Welcome to

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.

Getting Website Information


I was wondering if anybody knows of the barbones basic script to display information from websites on the chart? This would be similiar to the JT Economic indicator idea, except just barbones. I just want a template so I can use it to build my own indicators and the one mentioned above is just way too involved----like 20 pages of code.

my programming experience is beginner---had 1 year of C++ and a semester of Java.
Now learning C#

I am going to use it to display program trading information that I would get off of websites, do my calculation, and display useful information on my charts to act as a reminder

Something like


using System


string ReadWeb(string encq)
string url         "" encq;
HttpWebRequest webRequest = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(url);        
webRequest.Timeout 20000;        
HttpWebResponse webResponse = (HttpWebResponse)webRequest.GetResponse();
Stream responseStream webResponse.GetResponseStream();        
string responseEncoding webResponse.ContentEncoding.Trim();
            if (
responseEncoding.Length == 0)
StreamReader responseReader = new StreamReader(responseStreamSystem.Text.Encoding.GetEncoding(responseEncoding));

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.
