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.

Optimus Futures

My experience with Optimus has been positive. Matt Zimberg understands the realities of trading and provides many relevant ideas for traders.
Best of all they have excellent tech support for the NT platform. If you're looking for a [new] broker Optimus is worth a look.

Thank you for the kind words. We also have very strong familiarity with Sierra and MultiCharts amongst other platforms that we offer. Again, I appreciate you sharing your positive experience.

As part of our continued efforts to offer more value for our customers, the Optimus team has been hard at work redesigning the SierraChart toolbar to make for a more pleasant visual display and reference to tools that some of you may use actively throughout your trading sessions.

At this time and age it is refreshing to see a brokerage firm that actually makes an effort to add value to the trading platforms they work with and do this on their own expense. I am very happy to see that Optimus respect their customers' right to choose and offer thorough instructions, support and extra value for all the Platforms they work with.
If I am not mistaking, Optimus are also among the very few who took the initiative to create instructional Videos for Sierra Chart (and the other platforms as well) https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLOGjoJXp0cmpaY-rXK1FsEc5a2QRqk3tc

This is a very welcome initiative. I am a big fan of Sierra Chart and I think that the graphics are one of the areas that can really benefit from a designer touch.

Matt/John, are you also planning to improve the design of the Sierra Chart Trade Window buttons ?

This is definitely a possibility. So far we have received really good feedback on the current design, so we are on the right track.

We will do our best to enhance our customers experience with the current platforms which will include pricing as well.
Optimus is also working on new projects which we will announce here.
Thanks for the positive feedback.

In 2015 we will decide, but this will not affect current subscribers who take this offer now.
It is really likely that we will just continue it for free. Typically, I just like to work with dates, because this is not our software.

Matt, can you show how to automate a time based execution on R-Trader? Is this only for exits or for entry as well?

No, this is for entry or exit. You can specify a specific time for the execution.
Certain times at the close there could be another "push" or if you feel the move will exhaust itself by a certain time, you can either exit or enter a new position.
