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

May I ask you where to get that 'Prometheus' add-on ?
It could be a very helpful tool for me.

Thanks a lot in advance !

... just to have a useless image as a background.


@Fat Tails,

The background really makes chart usefully pretty ... and as useful as you would have candle, BB and Kelner Channel color paintings.

Is it feasible to do the tweaks on your BB by a mere changing of the DrawRegion() command to FillPolygon command ? I'll want to give your BB a FillPolygon tweak.

Yes, it is possible, but I am not going to do it. Many of my indicators use DrawRegion() and replacing it just for having a background picture is too much work, as each of the indicator would require a custom plot.

@lolu

@Fat Tails has his hands full writing intelligent,useful, serious indicators that are worth their weight in Gold...

On the other hand ... wasting time and money on pretty things that don't serve a useful purpose ... is pretty much the story of my life...

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.
