futures io is the largest futures trading community on the planet, with over 90,000 members. At futures io, our goal has always been and always will be to create a friendly, positive, forward-thinking community where members can openly share and discuss everything the world of trading has to offer. The community is one of the friendliest you will find on any subject, with members going out of their way to help others. Some of the primary differences between futures io and other trading sites revolve around the standards of our community. Those standards include a code of conduct for our members, as well as extremely high standards that govern which partners we do business with, and which products or services we recommend to our members.

At futures io, our focus is on quality education. No hype, gimmicks, or secret sauce. The truth is: trading is hard. To succeed, you need to surround yourself with the right support system, educational content, and trading mentors – all of which you can find on futures io, utilizing our social trading environment.

With futures io, you can find honest trading reviews on brokers, trading rooms, indicator packages, trading strategies, and much more. Our trading review process is highly moderated to ensure that only genuine users are allowed, so you don’t need to worry about fake reviews.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading sites:
  • We are here to help. Just let us know what you need.
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive in our community.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendors advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, we can help you find it.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

The way I see it the indicators don't add to the confusion, they clarify the chart for me. For me, the indicators are just another graphical representation of price action. I've heard of those who can actually trade a bare-naked chart - just based on price action. I'm not one of them. I need more reassurance/confirmation. It's just a different approach. I've tried this on the TF 233 tick & it seems to work fairly reliably. I can't say that it will work for all time frames or all instruments. My data feed is from Interactive Brokers, perhaps that (based on your earlier comment to another member) is why it seems to work for me. Should I change to Zen-fire, I may find that this fails horribly, but for now I'm going to stick with it & see where it takes me. I was just a little elated & wanted to share it with others. No one is under any obligation to try my setup or risk their hard-earned $$. In fact, I would encourage others to try this setup, if they see fit, in SIM mode ONLY to see if they think it's right for them. Aside from this forum, I'm on my own as I have no one to talk 'day-trading' with or share any ideas or get any feedback. I appreciate all the comments / interest, as I feel it helps to give me purpose. We all have a need to be needed & I'm definitely no exception. Thanks for your comments. I am not offended.

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

appreciate your reply Wizard, it's stuff like this that makes trading so great... the fact that different methods and opinions can all be profitable

i completely agree with you... trading is a lonely world, there more ppl there are to bounce ideas off of, the better...

I just posted the TEMPLATE file for the indicators. Apply it to your screen & see how it works for you. I'm not sure what you mean when you say "How do you interpret indicators in panel 1" ?

TheWizard,

Charts looks nice. Thanks for doing this and sharing.

I did make a couple of quick changes for my own perferences. Changed right side margin from 10 to 20. eliminate indicators overlap issue panel 1.

panels 2 and 3, changed from hash 80 to bar 11. No more sizing panels to hash bars height.

Overall, a really really good job.

Thanks again,

RJay

Look at the post from 11:29 am today for the latest .zip file of indicators & the chart template.

I've attached a screen shot of what it should look like (from today's trading session).

If after importing the indicators & chart template & applying the template - yours still doesn't look like this (TF on a 233 tick chart), email me a screen shot of your chart & I'll take a look to see if I can determine the cause of the difference in appearance).

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

Keep in mind the C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\My Documents is only for XP. Vista/Seven would be C:\Users\<username>\Documents.

Mike

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.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Thanks Mike!

I have a PC at home running Vista, but couldn't remember where the template lived. Thanks for contributing this in case others out there are running Vista. This will help let them know where to put the template.
