Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

I would like to get this to work.
The TWSStart intallation instructions says "no installation required" but after downloading the zip nothing happened. Upon opening the zip I see TWSStart.exe and TWSStart.jar. Do I open or run one of these (or both)?
The support tab on the TWSStart homepage gives "error 404".

TWS Auto logoff #%x*&*^(

i downloaded ibcontroller 2.9.. unzipped and clicked on the jar file, and nothing happened.
it seemed like that is what the instructions in the readme said to do.
anyone suggest what to do to bring it up ?

Try using ib gateway instead, if you have another trading platform like Ninja or Sierra. I don't even load TWS at all (thankfully). IB Gateway has no forced log off problem.


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.

Futures Edge on FIO
I found this as the best description of how to set it up. It worked for me:
