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.

@jeronymite
Which broker has "hundredth of a pip"?

That would be 6 decimal places? 0.000001 pip?? I have only seen up to 5 decimal places... :O

Don't know if it has been asked before and maybe it is too late, but I really would like it if a disabled strategy would not get removed when changing dates in market replay.

I don't know how many times I setup different parameters for numerous strats and then realize the date is not correct. So, I get done setting the parameters, change the date, and poof gone, all of them. I usually realize my screw up the second I click, but despite my childish fit there is no going back.

It's not the hundredth pip that matters (and apologies if that was misleading), but it is the micro-lot that matters. MT4 can trade in micro-lots. NT8 should be able to trade in micro-lots also.

and ...

Ability to create more market replay accounts. For example, Replay102, Replay103 ...

Ability to run multiple co-dependent strategies simultaneously in BT and optimizer... as strategies would passes values to/from each other.

Batch download of market replay data. Right now, you can only download one day at a time. It will be great if we can download, let say, the whole contract of ES0911 from 6-11-11 to 9-11-11.

I 2nd all of these! Especially the first one.

Driving me crazy that I can't test strategies on more than Replay101. I like to let strategy run at same time I take trades manually using various ATM strategies to see how they perform against each other. So far I can only do this using simulated trading with live market data.

Some tweaks to the visual interface would be good. I'm sure these will be included..Also to make the process more memory and CPU efficient. again I'm sure this will be inlcuded (hopefully)..and to keep the tools extensible and somewhats backwards-compatible..

The ability to run scripts like MT4, where we can program anything to our hearts content. Program a shortcut key and it will execute once selected or pressed. I shouldn't be that hard to implement. They could modify the structure of the strategy's base code and have them run only once instead on every OnBarUpdate like a regular strategy does. Back when I used MT4, I used scripts everyday to alleviate and automate a lot of misc. and trade management tasks.
