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.

@xplorer please try again now, I think I found the missing permission and gave it to you guys.

Mike

Yes, I can definitely see the 'rename' option now. It's too late here to upload the original file but I'll try tomorrow and let you know.


Thanks.

Hey guys,

It is my great pleasure to announce that @bobwest has joined the futures io team as a new moderator!

Bob has been a valuable member of our community for more than six years, during which time he has done an exemplary job of setting an example of exactly what this community stands for: helpfulness & understanding of the challenges of being a trader.

Thank you @bobwest for agreeing to become a moderator -- by doing so, we'll have one more set of eyes watching for any problem posts like spam or rudeness, and another set of eyes to be looking for threads that are duplicates or placed in the wrong sections and need to be moved, etc etc.

As always, if any of you find a questionable post, please use the Report Post icon -- the yellow exclamation icon to the righ of every post -- and all the moderators will be alerted, so action can be taken as needed.

With the addition of @bobwest, the standings are as follows: @sam028, @tturner86, @xplorer, and @bobwest. These four gentlemen deserve your thanks for helping make our entire community better with their service as moderators!

Mike

Some changes have been made to the way we display our "favicon" on multiple devices, mobile/desktop, etc. The changes may take a day or two to fully propagate throughout the caching system.

If you see any problems with the new favicon in your web browser tab, or on your mobile device, please report it.

Hi Mike
Is there a glitch with Custom User Titles. I had mine as 'Elite Member' but when the style changed a week or two back it changed to my default of Market Wizard. I re-saved it then back to Elite Member but noticed this morning that I was a Market Wizard again. I have changed it back to Elite Member but was wondering whether my chosen Custom User Title is going to keep deleting and going back to the default setting?
Not a biggie, just something I noticed since the recent typeface style change.

Guys,

While I was at yoga for the last hour, the site started experiencing some problems. I am investigating. Site is responding extremely slowly or not at all until I identify the issue.

Guys,

While I was at yoga for the last hour, the site started experiencing some problems. I am investigating. Site is responding extremely slowly or not at all until I identify the issue.

Mike

Site is back up. I identified the issue, it was caused by a particular user using a download manager to download a 1GB file and split it into multiple concurrent downloads (a large number). This somehow caused a race condition in our nginx caching, and the server was in a loop of trying to fill & delete the 1GB cache over and over many times per second.

I'll look into finding a permanent solution to prevent this in the future.

Apologies for the downtime, it happened moments after I left the house for yoga and thats why it took so long for me to resolve -- my phone was off.
