It's not the quantity, it's the quality! :cheesy:

Only have 3 myself:

1 x 19in CRT
1 x 42in plasma
1 x 17in widescreen LCD Laptop

that's more than plenty for me.....

Impressive zow - particularly the 42" plasma, and you use that to trade with.. not just for watching dvds?! Any chance of posting a photo up on the site?

Mike Gaunt has 12 screens, as he told the Hatfield meeting last week.

I have 2 and no need for any more.

Glenn,
hi (not chatted for a while :) ) - At last year's meeting in Brum he had 9 as I remember.... maybe Helen Q can run a sweep based on how many Mike will use by the next meeting?
I have to admit, I thought Mike was good first time round... he's obviously a candidate for some sort of Vulcan mind meld (but with a supercomputer) sometime!

Hi Dave
Hope you are well

Mike went through 'a day in the life' of his activities.
Somewhat manic compared to me.
12 screens compared to 2
97 marathons compared to 3
Not sure whether I want to compare any other numbers :)

Don't know if he's good - but he sure is busy.

Cheers
Glenn

I suspect good comes into it, he seemed a decent enough chap!
Interesting chat last year, and doubtless so this - not my cup of tea as yet, but it's still nice to see how others do it.

I have 2 and was happy but now I feel deprived !
:(


One for 'Incoming' - data feed /charts etc and
One for 'Outgoing' - quotes/trades/web chat/charts/ news etc

Not sure I would know what to do with any more but
I expect something would turn up. Parkinson's law isn't it ?
The more screens you have, the more you find to fill them.

Can you get a grant from Blair for these things ?

I laptop - 9 screens - Forex

I use 9 screens on one laptop ! can expand any screen instantly - why complicate matters when you can do it all on one computer (less than £1200 and free software from your trading company - I trade Forex usually GBP/USD - takes me seconds to change to another currency- image attached. Market closed on this picture hence no trading activity - (KISS) keep it simple stupid -
Psssst - I can take it with me anywhere in the world - and I do !- Z

Nice to see the members photos are changing now :LOL:
