    Wow. What's your power bill like with all that running?

    What do you trade? Are the monitors required for your trading style?

    Apart from the YoYo, my setup consists of 2 x 46" Monitors connected to a dell laptop via dual 1080 outputs, the obvious advantage of this is I can take the laptop if I go out.

    I run a program called Winsplit that enables me to 'snap' windows easily (although it doesnt work within MT4)

    I also run Zoomit which enables me to (yes youve guessed it) zoom in at the touch of a button, useful when running 1080p.

    Mouse and keyboard are wireless so I can sit across the room without getting fried by the monitors.

    For a mouse I use a Genius mouse pen, I was starting to get bad RSI so I changed my input device, it works well as long as you hold it with your hand tilted 45" a bit like a joystick.

    Picked up one of these two weeks ago for my work trading station:

    It's all setup now and I'm very happy with it. I'll post an updated workstation pic on Monday when I get a chance to take a few pics. :D

    From the front:

    (I guess I'm up to 7 monitors now.. maybe I have a problem. :p If they look slightly tinted a warm colour, that's because of flux.)

    And the stand from behind, it fits on the corner of desk pretty decently and doesn't get in the way of anyone, while giving me a little spot to stash stuff.

    Improvised me a stand up desk out of a shelving unit. I sit down all day at work so need to be standing as I trade the London session by night. Pictured here as I do some weekend (ICT) revision.

    The plant is meant to be relaxing.

    Air-conditioning unit (fan) build in to the top as it gets mighty hot here in QLD.

    Trading journal stays in sight at all times as I keep forgetting to write in it.
