If you’ve watched any of my videos you know I use Jigsaw Daytradr as my trading software. It’s a great scalping tool. Even though I’ve used it a year, I’ve basically kept the same colour scheme the entire time aside from a few small changes.
The other night when painfully bored watching the US Treasuries, I decided to create a few unique colour set ups. I tried 3 out, and in the end I went with a combination of 2 of them. Pictures below of my fun artistic side of futures trading.
The Original Setup
This is basically how my screen has looked the last year. It works fine, but I was ready to mix it up.
The 3 Attempts Before Finale
Here are the 3 combos I came up with before doing a final 4th layout down below.
Left: Black – White – Grey
I don’t mind this one actually. It’s not very exciting, but if you just wanted a clean look this would do it. I’d consider using it in the future, but not right now, looking for something more fun.
Middle: Easter Theme
I actually don’t mind this one either. It’s a little bit too colourful for my taste, but it’s workable.
This one didn’t work out. By taking away any histograms and flashing colours, I basically negated any benefits of using Jigsaw Daytradr. This one was a good idea that didn’t really pan out. That’s alright though, not a bad attempt for my first evening of playing artist with Jigsaw.
The Final Setup (For Now)
I basically cleaned up the Easter theme to be less colourful, but kept the greens and purples. I made the pricing and volume profile to be greys and whites. I still need to touch it up, but this is what I’m working with now. I rather like it compared to the original Blues/Red combo.

Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
Hypothetical Performance Disclosure:
Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. for example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.
