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 only the font would apply to the rest of the numbers.

I wish there was a way to make exceptions to code for websites I use a lot that would retain the changes and apply them every time I open the site. Like for instance, If I could make the background to this site black to be easier on the eyes but I know that is definitely asking too much lol. The code would some how have to be applied to every page and that would probably get tricky for me the user.

I will look again and see. I remember something breaking on larger font, not in threads, it all uses same code.

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.

Somewhat better. Btw I have gotten used to finding posts using quick links -> Today's Posts, which suffices one of my previous questions about the "recent posts" feature that was removed. I think I can live with these changes. I appreciate your attentiveness. If only my previous bosses I had in the webdesign field were as quick and eager to make changes, but I guess they didn't have the passion you have because they lived for the paycheck.

I want to make sure we are on the same page. To me, these are "large" now, I can't imagine making them any bigger.

As for the rest I am still working on them.

They are large enough now yes, if you make them any larger I'm sure other people would be in opposition even though in all honesty I'd like them a little larger. The way I'd really like it would be some what goofy looking to most but I guess I can settle for the middle ground. The only thing that needs to be changed is making the background for the links clickable so they go to the same page as their corresponding number link but I know you're probably working on that.


I don't know if you can expand to have more pages listed than 5 (perhaps 10-20), that would be helpful too.

I will check into background.

I cannot make more pages show because it is already about 70% of the maximum width of the forum when viewed in the minimum screen width configuration

If you are viewing the first or last page, it is shorter. But viewing the "middle" of a thread and it gets much longer/wider.

not bad, most viewed threads (14 days) make user want to explore more, most view thread 30 days etc...
but each thread needs an end arrow to go to the end of thread as of now user has to start from thread beginning.

The links themselves will now go to the newest unread post in that thread.

In addition, the queries should now be correct. Left side of table is a "Created in the last 14 day" window, and right side of table is "Activity within six months".

To spell it out, this means left side will show stuff that was created within the last 14 days only. If a thread was created 15 days ago, it will not be here.

The right side will show a thread that is 4 years old, so long as it has activity within the last six months.

I might tweak these numbers in the next few weeks as I see what results come up.

Coming soon

futures.io (formerly BMT) Unified Search

This is the most advanced vBulletin search function ever designed for any forum of any kind, anywhere.

I am still in testing mode, it is incredibly complex... but I just wanted to say that it will replace the top-right search bar and will feature tabbed results that will, with a single search query:

- Show post content (bodies)
- Show thread content (titles)
- Show attachment content (file attachments in posts)
- Show download files (in the Download section)
- Show users (search for usernames/profiles)

And more...

Hope to have some working screen shots in the next few days of this, and I may open it up to Market Wizards for beta testing after that.

Mike

Just a note, I spent some time on this tonight.

I will say that it is going to be AWESOME once done. Right now it is still rough around edges, major formatting problems, and very high CPU usage. I am working on these issues with the developer... I hope to roll this out to Market Wizard users in the next few days for beta testing.
