On every thread, under page navigation is 'top of page' button.

Forgive me Mike!! Found it. Reason for apparent craziness is my browser is set to 1024 px wide and your site minimum width is something much wider. I run other stuff on my wide monitor and not into super wide fluid layouts that waste screen real estate.

Gripe gripe...

1200px wide is the minimum, which covers about 95% of visitors.

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.

Thanks Mike.

I will stick with my 1024px wide. No way do I want to be part of any majority of visitors (aka traders) here. We all know how the majority performs.

Hmmmmm

This forum works better than most - the way image embedding works is very neat.

One thing I hear often - but this is thread specific - is that people can't easily find stuff like the latest version of the GOMI tools - I send lots of people here for them and they struggle to find them.

Apart from that, I have no gripe.

If you have any questions about the products or services provided, please send me a Private Message or use the futures.io "Ask Me Anything" thread

Request

Hi Big Mike,

I recently had an issue of trying to create a strategy using PriceActionSwing indie and got an error message.
Ninja trader tech came and fixed the problem but it was caused by this:

"The enumeration in the PriceActionSwingOscillator indicators (PriceActionSwingPro also) SwingTypes, using it's own namespace. This prevents it from being called from another indicator or strategy."

If it is not possible to create a strategy with a futures.io (formerly BMT) indie, it would be nice to have an automactic note on the Indie or the creator of the Indie: do the above.

Had the same problem with MacdPredictorHMA etc. NT said they were not suppose to spend time, fixing indicators from other sources and with MacdPredictorHMA a lot of futures.io (formerly BMT) members ran into the same issue I found out from another NT tech while he was fixing it.

Thank you for doing such a great job with futures.io (formerly BMT).

PS: Sometimes, I like to go back in my journal and find a post during a certain time in the year. Is there a way, an index could be created, so I do not have to look through every single post. It can take a long time to try and find something. Sometimes I am looking for a set up, an attachment or price action during a month or a topic etc.

Had another idea: you will mention at times during recordings: people may not be addressing certain things in their journal. Would it be possible to have an outline that could be created, so we can remember to address certain things. Maybe there could be a number of automatic outlines, we could choose from and then edit it? So: time, set up, exit, emotions, following plan. This could be an outline posted in the body of a post? If one wanted to do this etc.

A minor issue: my current score in the game section does not get updated, hate that.

Yes will be great when search is improved. What I find is most of the stuff is there while performing a search...but the dialog box & results displayed goes away after clicking & we need to get retype in search again.
