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.

Over the two years since futures.io (formerly BMT) was created, I've noticed a lot of very distinct and unique patterns when it comes to vendors who try and use futures.io (formerly BMT) as free advertising. Some other sites call these people "shills". I just call it a violation of our forum rules.

I have decided that in order to curb this behavior, I will implement restriction on posting in the "Vendors and Product Reviews" section of the forum. Regular members must now have 10 posts to be able to post in that section.

Any vendor who wishes to respond to posts made in that section are free to do so, as long as they follow our forum rules.

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

@GridKing, try it again now.

Due to an error on my part, the Downloads hit count (in the Downloads section) for data containing the number of times an indicator was downloaded from July 16th to July 30th was deleted.

This doesn't effect the "most popular downloads ever" stats, only the "popular downloads in the last 30 days" stats. So it will correct itself in 2 weeks.

Oops.

Threaded Hybrid mode has been removed. 99.9% of you don't know what it is, much less used it. It was causing a lot of server errors due to a PHP issue with this older function of the forum, so I just nuked it entirely.

Perhaps this is my browsers fault (FF 5.0), but when I click on the "Elite NinjaTrader Automated Trading" subforum on this page, I receive the FireFox error message stating that 'the page is not redirecting properly'. Clicking on "Elite EasyLanguage Automated Trading" subforum link in the Automated Trading forum does work and sends me to this subforum.

Regards,
Jura

I believe I've worked-around this issue for now (by renaming the subforum):

https://futures.io/elite-automated-ninjatrader-trading/

Please let me know.

If you have bookmarked a direct link to the Arcade, you'll need to change it (the new links are on the navbar).

I had to change a few things due to some worm attacks aimed at the arcade.

Please report any problems.
