i5 2500 and for graphics currently one nvs 295, I will be adding 4 more monitors soon and am torn between 2 more NVS 295's or 1 radeon hd 7870 eyefinity 6 with 6 mini display port's. If anyone has an opinion either way I would love some input. The monitors are 24" Desk is temporary until I can find one that I like that has matching office furniture.

If anyone has an opinion either way I would love some input.

I've had a Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6, and a Radeon HD 7870 Eyefinity 6. I wouldn't buy again, because they have some sort of signaling problem that causes "flickering". Just google "radeon eyefinity flickering".

I've just purchased two FirePro 2460 cards off ebay for about $175 each, hoping it will solve this flickering problem since I am splitting the load across two cards, and it uses a different set of drivers. This was the best card for me, because I can use my existing mini-DisplayPort cables. Each card supports 4 monitors and is passive (cooling). The $350 is less than the Eyefinity 6 card, which I will be putting on ebay shortly.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Bloomberg's HQ in Tokyo. I like the electronic ticker tape running through the floor.

I love those monitor "tree stand" looking things... I have to look into something like that.
