Increased the daily limit of # of thanks that can be given from 50 to 100 per day. Needed to do this because of all the new journals, I had to thank more posts than usual

Added strikeout as a bbcode option.

It is the "S" in the editor toolbar, or just wrap around [s]text here[/s] blocks.

Reorganized all the posts in the Platforms and Indicators subforum.

I created new subforums for each major platform represented on futures.io (formerly BMT), and moved the corresponding posts to the new subforum. The remaining posts in the primary category are either not platform specific, or are for platforms in which a designated subforum does not yet exist.

Platforms and Indicators - Big Mike's Trading Forum

All the "Moved" links will automatically disappear in 7 days and it will be 'cleaner' looking at that time.

Any Elite Member can now set his/her own custom user title, which shows up directly under your username in the left profile section of each post.

To change:
https://futures.io/profile.php?do=editprofile

Then go down to "custom user title".

After a lot of troubleshooting and rewriting of code, the Live Topic feature is now working again.

If you view a thread where a post has been made within the last 15 minutes, and while you are viewing it someone makes a new post to the thread -- you'll automatically see the new post. It will show up under the newest post with a little note saying it was a "Live Topic update".

This makes quick back-n-forth posts between users very easy, you never have to leave the page or refresh.

A few things to know:

- When you view the thread, the last post must be made within 15 minutes. If the last post is older than 15 minutes, you won't poll the server for new posts -- so even if someone makes one, you won't see it. This is to save server resources.

- If you leave a thread up for over 15 minutes and no one posts to the thread, same as above -- it will stop polling the server for new posts, so even if someone makes a new post you won't see it unless you manually refresh.

Basically this is for quick back and forth posting within an active topic.

I've made it so that News and Current Events updates (new posts) will no longer show up on the forum homepage next to the chatbox. This is because recently this subforum has seen a lot of activity which not everyone is interested in seeing.

Created a new video which shows the five most common/powerful ways to find things on futures.io (formerly BMT).



This goes out in the welcome emails sent to new users.

Sorry for the 7 minutes of downtime around 4:45pm Eastern Time on the forum.

When I came back into my office, the server load was 7 times normal and was spiking to almost 20 times normal. This was making the site pretty slow today while I was away.

I was trying to isolate the problem and had to restart the database service, the first time in 208 days. For the moment, the load is still high but not extreme. I'll be monitoring it.

Internet Explorer 8.0.6001.18702 and Safari 5.0.5

Works well. No problems.


Firefox 4.0.1 and Opera 11.11

Works well on the top right, but hovers over the links on the bottom right position.

Our CDN now has edge location in Stockholm, Sweden - so users near there should experience faster load times on our site now. This makes 6 edge locations in Europe and 19 locations total worldwide.

Our server is physically located in Chicago (although we are moving soon to a brand new state of the art facility in Montreal, Canada in a few weeks). Here is the list of current CDN edge servers:

As requested here:


A new subforum has been created:
https://futures.io/elite-automated-trading/

This subforum will hold general discussions about backtesting, optimizing, walk forward testing, or general techniques used in automated trading. They are all Elite Only.

For platform specific threads, there are three subforums under Elite Automated Trading:

https://futures.io/elite-ninjatrader-automated-trading/

https://futures.io/elite-easylanguage-automated-trading/

https://futures.io/elite-other-platforms-automated-trading/

Use the subforums if your thread is relevant only to a certain platform. I will add other platforms here when there is a need.

I am moving posts around from the prior home of "Elite Group Trading", which is what I renamed to Elite Automated Trading since it was already mainly full of automated type questions.

Posts that were previously in the Elite Group Trading section that are not related to automation have been moved to the main Elite Circle forum. I am in the process of doing this now, it will take me a few hours to finish and a lot of activity will show up on the home page as I move things around.

The long standing bug in the Downloads section where when you click to Filter by letter it wouldn't let you advance to the next page properly has been fixed.

It is now possible to filter private messages both in your Inbox and your Sent items box. Previously it was only possible to search/filter on the inbox.

To search/filter, go to your private message box, then at the bottom you'll see the box for filter. If you are in your inbox it will say "Sender" so you could search by user who sent you a PM. If you are in your sent items box it will say "Recipient" so you could search by user you've sent a PM to.

There is now a 10% chance that the main site User Poll will show up to the right of one of the posts on a thread (10% chance per page to show one time).

This change was made as an experiment to see if the user participation (voting) increases.

Feedback requested --

Before I integrate this into futures.io (formerly BMT) pages and threads, I'd like for some of you guys to test it out and report back.

View Quick Market Charts - Big Mike Trading Forum

The purpose is just to be a quick, simple way to view a chart. It is not to be very advanced. Please test out various symbols including futures, stocks, forex currencies, etc. When I am finished fully integrating it into futures.io (formerly BMT) it will make more sense than it does as a stand-alone app right now.

Works good, would it be too difficult to include other time frame selections?

