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 – 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.

Might as well introduce myself...

Hello,
My name is Brian, I'm 35 and from Minnesota. I was in an *accident*and life hasn't been the same (Wasn't an accident, but sounds nicer). I'm trying to become a successful Forex trader and have some purpose in life. I'm not looking to make a lot of money, just some money would be rewarding. As, I don't have any other options. (When I say don't have other options, I mean I can't work a typical job and so-and-so). I could trade different securities etc.. I hope that I can be successful on my own. But, if need be someone could be able to help. I apologize if I have been too open. I have just had a real rough stretch health wise. Thank you for reading! Brian

imho, understanding fundamental aspect of our instrument (which economic indicators the central banks are watching) will help greatly in the long run.

mind

Work on your mind game. Honestly, that is the best advice I've been told when I started trading. If yo can't control and monitor condition of your mind it will be hard to make a good living trading. Incidentally, a good mind game will help you with your health!

I don't use it, I guess it's filtered. So what you see is a bit distorted. Something like that... There's a couple threads about it.
I use IQ feed and it has been pretty good.. It is like $50 for the basic service and $25 for Forex data.

So far, what is your impression of IB as a broker?
