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

Interesting on ...

TGA's set up that across all those screens there is not a single chart visible. Did anyone notice that? DB

zzzz, wicked basement in that video. Too much crap going on though. Let's be honest here: what good are all those numbers rolling across and flashing on the matrix board above the computers except to feed the guy's ego? He referred to it as a casino, and it sure looks and sounds that way (especially with T4's sound you keep hearing, makes it sound like a slot machine keeps going off). Maybe it just is cut to make it look this way, as it is for TV and all. But do two or three guys, each with one set of eyes, and the limited human ability to truly multitask, much less focus on so many markets, need so much crap? Don't get me wrong, I think it's way cool, but does it really add to the guy's bottom line? One of the most basic rules in business (not video games, as he says it feels like sometimes) is minimizing costs. He jokingly said he was still paying for the basement setup he has, but maybe it wasn't a joke--I would wager that something like that would cost quite a lot (maybe $20K at least?). And monthly maintenance is no doubt quite high too.

Dunno Josh - but I laughed when I saw them walk into the basement - the way those 2 guys were lit up against the wall from the screen glare behind the camera.

It could well be a boy toy and if that's the case, I think we are all guilty to some extent.
