Welcome to

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.

I have found the tools available in PicPick to be indispensable in my work.

It has:
-Screen capture
-Image editor
-Color Picker
-Color Palette
-Pixel Ruler
-Screen Magnifier
-Screen Protractor

I use the screen capture and magnifier all the time. The latter because I have a bunch of charts on my screens that are often small and I don't want to be bothered maximizing/minimizing screens just to have a closer look at recent price action. So, I hover the magnifier above the bars I want to look at, glance at the details and move onto the next chart. The protractor is also useful for those that want to measure the angle of trends.

PicPick tools is available here:

You've got several trading windows open, plus email, spreadsheet, browser, ..
A virtual desktop manager allows sorting them into virtual desktops - one for trading windows, another for office stuff ... You choose which one you want to see, the others are hidden but available at the touch of a button.
VirtuaWin is free and good.
