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

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?
