Welcome to futures io.

futures io is the largest futures trading community on the planet, with over 90,000 members. At futures io, our goal has always been and always will be to create a friendly, positive, forward-thinking community where members can openly share and discuss everything the world of trading has to offer. 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 Ė 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 donít 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.

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.

Hi All,

Hi Don,

Sounds great, I would like to be able to work with you someday once Ive started trading. My dream is to build my own stock trading firm using software and analytics. I would also like to learn to program properly. The only programming experience I have is 3 months of C++ at Northwestern University (where I just dropped out from). Keep in touch ...

Thanks alot.

Want to be a Master

Been trading 3 years. About half that full-time. Mostly working on emotions, self-control and discipline these days. Those are my weakest points and are what set me back way too often.

Been trading hardcore for around 6 years. Started in FX, moved to futures, and haven't looked back. Still working on getting consistent.

Hi everyone,

I trade futures (at the moment) using my own platform, using api with IB (via gateway).

Joined this forum to help and get help. Unfortunately, I can't seem to be getting anywhere thanks to this omnipresent message "you're not allowed to ......"

Cheers

Hello and welcome to futures.io (formerly BMT) !

Well, this most likely happens because you don't have sufficient posts to get access to other forum sections.

And if you decide to become an Elite Member, you'll have access to all other sections which are reserved for Elite Members only.
