Welcome to futures io.

futures io is the largest futures trading community on the planet, with over 90,000 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 Ė 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 donít 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.

I debated about doing this. Seems every time I try to tell someone something about how to trade, I end up looking like a fool. But I decided to have a go at it not because of the iPad, but because it will be useful to me in developing consistency in looking at a single thing for a month.

So my thread is located at https://futures.io/elite-group-trading-methods/11194-aztraders-m-m-trades.html#post124017 and I will start posting in it every day.

Cheers.

I am looking forward to what you have to say,I have followed some of your journal,and I wish my progress was even near what you have accomplished..jrs

Just wanted to say I am very impressed so far with the thread content from the contestants. I also really like how many of you have decided to use Videos in your posts, I believe that videos can really help with the education process and provide more of an interactive feeling.

Thx guys!

Do you have a tread on creating videos for this site? Not sure how to do it, but your VIDEO Strategy was very good and would like to see if this makes sense for my thread.

No I don't have a how-to for this yet, but I plan to make one soon. Short version: download Camstudio recorder (free), then upload the output file to youtube and embed on futures.io (formerly BMT). Click on the word youtube to the left to get instructions on embedding.

It would be nice to have a BB code to play self hosted (my server) mp4 files. Whenever I try to use one of the hosting companies (youtube, vimeo, etc) I loose so much in conversion and resizing as to make my videos useless. The solution I use now, a text link, is not the most elegant.

You shouldn't lose anything, YouTube and Vimeo offer HD services and you can see millions of examples of HD content on those sites. You are probably just not encoding it properly. I'll make a video on how to do this one day, but for now I'm sure you can find something on Google
