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.

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.

How to use The Quick Summary Post

hi folks - here something new like mentioned in the last futures.io (formerly BMT)-changelog.

The Quick Summary Post

This is an example of how we like to use the Quick Summary (comes up automaticaly as the second post in every thread) in the future!

all attachements are collected + linked in the Quick Summary Post with the "permalink of the post" - it brings you directly to the post the indicator / stuff is putted in.

so if a new indicator or template is posted in the thread - please try to add also a link in the Quick Summary-section.

this way everyone should be able to find the needed / related indicators + files superfast.
this will be a big help for all users.

Quick Summary is created and edited by users like you...
>>> Add FAQ's, Links and other Relevant Information by clicking the edit button in the lower right hand corner of this message.

here we go - i choosed the Perry-thread as example - have a look at this :

I made this screen shot a while back on a post to also help show how to use it.

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.

Is there a reason some of the RECENT threads don't seem to have the 'quick summary?'

This one here doesn't seem to have it in the second post, and was made pretty recently.

Some new sections of the forum don't have them. I'll correct that, but there is no way to add a quick summary to an existing thread.

Mike, how do you use that "shout-out" feature where if you reference someone's name, it shows up as a hyperlink, and will show up in their 'notifications?' I thought typing the name would do it automatically, but there must be something else?

I tried those 'mention' tags, but that doesn't seem to be it.

-------EDIT---------
Feel free to delete my post, I should have posted it somewhere else. BUt it looks like it was in fact the "Mention" tag.

How to use mention:

Short answer, preface username with @ -- Don't put a space between the @ and username.

Hmm, that's kind of weird...I refreshed the page several times, and now the Edit button is back again...
