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

Hi @mastertrader,

A screenshot would help to understand your problem.

Thanks @aslan. I don't know how I missed that...

Requests:

1. Auto e-mail update on new releases, or an option to subscribe to one, along with a very brief change log on release.

2. Concurrent Non CLR version with new releases, and listed version number for Non CLR version.

3. Label in titlebar of running SC instance if CLR or Non CLR version.

Ok, do what Aslan says and also change the default tool to the hand tool under Tool Settings >> General >> After Single Tool Use Change To: Hand. Then (this is where the magic happens), under Tool Settings >> Chart Values, check the second box for "Always on When Using Other Tools".

All this lets you drag the chart every which way and still have the cursor on all the time. Phew.

Enabling the always on when using other tools, makes my charts look super jumpy, as they auto scroll in other timeframes while I am using the drawing tool. Do most people use this setting?

Yes, but not in any official capacity.

Mike

Will they implement requests posted here only for futures.io (formerly BMT) members, or do we have a better chance also posting through their support board?

I am biased of course.

I've seen them implement majority of requests made here. You can of course to take the risk to post directly on their forum, I am sure they prefer that

I prefer you post here

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.
6)

That's great to see. Posting on their forum may indeed be a risk for me, as I have a lot of potential requests , and don't want to get yelled at , lol. Although I guess the only downside here is they probably don't have time to ackowledge/confirm/reject/ridicule our requests here, so we won't know the status of them.

Being new to SC and testing it out, I have a long list of either requests, or questions on how to do something. I know SC support seems to get annoyed (understandable) by "excessive posting" by one user on their boards, so wondering how would you recommend to address them here, ie one post, individual appropriate threads, etc?

You can start new threads as needed (if topics don't already exist) here in the Sierra subforum on futures.io (formerly BMT), there are SC users here that will help.

Mid Line with option for a Straight and Continuous

For the "High Low for Time Period study" an option to plot a mid line with an optional ability to plot continuous would be nice.

You can plot a midline using the Average of Two Subgraphs study, but not sure what you mean by ability to plot continuous.
