The days of using paper charts for day trading are long gone. We now use computers to manage day trading, giving adequate space to organize data and promptly find required information. The result is that trading is much easier and faster than it was in the past.
Day trading requires the gathering and analyzing of data quickly; but, switching between or continuously maximizing and minimizing windows or applications is time consuming. The solution is to use multiple monitors to create more work space so that all the data can be viewed at the same time.
Usually, only two monitors are needed for beginner traders. Trading platforms can be kept on the main monitor and the traders’ charts can be displayed on the other. As the trading business flourishes, it is wise to invest in more screen space, maybe even a video wall. Video walls consist of multiple monitors that make giant display screens. The important thing to remember is that the greater the volume of trading, the greater the need for screen space.
When speed is important, as it is in day trading, accessing information easily is of the utmost importance. Multiple screen technology enables day traders to work precisely and proficiently.
