As the pages are too wide for my 17" laptop screen with 22 or even 20 point type, could you please add a "mobile" option? (Usually m. before the URL or /mobile after the .com, but before the rest of the page's URL). Then its "not as horizontal" to view.

What is the resolution of your screen? futures.io (formerly BMT) requires a 1280 px wide screen as minimum, I can't imagine any system within the last 10 years having less...

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.

Ah, I see. (This one is probably 1024 x 768, though 17" wide) , Next time I'll use my other one with the 17.3" screen and probably higher resolution. Thanks.

What is the make/model of this system?

I checked our analytics, only 4% of traffic to the site uses less than 1280px resolution. Even 4% seems high, I am curious what you are using and how old it is. I know there are tablets with 1024px resolution (Apple) but a desktop/laptop??

Its an HP 8710, which has the 16 x 10 aspect ratio I prefer (for the extra height) to that of everything newer, which all have the 16 x 9 ratio designed to mirror the present "letterbox" TV screen format. I hadn't even known of the "m." (or /mobile) formatting until the owner of a (non-financial) website told me that m. was the way to somewhat "square up" the pages.

Hmm, well it is 7 or 8 years old but the specs claim it's 1920x1200 so I have no idea why yours is set to 1024x768.

16:10 vs 16:9 is not the issue here. There is no issue with that.

Sorry Mike, I meant 1680 x 1050. (The lower res. was something I saw running a fix in Safe Mode). Anyhow, on the site that suggested that I use their m. prefix version, which DID get rid of the excess width, I can assure you they didn't code that option for me; they did it for their many users who go on their site on handheld devices like (I guess) iPhones.

I'm sure you also have a lot of users who do, so you might consider that option (or /mobile if that does the same thing) basically for THEM, like the non-financial site I meant did. BTW, you're of course correct about 16 x 10 vs. 16 x 9 being irrelevant; the (IMO, mistakenly ditched) 16 x 10 basically means extra height more than extra width.

If you are using a mobile device, then when you visit futures.io (formerly BMT) you will see a banner that says to install Tapatalk. It's the best way to view futures.io (formerly BMT) on that device right now.

See futures.io (formerly BMT) v5.0 for future plans:
