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.

Finally, my new PC is up and running. Four 22" (1 existing and 3 new) screens on the new machine and the two 19" on the laptop.

Here are the specs too...
  • Mobo: ASUS Z77(P8Z77-V DELUXE)
  • Cpu: I7 3770
  • Cpu Fan HR-02
  • Ssd: Samsung 830 512 GB
  • Graphic Card: Nvidia/colorful GeForce GT 640 Quad Screen
  • Ram: Kingston Hyper Blue DDR3 8G*2
  • Case: Coolermaster Silencio 550
  • Power Supply: Antec TP 550
  • System: Win7 Pro 64 English
  • Screens: Dell E2213 x 3
  • Stand: 6 screen Aluminum - Black

Well I've finally settled back in Australia, after 12 years in China. I grabbed a new video adapter and a couple of Acer screens and added to my setup. I've rented an office this time, a 5 minute walk from our townhouse here in a Brisbane suburb. Got to start all over again after finally finding success on the Dax the last few years. I'm going to try and trade the SPI or the NKD, I'll watch them both for a while and work on some plays. Trying to get a data feed for the HSI/HHI as well that supports historical data. Also going to look at some 1:1 index spreads.

Got a pretty good connection here now, NT is finally working well. Its not locked up once on me today, the first time since i purchased it.

Hi xiaosi

Good to hear you are settled in BrisVegas, I actually live down on the Gold Coast!!!!

Setup looking good and a lot of points you brought up there resonated with me. I too have been looking for office space outside of home but in the end couldn't justify the cost. How did you look at this situation??

Also, are you still trading the dax? I feel as though mastering this market, there is no need for anything else. It really knows how to move.

Anyways good luck and take it easy.
