Welcome to futures io.

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.

It is not unusual to see some folks on FIO referring to posts by their post number in the thread, as opposed to just posting a link.

Example: "Check out post #8546"


Is there a way to go directly to a post number referenced this way, does anyone know?

I looked around in the How-to section and searched for "post" but found nothing.

Sorry, there is not. I tried to implement this years ago with a developer, just couldn't get it done. It's made complex because some people's "post # xyz" are different from others -- because for instance moderators get to see deleted/banned content, or regular members maybe have a particular user on their ignore list. These factor in to what the post # is displayed in the thread.

It's a (bad/stupid) limitation of the software. Should be consistent between all users, but isn't.

The only thing that is fixed/consistent is the permalink option/link to the right of each post. That will always be correct, site wide, for all users. The next closest thing is the actual postid of the post, which is not the same as the "post #" in the thread view from a user standpoint (customer facing). The postid can be found as part of the permalink. I'll post this post I am writing, then edit it in a moment once I see what the postid is, so you can see it too.

Edited to add: ok, this post is postid 715222 for example. That is static/unique/fixed for all users. If you knew this number, which is not displayed in the typical thread view, you could jump straight to the post using shortcut URL's. But, it's not displayed in normal view.

TL;DR: Nope.

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.

Thx Mike, I had guessed as much but I thought I'd ask just in case.


It puzzled me that a few users would refer to #post number because, with the exception of posts such as #1 or #2 which are easy to find, there is no easy way to jump straight there.

it looks like the CSS stylesheet and related images aren't loading on the page. clear your browser cache as a first point of troubleshooting. other than that, its normally due to some transient connection problems between you and the server.

Thanks for reporting. Caused by change in logo and new CSS which happened to be cached at just the precisely wrong time.

I'll fix it in a moment.

Should be fixed now, please confirm.

Should have resolved itself but still, not a good thing. Thanks for reporting.

Wouldn't it make sense to just call it Index Futures Trading?
Should you rename Commodities Futures Trading to Commodities Full Size, eMini and eMicro Futures Trading?

Hehe. Well, SEO is a thing. Let me think about it, maybe I can accomplish both goals.
