I'm at Starbucks enjoying a coffee as I type this....on my 15 inch laptop and I've opened a trading work space to see how well it would work with just the laptop screen.....and I like it a lot. I might give this a try for the next few days and see how I like it.....

Main monitor which I use for trading(DOM, tape and chart) is 27" 1920x1080 and
second is 21" 1680x1050 there is few longer term charts that I take a look once in a while.
third is 23" 1920x1080 which I use for everything else (chrome etc.)

Currently two 27" acer monitors for NT hooked to the laptop with pcmci to a PCI-E expansion, and then the older computer running TOS on a single small LG monitor. I've got another LG monitor duplicate, not really used for trading, but may need to rearrange the monitors on some kind of support, more deskspace/or not someday.
I used to trade with my desktop using four 19" monitors. Then my desktop puked so I ordered a new one. While waiting for it to arrive, I put NT on my laptop and I've been trading on it ever since. Not that it means anything, but I understand Al Brooks trades with only one 15" laptop.

I paid around $650 for the 30" monitors in the states on monoprice (there is a thread on futures.io (formerly BMT) somewhere). Here it would likely be over $2,000 and I can't even find one that is as good.
I'll wait for my container to arrive
It works out, I've not been spending much time in my office lately.

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?

6 x Samsung 2343BWX 23-inchers that do 2048x1152 run off a ATI 5870 2GB 6-output mini-displayport card. Another 4-quad 1280x1024's run off another video card. Will be adding probably 2-4 more monitors. Using 40+ charts, 12+ instruments. Yes, it can become a bit of a heat-emissions issue during the summer (from the monitor display, not the hardware!)
