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.

'Show Patteren' doesn't work in Chart

I select some simple patterns (channel up/down, double bottom, etc) and choose 'show patterns' in upper right corner of the chart, and nothing shows up in the chart.
Since I use ES weekly chart from 2010, I am pretty sure at least 'channel up' should show up.

This weekend I got some issues with TOS.

TOS is a nice tool, but I feel it tries to do too much.

I didn't get any either. Then I tried SPY and got one pattern. Try it on GE and there's several. It really seems hit or miss on what stocks it catches patterns in. But, they do seem pretty reliable in that price will at least touch the areas it marks (key word being "touch").

I have the same issue on ToS with automatic chart patterns. ToS doesn't show patterns on futures but it does on FX.
