Welcome to

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.

thinkBack + Scan: Midpoint only?


TOS calculates Option Prices in thinkBack or Scan Mode as midpoint prices, which is VERY misleading (Garbage in/Garbage out) when there is a large bid/ask spread and/or low volume.

How can I force TOS to calculate with bid and ask prices, as it does correctly in SimulatedTrades?

Thanks for answering!
