I look at so many charts, i need more than one monitor and they are tiny, so bigger and more of them would help. I have only 2 for charts one each on one pc. One for ninjatrader and trade execution and the other monitor is switched with kvm for forex mt4, TOS, and other pc for email web etc.
TOS i use for watching djt, sox, financials, tick, trin, vix, appl, oil, and comparisons of some combos of them. In ninja i watch 6e, 6j, 6c, 6b, 6a, ym, es, nq, tf, zb, dx, and 5 time frames of the one contract i am focusing on and a dom and time and sales linked, and time and sales constant for zb, huge blocks of the 30-year bond can be a clue...
I have decided for me the ideal setup is (6) 32" monitors stacked over and under with the right and left facing 30-45degrees inward toward desk chair. i will have (2) 22" monitors mounted over top of top left and top right 32" facing downward. 20ish degrees. I will probably go with 32's over 27" just because its my preference... For now my setup is shown in pics. (2) 50 left right facing inward, (2) 32" center over and under with a 22" under bottom 32" which is used for surfing during trades.... I can trade 2 instruments and never close a screen and surf on the 22" while my eyes can easily glance to trades in progress.....

Thanks: 204 given,
good setups guys. I think the chair is as important as the view, and agree with the earlier comment ergonomics of the screen and desk saves a lot of pain. what types of chairs have you gents gone with?
I've basically gone with the same one as my day job. So I feel like I'm at the office at home or away. not entirely the most healthy thing for me mentally come to think of it..lol
I got tired of spending $200 on a chair that would only be perfect for a year or two. So, I went to the pick and pull and got me a leather drivers seat out of 2008 Mercedes-Benz. Welded my old base to the seat, bought a new lift, and I am loving it. If I had time I would have wired it up to utilize the electronics (seat warmer, lumbar, and recline). Maybe my next one.
