"I use Esignal for graphing. Since I like to view charts of 3 different stocks simultaneously, Esignal takes up most of my single screen, which is a large 50 inch LG UHD. Resolution is set to maximum, 1440 so that I can fit a lot on the screen. My old monitor was just HD1080 resolution and I could only comfortably watch 2 stocks at a time along side my most important window: the pool scan window.
I use the pool scanner as a floating sidebar on the left hand side of my screen, beside esignal, in a separate browser (ms edge) than I generally surf in (brave). I use yet another browser (dissenter) to show the pool market bias in the top left hand corner, it is actually positioned a little bit over the top of the live scanner to help me to maximize my screen real estate. In the bottom left corner is my broker software.
I run multiple browsers on my machine for a string of reasons:
1. make it easy to start them up in the morning, no need to be navigating to pages / instances
2. find them really quickly during the day as they all sit separately across my taskbar in different colours
3. find them quickly to move them around easily across my screen real estate
4. be able to easily choose which one I want to be on top of the other
5. if a browser has an issue, I have several others ready on my machine to choose from
6. also to ensure my general surfing (when the market is slow) doesn’t effect the location of my two scanning windows. When I hear an audible alert, I need my 2 scanning windows to be already in place ready for me to take a look at what is happening.
When I start each browser in the morning, it automatically remembers the exact window size from yesterday to fit perfectly next to Esignal. Additionally, each browser automatically starts at the the scanner homepage that I have set. One browser has its homepage set as “market bias”, the other browser has its homepage set at the “live scanner”.
some other tips
I only occasionally use pool’s log list view and when I do I set it to refresh every 900 seconds to give me enough time to scroll through the list without being interrupted by a page refresh. If I ever need to search for a ticker in the log, I use the browser’s own “find” tool from the browser menu."
