Multi-Monitor Day Trading Computer Work Station 

I use to run my work station with 3 Lenovo Gaming Laptops, but I’ve recently made the change to Falcon computers.  I’ve been really happy with my Lenovo’s but I was due for an update.

 

I use a separate computer for my trading so the keyboard is always at the ready to execute trades.  This is especially helpful on breaking news.

The primary reason I use two computers instead of one is because I need to be able to live stream and trade at the same time and I don’t want to take any bandwidth away from my day trading computer.

Computers

  • Lenovo Y50 with i7-4700HQ @ 2.40Ghz
  • 32GB RAM
  • 256GB solid state hard drive
  • Nvida GeForce GTX 860M

I recently switched to a Falcon laptop, which are made specifically for day trading. I currently have the Falcon F-10 and F-30 laptop.

The Falcon F-10 specifications are as follows:

  • i7 Intel 6-core 2.6 GHz Processor
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 4GB GDDR6 Graphics Card
  • DDR4 32GB RAM

The Falcon F-30 specifications are as follows:

  • i7 Intel – 10700k 3.8GHz Processor
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 6GB GDDR6 Graphics Card
  • DDR4 64GB RAM

External USB Video Cards

Diamond USB to HDMI video cards allow me to run up to 6 monitors per laptop on my Lenovo.  This gives me the multi-monitor setup I run.  You can check these out on Amazon. For the Falcon’s you can run 2 4k monitors each.

Monitors

I have 6 monitors between 23″ and 25″.  I also have a 20″ monitor for my broker platform and a television for watching CNBC during the day.
