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

A few notes

Elite, the name, is from The Elite Circle - the name of my BBS in 1993. A throwback, but it works.

Organization is the key here. Ability to eliminate some duplicate categories.

It would be possible to set the default for Elite members to be Elite=yes, which would also prevent accidental posting of Elite content like indicators outside the paywall.

I'm open to discussion on the implication of such a default.

This would take care of the issues I have.

Also, maybe a ColorCode? A slightly different color for Elite and NonElite?

I think this is the way to go, I would like the board better organized as well. NT Programming should be together, and now there will be AddOns, BarsTypes, ChartStyles, DrawingTools, ImportTypes, Indicators..... This could get very messy with NT8 having 2 of everything.

futures io Member Poll

How many trading buddies do you follow or share with?

 
The paywall really separates the serious forum users from the who knows what public. Before I joined futures.io (formerly BMT), I was dismayed of the number of foolish posts on other forums. I tried futures.io (formerly BMT) thinking if you got to pay then those would be serious traders.

If Elite threads are mixed with non-Elite then I presume the non-Elite reader would see an icon indicating it is an Elite thread.

The Elite member viewing a thread list would be presented with the world view and probably never use the non-Elite filter. I don't like to filter my possibilities. So there would be a diminishment of quality for me.

One goes to the men's club to relax and be in the company of like minded people. There is an atmosphere to it.

Search idea

I think "search this thread" would be enhanced if the default was intra-word matches. For instance a search for "time" would yield "posttime" etc. instead of only the whole word "time". Even better would be some advanced search options "whole word", "match case" etc. like a text editor would offer.

Can you clarify why it would be diminishing quality? I'm not following

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.

What if each individual thread could be flagged as Elite (like a boolean, true/false).

The flag would prevent unauthorized access by non-Elite's, and would allow threads to co-exist in a single category such as "Trading Journals" without their being an "Elite Trading Journals" category.

Excellent idea. Would also compact the forums which i like.


Big Mike View Post
I ran this idea by @sam028 and he provided some good feedback regarding how many users may pay no attention to the Elite flag during thread creation, meaning that without realizing it all the sudden overnight the majority of new content could switch from being Elite to non-Elite. This would be very detrimental to the site. Any suggestions to over come this?

Hmm I think @sam028 may have a good point.

Getting back to the new framework topic, I've been making a lot of progress.

I've written code to deal with all the old URL's in posts and threads and forum views, so that they get rewritten to the correct location on the new site.

The exception is links to a specific page number in a thread. For example, a link to page #11 in this thread (not post 11, just page 11) will not work on the new site, and will just redirect to page 1 (always page 1). This is a limitation of the conversion process. I am not overly concerned, I rarely see this type of link on futures.io (formerly BMT) - instead it's usually a permalink to a specific post, which does work.

I have also started to receive some work from one of the developers. I have a long list of projects, and he is finally making some progress.

Two major areas that still need a huge amount of work are the Downloads area, and the Webinars area. I think I will try and tackle them in a few weeks.

The beta site is still closed right now to you guys. I will open it again soon.

Mike

Google search


@Big Mike

Not sure if this has been discussed....

I do not know if its me not knowing how to use it or what but for me the futures.io (formerly BMT) search is horrible, almost never find what I am looking for.

Would it be possible/interesting to you to embed Google search on the site? I have used it on other sites and it seems to work very well. I do not know if that would cost money or what, just a thought.
