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.

New subforum "Hire a Consultant or Programmer"

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


Important threads within that forum (sticky posts) which you should read before making a request for paid services:

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


The idea behind this subforum is to allow people who wish to pay for consulting or programming to make a new thread with their request, and then they can receive via Private Message a response(s) from members who wish to take the job.

The section is only available to Elite Members.

Threads in the subforum are read-only for everyone except the original thread creator. This means you cannot reply to someone elses thread. The only way to contact them is via Private Message.

Big Mike Trading is in no way responsible or liable for any transactions that occur privately on the site, or for any losses or damages suffered as a result. If you have a problem with a transaction, it's on you - we are not going to get involved, so you want to exercise your best judgment before any money changes hands.

I modified the behavior of the Search button on the top right of the page. Apparently some users never clicked the white input box next to search, they only clicked the search button itself. So they missed the instant search and other search features entirely.

Now the search button will always pop-out the box. You can always get to the advanced search by clicking advanced search.

Just an FYI, I am close to launching a "Recent Members Videos" section on the forum homepage, which will highlight the most recent video journal uploads from members.

I am doing what I can to encourage these, as I think they are great. I've also just hired a developer (again...) to make a futures.io (formerly BMT) Video Journal windows app that will be free to Elite Members, and will make it a 1-click process to capture your video and upload it to your thread.

OK, I have made the mod live. It's on the forum homepage below the forum listing.

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


It will only pull videos with extension of flv or mp4 (playable by our pop-up video player), and only from Elite Members to prevent a regular user from abusing this.

For those of you who are regularly contributing Videos, thank you -- and please remember they are on the home page now, so try to include a brief description instead of just a few words so that the forum homepage looks better. I also want to point out that Elite threads are still protected, non-Elite members will see the thumbnail and preview text but will not be able to see the content.

Please report any problems.

Thanks! Very nice.

A "hide/show" handle in the title bar on the right side would be appreciated.

Something that I miss from this forum is a little icon next to the name of the person who started the thread. I saw this on other forums and found it handy to indicate the person who started the discussion with his question.

Since we have a lot of people here on futures.io (formerly BMT), and some have not-easy-to-remember names with numbers and (seemingly random) letters, such a feature might also be handy here on futures.io (formerly BMT) (in my personal view ).

If you mean an avatar, the problem is most people don't have one... like you for example

Requesting feedback --

I will be adding an abbreviated economic calendar to the home page of the site to show today's and tomorrow's events.

I am considering events such as below:

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


I will incorporate this into a simple calendar style format (line/row).

My question is -- do the events listed cover most of your requirements when it comes to needing to know the reports of the day? I believe the answer is yes, but looking for feedback from others before proceeding as it is quite some work involved.
