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.

-- Big Mike

I have added instant Video Playing capabilities to the site.

You can attach mp4 or flv files to your post, and then there will be a new "Play Video" link next to them for instant on-line playing.

Please note, avi, wmv, mov, and swf files are not supported. Maybe at some point in the future, but not right now.

I've attached two files to this post to demonstrate.

Keep the attachments trading related.

Please report any problems.

Improvement to the built-in charts you can easily embed into your post.

The bbcode "chart" will plot a chart that is always up-to-date. So if you post it today, April 15th, and you view that post two months later, it will show the up-to-date chart.

The bbcode "charts" (with the s at the end, for 'static') will plot a chart that is static or fixed in time at the moment you posted. So if you post April 15th, and view that post two months later, the chart will be two months old.

Examples:

[chart]aapl[/chart]

This will produce an always up-to-date chart of AAPL, like so:



[charts]aapl[/charts]

This will produce a static fixed-in-time chart of AAPL as of this post date, like so:



You can also chart futures and currencies.

Fixed a bug just now, it should now be working properly.

would it be a burden to add mbt pro to platforms and indicators, i was wondering if anyone uses the creation of formula studies and some of the other things that are available, if we can get some feedback i can pass it on and maybe we can add some things that will make it better..., i like this platform and it's based on a call for customers ideas and feedback and they added all of the things everyone asked for...

i realize there may not be many users here but perhaps if it exists they will come...



i am going to see if i can get anywhere with some formulas etc.. though my skills are very limited ...

just a thought

thanks mike no biggie

If you will create a lot of contest for this area, then yes I will do it. But I want to avoid having a bunch of subforums with little to no content.
