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.

-- Big Mike

Are you running these screens on 3 computers? Looks like 3 mice there, so I wondered...
If so, what is the reason behind it?

So many great setups....
But all this electrical spaghetti would drive me mad.... I'm rather untidy, so the only way for me to survive is to keep everything extra tidy...
Some raceways and cable straps would do wonders!

There is so much I like about your setup.

1. Ones own trading enclave.

2. The rising desk feature...very cool.

3. The couch for a quick nap during markets lulls.

4. And the Al Brooks book on Price Action...

This is where I work. Where I relax to read and watch golf when I'm not playing golf behind me. And a view from my bedroom of protesters after Obamacare was upheld last Thursday, an hour later they were protesting in front of the Federal Bldg which is right across the street from where I live. I can look right in the FBI's windows, LOL!

And in this corner ...

My trading space:

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


I would have opened the blinds to include a view of our backyard, but was too embarrassed by my unsuccessful attempts to motivate our lawn technician (me) this weekend.

Since I've done trading related stuff in damn near every square inch of the house, including the garage, I elected to contain my image to just my trading space.

Eventually, I'd like to migrate to a different desk setup that will let me eliminate the monitor on the left and have my laptop. I've already been able to scale back from a 5-monitor setup to my current configuration. Ideally, I'd really like to get it down to just a laptop only. No external monitors. At least for my actual trading station. I can see keeping screens and stuff elsewhere for research/homework/etc.

Good stuff, futures.io (formerly BMT)'ers! Reminds me of an old thread over on ET - like this one, it got lots of views and interaction.

Have great weekend y'all!

Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity. ~ Seneca

Question for the 4+ monitor guys: Do you have a hierarchical view of the info coming in? How do you "progress" or do you "progress" from one monitor to the next (like a filter)? How many products do you trade?

I have charts on 4 of 6 monitors, one monitor per product. 5th monitor for DOMs, 6th monitor for web.

Mike

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)

Trading Desk


@keymoo
Great desk, was it worth it? I've been considering a stand up desk, and it seems more are starting to be made that don't look like drafting tables. Whose cradle are you using for your computer box? I have not been able to find one that will take a heavy mid-size box.


Outside entertainment consist white and gray squirrels, barn owl, Pileated woodpeckers, and a moma bear with 2 cubs.
