Multiscreen Trading Monitors

I’ve got a number of acquaintances that are a part of the day trading stock industry, as well as the FOREX cash flow trading industry as well.  They all have a few things in common.  Number one, they all have the attitude of a “do it yourself” entrepreneur.

Second, they all trained themselves- and what I mean by that is that none of these guys have a traditional education in finance, they are all self-taught and did so (for the most part) by reading some books and watch what other traders were doing.  It may sound silly to most of us, because we are taught from a young age that education is most important thing we can acquire, but these guys don’t think like the rest of the hive.  And apparently taking this approach has work because all of them have a network over one million dollars, so are even into 8 digits net worth, crazy- I know!  The other thing that all of these guys have in common is that they all use multiscreen trading monitors for their day-to-day activities.  Regardless of what type of trading they are into, stocks, bonds or FOREX (currency exchange), they all have a somewhat elaborate setup that includes multiple trading screens.

Most of these guys, as mentioned, prefer to learn for themselves as opposed to being told what to use and what to buy.  However, they are a somewhat close knit group and will often times seek the advice of the members of their small group.  I think this goes a long way to explain why these guys are using multiple monitor computers.  Once one of them got multiscreen trading monitors, the idea spread within the group pretty quickly and they all decided to jump in and getting multiple monitors as well.  It is an interesting idea to say the least, but more on that in a minute.

The first guy to get multiple monitors within the group is a FOREX trader that prefers to remain anonymous, I will call him Rob.  Rob has been trading currency for almost 10 years now and he’s quite good at what he does.  You know how I mention a few of these guys had 8 digits of net worth?  Well Rob is that guy.  He’s sharp as a tack and quick to make smart decisions when it relates to his business.   He knows how to view the market and how to manipulate trades to his advantage 98 percent of the time.  Like I said, he’s very good at what he does.  He started using multiscreen trading monitors back in 2006 when he decided that having multiple computers running at the same time was inefficient given the technology for powerful processors had increased, but running a single monitor didn’t give him enough desktop space.  He actually missed a few trades because he was fumbling between charts and graphs and didn’t see a tell-tell sign that he should buy selling.  If there is one thing that Rob absolutely hates to do it is lose money.  He finds that to be extremely frustrating.

Soon after he missed the trade that cost him thousands of dollars he started looking for a better solution to the system he had setup, which included 6 single monitor computer systems all running independently.  This didn’t make sense to him.  He noticed a small company- selling some super pcs on popular web auction site and thought it looked interesting.  He was smart enough to know a good deal when he saw one and snatched up a 6 monitor computer from those guys.  It was the perfect multiscreen trading computer that he had been looking for all this time.  It was powerful enough to run all of his programs and much easier to use and more efficient than running 6 separate single monitor computers.

The results of using his powerful new multiscreen trading monitors were fantastic.  He was finally able to trade more efficiently and with fewer problems.  He would no longer have to worry about missing trades because he was fumbling between programs.

Word quickly spread among his peer group that he was using multiscreen trading monitors and how much better this was than using a single monitor computer system.  Next to pick up on this trend of multiple screen computers was day stock trader named James (we’ll leave his last name out to avoid any problem- I’m not sure if he would want to be bothered.)  James was one of the early adopters of the internet as a mechanism to facilitate stock trading.  He participated in BBS (bulletin board systems) throughout the 1980’s, long before most people had any clue what the internet was.  His small group of trader friends used Tandy computers that ran an old school version of DOS and connected to each other through the phone line.  It was pretty high tech stuff at the time.

James was talking with Rob one day when he realized that Rob was onto something new and great with multiscreen trading monitors.  He started asking question, mostly concerning productivity and ease of use.  According to Rob, it wasn’t as complex as it sounded.  He gave James the phone number for the guys over at and James gave them a call!  Immediately he was impressed with their knowledge on the subject of multiscreen trading monitors.  They seemed to be experts in the field.  He decided that rather than build a computer on his own (copying Rob’s setup of course) that he would simply let the guys over at build him a computer instead.  As it turned out, it was a smart decision and he was able to grow his company and his business using a multiple monitor computer system.

If you’ve been wondering if multiple monitors would be right for your business, take my advice and the advice of my friends and try and start using multiscreen trading monitors.  Sure it costs a small amount upfront to get everything setup, but once you do- you’ll be very happy with the end result.  Your profits will soar and your employees will be happier.  Multiscreen trading monitors will be a boon for your business.
