With futures io, you can find honest trading reviews on brokers, trading rooms, indicator packages, trading strategies, and much more. Our trading review process is highly moderated to ensure that only genuine users are allowed, so you don’t need to worry about fake reviews.

Nice!

please describe in detail, the video card, or multiple cards used, the back plane on the MoBo to support (AGP, PCIe 2.x, etc)

also your experience with that card (too noisy, too hot, over heats, maintains heat dissapation, etc)

thanks

great seemless view, just resolution settings, brightness, etc variances between monitors

Looks like @indextrader is running more than 1 PC on this set up

Looks like 3 to my eyes

DisplayFusion lets you customize multi-monitor taskbars in a million different ways, including what is shown. I've used the software for many, many years and highly recommend it.

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.

I don't think ...

anybody implied or stated that those six monitors where being driven by one machine. Not really sure I understand why that would be a point to bring up. I use two machines to drive four monitors and now that I think about it I've always used no more than 4 monitors on a single machine.

Is there something I do not know or understand about running multiple machines on a trading desk? The thought here is that there is one machine that has OE only, keeping all the less critical data on a secondary machine.

So would that set up be better if it was 6 monitors one machine? Clue me in.

I'm not saying it isn't multiple PC's. Good software to do that too. Just saying that multiple start buttons and or taskbar tray icons can be configured with DisplayFusion.

Still haven't gotten my office setup, but this is what I'm currently using. I have good speakers for music, guitars to pick up between trade decisions, and of course a handgun sitting on the printer.

I totally get the Guitars...

But the handgun? Trading in a bad neighbourhood?
