Thought I'd start this thread out of curiosity, since I'm very much into NLP and psychology. I'm interested in learning what colors you use in your trading software, e.g. on your charts, your open positions dialogue etc. A few years back, I realized that having flashy boxes and red & green charts with black background seriously impaired my rational judgement. So I decided to make my trading screens as boring as possible; I'm using black & white candlestick charts, since these are the colors I am confronted with in almost all trading books. I rarely use colors, and if I do, then mainly calming or psychologically 'neutral' ones such as grey, blue, orange etc. But maybe some of you found good applications for colors on your screens; what do you use e.g. flashy windows or bright colors for? Do you have lots of red on your screens?
