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.

Hats off to Matt at Optimus. He recently bent over backwards to help with some issues that were happening with my system. These issues had nothing to do with Optimus but Matt helped me get them resolved. Most brokers would not do what he did for me.

I also recently tried Continuum for server side OCO but had a lot of problems with so went back to Rithmic. There was some stuff I needed to get done with Rithmic directly. Matt has great relationship with those guys and was able to get done what I needed very quickly. He bent over backwards to get me taken care of and I highly appreciate his hands on approach to customer needs.

Anyone looking for a Rithmic broker I can't recommend the team at Optimus highly enough.

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

I lost some time trying to find your commissions and fees on your web site.
I started a chat conversation but the person left in the middle of conversation.
Nothing.Top secret.

I don't like this business approach.

I have read the transcript of the conversation.
You were provided with an email prior to leaving the conversation asking you to drop an email so we can give you all the details necessary. We apologize for the inconvenience but we needed to restart our servers during the chat.

Mobile App

Futures Edge on FIO

Are you a NinjaTrader user?

 
Just a small update for the community: we have finally were able to launch a Rithmic
based solution for Mobile Trading for Android and Apple.
This could serve as a standalone trading platform or in conjunction with any platform that is
Rithmic driven. For example, you could trade on NinjaTrader but close your position on the mobile app as we can tie it up to one account.
Also, we would create instructional videos to assist the users with the different features. We should have more news next week about this.

Matt

THERE IS A SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS IN FUTURES TRADING. FUTURES CONTRACTS HOLD A HIGH DEGREE OF LEVERAGE THEREFORE YOU SHOULD CONSIDER CAREFULLY WHETHER SUCH TRADING IS APPROPRIATE FOR YOU.

As usual, the boys at Optimus are staying on the cutting edge. This time they bring in one of my
favorite tools - the 9G DOM...

These cats continue to impress with the way they keep their corporate ear to the street.

Thanks to Matt!

I was in a Crude Oil trade at 6AM California time, when I received a phone call from Matt to warn me that I was trading contract in a Delivery month. My first reaction was NO way I am doing that! You see, Ive been doing this for quite some time. But one glance at my position, I was so grateful that Matt called.

Thank you for paying attention to details for your customers. I am so glad I have you on my side.

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.
6)

Excellent customer service



mattz View Post
As the guy who build this great forum, I appreciate your kind words.

I'm with Optimus Futures since Jan this year and so far everthing is running smoothly.

However today I had some connectivity issues and I got a bit stessed out. So I wrote an email on my backup PC
(WIN XP) to Matt and asked for help.
It did not take longer then 2 minutes and he replied on my mail. We then got connected on skype and he immediately fixed my problem (closing a pending trade).

To be honest its not what I expected. I mean a response in 2 minutes...

This is 10 ten out of ten for customer service.

Thx Matt
