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.

Here is the monitor set up of a trading school specializing on the education of high frequency traders. The left chair is for the pupil, the right one for the instructor, who is already waiting for you.

I see a Mackie mixer, a lexicon reverb unit, and what looks like a furman headphone distribution unit in behind the mixer....a patch bay and a couple other pieces I can't quite make out....nice rig....

I guess we all see what we can relate to. I see Zyrtec.

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

lol, those are just external hard drive enclosures set upright on the long desk with their AC adapters strung alongside. Probably used to make it look not so bare in the split-second view. Probably the displays of the array of "mini-monitors" are CGI. At least Batman shut down the "HFT array" in the end, i.e. what the Freeman character called "immoral!"

I recall in the last episode of "Terminator: the Sarah Connor Chronicles", the supercomputer proto-skynet array they were trying to find was just an eSATA connected 4drive bay RAID enclosure (which they put a few extra LED or christmas lights on) they probably borrowed from an IT dept. The T-800 robot also had a typical thickly covered eSATA cable ("cord" they called it) attached.

I have more gear too. Maybe I'll post in my journal.
avalon tube preamp, 3 keyboards/workstations (phantom, motif, ms2000), mics, etc.

Those are organic almonds btw
zyrtec is a lifesafer...
