You’ve finally decided that you’re ready to embark on a career as a day trader. You have the knowledge and most of the capital you’ll need to get started. But what kind of computer system do you have and is it working toward your benefit, or your detriment?
You’ll need a day trading computer that’s different from what you’d normally buy for your own personal use. The Huffington Post online reports that computers at banks and trading firms can “scan dozens of markets and order millions of stock prices every second.” So as a solo day trader, you’ll be sorting through massive amounts of information in the course of a single day.
All of this information can’t be displayed on a single computer monitor. Moreover—and according to Browser-user.net—because many factors affect when a trade is begun and when it ends, “closing out one screen and opening another, especially with real-time data, means key indicators of when to buy and sell can be missed.”
The computer you buy should be therefore be fast, powerful and able to accommodate multiple monitors. Since you will be dealing with volatile information that can change in the blink of an eye, your computer will also need to be reliable and dedicated solely to day trading. Browsers-users.net recommends that the number of computer monitors you buy should be based on your specific trading needs.
It’s also important to make sure that you have access to reliable technicians who’ll be there for you when you need them most and who’ll restore your systems quickly and efficiently. After all, in this profession, timing really is everything.
The importance of a high performance machine cannot be overstated. Speed, and range of what you see can mean the difference between making or losing thousands of dollars.
