Below you’ll find BBT’s ideal day trading station setup to put your best foot forward into day trading.
That being said, of course you can spend thousands and thousands of dollars on your computer; we encourage new traders to keep the cost of their business down as much as possible to start.
We highly recommend wired mechanical keyboards. Wired keyboards don’t require battery and wont suffer any Bluetooth interruptions. Mechanical keys help for precise hotkey inputs and help prevent miss hits.
A wired mouse is also recommended. You don’t want to be stuck in a trade with a wireless peripheral that has dead batteries or connection problems! The Logitech G203 is high performance for the price!
When you’re not standing at your desk, it’s important to have a great ergonomic chair to support your body and especially your lower back. The qualities you’re looking for include lumbar support, breathable materials, and adjustable height and tilt options. Check it out here.
We highly recommend this standing desk at Bear Bull Traders. We truly believe trading while standing can help keep you alert, focused, and awake. This desk encourages healthy movement, and with simple memory buttons, you can adjust it to your favorite position with one press!
While we do think standing while trading will keep you more alert. There is no denying the fatigue you may feel from doing it for a longer period of time. That’s why we recommend this standing mat with a soft foam core. It’s a perfect balance of support and comfort!
