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.

Traders Countdown Clock for Win7

There is a freeware download called Traders Countdown Clock that could be set to alert at any interval. Ex/ 5 min before the half hour, etc. It does not work on Win7 64bit. Anyone know of something similar for W7? Tx

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.

This is an old post, but you had no answer

I did wrote a talking timer in Excel that I used for that purpose. It was working under Excel 2007, did not tried with 2010 version. Basically, you give the time and the ending time of the next bar.

Two minutes before the end: Speaker voice: "2 minutes before roll over"
At the time: Tell the actual time

If interested, PM me, I will look for it

This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer

Futures Edge on FIO

What happens to the S&P 500 when a new President takes office?

Referencing Windows 7, you can use the Windows Task Scheduler to automatically display a message box, send an email (there may be complications with some ISPs), and execute a program to produce an audible alert.
