Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • 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, and we will never resell your private information.

Even if you have waited weeks (a month or more) and your account is opened and the money
is showing up on your screen - you could face more hassles: like some ticks were not made on a form
causing a fault when you want to trade or you do not have the access to the desired instrument...
Or there are some more forms to sign before you can trade your instrument because you are living
in another country - etc... you name it.
These are some hurdles every trader has to fight with at the beginning.
Don't be upset - things will settle at the moment you fired your first trade then!
Good trades


That's true thanks!
