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 – 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.

As a way to pay it forward, I decided to make a list of what I found most useful to read and watch as a beginner. I was hesitating to do it, because as a newbie I obviously do not yet have ability to skillfully judge the material. So if you are a beginner yourself, feel free to use this list, but have in mind that this is just my uneducated opinion.

1. Some introductory reading here at (formerly BMT): (+ rest of the thread) (+ rest of the thread)

2. Webinars on order flow:
Order Flow Scalping w/John Grady No BS Day Trading -
Order Book/Order Flow Scalping Strategies w/Ferran Font Ramentol -

3. Webinars on psychology by FT71:
Early Webinar FuturesTrader71 | Trader Analysis 2011-09-01
The Holy Grail - Expectancy & Habits
Statistical Analysis for a Broader Edge

4. More FT71:
Volume Profile, Trading Hard Right Edge
On Volume Profile
Getting Started Scalping

5. A few more relaxed things to watch (how NOT to do it ):
Millions by the Minute -
Million Dollar Traders -

6. Some nuggets of knowledge:
E-Mini Player: EMini S&P 500 Futures Trading Education and Analysis: Learning to Become a Successful Trader
My advice for someone starting out » Trade With The Flow

7. More order flow:
Lesson 1: What is Order Flow Trading?
Free Tape Reading and Order Flow Training Materials
No BS Day Trading

This is not all that I looked at and I still have a few things in the queue, but I guess this is already more than enough, especially considering that someone new needs to google unfamiliar phrases and terms
