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.

I added futures.io (formerly BMT) Journal of the Year.

So the categories are:
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Member of the Year
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Thread of the Year
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Journal of the Year
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Programmer of the Year
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Indicator of the Year
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) System of the Year
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Webinar of the Year
  • Best Futures Broker
  • Best Forex Broker
  • Best Stocks Broker
  • Best Data Feed
  • Best Trading Platform
  • Best Trading Book

Right now, you need to make your NOMINATIONS for each category. Voting will take place in December, and in order to vote for someone, they first must have been nominated.

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.

My Nominations

Best Indicator Of The Year: ALTO Gom MP

Best Programmer Of The Year: Fat Tails

Best Webinar Of The Year: FuturesTraders71(Latest)

Since I have not examined all the different brokers, data providers, threads, etc, I refrain from arbitrary nominations in those catagories.

Nominations

Actually I think I have enough experience with trading platforms to nominate the following in addition to my earlier post.
Best Futures Trading Platform: Ninja Trader 7

Best Strategy-based Stock/Forex trading: Tradestation. Also, a good back-up for my Ninja Futures trading.

Best Options Trading: ThinkOrSwim.

I'm thinking we should add a category for "futures.io (formerly BMT) Best Journal of the Year", since many of my nominations for thread of the year in the last post are actually journals.

Also, since we already have a MVP (member of the year), should we add a Rookie of the year?

What do you think?

Mike

I say Journal of the Year and Elite Journal, seeing as Elite Journals are only visible to Elite Members.

I mean, thats my suggestion.

Instead of rookie, how about Rizing Star...Or comeback poster of the year...

Journeymans award for most posts...most active?

Best non trading related thread.

Anyway, a couple of ideas.
