Hello,

Re: Ironbeam w/ CME trading business, 2 questions please:

- do you receive TransferWise trading account deposits?
- what's the total commission and fees for a roundtrip (1 futures contract in and 1 out) for trading MES futures?

Thanks and looking forward,

I have something I forgot to ask at the AMA, hopefully you can help me out. When using FireTip X, lets say I open an ES position and I know you get that red line through the DOM/Advanced Trader indicating your current position(or rather your breakeven point). Now when you open 2 or more positions (at different values/prices) I notice the red line indicates your breakeven point (or profit/loss point) between all your current positions. I know I can look at current positions in Account Details, but is there a way I can mark my individual open positions on the DOM? If not is that something you could consider adding?

Thanks again, I appreciate all the information you guys have been giving out. I really appreciated that AMA.

Hey there,

I'm glad you enjoyed the AMA. That would be a cool feature... So you'd want a line for each contract's entry price basically?

We were just discussing how we can add more customization to plotting formulas on the DOM. So in theory we could create a formula that gives current position entry prices for all your positions and it would plot to the DOM as lines like the one you already see for current average entry price. I want to make sure I got your request right though, so is that what you'd be looking for?

Feel free to reach out with any questions. (312) 765 7228. There is a substantial risk of loss in trading futures and options. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. Full Details.

I want to make sure I got your request right though, so is that what you'd be looking for?

Basically, thats what I was looking for. Just to add on to that, instead of changing the red line (for your average entry point), maybe use some other type of marker on the DOM to indicate you have a position there, which could be a different color line, or even just a blue or red triangle in the top left corner of market price where your position is, maybe even use a number in the corner to signify how many contracts you have at a particular price.

Just some ideas how to put it on the DOM. It would just be a lot easier to be able to take a peak at the DOM and see all your current positions.

Thanks again for even reading suggestions. I think that says a lot about IronBeam.

I don't see any prior post history from you on this thread. So I assume you mean during the live Q&A?

I'd like to have some detail to attempt to defend your rude name calling.
@tturner86 can you find this person's question the he says he asked four times and send me the details.

Motivated by the information I found on this fine site, I'm considering moving to Ironbeam. I've seen some of the videos; however, the Ironbeam Firetip X platform does not have a comprehensive Users Guide, Help Library or other written documentation, which would have been helpful.

Anyway, from what I can determine, Firetip X has no Order Type that is similar to Trading Technologies' TT Trailing Limit Order. That order type is well-documented here:

library.tradingtechnologies.com/trade/tto-trailing-limit-order.html

And none of Firetip X's existing built-in Order Types accommodates a Start Time (like most Trading Technologies' orders do).

Maybe I overlooked something; so, is all of this correct and if so, can these features be added sometime soon?

Hey there -

I would also like to know what the question was. I did my best effort to answer every question that was in the list, and I am fairly confident I was able to do so.

@Big_Mike @tturner86 Were you able to find anything?
