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 opened a small account and am using q trader in said account only because of the brackets. I have to say, I really love it so far. I also use X_Trader Pro which costs me $1500 per month with no built in brackets and CTS who's pricing is a bit all over but I get charged about $300 per month. I am happy so far with the $40 per month Q Trader! I'll let you all know if anything changes.

I think QTrader is really good value for money compared to other pricey platforms out there. Having said that I never tried either of those you mentioned.

Which platform is CTS? Is that Cunningham Trading Systems?

It is Cunningham and offers brackets and options on futures.

Outrights and spread charts? i think u told me but i forget
im hoping to get my Sierra switched to CQG .. still with TT feed.. and then get spread charts.. maybe a holiday project
Spread charts are fine with Qtrader except cant have all that i need .. grids of spread charts or combination.. of 15m, tick etc on same view without switching tabs

This is basic but I have looked everywhere in Q Trader, does anybody here know how to change the background color on a chart? I have found everything else.

Thanks

Hello again,

I am curious as to what the button my arrow is pointing to does or is and most importantly how I can un select it. It seems to center but since I pressed it last week I can't undo it/cant make it go back (Does this matter?).

Thank you guys.
