Welcome to futures io.

(If you already have an account, login at the top of the page)

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 – 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 don’t 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.

futures.io (formerly BMT) Thread Of The Year : Unofficial NT8 wish list thread
futures.io (formerly BMT) Programmer Of The Year : gomi (less productive yet still most skilled surgeon!)
futures.io (formerly BMT) Indicator Of The Year : bThinkPlanAction (terratec)

Best Futures Broker : Crossland LLC
Best Data Feed : Kinetick
Best Forex Broker : LMAX
Best Stocks Broker : InteractiveBrokers
Best Trading Platform : NinjaTrader 7

I'd wish there'd be more categories, like first 5 categories not necessarily from futures.io (formerly BMT) to crosscheck winners and broaden horizons.

Also,
- futures.io (formerly BMT) webinar of the year ==> Peter Campbell M3
- Best webinar (if seen elsewhere)
- Best trading book ==> Al Brooks' price action trilogy (sorry, I'm anticipating the end of the month )
- Best autotrade signals company ==> Currensee
- Best historical market data vendor ==> TickData
- Best CFD broker ==> GFT
- Best trading event (expo, seminar, etc) ?
- Best traders' settlement dreamplace (taxes, laws, life in general)

Could they be considered ? Gathering opinions on those fields could be even more interesting to me as we could say they might be less "documented" or made bold, although just as useful.

Thanks, I like these two additional categories and have added them to post #1.

If everyone would also start posting their nominations for these two categories, it would be appreciated!

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.

indicators


nakachalet View Post
May I nominate this simplest, not widely known, indie, per attached, namely

Equilateral Triangles and

Rectangular Bricks


by unknown bmt elite member,

as the indicator of the year 2011; because of its simplicity and profitability. The proprietor-trainer wishes to remain unanimous.

Equilateral Triangles in blue color suggest possible going long and

Rectangular Bricks in red color
suggest possible going short; at your own discretion and absolutely your own risks.

Could you please let me know that from where it can be downloaded these 2 indicators

Not sure about many of the categories but here are some of my preferences:
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Programmer Of The Year - Fat Tails
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Indicator Of The Year - Tie between Zondor and Tim's version of the Volume Ladder and the Initial Balance indicator by Fat Tails. Not sure if those were created this year though.
  • Best Futures Broker - Advantage Futures
  • Best Data Feed - CQG
  • Best Stocks Broker - Thinkorswim
  • Best Trading Platform - CQG for Order Entry and NT for charts
