Welcome to futures io.

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.

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.

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.

just got an email about the upcoming webinar.

interestingly this email showed up in my inbox as well as my spam folder, meaning twice. and that's for gmail.

edit: should also mention that the "spam" email arrived this morning at 11:40 am, and the "inbox" email this evening at 11:07 pm. so maybe that was a cause of the changes. so far all emails from this evening are in the inbox folder.

Hmm. I made a lot of changes today at the root SWIP ASIN WHOIS level, I am hoping once changes propagate delivery will improve back to the level we enjoyed with the old IP. I spent hours today trying to get the old IP transferred to the new server, the owner of Steadfast was unwilling to do it and it really pisses me off.

Seems fine from my side now. I had to click 'Not Spam' for several mails over the last few days. But today I received one thread update notification and one webinar reminder, both to my inbox.

Edit: been receiving a lot more now. All coming into my inbox correctly.

Diversification is the only free lunch

Yet another tweak to our mail server config, trying to improve mail deliverability.

Please take a look at emails stamped as of this post or newer, and let me know if they are arriving in Spam/Junk or not.

Mike

All fine here, futures.io (formerly BMT) emails are not marked as spam.

I haven't touched the spam folder but the number of emails has been picking up from futures.io (formerly BMT). Including the email telling me replies to this thread

After finding the futures.io (formerly BMT) mails in the gmail spam folder, I went ahead and created a whitelist for futures.io (formerly BMT). This of course is not the best solution, but until gmail reacts to the futures.io (formerly BMT) changes it works fine for me.

To make sure Gmail never filters as spam mail from a certain contact or domain:

Follow the Settings link in Gmail.
Go to Filters.
Click Create a new filter.
Type the desired email address under From:
To whitelist an entire domain (all mail from an address ending in "bigmiketrading.com", for example), type just the domain name or the domain name preceded by '@'. To whitelist "bigmiketrading.com", for instance, type "@bigmiketrading.com" (not including the quotation marks).

Click Next Step ››.
You can click Test Search before, of course, to make sure you did not mistype.
Make sure Never send it to Spam is checked.
Click Create Filter.

The above is based on the document you can find here.


Regards,

As long as you are client of a worldwide mail-agent you are EXPOSED!
Mails are "spam-filtered" and are of course BASE to to the next unwanted SPY attempt.

SO: BE alerted

In any case if you want to protect your privacy - take a small eMail provider to get bulk mail
and forget about getting followed on any step you are doing.

Think about it!!
