What is a Trading Platform?

Your online trading platform is the computer software program that you use to place orders at the exchanges. The majority of our traders use DAS Trader Pro as their platform. We consider it one of the best available platforms. You can also practice trading U.S. stocks in real time with the DAS Trader Pro simulator, and then later, when the markets are closed, with their “Replay Feature”. We provide support in helping you get set up with the DAS Trader Pro platform.

Trading Tools

Discover The Right Tools To Build Your Trading Business. Below you’ll find some suggestions for your trading tools. You of course can spend more or less on your trading setup, but we encourage new traders to keep the costs of their trading business down to start with.

Laptop – Dell XPS 15

Our best laptop recommendation is the Dell XPS 15. It offers the perfect balance of power and portability. Paired with a docking station (below), you can run up to 4 separate monitors, and with one pull of the cable you’re off to the coffee shop to journal your trades!

Monitor – Dell E2420HS

The Dell E2420HS is a great balance of price, size and quality. It is also VESA compatible if you decide you would like to mount your monitors above your desk.

Docking Station

This docking station is the perfect companion to the XPS 15. It will power your laptop to run multiple monitors.

Laptop Stand

With this aluminum laptop stand, you’ll raise your laptop your desk to the same level as your monitors.

Mechanical Keyboard

Wired keyboards don’t require a battery and won’t suffer any Bluetooth interruptions. More precise Hotkey inputs and it will also help prevent missed hits.

The Logitech G203

A wired mouse is also recommended. The Logitech G203 is high performance for the price.

Mounting Arm

A good mounting arm will get your monitors off your desk and up to eye level. Many will hold 2 monitors and some will hold up to even 6 monitors.

Stream Deck

The Stream Deck is a fully customizable keypad that will allow you to create individual buttons for various trading functions. Easily execute trades without having to click a mouse!

Ergonomics

Chair – HermanMiller Sayl Chair

When you’re not standing at your desk, it’s important to have a great ergonomic chair to support your entire body, and especially your lower back.

Desk – Fully Jarvis Standing Desk

Bear Bull Traders highly recommends this standing desk. We truly believe trading while standing can help keep you alert, focused, and awake.

Standing Mat – Sky Mats Anti Fatigue Mat

We recommend this standing mat with a soft foam core. It’s a perfect balance of support and comfort!
