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.

Do any one of these platforms mentioned above allow order modifications after order is open? For stop loss, trailing, etc?

Maybe I've miss understood you but doesn't every platform allow you to modify an order?

I haven't made the jump yet to any of these platforms, still trading WTI and Ngas via CFD's on MT4.

If you mean whether open orders could be modified after you initiated a position, the answer is yes.

You also have the ability to set trailing stops.

Thank you,

Which specific platform you would like to know about as far as trailing stops? Any of them?

Don't tell TT that as they're phasing out their serious trader platform for the new web one!

Few people embrace change. I believe Henry Ford once said that if he gave the people what they asked for, it would have been a faster horse instead of a car.

Innovation is messy sometimes. I can relate somewhat as FIO will be going through a migration to the new framework, and while superior in most every way, a lot of people will oppose it simply because they dislike change.

I understand some features you want may not be implemented yet in TT. Hopefully soon, or come at it from a different angle.

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)

Honestly trailing stops aren't that important to me as much as stop loss. I think some of these platforms (on demo at least) don't have the ability to set them. As long as I know they do on live then it's fine.

I am a bit surprised that you could not find it on a few of them(?), buy yes, they all have the stop-loss function in live trading.

Seems to me you are a beginner to futures so keep in mind: The placement of contingent orders such as a “stop-loss” or “stop-limit” order, will not necessarily limit your losses to the intended amounts, since market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders.

Thanks again!

Unless there is a herd that is starting to use the "new", and then everything you used before is all of a sudden worthless.
