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

Hot on the east coast compared to San Diego....
Well I see that futures.io (formerly BMT) has been down, but now I can't upload my daily journal.
No worries as I know few read it and at this point until I start getting to the positive side on my trades it is basically rubbish; but one thing is for sure I'm not faking it.

Will try back later. Big Mike sorry that your site was down due to hardware problems. Luckily I didn't try to log in at that time. Will try to upload my .JPG files later so that I have todays journal recorded. In the meantime I changed the title and dated them so that I won't have to worry about writing over them tomorrow as I use the same name ever day.

Big Mike thanks again for such a great site. I really wish I found this and paid attention to it when you first started up, because I must confess I think I did run across it in my search of great places, but was not until I landed on and started digging around that I realized just what a gold mine you have here.

I could have sworn I had posted this yesterday. Plus it looks like I am missing some posts. I'm betting that it is my error as 99.9% of the time it is.
Will work on getting the rest off my computer when I get home.
No printer on vacation. Just digital records so my charts will be a bit messed up when I print them out as I have found that my strategy on UniRenko will place trades differently in reconstruct than in real time... Interesting.
Man I have so much to learn. Lately I am wondering which is my best area to spend my time.
TY all... Enough rambling. Another day is about to begin.

Hi all. Back from vacation. Still in SIM as not "winning" as Charlie Sheen would say yet. Lost on my first and only trade of the day 2.75 points. Interesting thing is that I am learning and will try something new tomorrow and that is closing and reentering trades to lock in profits. With luck and proper timing I just may able to make it work.

@Big Mike OOPS sorry I should have posted in time synch discussion sorry, maybe you can move this there.
Here's a new one for some of you, of course the old salts probably know all this.
When your computer that is synched up daily shows a different time than your clocks in your house the computer may not be always right. Here is my story.

First: We always expect a slight time delay with broadcasts in chat rooms, but I was getting a two minute delay after getting off vacation. Normally this means nothing to me, however I was also getting delays in my paid for metrics from Kinetic.

Before emailing support I decided to try to check the accuracy of my clock and ran across the following website.
NIST Internet Time Service

Checking the site that I use to synch my computer (Kinetick Support last time I called) I found that the site I use ,time-nw.nist.gov ,was listed as all services very busy.

I switched to a site that was listed as "all services available." After doing so my computer clock lost the two minutes that it had gained while I was on vacation in July.

Moral of the story, my computer is not always right, sometimes my good old fashion clocks are.

Hope this helps if anyone else out there is having computer time issues.
Also this makes me think about all those computers out there that may be time driven for trading. Wonder just how many of them may be affected.

Oh almost forgot a picture so you can see what I am talking about. (Yellow or Red switch to another site for synching.)

Looking forward to the day when I don't feel distracted, have focus, and am finally in more winners.
