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.

Thanks Matt, I see that your firm is transitioning to ADMIS as a FCM. When do you expect that to complete. What Platforms do they support ? Will the older NT lifetime licenses be supported ?

ADM will keep supporting all the current platforms we have in addition to the platforms they have that are unique to them (OAK which is free). I expect the transition to be completed Dec 1, 2014.

there's little information about OAK platform right now. can you please share some intro/demo about OAK features, like you're doing for multichart? thanks

ADM

Re the ADM transfer, any thoughts/concerns about ADM being a commodity pool operator? Vision was as well if I'm
not mistaken.

Can you please tell me where are you getting the fact that ADM is a CPO? or Vision was/is a CPO?

ADM is an FCM, the financials are here: http://www.cftc.gov/ucm/groups/public/@financialdataforfcms/documents/file/fcmdata0914.pdf

ok, they have registered as such. but I don't know of that side of their operation.
Optimus is just an IB to them.

I did not take it as such. On forums, if we write short sentences, it may seem like an "Argument"
you have the right to know, and sometimes even an old dog can get educated (me)

Matt

PS. Sometimes I multitask and try to answer every question here in a timely fashion, it may seem abrupt but again that is not my intention nor my nature.

I was surprised to see mattz's post about streamlining process for sierra chart demo with rithmic was deleted for vendor self promotion. Yes, it is vendor promotion, but how else would users know about this nice feature, from a vendor that the community here has faith in?
