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.

What actually is the problem, that server-side oco's are not available for TT platform services? Is it something that SierraChart can fix? I'd appreciate it.

How about a hot key for Horizontal Ray. Please?

Hello Mike !

Global settings - Customize toolbars - Tools and you can add Horizontal Ray to your toolbar buttons.

Thanks for the suggestion. I didn't even know SC could dock toolbars in chart windows.

But I am against taking up any more screen real estate. I'm even petitioning Anthony to remove the scrollbar and titlebars when the window is not focused, to save more space

Just need a hot key!

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.

Futures Edge on FIO

What value do you place on the webinars on FIO?

 
"I'm even petitioning Anthony to remove the scrollbar and titlebars when the window is not focused, to save more space."

...I second BigMike's suggestion to make the Sierra Charts lean and mean.

Sierra Charts.

There is a check box now for the scroll bar on each chart. Don't know for sure how new it is but I just noticed it.

Under "Global Settings", "General Settings" and then under the "General 2" tab there's a check box for the scroll bar for that little extra space!

Having the scroll bar and title stuff gone unless under focus would be ideal like BigMike suggests.

I also just saw a "Show Title Bar" option. But it is only for windows that are docked, which none of mine are. Hopefully they will extend this capability to undocked windows as well.

The idea is, if focused - shows titlebar + scrollbar. If not focused, shows neither. No functionality is lost this way, and a lot of screen real estate is saved.

I also got confirmation they are adding a hotkey for the Horizontal Ray to the next build.
