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.

Tapatalk updated to the newest version. This version is supposed to add "Thanks" support.

Mike

The client app was updated today, at least in the Android market. To "thank" a post, just click on the post and it will popup the option to use Thanks. I tested it and it works.

With some luck, this version may improve the stability of the app (errors) as well. Not crossing any fingers...

I'm proud to announce some special deals for Elite Members only. We negotiated these specials as a way to say thanks for the support to our Elite Members.

futures.io (formerly BMT) does not receive any compensation for these referrals. Even though we believe these to be great products and services, you should always do your own research before doing business any a company.

Not sure if it is working properly?

I get 20 Mbps from other tests and less than 1 Mbps from that test for some reason

Yeah I know, same issue here. Not very reliable it seems.

This one usually works pretty well Speed Test | Bandwidth | Broadband Internet Services

just found this, seems to work pretty well

Find out and monitor how fast your Internet connection is.
Find out and monitor how much Internet traffic you consume.
Verify whether your ISP charges your Internet usage fairly.
Detect a suspicious network activity on your computer.
Perform simple network tests such as ping and trace route.
Be notified about excessive Internet usage.

Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test might also be a solution. you can check the ping time from your office to chicago, frankfurt or wherever you trade

Yes, the app I installed is there portable version. But for whatever reason, it seems unreliable compared to the main site, which I use and recommend as well. Pingtest.net is probably more useful for traders.
