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.

Vaporware is a term in the computer industry that describes a product, typically computer hardware or software, that is announced to the general public but is never actually released nor officially cancelled.

Chart Cursor


I like to use charts with a black background and one of my constant annoyances is the fact that I can't change the style of the cross hair cursor. It's there to help, but it gets in the way by being too dominant.

It pure white, whereas I would like it feint grey, just visible so that I can see the indicator values in relation to price bars, without being distracted.


I would also like for the cross hair cursor to turn off when the mouse is off the chart. Moving the mouse over the charts often leaves an orphaned cross hair cursor, which is also distracting.

It would be super cool if the cross hair cursor could be turned on and off with NinjaScript and by a keyboard short cut. I know that CTRL-R and CTRL-Q can toggle cursor styles. I would like to turn on or off the cross hair cusror by holding down the space bar. So that the cursor is on only when the spacebar is down.

This may seem a bit OCD inspired, but I want to concentrate only on analysing the market when I am scalping. In a fast market a few seconds of distraction can mean the difference between success and failure.

Changing Instruments

NT has a well thought out UI on the whole, but one area where the ball has been dropped is the process of changing instruments.

We can create groups of instruments in the Instrument Manager, but you can't use those groups to change instruments on a chart unless the instrument is in the default group.

On the charts instrument menu, the only group visible is the default group and likewise on the toolbar button for changing instruments.

In the Data Series menu, you can see the groups, but you can't change the primary data series and that defeats the use of groups to organise instruments.

It is necessary to create a new chart in order to change the symbol. No other charting application I have seen makes it so hard to switch between symbols and it would be great if this omission was remedied in NT.

I agree that this can be improved. But changing the instrument is petty simple: when the chart is active, just type the instruments full name e.g. FDAX 12-12 or ES ##-## and press enter, that's it...

Hello,
...
Separately, one user at least noted that a third party (paid) indicator was causing a lot of his performance problems. It would seem to make sense then to offer some kind of profiling, so that users could determine what indicators were using up the most resources.

I second the notion of being able to profile indicators, to an idea which ones might be causing performance issues.

I'm sure a more sophisticated DOM and T&S has been mentioned. Has anyone heard a word on
implementation?

Apparently they are working on a DOM that incorporates some sort of volume profile or so, but I don't know anything specific...
