StockToTrade’s 6 Best Monitors for Trading

In this post, we’re going to go into some of the best stock trading monitors for this year.

As a trader, it’s important to choose a monitor that strikes the right balance between image quality, contrast ratios, responsiveness, and cost. Here are our top picks:

1.) Samsung CHG90 Series 49″ Curved Gaming Monitor


What it is: An ultra-large, ultra-wide curved screen with a 32:9 aspect ratio.

Why it works: The curved panel allows you to see the entire screen easily. No matter how complex the chart or how tiny the numbers, everything can spread out right before you in billions (yes, billions) of shades of color, thanks to the Quantum Dot color technology.

Where to Buy It:

This monitor features a very fast 1ms MPRT (moving picture response time) as well as a fast refresh rate, so you can keep track of stocks by the second without any motion blur on the screen.  

2.) Samsung CF791 Series 34-Inch Curved Widescreen Monitor


What it is: A generously sized 34-inch widescreen monitor with a deeper-than-average curve.

Why it works: A 3000:1 contrast ratio allows for deep blacks, which means you’ll be able to see trading charts in great detail.

Where to Buy It:

The 100hz screen refresh rate means minimal stutter, and a 4ms response time means that the motion blur is minimal.

The screen resolution of 3440×1440 is 2.5 times the pixel density of Full HD, so that means no matter what you’re looking at, it’s going to be extremely sharp.

Finally, one of the great benefits of this monitor is a PBP (“picture by picture”) function that lets you connect two different input sources using HDMI and DP without sacrificing the original image quality.

3.) LG 34UC98-W 34-Inch Curved Monitor


What it is: A 21:9 Curved UltraWide QHD IPS Monitor

Why it works: The curved shape of the screen means that you can see everything at once and in great detail.

Where to Buy It:

An on-screen control system allows you to control how you configure the screen, which lets you customize your workspace with ease. Split screen and display presets help keep you organized.

The design of this monitor is thoughtful, with ergonomic touches like an adjustable height and tilt so that you can set up your display at your optimal eye level.

4.) Dell P Series 42.51″ Screen LED-Lit Monitor

What it is: An LED-lit monitor with a massive flat screen.

Why it works: Look at that thing — it’s amazing! This is our pick for the best single monitor for trading. (Besides the 49″, but let’s face it, that’s not super-affordable for everybody.)

Where to Buy It:

Within one setup you can replicate a four-monitor setting, as there are four inputs allowing for a single screen with a multi-display. You can easily rearrange or zoom to any of them, too.

The Ultra HD 4k display is beautiful with crisp detail, and nothing to break up your view. The colors stay consistent across the wide angle, too, letting you see clearly up to 178 degrees, which is impressive if you want to show your friends your latest chart pattern.

A matte finish and low reflective rate mean that this screen is easy on the eyes, so you won’t experience strain when logging long trading and research sessions!

5.) A Pair of Dell UltraSharp U2412M Monitors (24″)


What it is: The Dell UltraSharp U2412M is an IPS panel screen with LED backlighting; StocksToTrade suggests picking them up as a pair.

Why it works: By configuring two of these moderate-sized monitors, you can attain a massive 2400 x 1920 in portrait mode. With 167 million colors, the screen shows a beautiful, clear, crisp image.

Where to Buy It:

Each screen has built-in pivot, adjust, and swivel function, so you can shimmy them into whatever alignment you like on your desktop.

The generous size of the screens combined means that you can configure your setup to create the “4 windows” look with two setups on each monitor.  

A Pair or Trio of AOC i2367Fh 23-Inch Monitors

aoc-i2367fh-monitorWhat it is: Each is a 23-inch IPS frameless LED-lit monitor. StocksToTrade suggests picking them up as a pair.

Why it works: This is a budget-friendly option that meets all of STT’s platform requirements, making it one of our top choices!

Where to Buy It:

The display is sleek and only 12mm thick; the ultra-narrow bezel on the edge measures just 2mm, making it ideal for a dual-monitor setup.

The beautiful IPS panel allows for consistent image viewing from all positions so you can flick your eyes back and forth between screens without straining.

With a 250 cd/m2 Brightness and 5ms response time, the screen is fast to refresh and offers a beautiful visual for the price.

Note: Regardless of which monitor you pick, be sure to choose one that meets the StocksToTrade system requirements for the best results.
