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 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.

I only had a minute before it killed the site, but it looked very good! (and apparently works better than any DOS attack).

The only thing I really missed was the scroll bar (or the larger number of posts).

There is a scroll bar, and this shows at least double the number of posts that the old version it replaces did. So.... you might have seen it while I was trying to fix some CSS errors.

But for now, it is disabled because it was causing permission errors in other parts of the site where it shouldn't. Waiting for developer to fix. Can't put the old one back because I am too far invested into the new one to undo all those changes. It might be a couple days due to holidays, but hopefully not.

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.

No, I didn't see the scrollbar, maybe because I was browsing with my Ipad? I'm very glad to hear that it will show so many posts! But I've seen the permission errors...thought you kicked me off the site

In our last poll, I asked if futures.io (formerly BMT) should stop re-posting ZeroHedge news articles. The (slim) majority said yes. Plus the fact is, I have been deleting a large number of these articles before most of you guys even see them because they are just too over the top or distasteful, or are just full of ads for third party services I would never allow on futures.io (formerly BMT) myself.

So, I've decided to disable the reposting of ZeroHedge articles. The CNBC bot will stay.

If you guys see good ZH news stories, you should feel free to post them yourself manually.

Some wording in the New User "welcome" email has been changed. I'm posting the whole thing below.


Quoting 

Hello <username>,

Welcome to the Big Mike Trading forum!

The secret to success with trading is within you, and we can help you find it.

We are different than other forums you may have visited, so take notice. Our community works extremely hard to keep everything moving forward in a positive way. We firmly believe there is no need for rude behavior in order to accomplish our goals of helping traders be successful.

We also firmly believe in sharing. There is no secret sauce here. If you want to be a good trader, you have to do the time and gain the experience. We can help, and the first lesson is simple -- there are no shortcuts, no holy grails, no magic indicators or systems that will ever make you profitable. Only you can make you profitable.

Are you here only for the downloads and indicators? If so, you are doing yourself a great disservice. The best way to improve your trading is by interacting with the community of traders in the forum itself. Chasing after holy grail indicators will just slow down your journey of accepting complete responsibility for your own actions and trading, instead of using indicators as scapegoats when something goes wrong. Eye candy is great, cool new toys are fun (indicators), but at the end of the day you need to decide -- are you here to make pretty charts, or are you here to make money?

The members of our community are expected to participate. That means starting threads, replying to posts, and in general providing useful information. It is like pay-it-forward: as you make these contributions you will receive them back in the end, and everyone wins. A leecher or lurker is someone who only takes and never gives back to the community -- don't be one. If you truly want to improve your trading, you need to participate in the community. Don't believe for a moment that you have nothing to contribute, that simply is not true. Just open up and make some posts, you'll do fine and you'll be welcomed.

If your native language is not English, check out our subforums where you can post in your native language:
Foreign Language - Big Mike's Trading Forum

The forum membership is private. This means that you are here by invitation only. That membership can be revoked at any time for any reason. Rude posts are not tolerated. Advertising is not tolerated.

There are large sections of the forum that are only accessible to Elite Members. An Elite Member is simply a trader who likes the site and what it stands for, and has decided to show their support by paying to become an Elite Member. You can get more info by clicking Elite Access from the top of any page on the forum. We appreciate your support.

Welcome to the family!

Regards,
Big Mike

*** Downloaded files can be harmful or malicious ***
While futures.io (formerly BMT) tries to ensure that everything is safe, we do not guarantee it. This means that when you download something (for instance an indicator, chart tool, custom bar type, etc) from the forum you are taking full and complete responsibility for that action, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless futures.io (formerly BMT). You should proceed with extreme caution, especially with any files in which you can not directly examine the full source code (these files are commonly called DLL's). If you don't know what you are doing, ask another member for some help.

*** If you are selling anything of any kind (vendor) or are affiliated with a vendor in any way ***
We have a zero tolerance policy with vendors using posts on our forum to promote their business. So, first you must notify us before making any post so that your account is clearly flagged as a vendor. Further, vendors are not permitted to make any posts in which you promote your business in any way. This means no promotional posts linking to your website, blog, videos, screenshots showing indicators or systems, or any discussing of products, services, testimonials. Doing so will result in you being banned.

I have deleted the $25 / 3-month option of Elite Membership. It was not widely used, and I think it just cheapens the community to have this option. It is gone now. There is just one option now: $50 for lifetime access.

If I upload an indicator, and then choose the "pencil" to make changes, it display the following keywords:
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).



However, if I then click on "submit" to save the edited changes, the keywords look like (i.e. keywords are gone):
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


Am I doing something wrong?

It is a bug when editing an upload. When you first upload it, type in the tags and hit submit (the tags will be in the keyword input box, which in your screen shot is blank).

The developer has gone MIA. I will have to find yet another developer to resume this and about a dozen other projects. There is a huge shortage of quality vbulletin developers out there.
