The community is one of the friendliest you will find on any subject, with members going out of their way to help others. Some of the primary differences between futures io and other trading sites revolve around the standards of our community. Those standards include a code of conduct for our members, as well as extremely high standards that govern which partners we do business with, and which products or services we recommend to our members.

At futures io, our focus is on quality education. No hype, gimmicks, or secret sauce. The truth is: trading is hard.

With futures io, you can find honest trading reviews on brokers, trading rooms, indicator packages, trading strategies, and much more. Our trading review process is highly moderated to ensure that only genuine users are allowed, so you donít need to worry about fake reviews.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading sites:
  • We are here to help. Just let us know what you need.
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive in our community.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendors advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, we can help you find it.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

I took the three day trial but I don't need it bad enough to pay $55.00 for it. Plus it seems to hog a bit more resources than I am willing to give during live trading.

I first thought you made a bad joke, but then I saw that there is really somebody selling this for money.

The indicator code is rather simple, and I think that it is rather a gadget, not something that should be sold.
Here is a poor man's version that allows you to insert a background picture on the price panel.

If all the background storm 'n' smoke do not conform to, or indicate price movement, then I'm not for all these background stuff. @TMFT should have a go on a script that makes the background to indicate and not to "ecstasyse" ... I want to believe that he can do it, or is doing it.

Now what we need is to be able to play videos or live news

Mike

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

You did not mention that the videos need to be inserted close to the spikes to explain what happened.

Could anyone familiar with Graphics.FillPolygon tell me if it would help color the zones with the Image in the background?
