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.

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.

Ive been thinking about this contest and the past contests here . All great ideas imho . Waaaaaay back when futures.io (formerly BMT) was a little baby and even before that Mike has been a consistent giver , a rarity in the self directed online trading world and he deserves a lot of credit so thanks Mike for your vision and insight .

Ill have time to consistently put my 2 cents in and intend to start a thread to share the stuff Ive learned all by myself while putting on live trades without blowing up my account . Ill describe how I had to recognize common sense decisions in a functional manner , stick by my decisions , trust myself no matter the results and lots of other things that are easy to talk about and very difficult to practice .

I know that the things that were shared with me by selfless traders helped me avoid getting ran over by the market and even more importantly protected me from myself . So to share things here to give back and with a goal of preventing somebody or a lot of somebodies from getting eaten alive by the market is a pleasure . Being thanked lots of times is icing on the cake (hint) . I dont need a monitor or prizes and always pay it forward to those who do actually need .

Reckon Ill call this thread " Common sense trading decisions " and Ill start it up saturday to capitalize on the contest , thanks .

very nice. hopefully more members have similar thoughts

have to wait a few days before I can "thank you" for this post (hint)

Tip


To see your ranking and the leaderboard, go here:
Big Mike's Trading Forum - Thanks Contest

This will show the top 10 members and their rank in the contest, along with your rank even if you are outside the top 10.




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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
