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.

Thanks: 116 given, 433 received

I have 3 machines in my home running Win 8.1 now and we like them. Great OS for us. On my test/play laptop I also installed Ubuntu on a separate partition just to run some dev tools for python scripting/learning for DevOps training. However, it appear Win 8.1 is a very capable dev OS and so I installed alot of python scripting tools like Anaconda and iPython along with a free VM from Oracle that boots into a CentOS distro w/ all the peripherals pre-configured and working.

Our main media/infotainment system is a desktop attached to our TV running an Intel 256GB SSD with 16GB of RAM The boot time on that machine is about 20 seconds from pressing the power button to entering password and the desktop appearing, ready to go.

Many thanks to the site and all the contributors. Great source of info.
