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.

No I did not because I made the claim through the credit card company so it goes to their bank. If I actually sued them it would be different I think.

I am still getting emails from Futex as they are offering courses (not on price ladder) presumably in an attempt to pay off creditors.

From my understanding Futex Live is different company to Futex, and thus are still offering their services.

Not sure why they dont change their name, being associated with Futex regardless the details seems counterproductive. Though as they have failed to fulfill their obligations to you I am not sure why theyre operating at all, or allowed to operate.

The previous owner, who is alleged to have large responsibility in the downfall, is now setting up trampoline parks in Wilmslow....

I am pleased you got some of your money back.

Maybe they need to continue operating under the administrator in order to pay off the debts.

Wow trampoline parks... I don't know what to say. It's probably for the better.

Let me get this straight

A Prop firm that is also a teaching firm had over 5m pounds on deposit from its own traders yet had lost it all save for 800k? And are still attempting to 'teach' people how to trade? LOL

Either they lost it trading in a pooled acct or they absconded with the funds, either way, best left alone. They did seem professional and I considered taking one of their courses last year but decided not to. Ultra short term scalping just isn't for me, I discovered. I do far better on a 30m chart watching levels like prior highs/lows, and pivots etc. simple is best for me
