futures io is the largest futures trading community on the planet, with over 90,000 members. At futures io, our goal has always been and always will be to create a friendly, positive, forward-thinking community where members can openly share and discuss everything the world of trading has to offer. 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. To succeed, you need to surround yourself with the right support system, educational content, and trading mentors – all of which you can find on futures io, utilizing our social trading environment.

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 don’t 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 can not think of a more distracting way to set up a chart, but it is entertaining to see what's possible!

@Fat Tails,

This background is it ... when the price is going sky-high then it is a Bull's moment, and when it is going down to the grass, then the Bears have it.

Could you share the pic in the background of the above chart ?

Unless you have a very specific taste, a google search for "stonehenge" and a click on the "Images" link on the left sidebar will provide you with more images like this than you can possible ever use

Black has always tended to strain my eyes, but then again so has a bright white, so I chose a bit of a yellowish color that is perfect for my eyes.

I found that having distinct objects in the background can be distracting, and a lot depends on the colors, but this background works for me ... I actually enjoy staring at the chart ... where I used to get bored and miss things... each to his own... use what works for you...
