Welcome to futures io.

(If you already have an account, login at the top of the page)

futures io is the largest futures trading community on the planet, with over 100,000 members. At futures io, our goal has always been and always will be to create a friendly, positive, forward-thinking community where members can openly share and discuss everything the world of trading has to offer. 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. To succeed, you need to surround yourself with the right support system, educational content, and trading mentors – all of which you can find on futures io, utilizing our social trading environment.

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.

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.

...meanwhile here in the 'States we're stuck with two lousy brokers and their crappy proprietary platforms because we can't be trusted to think for ourselves, and offshore accounts are not allowed.

Edit: @mattz, that is great news! Do you know if Sierrachart will be supported?

I am not sure yet, but I will explore it with Sierrachart. You know there are always "issues" when you try to bring an API to another 3rd party application. Specifically for Sierrachart, they have certain standards that we hope our new partner would be able to satisfy. The guys we are talking to have their own native and free trading platform.

Kind regards,

It looks like the Party is soon over

..., or whether other regulators will disable their citizens opening accounts there.

It looks like the Party is soon over because IC Markets and FP Markets are heading EU:

https://www.financemagnates.com/forex/brokers/ic-markets-obtains-cysec-license-opens-cyprus-office/

and FXTM is heading Mauritius

I think they do this to not lose to many customer if the EU (ESMA) is not allowing to have offshore accounts!
