It’s a heated topic. No two desks are alike.
I don’t think there is a right answer, but I use one. It’s a big Mac screen, with many windows open, but I have decided on a very clean workspace for thinking about stocks and markets and reading. My iPhone is always close nearby.
My home office is where I do my early morning (until 10 am PST) work and late night work. My Stocktwits office has one screen but the desk is a mess with paperwork and to-do lists so I like to just go there to make calls and catch up.
At the other end of the spectrum there is this person:
If this person is a writer, I would follow them for their idea flow, but I doubt I would trust this person with my money.
My favorite 3 answers of the hundreds were the following:
1. ‘If you can’t make money on one screen, how will you make money from 2?!’
2. Greg Guenthner says – ‘Just two – but I am suspicious of the information my left one has been giving me lately’
3. ZERO screens on my main desk…the KEY to ensuring low-frequency trading, read/think more and watch less television.
Chime in with your setup or better yet a photo, and my fave will get a Stocktwits Hoodie.
