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.

I am new to this forum

Hi all
I am a new forum member and I am new to options trading as well. currently I paper trade with thinkorswim.

I am approved only for covered calls and cash secured puts in my "real money account" however I have yet to "live trade". I am buying/selling calls and puts with paper trades to learn all that I can. I hope to have my live trading choices expanded to be able to buy to open as we'll, or I will go to another company.

I am not confident enough to sell puts and sell covered calls with real money. I have been buying puts/calls via paper trading for about a month now. I want to learn more before I swim with the option trading sharks. I am grateful for a forum such as this where information can be shared especially for a newer trader like me. I hope I can contribute at some point

I am in the banking industry 25 years but hope to learn and make some good cash to supplement my income and bounce back more from some financial medical expenses and setbacks due to the health of one of my children. Greener pastures ahead, I hope.

Thanks for reading my intro!

As a fellow Clevelander, I wish you all the best! But, your comment (that I've bolded) gives me pause. I can tell you that there are much surer ways of supplementing your income than by trading (a second job, for example). Trading is one of few jobs where it costs most people to work, instead of the other way around.

It is possible to make good money trading, but just remember that most people don't. Trading is really hard, and anyone who tells you it is easy is either lying to you, trying to sell you something, or both.

If you want a great thread on selling options, follow the thread of @ron99. He's another Ohio boy, so you can trust him! I use the method he lays out: https://futures.io/options-cfd-trading/12309-selling-options-futures.html


Good Luck! Go Browns! Go Cavs!

Thanks for the information sent and your reply. I will surely look at it. I am new to all of this yes, but I do have the guidance of a good friend who has made his full time living as a trader for 15 years so I have his input to help out, which is great. I will move cautiously forward with his help.

Thanks again
