While I'm waiting for the new "Thanks" button I wanted to explain a bit more in depth about some of the cosmetic changes, because it's more than that...

In addition to updating the look of some of the buttons on the site, there is a major performance gain here as well. I am now using CSS sprites for all the most popular images on the forum, so it means that when you view a thread what used to take 35 HTTP image requests now will take only 6.

This reduction of 29 calls speeds up the load speed of the page because the browser doesn't have to wait for the server to tell us the status of all those images. This can especially speed things up for users that are far from our Chicago server, where latency is higher.

So the net result is pages should load a bit quicker, but the real speed will come soon when we upgrade our server hardware as mentioned above.


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.
