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 Ė 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 donít 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.

Thanks for reporting. I did make a mistake in the code (one of those 2am fixes), and have corrected it now. Please test and report back.

Mike

Yep, I can confirm
  1. Show results as Threads / Posts has been fixed and now works as intended
  2. Default search mode is now for posts as opposed to for threads
  3. I can see that clicking on the thread title now takes you back to the post (same as clicking on the post)

Thanks for fixing it Mike!

@Big Mike

Feedback on a couple more items about Advanced Search

Item 1
Been trying to look for this specific post of mine. I knew the post contained the text "Does this help?", so that's what I keyed in the Search by Keyword, as shown:

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


However the site returns a "Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms.", despite the exact string being there.

I tried this both with and without question mark being conscious it may be parsed as wildcard.
I also tried both with initial upper case and lower case, but no luck.

In many instances the search with quotes returns the expected results - but not always. This is one example.


EDIT: When the search I described fails, the original search string is changed as follows
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).




Item 2
When searching for the above the forum now offers the default of "search by post" as opposed to "search by thread". However when it returns a result of "Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms." the default is automatically switched to "search by thread"

I've found the same with many simple word searches, I just assumed that search wasn't a priority issue but will also mention it as you have reported it.

If you type it without quotes you'll see this message:

There are limits on the current search system, this is one.

As for it flipping the threads/posts option after an error, yes I duplicated that but unlikely to fix it. Sorry. It is only an issue if your search has zero matches, and the search screen is refreshed.

Give me some examples and I'll look to double check.

Seems good at the moment Mike. I have definitely seen a problem on multiple occasions, but that is over the last few years so maybe transient indexing or whatever I don't know. I can't find an obvious reproduction at the moment, will let you know if I do though, thanks.

There is a problem with our Push Notifications today (caused by a third party, not us).

It means that whenever the problem is resolved, you will be receiving some delayed Push events. We have a working ticket with the vendor.

Sorry about that.

Nice design Mike.


Also, I wasn't aware there was a FIO presence for the 967 users of Google+

We don't use Google+ but just have it as a placeholder.
