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.

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.

Hi guys,

A minor layout change to move the Reviews to the top of the forum section, breaking them out from Traders Hideout:

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


Please report any problems.

Mike

The bitcoin subforum has been renamed/recategorized to a more generic Cryptocurrency Trading forum:

Some odd behavior for me in the Downloads section... I have uploaded some Replay data with instructions on how to install them. The ones I did 1-2 months ago are showing up with the screenshot I uploaded (as expected), however the one I uploaded yesterday is missing the screenshot.

I could see the screenshot yesterday, but today it has disappeared.

This is how it should show (highlight in red)

In order to place the screenshot where I want, I created a test post somewhere else, uploaded the screenshot and then referenced the URL in the upload with IMG tags

The "culprit" link is https://futures.io/attachment.php?attachmentid=236045, for which now I get "Invalid Attachment specified"


What gives?

@xplorer,

I believe this is the "attachment gone missing" bug that has been around for a while. It is extremely rare. I am sorry, but new efforts are going towards the new framework so we've stopped trying to solve that particular bug. You saw it originally due to a cached image as the uploader, but it was never on the server permanently.

You'll have to re-edit and upload a new screenshot.

Thanks Mike - As long as it is a known issue it's fine.

Hi @Big Mike

I have a question, when I have only open the f.io homepage in my Firefox browser it uses between 8 and 13 % of the cpu. Under Chrome it is only about 1%.

Do you know why and any idea how I can fix that?

Thanks for any help,
Michael

I only use Chrome so not sure, but my first guess would be some sort of extension maybe trying to block something that is causing the problem.
