Hi The Negotiator

I just posted here:

http://www.traderslaboratory.com/forums/...518#post113518

regarding a few glitches I am encountering technically.

On the topic of "Content" I am wondering if that is what you meant here. If so, I enjoy mucking around with systems, indicators, ideas and systems.
I have a few proprietary systems I have used in the past, and still retain some of the best features of some of them.

Also I have found a great site for MT4 indicators, and would love for other members to have access to some of these lovely goodies
they are free - you just need to register - a fair exchange - your email address for thousands of MT4 indicators - and I do mean 'thousands".

Can I post links to these things?

How do we treat "Commercial" things/ideas without being seen to be promoting the interests of a vendor?

For a long time I have had a proprietary MACD that has a feature that gives me the signal of turning price at least 5 bars earlier,
sometimes many more - than standard MACD. I can put members on to this via the MT4 site, and because it is listed there for free, it is NOT
a breach of copyright. The site is an official MT4 one I believe.

What I am saying is that I would like a section that can discuss Commercial systems that traders already own.
This might need to be a private room, but I don't want that, unless unavoidable - I would like very member to be able to benefit from this stuff.

And while on the topic, can you tell me what a "Premium Member" is?

I found it down the bottom of the "Forums" list. When I click on it, a message comes up:

Quote:
Ingot54, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative
features or some other privileged system?
2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
So what is behind this door?
How do I open it?
Will I like what I see when I get inside that 'room'?

Cheers

For the premium memberships - only 150 posts so I'm guessing you'll see soon enough!!

If there are resources you think others can use, fine. Just nothing really commercial and stuff on other forums for obvious reasons.

We have a forum section for platforms and indicators where you can discuss and post:-

http://www.traderslaboratory.com/forums/f114/

and

http://www.traderslaboratory.com/forums/f46/

If you wanted a specific MT4 forum for the tools of the trade section we could do that. Also, I am thinking the indicator section needs separating into platform specific sections for say mt4, tradestation etc etc.

In the past there was a one off payment to become a premium member which I guess is why I can access this part of the forum with <150 posts.

I don't know about the donation part, but this forum is accessible by all members and not just those of the premium kind!

Re: Suggestions

I like the idea of the rating system for threads. But when I see a 5 star thread, I have no way of knowing how many people voted. If all the 5 star threads only had one person who rated them 5 stars, that would be meaningless to me. So I would like to see how many people voted in the rating.

Re: Suggestions

I would like to see a rating system similar to the current rating system, but that rated each post for a nomination good enough to be part of a trading book. Then, over time, take all the posts that are the best of the best, put them in a book, and offer it for sale. The proceeds could help support the site. Make it a read only pdf file, or maybe even something you could down load to a electronic book. Then just sell it for a small fee, or a "donation".

Re: Suggestions

Tradewinds, that is an excellent idea. I was thinking of a user awards type event sometime just to recognise the contributions of our members, but haven't really tested the water too much on that yet. I do think that a compilation type book or something is a good idea although not sure how easily it could be implemented.
