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.

-- Big Mike

Not sure if Matt ever sleeps

As he is always there to assist and answer your questions and treats you with the greatest respect and there is so much everyone can learn from Matt


Well done Matt


Sharma's

@sharmas you are too kind and funny "Legend" LOL . I would feel a bit selfish taking all the "fame". My staff is what makes the magic. I always strive to surround myself with good people who respect others and don't look at prospects and customers as a "Metric"! my business development guy made the site what it is today. He never talks to anyone, but does an amazing job daily.

Please continue being our fan, and your kind words are our biggest support for future business. Thank you (x100) for your generosity and kindness over the years at F.IO

I just opened an account with Optimus because of the support I got from them when I was not a customer.

Over a year ago I posted on FIO about some strange platform issues I was having with my trading software. Most of my trading at the time was automated. Matt reached out to me directly to avoid tarnishing the vendor publicly and highlighted some limitations that would likely harm my trading. After doing some research I found it to be true. I later switched platforms after discussing some various options with Matt and I've been making money ever since.

At no point did he try to sell me a product or service. He just helped me out .. i remembered that a year later and when my current account was too large for comfort and I wanted to split it up a bit I reached out to Optimus.

Ironically I was having problems getting my account setup. I reached out to the Optimus online chat support but forgot about the window being open because i was day trading on my primary account. A few minutes later my phone rings and its fucking Matt! he noticed i was having issues and wanted to make sure i got setup.

Although I have not started trading with them yet I'm confident i am in good hands.

I truly appreciate that you took my advice in good spirit, and above all that it was able to help you!

Optimus Futures never guarantees anyone that our advice would lead to gains, but it is truly and sincerely our goal to create a fair and objective trading environment. Also, we provide practical advice based on true market challenges and the risks associated with futures trading.

Again, Thank you for your kind words.
Thank you,

MT4 Futures

Hi Mattz,

Can i use MT4 to trader futures ?. I already use Ninjatrader since 2004 but lately i have been in to using Machine EVO to generates strategies for forex and it actually works pretty good i must say. However Ninjtrader is badly supported and so are the other futures platforms. I would like to diversify into some futures aswell using MT4 for simplicity.

Hello @Mabi, I am sorry for the lack of support you are getting from your platform provider.
I have seen integrations that have occurred with MT4 and futures, but sadly I can not recommend them whole hardheartedly now that you have full integrations with MT5 that was build for exchange traded products.

You can find MT5 on our platform pages, but I will also send you a direct link as well for your convenience. Our MT5 is connected via CQG data. Since you are a MetaTrader 4 user, I also thought you will find this helpful: Comparison of MetaTrader 5 and MetaTrader 4

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

Thank you,
Matt Z

For my inaugural post (I've been lurking here for awhile), I write to say that on the strength of Optimus's reputation in this community, I've decided to go with them as my introducing broker.

I am still at the very beginning of the process, but Matt has been very helpful thus far. And while it will be some time before I am funded and trading--and no doubt there will be some surprises along the way; there's always something--I'm looking forward to working with an IB who cares about and respects traders.

Cheers all.

Thank you for your kind words. We try to avoid to the best our efforts any element of surprise that may adversely affect you. Once your account is established, we can send you all the files to learn the platforms and go over contingency plans in the case of software malfunctions. Once you begin trading, naturally, you may have questions about the software. You can always send support an email, and we will try to get to it in a timely fashion.

Thank you for your business and trust.
