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.

Yea, I didn't know I turned it off or that was even an option.

1. You don't know the future.
2. Anything can happen in the market, including:
-market stops you out and keeps going to unimaginable levels
-market stops you out and reverses direction to hit your initial target
-market hits your target and keeps going to unimaginable levels

Removed all sub-channels from chatbox. Not useful these days. Everything in main channel now, also saves space.

Don't recall disabling the chat. Must have been a long time ago as my saved futures.io page is "New Posts" and I almost always navigate through the site from there, and never see the chat box page anyway.

Ah I see, yes same reason -- all posts in that section are excluded from search, and a "find post" feature is also a search. I've added to my list.

This change has been made -- the chatbox & the search feature will now include results from the 'News & Current Events' subforum.

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)

Hi Mike,

Is there any possibility of getting a time stamp on the chat window? Unless you have been logged in all day, you have no idea how long the responses have been there.

Maybe this only works for me but when I hover over a chat post, the time displays.
No need for a timestamp unless it does not work for you.
