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.

I would go for $100 for elite membership. Not to big but not to small amount either. This will atleast screen out fews and i have another idea which i will have to PM it to you for a reason.

But i really enjoyed futures.io (formerly BMT) membership. Very first day when i visited futures.io (formerly BMT), After reading few threads, i signed up for Elite membership just because i wanted to appreciate the effort you and other elite member are putting into it.

Personally, I would favor all downloads requiring an elite membership. I gladly paid the $50, and quite honestly if someone can't afford $50 then they shouldn't be trading in the first place.

I will take it one step further and offer that if the downloads go paid, I will setup a real-time web-based chat for all elite members. I wold do it either way, if Mike is ok with it.

I am partners in a trading website that charges a monthly fee. (not going to mention it here out of respect).

We have been talking about offering a 'free' chat for trading. It would probably benefit our site as well, but I don't think my partners would object to using the platform we have built to offering something back to this site. We do regular webinars, so maybe I can offer them here too.

Thank you to everyone who takes their own time to make this site possible.

Mike- please implement this idea. Elite only to download. I also think you should charge a lot more for membership. Somehow "Elite" and 50 bucks don't seem right in the same sentence to me.

I have no problems with Elite-only downloads. I valued the work on the indicators here and paid into the Elite member thing very early on anyway.

IMO have two different account types. One for elite and one for downloads only. The downloads only group should be much cheaper than the elite. Maybe someone might start out as a download only and pay $10 or whatever and then later on decide to go elite, making a total of $60.

I somewhat agree with Massive. Only the opposite for the cost: Elite contributions the same; but the Downloads section much more expensive. If someone truly wants to download, he must truly pay for it, with the amount split 50-50 between Big Mike and the person who wrote the code.

Nothing is for free that is worth having no easy road to trading success. Everyone must pay their fair share and be respectful and responsible to others that have invested time and money to make trading templates and methods that work.

I think restricting to Elite only is the way to go....I know I would never join any site that required 50 posts to become a full member. I also want to discourage riff raft.

Since I didn't posted downloads for other people I don't feel I have the " right" to have an opinion about it, and the creators of the share-ware should decide.

For my opinion, I joined futures.io (formerly BMT) also first just for 1 or 2 downloads, but as my experience / knowledge expanded I really liked the serious posting ( and lack of junk-posts ) on this forum. To me the enormous threads on other forums are often too time-consuming to read. So I think a small fee is oke as a firewall for junk-posts.

I am quite a new member on this site, and have only been actively following the forum for the last Month, but with experience from other forums I agree to having the download section restricted to Elite members
