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 don’t 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.

Newbie Trader

My first post….
I have been an amateur active "investor" since I was in college. I have studied business and finance and read most of the Warren Buffet, Value (fundamental) books that have been written in the last 20 years. Unfortunately, I also listened to the advise… “You can’t time the market”, “Even the brilliant Money Managers can’t beat the Market”.. So Buy and Hold index funds….blah blah blah…..
After sitting on my hands during two giant bear markets (dot com burst to 2008 real estate bust) and watching my portfolio bit the dust, I am done with that advice and want to learn to trade my way to more profitable returns.
We all knew we were in a bear market in 2000 and 2008, so why did we “hang tight and ride it out” when you could have turned sold short all the way down? You folks already know all of this, but I just realized it and now I am really excited about active trading.
My current status:
• Trading for about 6 months
• Studying like crazy to learn more technical investment concepts
• Running NinjaTrader and programming my own system
• Using 3rd Party Signals for trading until my systems are ready
• Leveraging my understanding of fundamental investing to provide higher probability for my technical trades
• Reading Charts for hours each day
• Using non-discretionary signals to enter and exit my trades
• Actively trading 5-15 positions at a time
I am an engineer with 20 years of experience in software which I hope will help me to be successful developing and implementing successful trading systems.
In short, I am really excited about trading and have tons of questions for you guys and gals!

Hello from Shanghai

Thanks for setting up this site Mike. I'm an Italian American living and working in Shanghai for many years...enjoy trading, would love to get so good at it that I start making consistent profits and hope to learn and contribute more here. I have clients and readers who follow my commentary with the China-centric point of view I offer from my perch here in Shanghai....

Hello from Amarillo

Can't really remember how I found this site but I am sure it had something to do with indicator this-or-that and Google. I have been very impressed with the threads I have gone through and this looks like a very active forum with great contributions. Most other forums I have looked at had new posts maybe once a week and those were rairly useful - not the case here. Hats off to Mike for putting together a great collaborative site!! I look forward to continuing my education here and offering contributions myself.

Greg
