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

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.

Mike

i was wondering if there is enough interest from users of mb trading 's platform to warrant an added section, but not sure if anyone even uses it besides me, so i was curious

It seems as though even through their forums the majority seems to reside as currency traders and use meta trader

thx for the explanation.

personally i only use whatever available here at bmt and each selected instrument appears to be adequately profitable by its own right, for me any way.

it seems mike already appears to be ok with your idea. so why not give your idea a chance to mushroom perhaps into something significant. best of luck.

Futures Edge on FIO
I've made changes to all our webinars so that they are now hosted directly on our servers instead of the Amazon CDN. I am running Wowza to do this, and I made the change because of occasional problems out of my control with Amazon (low bandwidth situations).

Please report any problems with the webinars. If you had any problems in the last few hours -- ignore, this was during the transition phase.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

BTW, if you are one of the users who previously encountered playback problems (buffering, erratic pause/play problems) then I am eager to hear from you as to whether it is improved now.

File attachment size for 7z, rar, and zip attachments has been increased from 256MB per attachment to 1G per attachment. I noticed a couple users bumping into the old limit, so why not increase it?

Hi,

I have made a global change to all user profiles. The change is to the default Message Editor, which will effect the way the editor functions when you write new posts on the site.

I have changed everyone's default to "Standard Editor". This solves a lot of problems users were often complaining about (embedded images not working, YouTube links broken on edits, etc). This change also solves a lot of formatting issues that happen when users cut and paste text into the editor box in certain browsers.

If you want to revert back to the old editor, go to UserCP from the top nav bar, then click Edit Options on the left, then scroll down and change the Message Editor Interface to "Enhanced Interface - WYSIWYG" and submit. BTW, WYSIWYG stands for "what you see is what you get". I recommend you do NOT go back to the old editor, but instead use the standard editor.

Below are screenshots on how to revert back, in case you want to:

I am contemplating disabling "Visitor Messages" for all users.

Visitor Messages are often confused for Private Messages. The difference is one is publicly visible to everyone, and one is private.

When you click on someone's user profile, the first 'tab' in their profile that displays is their Visitor Message profile (assuming they have it enabled, which most do). You can then write messages here. This is kind of like Facebook's "wall".

What I find is that 99% of people don't realize the message is public. Their intention was to write a private message, not a public one.

Let me know if you have an opinion on this.

Mike
