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

We did just post a "MountainChartStyle" in our forum under the file sharing section. Thought it might be relevant to this discussion.

We updated the script to allow for customization of the line, upper gradient and lower gradient.

You're going to end up missing trades because your spending to much time admiring the pretty chart.

Actually the graphics contrasts makes the indicators easier to read for these old tired eyes...


Besides... like a very shallow (cute... but shallow none the less) young woman told me in my youth... good looks never hurt ....

Very nice, you will share the code yes? Found a way to load up a bitmap or jpg?

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.

How do us non coders do this in a simple and super easy way?

It can get complicated, it interferes with other color zones. On the other hand you can talk to this guy....

With all the smoke on the left side, it was easy to foresee the eruption of ES 09-11 ....

I am confused now, I am sitting in my recliner, watching my charts, no longer trading.....

Actually it is not difficult to integrate a slide show with NinjaTrader, just collect various images from your last holiday.

Every 100 slides send a signal to the coffee machine for a new cup of Java....
