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 100,000 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.

Hey guys,

We are going to add some new contests to our social media experience: Twitter Tuesday and Facebook Friday.

Please make sure you are following us on both platforms. In addition to the one Elite Membership code we've been giving away each week, we are now adding two more on Tuesday and Friday.

These new giveaways are specifically for people to share their trades and their charts/screens. You need to @ us (mention us) on the platform, with your post on Twitter or Facebook, and we will select a random winner from those submissions.

If you are already an Elite Member, we still want you to participate. You can then post the coupon code on futures io if you wish, so it can be given away or used by someone else that isn't Elite yet.

So the idea is: mention us/tag us on social media with your posts, and earn a chance for a free Elite Membership code.

I want to also just mention that to prevent abuse, we do require a $1.00 USD payment (which means a 99% discount) to use the code. If you want the money refunded, we can do that after-the-fact since we did say it would be free of course. But we have to record a payment in our system to make it work and prevent abuse.

Watch our social media closely...

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


As always, futures io has final say in all decisions of this contest.

Thanks,
Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
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.
6)

Tip
Another way to use the Beta Threadloom search:

If you are looking for posts by user, but would like to remove results from one or more threads, this is the syntax:


user:<username> -thread:<thread id>



You can even exclude multiple threads


For example

user:xplorer -thread:39605 -thread:38736

would return all posts by @xplorer excluding the Funny Pic of the Day and the Brexit 101 threads.



You can find the thread id in the title of the thread, for example

https://futures.io/traders-hideout/38736-brexit-101.html

Just a note on this as I got a question. You can still participate in contest by sharing charts on each social network, but prizes are being delayed in awarding due to @Big Mike being on Vacation. Once he returns we will go through the submissions and alert the winners. So get out there and start showing your charts!

Beta test threadloom search

Hello,

I am trying to use the beta test threadloom search feature, but it does not seem to be working, it brings me to the normal advanced search we have. It was working fine last night.

Was there any update on this being discontinued?

Thanks

This happened once before. Seems to be the same symptoms.

Last time it resolved by itself. If not, hopefully @Big Mike will pick this up when he's back and will be able to help.

Sorry for the 20 minutes downtime.

Kernel 4.19 deprecated an XFS fstab mount option that caused the file system to go read-only after a routine update. It took a while to come back online, the server hadn't been rebooted in over a year.

Please report any problems.

Mike

It's controlled by them, probably a server issue on their side that has been resolved.

The primary server isn't. Just a storage server, but the primary didn't gracefully recover from an NFS mount issue so I just bounced it instead of waiting longer. Probably because the mount went read-only unexpectedly.
