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.

Excellent question Mike. Surprised that the specs don't detail that.

I also use 3x 30" so this would be an interesting upgrade.
Dell have them on their website for $1199 but the U3014s are still $1599 ?!?!?

One question I would have is what graphics cards would you need. I recall that when we were looking at the 4k monitors the graphics card requirements where very high. It's not 4K but it's 20% more standard 2560x1600.

My 30's are 2560x1600, so this is actually less height (1440p) which really sucks, 3440x1440.

I think for trading 16:10 is the way to go. 16:9 is not terrible. But here, 3440x1440, we are 21:9 so really going the wrong way. But, I still think I could make it work with my charts.

The LG:
LG 34UM95-P: 34? Class 21:9 UltraWide? WQHD IPS Monitor (34.0" Diagonal) | LG USA

Is cheaper than the Dell, but it's not clear if it supports DisplayPort 1.2 MST.

Anyone, not my intention to derail the thread. I was hoping someone here could comment on using multiple curved monitors or provide some better pictures and first hand experience.

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.

This is the reason why I want a furniture company or craftsman to begin making an adjustable trading desk. A trading desk that has a mechanical advantage to raise and lower the desk. My choice would be from near floor height for sitting on the floor, to the height of a standard desk for using a office chair, to standing.

Right now I either trade from a desk or sitting on the floor. In both situations I like to use one of those cushions that has an open spot for your spine. This seems to help my back.

An innovative craftsman could likely make one. Does anyone have contacts?

I believe a desk like this would save many a traders necks, spines and wrists.
The ability to trade from a coffee table height sitting on the ground(my preference) to sitting in an office chair or on a swiss ball(second preference), to standing.

Hi Guys,

Did upgrade my actual physical ''desk top'' ... Here are some pics:

Thanks to my brother and father who did actually extract the cedar themselves from the family land and made the wood pieces from their own wood mill saw:
