Welcome to futures io.

futures io is the largest futures trading community on the planet, with over 90,000 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.

Today the Twitter "follow", Facebook "like", and Google "+1" buttons have all been moved to asynchronous loading instead of synchronous. Took me long enough, but finally got it done.

This means that if one of them is slow to load (Twitter slow, Facebook slow, Google slow) then it won't slow down the loading of futures.io (formerly BMT) pages.

Mike

Maybe I'm the only one to notice it, but it's a huge improvement, the pages are much faster to load.

A couple of enhancements to the thread info section at the top of every thread.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


1) There is now an easy "Follow Thread" button next to the name of the thread. A lot of people aren't aware it is possible to easily follow new replies (by email) to their favorite threads. This will hopefully draw attention to it.

2) Added a section to list the number of file attachments in the thread. This info was already present to the right of the page navigation section, but apparently a lot of people miss it. This should make it more visible.

The "replies" and "attachment" numbers are links, it means you can click them to bring up more info.

BTW, I've already requested one change with the developer on the relative time mod. When viewing posts in the postbit, I want the precise time listed for anything older than "hours ago" (like it used to be). So relative time will stay for anything newer than "hours ago" and the old fixed time format will return for the rest.

May take a day or so to get this modified.

The effort was worth it, Mike. It has made futures.io (formerly BMT) faster. Keep up the good work.

Related information about how much memory these facebook and google+ buttons consumes -

Quoting 

Wallflower: Un-Socializing Your Web dietrich.blog

I was looking at about:memory and noticed entries for Facebook and Google+ URLs, even though I didnít have either open. I figured they were probably from the social buttonry that decorates the web these days. No big dealÖ except they were taking up a bunch of memory! The Facebook button was using over 20mb and the Google+ button was taking over 40mb!

I have never clicked either of these buttons.
So I wrote Wallflower, a simple Firefox add-on (restartless of course) that removes these buttons from any page your browse to, saving your precious memory, CPU and battery life for the content you actually want.

Today added a new 'embed' button when attaching images to posts.

When you click the 'embed' button, it will put the [img]path-to-url[/img] automatically into the post window for you where your mouse cursor is.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


If you want to embed multiple images into the post, remember to click your mouse to a new location in the post body window before clicking 'embed' again and again.

I am still working out a couple of bugs, but please go ahead and report problems.

Also yesterday or day before you may have noticed that now when you embed an IMG into the body of a post, it will no longer show the thumbnail below the post (duplicate).

I've also made it so that the ATTACH bbcode keyword functions the same as the IMG bbcode and is no longer a smaller size.

Just noticed this doesn't work in IE9 (last thing I test...). I'll see what can be done. Always something broken when it comes to IE.

is there a way to print an entire thread easily including attachments? I've printed my thread and it was somewhat easy but there were no attachments. Some were screen casts so those are hosted elsewhere I realize and probably not printable.
