Best color setup for my trading platform !


Trading for many hours every day, can be sometimes painful for your eyes. Specially if you are using multi-monitors like I do. That's why, after many years of testing different color setups, I have some conclusions to make.

If your trading on daily light, a few hours/day, in a lighter room you can use default colours. But if you use your trading platform more then 8 hours/day, mostly in the middle of the night, like I do, you need a special setup.

For colors setup options, right click on the chart - properties - colors.  


My default colors setup is like this:



From the common section, I've removed the grid. The chart is becoming too complicated when you add more tools for your technical analysis.

For the oscillators section, I use Dodger Blue colour.




Levels for all the oscillators, have the same colour as my grid:



In case I use the 3rd oscillator I use Light Sea Green colour:


In the end this is how it's looks like:


With this colors setup, I establish a personal record 48 h of trading, with no pain for my eyes. Of course with 10 min break, each 2 hours. 

Hope you'll find this useful for your day by day trading activity.

  3. Drawing trend lines is one of the few easy techniques that really WORK. Prices respect a trend line, or break through it resulting in a massive move. Drawing good trend lines is the MOST REWARDING skill.

    The problem is, as you may have already experienced, too many false breakouts. You see trend lines everywhere, however not all trend lines should be considered. You have to distinguish between STRONG and WEAK trend lines.

    One good guideline is that a strong trend line should have AT LEAST THREE touching points. Trend lines with more than four touching points are MONSTER trend lines and you should be always prepared for the massive breakout!

    This sophisticated software automatically draws only the strongest trend lines and recognizes the most reliable chart patterns formed by trend lines...

    Chart patterns such as "Triangles, Flags and Wedges" are price formations that will provide you with consistent profits.

    Before the age of computing power, the professionals used to analyze every single chart to search for chart patterns. This kind of analysis was very time consuming, but it was worth it. Now it's time to use powerful dedicated computers that will do the job for you:
