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

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.

just got an email about the upcoming webinar.

interestingly this email showed up in my inbox as well as my spam folder, meaning twice. and that's for gmail.

edit: should also mention that the "spam" email arrived this morning at 11:40 am, and the "inbox" email this evening at 11:07 pm. so maybe that was a cause of the changes. so far all emails from this evening are in the inbox folder.

Hmm. I made a lot of changes today at the root SWIP ASIN WHOIS level, I am hoping once changes propagate delivery will improve back to the level we enjoyed with the old IP. I spent hours today trying to get the old IP transferred to the new server, the owner of Steadfast was unwilling to do it and it really pisses me off.

Seems fine from my side now. I had to click 'Not Spam' for several mails over the last few days. But today I received one thread update notification and one webinar reminder, both to my inbox.

Edit: been receiving a lot more now. All coming into my inbox correctly.

Diversification is the only free lunch

Yet another tweak to our mail server config, trying to improve mail deliverability.

Please take a look at emails stamped as of this post or newer, and let me know if they are arriving in Spam/Junk or not.

Mike

All fine here, futures.io (formerly BMT) emails are not marked as spam.

I haven't touched the spam folder but the number of emails has been picking up from futures.io (formerly BMT). Including the email telling me replies to this thread

After finding the futures.io (formerly BMT) mails in the gmail spam folder, I went ahead and created a whitelist for futures.io (formerly BMT). This of course is not the best solution, but until gmail reacts to the futures.io (formerly BMT) changes it works fine for me.

To make sure Gmail never filters as spam mail from a certain contact or domain:

Follow the Settings link in Gmail.
Go to Filters.
Click Create a new filter.
Type the desired email address under From:
To whitelist an entire domain (all mail from an address ending in "bigmiketrading.com", for example), type just the domain name or the domain name preceded by '@'. To whitelist "bigmiketrading.com", for instance, type "@bigmiketrading.com" (not including the quotation marks).

Click Next Step .
You can click Test Search before, of course, to make sure you did not mistype.
Make sure Never send it to Spam is checked.
Click Create Filter.

The above is based on the document you can find here.


Regards,
ABCTG

As long as you are client of a worldwide mail-agent you are EXPOSED!
Mails are "spam-filtered" and are of course BASE to to the next unwanted SPY attempt.

SO: BE alerted

In any case if you want to protect your privacy - take a small eMail provider to get bulk mail
and forget about getting followed on any step you are doing.

Think about it!!
