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.

I built this setup in February. I was very concerned it wouldn't be powerful enough to drive the whole thing. But it does a great job. Plus I can pack up the laptops with my chart package and trading platform and head to the hotel next to a place I like to paddle on the Mississippi River.

how to post a picture. I wanted to share a brilliant piece of software. Like a dumbass I added a new machine without thinking about how an additional mouse and keyboard would screw things up and get in the way. My neighbor, who is a brilliant guy, suggested Synergy. This is an open source program that is complimentary...same as free...that allows you to control multiple computers with a single mouse and keyboard.

Here is the real trick. I was able to download, install, configure and use this software without any help at all. I have no contact or relationship with the guys there except to say they have improved my desk and made my life easier.

Hi @wldman. I used synergy for awhile across multiple screens, but my experience was less than favorable. Most of the time it worked well but about once a week or so the mouse would freeze requiring a reboot. I didn't want this trading futures.

If you have problems with it and want a more permanent solution you could consider a multi-head graphics card. Once I put these in and didn't have to mess around with Synergy I was very happy and not had one single problem since. I'm using this:

NVIDIA® Quadro® NVS 450 Professional Graphics Solution

So for 4 screens you would need one of these and two for 8 screens. Make sure you have 2 PCI-e slots. I only have one of these and 2 x 2 gaming cards for 8 screens. I could do this because my motherboard has 3 PCI-e slots and had the gaming cards anyway. You could also use 2 x2 existing video/gaming cards for 4 screens if you have 2 x PCI-e slots. This would be the cheapest solution and Windows 7 handles it flawlessly.

Cheers
DJ

Fairly basic, but it works for me. The white metal chair is gone and I now have a HAG H04.

Awesome view. Best scenery for a trading station

Math. A gateway drug to reality.

Yeah, most of the time it's very serene and quiet, ideal for trading really.



Here's a shot I took once at the end of a trading session...
