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 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 dont 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.

My nominations (formerly BMT) Member of the Year
big mike HIMSELF... none other!!! A great deal of effort has gone into this site.... Thanks Big Mike. (formerly BMT) Thread of the Year
don't have ONE favourite (sorry, hard to tabulate this result, right!) (formerly BMT) Indicator of the Year
Volume Profile is new and exciting to me... still need to learn a lot more on it but the standard Bollinger Bands are still useful. (formerly BMT) System of the Year
Wish I had one! I'd be a more successful trader. (formerly BMT) Webinar of the Year
There were SO MANY great webinars, but I one that IMPACTED me the most was the Pyschology webinar by Denise Shull. Found it interesting that I am hard wired to follow the crowd... and fail like 80% of us. Who could admit it ?

Best Futures Broker
I like Mirus with the Ninja Trader platform although I also use Intereactive Brokers daily. (can I split my vote?)

Best Forex Broker
FXCM.... they don't have a dealer desk trading against you with stops!

Best Trading Platform
Interactive Brokers.

Best Trading Book
John F Carter's 2012 update is still my standard.
