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.

7 chart types compared to 1 min chart

6E Euro FX contract
charts via NinjaTrader, feed CQG
some charts have MA 1 C , all charts have #gmacd - Guppy MACD
see basic charts settings on left side of Menu and chart
comparison charts' settings arbitrarily sized to the period the 1 min covers

note: MetaTrader has a couple or more chart types via an indicator ? script ? ea ?

Charts: on left is 1 min, then
line break
1sec v 1 tick - one tick is one trade having variable quantities of contracts traded
1sec v 1 volume/contract - volume is quantity of contracts traded - one
1 volume/contract v 1 tick

some observations
: constant versus variable price, time, waves movement - ie time v tick, volume
: speed of process, that is speed of tick, volume quantities being reached
: leverage used to trade with
: 'time period' being traded - ie one could use a 10,000 tick or volume quantity
: different instruments may require different settings
: different instruments may require different settings for particular indicator/s being
used and/or DOM data etc
: too much information versus amount of detail desired, or, which chart type and
settings provide the most useful - profitable information
