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.

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...