Timeframe: 5 minute | hourly | daily | weekly

Also it would be nice to have 2 side by side to compare or even 4 , just a thought

I also want to make sure you guys are testing out the equities side, type in some tickers and make sure it is working.

Here is FAZ for example:

The usual spot, home page - under forums:

But now there is about a 10% chance you'll see it to the right of a post (5th post on the page) as well.

There is a new BBcode available called "chart".

Please test and report back any problems and feedback to this thread..

I plan on incorporating it into the site more in the coming days...

[chart]symbol[/chart]

For example:

[chart]CL[/chart]

Will insert a dynamic chart of CL into the post. If you insert it in July 2011 and come back to the post in Demceber 2011, the image will be a December 2011 quote. It is dynamic.



It should recognize all major future symbols, equity symbols, ETF symbols, and currency symbols.

[chart]GOOG[/chart]

Google:




[chart]EUR/USD[/chart] or [chart]eurusd[/chart] (both work)

EUR/USD




[chart]FAZ[/chart]

FAZ:



ES:

Made some adjustments to the minimum width requirements for viewing the home page, as prompted by:



Basically, if you view it with less than 1400px wide, it will not produce a scrollbar now --- but, it also will not look real good. A compromise I suppose. Viewing with 1400px wide or greater should be fine, same as before.

It is now possible to directly show a Screencast image on futures.io (formerly BMT) without having to click on it first to see the image URL.

Just wrap the normal Screencast URL around the new BBcode tags "screencast", example:

[screencast]http://screencast.com/t/nhgzH5fFl[/screencast]

Notice it is the short regular URL given to you by Screencast.

This will produce:

Perhaps this is my browsers fault (FF 5.0), but when I click on the "Elite NinjaTrader Automated Trading" subforum on this page, I receive the FireFox error message stating that ' the page is not redirecting properly'. Clicking on "Elite EasyLanguage Automated Trading" subforum link in the Automated Trading forum does work and sends me to this subforum.

Hmm, please try it now. I didn't see anything wrong and it worked fine for me, but I re-saved the forum settings so maybe it will be fixed now.

Thanks Mike for looking into it. Sadly, it still happens, both on FireFox and Opera (see attached screen). It's not a terrible big deal, since if I go back in my browser, and retry, it often works - eventually I'll get there.

Thanks Mike for looking into it. Sadly, it still happens, both on FireFox and Opera (see attached screen). It's not a terrible big deal, since if I go back in my browser, and retry, it often works - eventually I'll get there.

Regards,

Yes, it happened to me just now. I will have to open a trouble ticket with the developers of vbseo, I can't see anything wrong on this side.

@Jura, would you mind making a video duplicating the problem? I sent the details plus my own video to vbseo support, but they are saying it is just my machine.... lol.

See attached. I've made tried to make a video with the problem in CamStudio, but I hope the quality is good enough (though the file size is nicely small now). If it's not clear enough, I'll make another.

Edit: Made a new one with quality set to highest - but can't say that this one is a lot better but at least this one shows my user name, so they can't claim you just send them two self made videos.

@ Big Mike,

Just to confirm, same problem here. Cannot access the NinjaTrader Elite Thread for Automated Trading. But there are some differences:

Firefox: Generates a message that the transfer can never be terminated.

Opera: Gives me a notice on transfer status, allowing me to access the subforum manually. See screenshot "Opera".

Internet Explorer 8: Works.

Safari 5: works.

I am working on it, it may take a couple of days because what they want me to do requires a major upgrade to a core module on the forum.

Unfortunately, the chatbox is now restricted to Elite Members only. All members (and guests) can still view the chatbox, but only Elite Members can write new chats. This decision is due to abuse of the chatbox, which almost exclusively comes from non-Elite members.

Sorry guys.

Tapatalk updated to the newest version. This version is supposed to add "Thanks" support.

Mike

The client app was updated today, at least in the Android market. To "thank" a post, just click on the post and it will popup the option to use Thanks. I tested it and it works.

With some luck, this version may improve the stability of the app (errors) as well. Not crossing any fingers...

I'm proud to announce some special deals for Elite Members only. We negotiated these specials as a way to say thanks for the support to our Elite Members.

- $50 commission credit at Velocity Futures after 100 RT trades, new accounts only
- $50 off MultiCharts lifetime license, new purchase only, not to be combined with other offers
- $50 off first monthly IQfeed subscription, or 20% off an annual subscription, new accounts only

The details are here:
https://futures.io/elite_partner.php

futures.io (formerly BMT) does not receive any compensation for these referrals. Even though we believe these to be great products and services, you should always do your own research before doing business any a company.

Not sure if it is working properly?

I get 20 Mbps from other tests and less than 1 Mbps from that test for some reason

This one usually works pretty well Speed Test | Bandwidth | Broadband Internet Services

just found this, seems to work pretty well

Find out and monitor how fast your Internet connection is.
Find out and monitor how much Internet traffic you consume.
Verify whether your ISP charges your Internet usage fairly.
Detect a suspicious network activity on your computer.
Perform simple network tests such as ping and trace route.
Be notified about excessive Internet usage.

Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test might also be a solution. you can check the ping time from your office to chicago, frankfurt or wherever you trade

Yes, the app I installed is there portable version. But for whatever reason, it seems unreliable compared to the main site, which I use and recommend as well. Pingtest.net is probably more useful for traders.

Over the two years since futures.io (formerly BMT) was created, I've noticed a lot of very distinct and unique patterns when it comes to vendors who try and use futures.io (formerly BMT) as free advertising. Some other sites call these people "shills". I just call it a violation of our forum rules.

I have decided that in order to curb this behavior, I will implement restriction on posting in the "Vendors and Product Reviews" section of the forum. Regular members must now have 10 posts to be able to post in that section.

Any vendor who wishes to respond to posts made in that section are free to do so, as long as they follow our forum rules.

Due to an error on my part, the Downloads hit count (in the Downloads section) for data containing the number of times an indicator was downloaded from July 16th to July 30th was deleted.

This doesn't effect the "most popular downloads ever" stats, only the "popular downloads in the last 30 days" stats. So it will correct itself in 2 weeks.

Oops.

Threaded Hybrid mode has been removed. 99.9% of you don't know what it is, much less used it. It was causing a lot of server errors due to a PHP issue with this older function of the forum, so I just nuked it entirely.

Perhaps this is my browsers fault (FF 5.0), but when I click on the "Elite NinjaTrader Automated Trading" subforum on this page, I receive the FireFox error message stating that ' the page is not redirecting properly'. Clicking on "Elite EasyLanguage Automated Trading" subforum link in the Automated Trading forum does work and sends me to this subforum.

Regards,
Jura

I believe I've worked-around this issue for now (by renaming the subforum):

https://futures.io/elite-automated-ninjatrader-trading/

Please let me know.

If you have bookmarked a direct link to the Arcade, you'll need to change it (the new links are on the navbar).

I had to change a few things due to some worm attacks aimed at the arcade.

Please report any problems.

I just looked at those, and no where do I see a "play game in new window" option. Perhaps a screen shot will help me. I even did a keyword search on the page, not seeing it.

Don't know why I bother to make a screenshot since I don't use the arcade (found by clicking the A, then the list of A-games including 'in new window'-link will show), but anyway:




Quoting 
The link to the arcade has been updated, please refresh your links or bookmarks.

Thanks, I couldn't find it otherwise. With this I should be able to find and fix it soon.

Moved "Unanswered Posts" off the header and into the Quick Links menu. Also widened "Webinars / Training Videos" section, since a lot of people don't see it. Hopefully they will now.



Please report any problems.

Great change I think, really makes it stand out in a non-obtrusive or like SCREAMING WEBINARS HERE way.

And also people new to the forums may be going "huh? webinars? I guess I might check that out eventually" I think with the change new people will go "Webinars.. hmm ok.. training videos? Ok cool some training, im gonna check that out now".

I have made a change so that non-Elite Members can now view the thread titles of Elite Circle threads. They can see only the title of the thread (a few words). They cannot see post content, they cannot download anything.

This is something that has been requested for a long time. I will see how it goes, I may change it back, or it may stay this way.

Regular users can now see deletion notices.

An example of a deletion notice:



I decided to enable this simply because of the confusion that is sometimes caused by a post that is removed. 99% of post removals are pure spam. Remaining post removals are almost always removed by the user themselves, not the moderators. But on occasion, a post is removed by a moderator for being rude. The above is an example of that.

Now you can't view the post content of a deleted post, but you can now at least see that a post used to be there.

New feature enhancement on the site tonight.

Now when uploading image attachments to the site, and then inserting the image into the body of a post using the IMG tag, you will no longer see the (duplicate) thumbnail of the image below the post in the attachment area of the post itself.

Old way:
1) Upload image to futures.io (formerly BMT) server.
2) Insert into body of post using IMG tag and the URL of the attachment.
3) IMG showed up in body of post.
4) IMG thumbnail also showed up below post in attachment area.

New way:
1) Upload image to futures.io (formerly BMT) server.
2) Insert into body of post using IMG tag and the URL of the attachment.
3) IMG shows up in body of post.

Please report any problems.

Thx,
Mike

This seems like a great idea, I've often wondered about that. I have a related question and maybe it's because I just haven't put together the right combination of events, (so be gentle). How come on some posts that are not in the Elite Section but in the "open to the public" threads, there are statements/comments that I am required to register (in my case log in) to view the attachment/chart? As an example, several of your charts posted on the Euro 6E thread require this, but not all. Why is that?

You are probably describing what Guests see. Don't browse the forum as a guest. Images in post bodies are hidden to guests to incentivize them to register and login.

So if I understand your reasoning, "incentivize them to register and login." With the "New way," all images in all threads will be hidden form everyone not loged in.
