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.

It's me

Thanks for the forum. I have committed myself to getting the skills, mindset, (and account equity) to trade full time.

I have started out trading the EUR/USD for a few hours before work experimenting with fibs, bbands, MACD, pivot points, etc. I am in the definitely in the process of finding my style and look forward to the day when I have a better grasp on what I am looking for each day.

I look forward to learning and contributing.

Hello there everyone! I'm very new to futures trading and a new member to (formerly BMT). As a matter of fact, I haven't actually traded a contract yet. I'm in no rush and want to absorb as much as possible here. I'm in the process of setting up a brokerage account and shopping for a trading platform. I've already learned a lot just reading through some of the posts here so decided to spring for the elite membership. I think Mike has put together something really great here.

Hi all,

Oblivion from Canada Land here.

I've been trading forex for about a year and am currently in the process of crossing over to the futures marketplace (bonds and grains in particular).

This forum is a life changer - that is for certain… a complete treasure trove of information without which I would face a miniscule chance of success.

Mike, as the founder I would like to extend my personal gratitude to you for founding this wonderful community.
As for the rest of you, thank you so much for contributing all the invaluable information that is available. I hope to learn a lot and contribute even more during my time here.

Hi everyone,

I'm Jan from the Netherlands. I would not be here if I was successful. Hope I can learn and change my bad habits. Problem there is an overload of info out there and everyone wants to sell you something.

Hello Big Mike and All

After over 2 years of trying just about everything out there i found this website - hoping to find a workable strategy/methodology in the eminis. I've tried just about every possible indicator, numerous rooms, etc,,, With NO success, i'm currently looking at Al Brooks price action which uses NO indicators.

Cheers, Dean
