--- help financial traders access the financial markets. Financial Traders buy and sell various
financial instruments to make a profit. These traders use stocks, options, futures, commodities,
currencies (Forex) and other instruments to seek profit from changes in the markets. They use
specialized software to connect to their trading accounts over the internet and watch the markets
to find opportunities and then buy or sell financial instruments with a profit goal.
For the trader to watch the markets and connect to a trading account, it is important for a Trading Computer to be designed using real trading environments... which includes trading software and a multiple monitor array. Then the Trading Computer should be thoroughly tested to ensure that the computer components work together reliably.
Multi-Monitor Arrays --- help the trader view more information at a glance rather than force the trader to repeatedly change computer screens. This can save time and allow the trader to act quickly on a market opportunity. A multiple monitor array is often part of the Trading Computer System and can range from 2 to over 16 monitors... all presenting information at the same time.
Trading Desktops --- are often used to run a multi-monitor array. The desktop provides the computing power to display the graphics for all the monitors and run the necessary trading software. In addition, some traders analyze large amounts of data to help them choose when to buy and sell. Others have created algorithms to be able to use automated trading. There are many Trading Styles which vary widely from trader to trader.
Some general terms broadly describing Trading Styles are Trend trading, Swing trading, Momentum trading, Scalp trading and Day trading. In each style category, there can be many individual interpretations of the trading approach, but regardless of the style, traders all rely on access to market information and to their trading accounts. A Trading Desktop is often the only practical answer for these traders to provide the computing power they need to run their trading business.
Trading Laptops --- can be used to run a multi-monitor array. The laptop can easily provide the computing power to display the graphics for up to 4 monitors (using an external adapter) and run the necessary trading software. Then when the trader is away from the office... the Trading Laptop can still be used to connect to their trading account and the view the markets over the internet. Although, the trader will not have the advantages of the multi-monitor array while away from the office.
It is important for a Trading Computer specifically designed using real trading environments. When the Trading Computer System is built, it should be thoroughly tested to ensure that the computer components work together reliably with the multiple monitor array and trading software.
Your trading business counts on your system's performance and reliability --- it is your business tool, and it's
your "Life-line" to the markets.
