I am trying to set up a comprehensive trading platform. My MAC setup will comfortably drive my three 43 inch 4k monitors. What I am looking for is the ability to simultaneously have open a minimum of 12 time frames charts across 6 to 10 markets.

Has anyone done something similar to this?

Any help or guidance would be more than a little appreciated.

Hi @MrBridger,  using the online platform that should be quite easy, the limiting factor is going to be memory, each chart will take up a percentage. For example running Chrome, plus some other apps, and with around 14 charts open I'm using up about 30% of 16 GB.

With the online platform you could have a new browser page for each 'workspace' and so you could have 10 workspaces resized and positioned anywhere on your screens, and within each workspace you could open your 12 time frame charts.

Hope this helps, would love to see a pic once you get it all set up.

A display setup is not really going to have much to do with an actual trading strategy but is simply a reflection of which markets you are wanting to keep an eye on as well as associated markets.

Get some surprising bad data for example and suddenly gold and dollar are going up while oil and US indices are going down, then the other western indices follow down. Oh to be sitting back in a big lounger and flicking your eyes from screen to screen rather than being hunched over the terminal flicking backward and forward though charts looking for the setup of your strategy to appear.

Yes, you wouldn't want to be trying to look at 100 charts all at once. But to be able to survey the Savannah at a glance before deciding where to focus has it's advantages rather than constantly flicking backward and forward through a dozen charts before choosing one then flicking backward and forward through the time frames. Such a display setup does have it's advantages and I know lots of full time traders have something similar.

Why not compromise and only buy the 43" monitors with profits you make trading while hunched over your 14" laptop?  Spending all that money upfront isn't such a good idea.

    • Hah, can't believe they censored out the word d@mn.    
    • Interesting chart of Scandinavian all-cause deaths in 24 month periods shows no covid effect at all. The winter of 2019/20 was mild with fewer seasonal deaths than ususal but then the novel coronavirus was released and the deaths that would have occured during winter occured in April instead.  This is why so many countries are showing no real increase in all-cause deaths per year. It also shows that the covid death numbers are fake and are rebranded deaths from other causes. The vast majority of people who catch covid have mild or no symptoms at all, for those with symptoms the infectous stage only lasts 10 days max. From then on you have natural immunity. If you've had SARS-CoV-2 anytime over the last 17 years you will have T-cell immunity, if you have been in contact with covid-2 this last year you will also have covid-2 antibody immunity. Push the myth that covid can be spread asymptomatcally, mass test asymptomatic people with a test that is designed to detect old dead viral RNA that their immune system has destroyed and when the test shows positive pretend they actually have covid. We are constantly in contact with viral material, with an effective immune system we deal with it and don't get sick. Testing people who are not sick you will find old viral material if they came in contact with the virus up to a month previously, same if you apply the test to someone who has died.  Counting these people as covid 'Cases/Deaths' is a fraud and is done to boost the numbers and perpetuate the climate of fear. No return of freedom for you until you're begging for health identity cards, oh - and may as well add finance and energy usage details while we're at it.   .
