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.

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.

Autotrading?



Big Mike View Post

Take note - this contest is about Teaching Trading Methods. This one is not a Journal contest.



To be eligible for the prize, you must:
  • Be a current futures.io (formerly BMT) member as of June 1, 2011.
  • Have your own thread, which you started, in one of the following sections of the forum: Traders Hideout (if you are not an Elite member) or The Elite Circle or Elite Group Trading Methods (for Elite members).
  • Your thread must be about teaching a trading method to others.
  • -- YOU MUST REPLY TO THIS THREAD AND GIVE ME YOUR THREAD URL TO ENROLL --
  • You must make one post per day, every day, Mon-Fri, until the end of June 30. Skipping one day here and there is fine, but don't skip several days in a row.
  • Your posts, and your thread, must contain multiple screenshots and/or YouTube videos. If using screenshots, please mark them up using any number of free editing tools.
  • Your daily post can be a review of acceptable trades for the methodology in todays market, highlighting valid trades on your screen shots or video.
  • You must encourage members to ask you questions about your methodology, and you must answer them.
  • You must provide any necessary indicators for download as required for your posted method.
  • Your post must be made on futures.io (formerly BMT), not a link to some off-site location like a blog. Embedding YouTube videos is fine for use as a summary of what you've written on futures.io (formerly BMT).
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Administrators are excluded from winning, but futures.io (formerly BMT) Moderators can participate if they wish.
The whole idea here is to educate. I want this contest to be about teaching and helping one another. The last contest was about helping yourself (journal), so it seems right that this contest is about helping others. Your thread and your posts should be aimed with that in mind.

Hi Mike,

I am a still much a newbie comparied to others here. How about an AutoTrading for NT7 thread, do you think that would qualify. I spend much of my weekends learning about what does and doesn't work (okay, so far doesn't work and why). Also, I know you were hoping for M-F postings, but that isn't when I have much of my time. Would it be fair to say 5 posts a week (3 or 4 sometimes on the weekend) or do you really need M-F for this promotion?

I think this tread would have a limited interest due to the specific content, but would you consider it as an entry?

Hi Mike

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.

What do you think of the idea of listing the threads (with links) in this contest in the Notice above?

Contest entries will be summarized on this thread on Thursday the 2nd.

Mike

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)

You are welcome to start a thread that discusses autotrading. The thread would need to be about how to auto trade, and not about a specific auto traders results.

As for post frequency, you really need to be posting just about every day as I said in order to qualify. The thread is intended for discussions, if you don't post almost daily then it really curtails the discussion.
