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.

I'm using Chrome as well, but I'm having issues with some of the images attached to posts. When I click on the image to enlarge it, all I get is the transparent black background with a small box saying 'Powered by Highslide JS'. Some images are ok (like the png files earlier in this thread), but for others I need to go back to Firefox to be able to see them. Anyone else have this problem? I haven't found any obvious fix on Google for Chrome 15 and Win7 64.

This is fixed if you either 1) don't install adblock (not just disabled, but not installed) and/or 2) upgrade to the newest chrome developer build 17.0.942.


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.

I use Chrome and suggest it to most average users over any other browser because it includes and updates Adobe Flash and Acrobat plugins which are known to occasionally have security vulnerabilities. Most people don't bother updating these two but Chrome updates itself and these plugins in the background automatically. I also use it as my Acrobat reader on my personal machine(s).

Just recently at my families business I installed Chrome on some old (~600Mhz 512MB) Windows XP Embedded terminals using a USB connected thumbdrive. IE v6 would occasionally crash, some sites wouldn't work, sometimes they would get a virus. Now their browser is faster and stable and everyone is really happy.

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

Chrome is world's number one browser for a day
Web analytics firm data confirms trend to Chrome at weekends
Boston, USA & Dublin, Ireland; Wednesday, 21st March, 2012:: Google's Chrome narrowly became the world's top internet browser for the first time on Sunday 18 March 2012, according to StatCounter , the independent website analytics company. The firm's research arm StatCounter Global Stats reports that Chrome topped the polls in India, Russia and Brazil, all of which contributed to it becoming the number one browser for that day on a global basis.

"While it is only one day, this is a milestone," commented Aodhan Cullen, CEO, StatCounter. He added that Chrome still faces a battle to unseat its main rivals including IE and Firefox in many regions. Chrome remains in 2nd or 3rd place in China, United States and Germany, for example.

"Whether Chrome can take the lead in the browser wars in the long term remains to be seen, however the trend towards Chrome usage at weekends is undeniable. At weekends, when people are free to choose what browser to use, many of them are selecting Chrome in preference to IE," added Aodhan Cullen, commenting on the weekend surges in Chrome usage.

StatCounter data is based on over 15 billion page views per month (4 billion from the US) to the StatCounter network of more than three million websites*.
