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.

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 donít 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.

hi would,

i think asking for feedback of you trading-stuff only makes sense if you post your charts, ideas + trades also here on this forum.

a discusion starts if we have something to look at + if there is something to point at in another post above / below thisone.

if i start to talk about the third chart right corner in you blog-post of the post 3 days ago - no one knows what i am talking about -- if you know what i mean.

so i suggest also to post your stuff here for discussing it.

thanls in advance
max

Good looking DOM you have in Excel, can you give some details on how you did this?

ZTR, thanks I actually do not use that DOM for order entry I use it to study bid/ ask relationships, total bid/ask volume, and a few other things.. I was just including it in those pictures to show my P/L. There is a tutorial on how to make something similar to that for X_trader which is what it is for.. If you are interested in making one your self I could help or send you a version of mine.

Thank you for the offer, @Would.

At this point @syxforex is using X-Trader, so I will make him aware of your blog. He is much more skilled in its use, plus I like it when someone else teaches me something, as I do so much teaching myself.

Eventually, I want to track the number of cars entered into the DOM but not executed. What you have might be adaptable to that end. There is a thread on just this subject as well as the DOMBands indicator developed by @Zondor and myself.

I updated the blog.. I am going to figure out a way to link it in here easily.. I think my main problem today was just lack of patience.. My long term moving average had me in the right direction all morning but I just second guessing.

By the way that DOMbands study is very similar to how I have things set up on that excel DOM

It is linked on every post you make, the 'home' icon on bottom left of your post that says "Visit my blog".

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.
