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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

As I swing trade stocks I could place trades off my phone if I had to.

It is hard to find the Truth when you start your search with a preconceived notion of what the Truth will be.

Not really any of the listed options.
Im trading ~90% of the time on a server from speedyservers through RDC on the phone.
Only got one chart open though, so not too much screen estate needed. Platform is NT7.

You can be better tomorrow than you are today.

Old Windows Laptop...

I use an old Windows laptop (but it's 64bit OS). It was Win 7, but it has been upgraded to Win 10. I trade from it and sometimes write my forum posts on it. At the moment I'm writing this post on my old Win 7 desktop in the upstairs den at my house.

Eric.

Dedicated Lenovo Y510p laptop

Currently using a dedicated Lenovo Y510p with an i7-4700MQ @ 2.4GHz and 16 GB RAM. It has a slow-ish 5400 RPM HD that's backed with a 256GB SSD "cache" (i.e. hybrid). I predominantly use MultiCharts 64 (latest) with IQFeed/IB though have pretty much "tried everything" from this laptop over the past 10 years.

I usually have 8 charts "live" (CL, RB, CL+RB, 6E, YM, NQ, ES & Ripple) though typically only trade NQ, YM and CL (discretionary) and RB (automated). I keep the others active mostly just to have a full tick history available. Even during busy markets, the laptop keeps up fairly well though I have a 200Mb Internet connection so I'm sure that helps somewhat. I also generally connect to it from various other PCs via RDP so it's technically a "server" .

Attached is the chart layout I typically trade from - pretty "stock" list of indicators using range bars (exclusively) with the exception of a custom one I wrote at the bottom that identifies Europe market times vs. US and the current market "velocity" (pseudo-heat map) that shows how long a given range bar took to generate.
