Further speed enhancements tonight. Now all public forums are delivering image attachments via the CDN. This means non-Elite forums (can't do Elite for privacy reasons).

What this means is that the images are going to be served from the CDN network, which means no matter your location there should be a CDN node much closer to you than futures.io (formerly BMT)'s own server. Since most threads on our forum are image attachment intensive, this should really drastically speed up the loading time for most of you.

With this change, I had to change the default "Attachment Thumbnail" viewer from the standard vBulletin lightbox to the Highslide gallery viewer. The highslide viewer was already in use on the site for inline images within the post, but was not being used for traditional attachments. Unfortunately, vBulletin's lightbox could not be made compatible with the CDN. The net result is no loss of functionality, just a slight cosmetic change from what you are used to.

As a reminder, if you wish to view an attachment image full-size (bypassing highslide), you'll need to right-click on the image and "Open link in new tab". This will give you a normal full-size window of the image without viewing it through highslide. This is useful for some advanced users who want to save the image or mark it up further.

This is a major change. 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.
