Welcome to futures io.

(If you already have an account, login at the top of the page)

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.

BMT is uncharacteristic of the trading community!

I registered originally on futures.io (formerly BMT) a looong time ago, but didn't really spend any time on futures.io (formerly BMT) until recently. I wished I would have made futures.io (formerly BMT) my main stay of education 2.5 years ago.

But I have been around the block on many other forums, and futures.io (formerly BMT) seems almost uncharacteristic of the rest of the trading community. By that I mean there seems to be a certain sense of "Sharing" that just doesn't exist anywhere else.

On most of the other forums, every once and a while you will see someone who seems interested in sharing things with others. But usually, there is always some caveat somewhere that you don't realize until you have already invested a lot of time in something. Wether it comes down to someone wanting to sell you something, or finding out that the person explaining something has never traded the method they portend to explain, but wish to keep whatever allegedly makes them profitable a big secret.

So, 'Respek' to those that help out.

Glad you like it here... just don't make the mistake of saying you are for or against "Big Gov'ment Entitlements" ... and you'll be fine...

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

Hail to the chief!

Great point Forrestang!

All the "Respek" goes directly to BigMike. He's really gifted with the type of leadership that makes this place comfortable compared to other forums.

It takes a huge effort on his part.

Thanks BigMike!

I hate to be a party spoiler, but all the reasonable and necessary caveats apply to this forum as much as they apply to many others. Always do your homework. No one here is really your friend, they are all strangers you probably never met in real life.

Rely on your intelligence more than on your emotions and you will do fine, on this or any other forum.

Just my 2 cents.

I've been at this a while, and have memberships on quite a few different trading forums, each one with several hundred posts probably.

Just so you know my opinions ARE NOT based on futures.io (formerly BMT) being my first stop with a trading forum along my path.

I agree with all you have said but would like to add that futures.io (formerly BMT) is pretty much devoid of what I like to call "guttersnipes" who seem to go out of thier way to attack or belittle or demean other members and/or thier posts. Critical review of topics or other members are not malicious or otherwise unnecessarily offensive It's a positive atmosphere here (due in large part to Mikes "hands on" involvement and vigilance) and is most certainly the best site I've seen am glad to be a part of

"Nerdy Nerdo" has been banned for signing up with fake info and via an anonymous proxy, both of which are not tolerated on futures.io (formerly BMT). He was likely here to cause trouble, and is now gone.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
