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

Weeellll... you could just not go there.

(And sure, it does tend to pull you in. Did me today, once again.)

Bob.

I'd prefer an option to switch the thread off until this whole thing dies down and then have the ability to check for useful stuff when it's updated.

Otherwise it pulls you in but it's just a waste of time.


Plus, there are sometimes threads dedicated to stuff that's just of no interest to you. For example, a thread about Asian products or indexes when you don't trade them, or about a European product that you don't follow.

This way you would have the ability to switch those individual threads off.

Makes for a faster, cleaner scan of what's new and relevant to your interests.

I know this is controversial, but the thread starter should have deletion power. The thread starter knows what is relevant to the thread, and there are many starters so administration burden is lessened. I do not see any harm in deletion power. Keeping threads on point will sharpen the discussion and make for more enjoyable reading. It would also give Futures.io an advantage over other forums which do not allow it. It introduces a modicum of authorship which may give the forum threads a distinct flavor. If a thread gets somehow out of control, the administration can reverse and rescind powers as necessary.

Maybe in a journal, but in a public thread I would vote no.

I may be wrong but I think this was implemented at some point.

I see issues with this approach. I won't delve into those now as i'm on a portable device but personally I believe the current system which allows the thread owner to block an individual from commenting further by putting them on the ignore list to be effective.

Futures Edge on FIO
Hi guys,

Since the new framework is taking longer than anticipated, I decided to roll out our new color scheme to our current site instead of waiting for the launch of the new one.

Right now we are testing the new theme. If you would like to be part of the testing, and report bugs, please send me a PM so I can give you the details.

The changes from the user perspective are minimal, but the backend changes were extensive, so we need beta testers that use the site to help us find issues.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

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.
6)

Regarding the new theme - all beta testers, please report any outstanding issues other than the Wiki linked-keywords. I know that these are being stylized incorrectly, and am working to resolve.

I believe all other issues have been addressed, so if you still see something broken please report it immediately as I intend to roll out the new theme to all users as soon as the wiki stylized problem is resolved.
