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 work extremely hard to keep things positive in our community.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendors advertising in posts.

Tradervue's Greg Reinacker (CEO) - Ask Me Anything (AMA)

Greg Reinacker, the Founder and CEO of Tradervue, will be monitoring this thread so that he may answer any questions that you post here relating to Tradervue's products and services.

Please keep in mind that some customer service/technical support issues are best handled through proper channels at Tradervue.

Greg Reinacker started Tradervue in 2011 to offer active traders a tool to help them keep a journal and improve their trading performance. Tradervue also has a social aspect which optionally allows traders to share their actual trades with others. Tradervue has detailed analytics to highlight strengths and weaknesses within your trading methodology and tools designed to improve on them. You can also find a highly regarded educational webinar that Greg presented on futures.io (formerly BMT) that covers the importance of maintaining a Trade Journal.

In addition to this thread, I will also be asking Greg Reinacker to stop by on occasion for a casual webinar where he can answer questions via audio while also sharing his screen to visually demonstrate any points as needed. The date/time of those sessions will be announced here in this thread. These sessions will be limited to questions only, there is no prepared presentation. After the session ends, the recording will be posted in this thread.

You can find more on their website:
Tradervue Trading Journal - Journal, Analyze, and Share your trades

Feel free to ask any questions below and we'll do our best to get them answered.

The futures.io (formerly BMT) "AMA" (Ask Me Anything) series is by invitation only. It is part of a new program we are launching shortly called "Certified Trustworthy", something that has been months in the making. I will provide all the details of this new program as soon as it is ready for launch.

Hi Greg,

Let me ask the first question

I know you originally started Tradervue primarily for equity traders, and after you did your webinar on futures.io (formerly BMT) last year you added a lot of support for futures and forex, new bar types, and etc.

Since the majority of traders on futures.io (formerly BMT) are trading futures, can you tell us if you consider Tradervue to be "100%" compatible now with futures?

I believe it is indeed "100% compatible" with futures and forex - I'm not aware of anything that shouldn't work well.

The only thing that's not applicable is the liquidity reports - they are for equities only. One could make an argument that an analog exists for this in futures, but we don't have a way to calculate it just based on execution data.

@Tradervue,

Greg I know you have a 'share trade' option, but do you have any reports that would show traders ranked on a ladder? For instance, ranked on a calendar month system?

Not at the moment. From the beginning, the idea of sharing trades was intended to be about sharing ideas and information about a trade, without sharing sensitive (to some) financial information. By default when you share a trade, we'll share your buy and sell points, along with your net position (e.g. long or short), but leave out actual size and P&L info. So we show enough that others can understand what happened in a trade, and leave out the fact that you perhaps traded 100 contracts and made $25,000.

Here's an example (Tradervue | NEM Trade Detail) - we can see that he got short, and scaled out in three parts. We don't really care how much size he traded.

The idea was to create a community where people are talking about trades and the educational points therein, without bragging about their P&L and what a genius they are. There are other trading communities that focus on P&L, and it's a very different vibe there.

After lots of feedback about it, we eventually added the option to share P&L if you want to.

All that said, it's an interesting idea to "rank" traders, and a related idea is to have "verified" results where we know, in some way, that they haven't been tampered with. If anyone feels very strongly about any of this, I'd love to hear your thoughts...

I don't care how much size someone trades, that is personal. But there is demand for a ranking system to demonstrate if someone is a good trader overall or not, ranked against their peers. Personally, I don't subscribe to the idea that someone's trading idea is only valid if they can prove they made money with it -- but most others do, especially newer traders. So something to consider perhaps for your service.

Maybe others can comment on the interest in a ranking system (without disclosing total P&L -- like perhaps listing it as "per contract")

Thx,
Mike

Payment

Why is paypal not available as a payment option? I prefer this method as I pay out of my Bank Account directly.

We actually can accept Paypal...it's just not advertised on the web site as it's not fully integrated into our subscription system. It requires some manual work each time someone wants to subscribe, cancel, or change between subscription plans.

If you'd like to upgrade using Paypal, shoot us a note (Tradervue | Contact Us) and we'll get it squared away!

Greg,

I just thought I'd mention some other users journals on futures.io (formerly BMT) that contain good statistical information. I am not very good at Excel, so if something like Tradervue were to spit these out it would be a plus for me

@indextrader7:

@bijeremiad:

There are countless others, but my brain is fried today and I have no energy to search for them.
