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.

Atom - the Notepad++ alternative

I've been using Notepad++ as my default notepad for more years than I can remember. Tonight I was fed up with a bug in my installation that constantly slows down my productivity, and on a whim searched for an alternative to Notepad++.

I found Atom:
http://atom.io

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


Short version - check it out. I think I'm uninstalling Notepad++.

Sublime Text

Big Mike,

If I knew you were in the market for a text editor I would have recommended Sublime Text. I've been using it for my programming for years, and it will run on just about any OS. What I love most is multi-line editing. I can't count the times I needed to edit every instance of a line of code, word or sentence and to be able to do it all in one shot is a lifesaver.

Not proselytizing, just putting it out there in case you're still looking.

I saw it and dismissed it when I saw Atom was open source

Multiline editing is supported by Atom too, (ctrl+alt, then select lines) ...

Sounds like I should give Atom a try too! I'll give it a test drive.
