Now when you post screencast images using the [screencast][/screencast] bbcode, the images will be downloaded to our server and served from futures.io (formerly BMT) instead of from Screencast.

This means they will be faster, and will not be subject to bandwidth limitations or retention policies of Screencast. It also significantly speeds up threads that have lots of screencast images embedded, because it doesn't have to go out and parse data from Screencast on every page load.

The sever is in the process of recalculating and caching all old posts with embedded screencast codes. It will take a couple of hours.

You can tell if the image is being served from the cached copy by looking at the URL. If it comes from cdn.bmcharts.com, it is cached. If it comes from screencast.com, it isn't.

Please report any problems.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
