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.

BigMike thank you for your valuable forum. I'm not participating in discussions due to some difficulties to express my opinion & thoughts in English, but I appreciate all posts, ideas and experiences people are sharing here.

I agree that all downloads should be available only for Elite members.

Elite Members

I am one of those people that appreciate the costs (time + money) involved in starting and maintaining a site such as futures.io (formerly BMT). That is why I became an elite member very early on.

However, I think the decision belongs to Big Mike.

I am OK with it either way.

Best Regards

I say make the downloads elite for all indicators that are continuously being updated and have obviusly had alot of thought and work put into them. The contributors here are avery generous bunch, You just have to look around on the internet to find indicators that have been ripped off from here and being sold as originals.
On the other hand whats to stop someone becoming an elite member so that they can steal afew indicators and make afew changes to sell.

Good idea Mike, the fight with the boats and people who sell or spread out over the internet with futures.io (formerly BMT) indicators can only be limited access to downloads. Leave a review for indicators, including possible for the elite section and allow to download users only to an elite status.
For those wishing to sell indicators downloaded from futures.io (formerly BMT) to put a label on the files to know the source of the leak.
sorry for my English, I use a translator.

Futures Edge on FIO
One more thought,

1) Leave the elite/non-elite structure as it is now...and make all downloads elite.

2) I can see a "Level" bar meter under user's avtar area, showing Level,Points and activity.

3) Adopt a more expanded use of this Level Indicator for elites so that only download would be possible
if a elite maintain certain minimum Level,points, forum activity.

4) these can be taken as some of points that would reward/increase elite's Level Indicator...

a) How much time in hours elite logged-in in forum in 24 hour( this will increase/decrease Level indicator )
b) How many (significant) threads opened by elite in one month time.
c) How many (significant) post by elite in one month.
d) How many upload by elite in one month.
e) How many unique downloads by elite in one month. ( this will decrease Level indicator by choosen amount)
f) .......more can be thought.

Just a suggestion if can be implemented...might solve atleast most problems.

No problemo here. $50 for elite membership is peanuts...

Hello Big Mike,

I am also for the proposed changes. Around the world a lot forums full of repetitive information for free. I think that person is otherwise loaded with information obtained for the money than with the information for free. Thanks to everyone for sharing their thoughts and ideas. For a lifetime membership of $ 50 is certainly not much.

Successful Trading all.

Hi Mike,

it seems fair to me to make the downloades for Elite members only.

This is a great place to lurn and get new ideas. I do not post much, but I do not think that this is a measure of interest. Some members (such as me) are not so good in English and that is why we do not have so much posts (for this few words I nieded 20 minutes)..lol

thanks for everything Big Mike

Elite Only d/l

I agree Mike. I don't post much as many threads are Ninja orientated and I use Investor/RT. I do watch various webinars though.

For any serious trader the subscription costs are tiny. If you sense that your goodwill is being abused you should proceed with the change immediately.

I'd agree it would be better to have the quality indicators require elite status, or at least a high enough level.
I used to be a member of TSL (traders-secret-library.com) library and forum for an annual fee of $500. It was filled with vendor regurgitated free articles/ads from other partner vendors. And the indicators and systems, and help and discussion on the forums on futures.io (formerly BMT) for free, were far more valuable then what I found on TSL in the course of a year.
