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 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.

Yes, it is a known issue -- it would only happen when you aren't logged in.

It happens when a new post is not yet in the cache. Most of the time, someone trying to read a new post is logged in. We had to make a sacrifice with what could be done with our current system, we chose to optimize for who is generally not logged in -- which are spiders/bots -- and not real people, who are actually logged in.

Mike

Makes sense and it sounds like the right call.
The caching makes such a great difference for real users. Thank you.

Another small update, our webinars landing page will now show if you are already registered for the event -- no more guessing whether or not you registered.

This goes into effect starting now, so if you registered prior to this post -- it won't reflect it. But rest assured, your registration is still valid.

Mike

I would love to solve it, but the issue is with our SEO software in vBulletin, the way it handles redirects and #post tags, it's simply impossible to solve this currently. It will be all fixed at one point when we finally roll out the new forum software.

Hi guys,

I've implemented a feedback system into our outbound newsletters, it will look something like this:

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


It's a very simple one-click feedback, you like it or you don't -- so that we can improve future events. Once you submit feedback, you'll also be given the option to send us more info/more detail if you wish.

I would appreciate it if you can click these buttons for each event to give us feedback. This type of feedback is based on the interest of the event -- it is not necessarily reflective of the quality of the final webinar, for example. We will work to implement those types of feedback systems soon.

Mike

Hi Mike,

I got the email for the scaling-in poll and clicked the "Yes, I like this topic" button. It Wwent to the feedback page OK, but I found 2 things:

1. The feed back page is set up as if it's for an event registration, which this was not.

2. When I typed in my feedback text and clicked "Submit," nothing happened. No indication it was received, or that I needed to select any of the items in the dropdown, or anything else. I think it ought to let me know that it was received or that I should do something....

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


(I clicked on the link at the bottom to return to the events home page, and that's where I went. But I was not actually "returning" there because I didn't come to this page from there....)

Bob.

Hi Bob,

I need to make further improvements. I believe your issue was not choosing an actual rating on the drop down boxes.

This is a left over form from years ago for webinar feedback, I will redo it soon. Today if I can.

We do receive the vote (basically a +1 or -1 score) when you load the page, from the newsletter button, which was our primary goal to measure interest.

Thank you

Hi guys,

Today I worked on improvements in the feedback system.

Just to prove it, you can give me your feedback on this new system itself.

Like it:
https://on.futures.io/nnj41

Dislike it:
https://on.futures.io/qjuzi

When you arrive on the page, we record your thumbs up/down automatically. But you then have the option to give us additional detailed feedback in three categories, plus a comment box.

Please feel free to test it out.

Thanks @bobwest.

You should be seeing something like this, and each of the three questions has a star rating to the right -- you can rate us on a scale. We're hoping to gather feedback for each event.

I will continue to improve this as well, just now I tried to improve the visuals.

Please confirm that you are seeing the page like this:

This is what I get for both:

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


It looks like you get half a star if you click more on the left side of the star, rather than the center. (I'm not totally sure, due to the colors being fairly low-contrast.)

Bob.

Correct. I'll try to improve the colors. Check back later
