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 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...

@TMFT,

How did you get the Bollinger band to paint. I can't seem to get it to paint on my chart. My background pic is in png format ... I'm unable to get jpeg/jpg pics to show up.

@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 ?

That is not my pic, I think it is from @PandaWarrior. There is no bamboo left on that picture, which is a clear indication that he must have been there just before the picture was taken.

I can not think of a more distracting way to set up a chart....

@josh

You really think so ....

Sometimes deciding what price will do comes down to heads or tails....

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.
