You don't need special equipment or a special computer to trade successfully. If you are able to read this article online, you probably already meet the minimum requirements for a trading PC.
Successful trading depends on factors such as or the right strategy! Not from the equipment. I can also buy marathon shoes now and still wouldn't be able to endure 2 kilometers running.
I even advise you, as a beginner, in most cases not to buy a special trading computer. For the following reasons:
You don't need these countless monitors, which you usually see on any pictures, because you concentrate on one or a maximum of two markets. Everything else just distracts you, stresses you out and makes for one of the most expensive mistakes in trading: trading too much!
Quite pragmatic: money is better off on the stock exchange. The monitor and your trading PC will only be worth half in a year. If you are clever with the money, it will be worth at least twice as much.
So the following tips are all optional and come from my personal experience. For beginners, it is better to invest the money in knowledge.
I value the following factors:
Fast start / operation thanks to an SSD hard drive and a good processor
as low a as possible
Operation of several monitors possible
Solutions with multiple monitors are particularly interesting for traders. I currently use 3 monitors (but 2 are usually absolutely sufficient)
When choosing a trading PC, I don't pay so much attention to the price, but rather to purchasing reliable devices from large, well-known brand manufacturers. They offer long-term support, good expandability and high quality and reliability.
Since trading is about money, that's more important to me than saving a few euros on a one-off basis.
Since I usually sit in front of the computer for 12-16 hours, an ergonomic workplace is also very important to me.
