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. To succeed, you need to surround yourself with the right support system, educational content, and trading mentors – all of which you can find on futures io, utilizing our social trading environment.

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.

New to BMT

Hi all,
I am not new to trading, having entered into this some 10 yrs ago. I used to swing trade on the SPI200 but that burnt me after a while and i blew up my account. Same old story...been looking for a system that makes consistent profits but seem to get burnt purchasing systems that are totally useless and the only one making money are the sellers of these crap and useless systems.
I am a member now of CFRN and they are performing very well. Michael is a great guy and you see him trade live for 2 hours a day and can if you so wish mimic his trades (Futures - Gold, oil, Russell, Nat Gas, Soybeans and more) So he is very diverse and his method does not change with any market. I however have not made money as sometimes I choose not to take the same trades as Michael so it is my own undoing not that of CFRN. The thing Michael does is because he is actually educating you on a system he takes every trade that is thrown at him. The idea is that each of us make $100 on one contract a day and once account reaches different levels you simply increase contracts to improve the income generated. It is by far the only place I have been where you see it happen in front of you and nothing is hidden. He shows his DOM not all the time as screen real estate is limited but he does drag it back and forth to show you his entry and stops.
I just need to have more confidence to replicate his results.
I did look at DTS but feel this is a very expensive system and i am not sure if it performs as well as suggested so always looking for other systems to see what gels with me.

Nice being here on this forum

Hi there

I hope that the people on this forum are willing to share their winning strategies. Most people on other forums are reluctant to share winning strategies and what they know makes a good trader.

Interesting, I had heard of CFRN. But I thought they were just a radio show with general financial advice. I had no idea they had a daily day-trading room. And it seems updated videos and logs.

Hi Everyone,

I have been investing for over ten years, but never day/swing traded. So I am looking to learn more about that. I trade stocks and options.

Hi Big Mike and all Traders!!!!

I have been trading for a while with a system i developed to beat the system lol. But one day i decided to show off. Guess what? it finally failed causing a huge draw down that took me 10 months to manage back to breakeven. I learned alot during the 10 month period. In fact i am a totally different trader. Trading is all in our head 100 percent of it. Master yourself to Master the world not just trading. The ancient words KNOW THY SELF. and you will find all the answers. I love Trading and i hope i can trade until the AI takes over and we go flat. Peace Love to all my fellow traders even if you are on the other side of my trades i still Love you! By the way anyone use occulous(VR Headset) for trading yet? I finally found a Trading site that i like!!! Thanks Guys very good information from all of you. Keep on Trading.
