This thread is being created as a catch-all for people that are viewing my signature, or people that email me, private message me, or otherwise are asking for help but not posting their question on the forum.

I am asking fellow FIO'ers to help monitor this thread, and then respond to questions and direct them to more appropriate existing threads. I don't want a lot of conversation back-and-forth in this thread, as it will get very disorganized should that occur. Instead, I want it to be more in the format of "question" -> "answer", "next question" -> "next answer", and so forth.

Thank you!

Hi, glad to see you posting.

I've created a thread for you here based on your question:


I've also answered your question in that thread based on my own experience. If you have further questions about this, please use the new thread that has been created for you.

Others can say more in the thread above, as we are endeavoring to keep this particular "catch-all" "I need help with" thread to the format of "Question" -> "Answer", then "Next Question" -> "Next Answer".

Mike

I recently started trading gain and came back to futures.io. Ive tried to post but it does not let me, it keeps telling me I cannot have an attachment. I'm not adding an attachment so not sure why it keeps saying that. Just want to be able to reply and post. Thanks.

Hi,

I have used both NT and a still holding a lifetime NT license and are now using Sierra Charts. - I would never dream of swithing back to NT. I consider Sierra Cthars much, much better. - Is one easier than the other.... - Hart so sat NT might seem easier as it is much simplier, but I would consider Sierra Charts as the "Can do Software" mean that no matter what you want to do it can be done with Siearra Charts.

Hope this was a help to you

Are you trying to insert a picture? Can you take a screenshot of the whole page that includes the error you are receiving, so I can look into it?
