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.

-- Big Mike

Reduced the limit at which in-line images are re-sized. Previously, images up to 760px were shown full-size, and larger was reduced to 760px. Now, it is 650px.

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.

Added a new poll on the forum home page, and added a new survey under "Community -> Surveys". I will be updating these often, every couple of weeks or so, so keep checking back.

Further enhanced the Show Attachments feature for each thread.

You can get to this on the top-right of any thread, next to the pagination section there is a number next to a paperclip, it represents the number of attachments in the thread. You can also get to this by clicking Thread Tools -> Show Attachments on the top of a thread. Last, you can get to it from the list of threads in the forum view by clicking the paperclip next to the title of the thread.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


@ZTR has been asking for some of these enhancements. It's taken a while but the programmer got them done ahead of schedule. You can enable/disable the inclusion of image attachments in the search results, to make it easier to find the "meat" in a thread (cs files, zip files, etc). You can short any which way. And clicking on the attachment will take you straight to that post in the thread.

BTW, I just want to show what the default looks like on other forums. Not picking on them. Well, maybe a little!

So you can see how ours is very advanced, and it should really help you find stuff. Don't forget you can also use the Search Global Attachments feature, mentioned above in this thread to help you search for attachments by keyword.

Thank you @Big Mike. This is really advanced and should make finding attachments and the associated posts so much easier to find.

Whoever takes on the task of moving attachments to Downloads will have a much easier time copying the information from the post describing the attachment into the download section. I am willing to help, a little, if needed.

Cosmetic change to hopefully make users search more often. The search button now stands out more, just begging people to use it (I hope)

There is a tiny cosmetic issue with Chrome, I hope to have it fixed soon.

Critical security patch applied for vbSEO. It caused the site to go down for about 5 minutes unexpectedly, sorry. Everything should be back now.

I just want to say that the new look and feel of the Forum GUI is outstanding.

It is so much more intutitive and easy to navigate. Thanks @Big Mike.
