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.

"Ghostery" tracking cookie blocker.

In case some haven't seen this. A free browser add-on that detects and blocks tracking cookies especially from ad firms and high profile sites like Google.

Would save time wiping them manually. The way I'm bombarded by ads for trading products and offers from "women in my area" when surfing the Webz some days feel like Tom Cruise in that scene from "Minority Report" (“Welcome back, Mr. Yamamoto")

Do you know if Ghostery also detects Flash Cookies?

In case it does not, I can suggest the free browser addon called "BetterPrivacy". It detects cookies created by flash applications and deletes them automatically.
