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.

-- Big Mike

Spoken like a true Texan

LOL, nothing to do with liking Dell or where they are based. Mainly the decision came down to two things: 1) Dell is newer, 2) Dell uses half the power, which should produce half the heat.

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.

Got the monitors, but the cables won't be here until tomorrow (long cables to run into next room over/closet).

Here are the four Dell U2412M's hooked up.

I've ordered a fifth, to be here early next week. I got a price of $279 on the 5th!! I am currently trying to negotiate down my previous order from last week @ 309, down to 279, but not sure that is possible.

Neat set-up, but I'm sorry I just can't resist asking this question:

Do you suffer from the sniffles or do you just happen to spend a lot of time browsing ..............?
