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.

Minimum post requirement to download

Just FYI, the minimum post requirement to download has just been raised from 3 posts to 10 posts, because despite the huge warning people received, they still proceeded to just post junk in order to download. Junk such as "Thanks", or such as "Yes I like it", etc.

This is what the warning looks like when they try to download:
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


Now, with it being raised to ten posts, my hope is these losers/leechers will think ten posts is too hard and that they won't even bother with junk/spam. They'll just go elsewhere. Fine by me.

I really don't want anyone here that isn't interested in helping others. If they are put off by having to participate in the forum and help others in a meaningful way in order to download indicators, then they aren't welcome in my house.

On a side note, I want to thank everyone who does actively participate in the forum. Your contributions are what sets us apart from the rest of the trading forums out there, your willingness to share and help is unsurpassed.

Thank you!

Mike

BTW, I know many of you have not seen all these junk posts on the forum. That is because the moderating team and myself constantly battle to delete them, usually within minutes of them being posted.

One last thought. In the past two weeks or so since we implemented the 3 post requirement to download (which was just raised to 10), we've had to ban almost 20 people who despite the huge warning decided to post crap anyway.

Now, on the flip side, there are a BUNCH of people who saw the warning and then did the right thing and participated in a positive and meaningful way, and to these people I want to say THANK YOU for your efforts, very much.

If you are one of these people, I am willing to work with you if you feel making an additional 7 posts is too much to ask. Just PM me.
