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

Seems not to work for me: I don't see any tweets just empty space.

I'm using Chrome on Windows 7 64-Bit.

You are probably using some sort of blocking add-on. I've tested it with Chrome on multiple machines and it works fine here.

If you have no third-party add-ons, let me know what version of Chrome you are using.

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.

I see, should have checked this first: I'm using "Disconnect".

Some formatting changes to the forum homepage in order to incorporate the futures.io (formerly BMT) twitter feed, which I am now spending a lot more time on all day.

Please report any problems.

Mike,

Can I remove the twitter format and have the homepage as before ?

Thanks.

No sorry, the changes were too extensive to make it a user selectable option.

So in this case ("too extensive to make it a user selectable option")

why not to have the tweets section in a different place but not at the homepage

I'm asking because it was very good (at least, for me) as it was before.
I used that section all the time (the removed section).

I'm sure that many users will like the new homepage
But with the same time, other will not

Hope you will consider the above.

Thank you for your hard work and truly wonderful site.

All the best,

Haim

What was removed was the number of threads and number of posts statistics, which I would imagine you were not using all the time. The other part that was removed was the title of the last post of a section. This information is contained within the "New Posts" button on the navbar but categorized as a list of new posts instead of just one post per subforum.

On a site where there are usually hundreds of posts per day, I didn't think seeing the last five or so posts on the homepage would make any difference. You can also still see recent posts in the chatbox, and again it will display a list which I believe is more useful than just the single most recent post per section.

are you seeing many incoming links from the twitterverse? I followed one yesterday. I found a post I would not have seen otherwise....(because of the large volume of posts you get) I think it is a nice idea and interesting way of pushing certain parts of the site as well as reaching possibly a different audience. Nice Job.

Perhaps a design compromise is to use a smaller window on top of the page for tweets to just show the last tweet with a vertical scroll bar for those who value older tweets from the 400 gurus that drop in.

Cheers!

You can send me a PM. The widget only has a dark and light theme, no customizable options -- and I couldn't figure out the CSS for it yet or if it was even possible.
