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.

This is truly priceless. So darn obvious, it's painful.

Also re the cap locks. Most of the time they are annoying as all get out. But they way you are using them is quite fitting, and it sort of makes me chuckle, at myself not having seen the obvious for so long.

Pete

What is obvious is often unseen.

How long did it take before someone put wheels on suitcases... DUH!!

TRO,

The forum supports up to 10 attachments per post. Please use the forum attachment feature for your images, with which you can condense these back-to-back image posts into a single post.

Also, there is a section on the forum called "Journals and Daily Charts". You can create a thread there to post all your charts when you just want to post charts and not a lot of substance (text) to accompany them. That sub-forum is there for that purpose. I would also love to see a journal from you where you show your actual trades if you feel compelled to show them.

On the posts where you describe in detail what is occurring within the screen shot, those are appropriate in a thread discussing a particular method. For instance, this thread is about trading without indicators, so if you are going to post screen shots in this thread please spend a few extra minutes and describe the trade setups that you are posting about.

In addition, there is a Money Management section on the forum where I would love to hear about your rules for risk management and trade management. There have been discussions on expectancy and several other methods.

Last, your input on this thread has been (mostly) appreciated by many users. I look forward to more posts from you on a variety of subjects.

Thank you.



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)

Tell you what Big Mike, please move ALL OF MY POSTS from this thread into my new NEVER LOSE AGAIN!! - TheRumpledOne thread where I can post HOW I WANT. That way if someone doesn't like me, my big charts, charts with little or no explanations, big fonts, ALL CAPS, how I answer questions, etc... they know NOT to read that thread. I will refrain from posting often in other threads.

Thanking you in advance for your cooperation.

P.S. The reason I do not annotate every chart is because I want people to SEE for themselves.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR ME, PLEASE POST THEM IN MY NEW THREAD HERE:

https://futures.io/6872-post1.html

This way I won't be rubbing anyone the wrong way IN THIS THREAD with my posts.

tro - ty for the newsreminder script - request of you, can you make an indicator that allows to enter prices manually - if not maybe i get into to your code and change it for what im looking for

the reason i ask is because i like to watch the s/r levels from pivotfarm.com

ciao

Hey I use pivotfarm too and I was thinking of making one indicator where you could type in as many S/R lines as you want and it'll plot them. It's easier than adding the constant line indicator several times I think. I'll work on that this week.

The posts from this thread will remain here -- glad to see you started your own thread, I think that makes the most sense. I would still appreciate you using the forum attachment feature instead of tinypic and posting one image per post. Thanks for your cooperation.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend with your family, I'm logging off.

You can attach files using the paperclick looking icon on the editor. If you have any more questions pop into the chatbox and someone will assist.

I hate the forum attachment feature and so do others.

I do not want to have to read, then click to see what the poster is talking about and click back and forth over and over...

If this is going to be a problem, then I guess I won't be posting.

YOUR FORUM, YOUR RULES. I RESPECT THAT. I KNOW YOUR FINGER IS ON THE BAN BUTTON.

But remember, you have readers who's wishes you may want to consider from time to time.
