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.
