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.

I've changed the Private Message email notifications to give the option to go directly to the PM and reply.

So much for not making changes prior to futures.io (formerly BMT) 5.0, lol. But I had some email related stuff today to do...

Yes I have. All I can think about is how much work it is going to be to get things the way I want it. We have a very long road ahead, but I am anxious to move away from vBulletin.

I am not overly concerned with the actual "conversion" (database). I am more concerned with all the customization needed to retain a lot of futures.io (formerly BMT) features. And then I also am not crazy about the out of box experience, and will need to do a lot of heavy modification to a) make it something I like, and b) make it similar to the current futures.io (formerly BMT) style.

It will be an enormous project involving who knows how many developers and graphics design contractors, but I think in the end it will take us where we need to be for the next 5 years or more.

Please post follow-ups in the futures.io (formerly BMT) 5.0 thread.

Test of "Reply to Post" option.

Let's see if it goes up OK.

Bob.

Edit: that worked.

Has anyone noticed any change in behavior for the deliverability of futures.io (formerly BMT) emails? For instance, they used to show up as spam, now they don't -- or vice versa. Or you started getting a certain type of email that you weren't previously receiving at all (like thread updates).

Yep, I just receive your announcement on the Lawsuit AMP vs futures.io (formerly BMT) which showed up in my spam folder...

I just made the necessary correction in my Email software, so everything should be fine again.

OK good to know. What email provider do you use? Are you using their web interface, or an actual app (Windows)? Was it marked as spam online on their interface, or by your third party software?
