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.

not sure if you have answered this but are all the BMT videos going to be posted to youtube, including all the old ones? if not, are you going to put them up in a non flash player version but still restricted to elite members?

Discussed in the new framework thread I think, but no not everything on YouTube. Elite content will be HtML5 videos.

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.

Old ones are hosted by us. New ones on YouTube. Going forward everything hosted by us, YouTube will be a mirror of some but not all.

request Link to recent webinar discussions under "Trading Webinars / Videos"

Hi Mike and board developers,

Is it possible to add a link to the discussion thread of recent or all past webinars under:
https://futures.io/webinars/ ?

I find upcoming webinars and past VIDEOS easily,
but the DISCUSSIONS are all over the board (some under vendors, some other-where).

Before the event the Discussion thread for Q&A is there , but not AFTER the live event.

I don't know if this could be done easily and what the workload is.
So take it as a suggestion.

TY

Sounds like a solid idea to me as well.

It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.

Yes, that's one of my favourites too.

While we're busy trashing @bobwest's journal, one of my real fave's is to store bookmark links using the '-new-post.html' ending, that does the same as 'New' but from any browser link button.

e.g.

https://www.futures.io/elite-trading-journals/31225-two-pints-dax-please-new-post.html

Is a bookmark button link for the first new post or the last post in my journal.

Cheers
[sorry Bob, maybe we should have a FIO best tips area, but knowing Mike there's already something like that but we've forgotten about it.]

Odd behavior - when I click on ratfink's link above, I get this screenshot although I am logged in

From my experience it is something to do with a login for the non-elite section and a login for the elite section, but don't quote me, I just know that I can reproduce it 100% of the time if I use the same sequence after clearing cookies, and Mike has said he knows there are issues in that area. I'll edit the example link I used to be for the Spoos thread instead, just to avoid this for anybody else, interesting that you encountered it too.

Travel Well

No known issue that I can recall, it's something to do with the cookie on your side if you are being asked to log in again or if you are receiving a no permission error. Best guess is something is disabled in your browser regarding cookies.

What you can do is clear all *.bigmiketrading.com and *.futures.io cookies manually and then login and try again, but there is no known issue that would cause this problem. Try turning off all third party blockers on your side.
