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'm in favour of restricting acces to Elite Members only.

Hello All,

I just found this site recently, I have some trading experience and have used several platforms. I have learned, for myself that indicators and systems have little value withoutout the discipline to follow what your have found or created.

I'm a discretionary trader who is looking to learn how to program with an eye toward automating what i do. I'm here more for the community and if your feel you need to make the content accessible to only elite members then I will have to live with that.

I don't quite understand a why Captchas dont work, that should solve the bot issue, who cares if it pissess people off who are using technology to mass download! Also requiring that all fields and a valid email be filled out before registering isnt asking alot and i think it should be manditory to only allow full access to those that do.

the place is built from good will and sharing of ideas. it is just human nature that there will be some who would 'steal' from here. the way to curb them is probably by having a memebership like elite or a monitoring program that will put bar them from access if they are identified as the bad crop.

Nothing wrong with a bit of tuning. Do it.

Futures Edge on FIO

What happens to the S&P 500 when a new President takes office?

Yes do it!!! I personally struggled with trading until I saw the Wizard's Holy Grail 2 and started using Renkos. I always credit futures.io (formerly BMT) when I am asked for help on StockTwits. The indicators on this site are the best on the planet! No one should be able to profit from the talent and willingness to share of futures.io (formerly BMT)'s members. I personally havent contributed much but some tick data. But hey as far as I am aware, this is the only place to get that free tick data!

I think it is better to let the owner of the material (the member who uploads) decide either make it public or for elite only. may include this in the upload process, or add a file specification (public/for elite) to the file and give the admins and sub-admins the right to choose,mmm..., acually, it is a big matter and need deep analysing.

The following user says Thank You to moyaya30 for this post:

Great Idea! It will simplify searching as well as encourage others to become elite members.

not so tough call

As a super new (elite) member I'd say go for it. there is a tremendous amount of help and knowledge here for the regular user without any of the downloads. people will take advantage.
quality over quantity.
Lets put it this way... if i ever get good at these trading shenanigans and i post something that i value. I'd want it to be elite only.

become elite

It would be a fair move to protect elite membership and the work of the programmers. Whoever shows real interest will sign up and pay.
