As a trader, you'll be spending a lot of time on your computer, so you'll want it to be fast, reliable and stylish. I have a custom setup that makes it easy (well, as easy as is reasonably possible) to manage my positions, scan, watch the market, run a chat room and a business, and stream it all for my subs to see. If you want to learn more about that, check out the video below.
But, I didn't just want to share my setup. I've had so many students share pictures of their computer layout that I thought I'd show off a few of my favorites below the video.
While having a fast, reliable computer and enough visual space to see what you need to in a glance is important, that still leaves a lot of room to express your own personality. I've received a lot of awesome pictures from my students - I wish I could post them all! There are no two traders that are exactly alike - we all have had our own experiences that shape our trading style. I think these pics illuminate that.

I love that Ryan Roach has his trading tools on a tool bench
The green backlighting and symmetry of this setup from Hybrid Trading really stood out to me
The painting behind Chris Obey's setup seems appropriate - sometimes trading feels like braving the wild west
Here are a few more of my favorites! If have a trading setup you'd like share, tweet me at @kunal00
