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

1. The ability to save selfdefined colors.

2. The ability to see which template is loaded.

You can customize indicator colors, then right-click and hit 'save as default' right now in NT7.

Mike

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.

Hi Mike,

yes, but this is not what I mean:

I donīt want to set a default color for an indicator, but rather save a selfdefined color by itself (for further use with other indicators, lines, etc ...).

You mean a custom RGB color? I think you can do this using the default Windows color picker, it has option to save to a 'square' on the bottom left of the RGB wheel/picker.

That is the problem.
You can define a color, but not save it.
As far as you close and reopen the window, your color has gone and the square is white again ...
Have I overlooked something?

Wish List is short - be able to copy a chart and paste it inside current workspace, or inside another workspace, instead of saving a template.


I agree with this simple request.
My other request is to be very stable. It currently freezes up too often.

allow the user to change the background color to ANY colour they want, rather then using a set of standard colors. Yes I know you can add an indicator, but thats pretty pointless when there should be a way to enter a RGB color.

@tellytub
You can already do it by typing the rgb colours into the colour field (instead of selecting it). Try:
26, 24, 21
you should see a shade close to black but not exactly
