A Front Row Seat to 24 Epic Trading Desks

A Front Row Seat to 24 Epic Trading Desks

Stock traders spend a good portion of their days behind a trading desk, so it's only right that they have some solid setups. A lot of day traders have a different approach to their setups, just like a lot of them utilize different trading strategies. In chat, you get to read the insights of many great traders, but you rarely get to take a look at where they are trading from. It's cool to see other trading desks for inspiration and motivation. If only there were a Top Gear: Trading Desk Edition, or better yet Pimp My Trading Desk. Unfortunately, there is not, so this is the next best thing!

Check out these trading desks from some of the traders that are well known in our community.

  1. Here is mine. I post it to show that my desktop can take a maximum of 4 screens and that my laptop is actually linked to my desktop via a program called «Mouse Without Borders». It's free from Microsoft. Once linked (takes about 2 minutes to do), I can use my mouse plugged into my laptop and its keyboard to control my desktop computer as well. So my cursor can go from one computer to the other on every screen only using my laptop.There is a limit of 4 computers to be use with the program.This works with windows only though. With different OS there's other paying options like «Synergy» and «Shared Mouse».

  12. This is my trading rig. Alot of people ask about the background, they are actually sugar cane tiles along with Philips Hue smart lights, 2 vertical monitors and a 27" iMac (28 GB RAM) running Apple Boot Camp & Windows for Das Trader Pro.

    • Nice setup! I have the exact same rig except I don't like the apple mouse. Coming from the creative industry I have an iMac but will be making the transition back to WindowsPC this year.

  21. sandro's got my vote for best location!

    Reply
  22. Yeah, very motivating. Kool stuff, the era of the new Age trader is upon us.
    But seriously will two Screens (25", landscape, side-by-side on eye level) limit my trading capacity?? I would like to stay within three monitors utmost in the interest of a quality(green) work environment. I Like Cam's and Eric's setups (though I suspect both have upgraded to six screens by now) coupled with Nate's Geekdesk. My money there.
    Thank you.

  23. I recently got a Mac mini 2018 for home system i7 with 32 gb of ram. I’ve been considering adding an egpu for better performance for daytrading.
    I have 2 34” LG ultrawide curved monitors that I'd like it to power.
    I use Etrade pro and thinkorswim plus additional programs, slack tweetdeck and chrome. Wondering if the Macmini can handle without a epgu?
