What hardware do I use for trading?

Some of you might have already read about me and that I love tech and any­thing relat­ed to it. I love to have nice gad­gets and stuff but what I like even more is to have a nice office set­up so I’m gonna show (off) to you a bit about the evo­lu­tion of my setup.

I won’t be going into the hard­ware as much since this is after all not a tech blog but a stock trad­ing blog.

And then I was for­tu­nate enough to move yet again to a nicer apart­ment and obvi­ous­ly I had to have an even nicer office set­up to go along with it.

Even did some cable man­age­ment for those friends with OCD.

But that quick­ly turned into this:

Need­less to say… I over­did it a bit.
