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 – 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.

thanks Mike, I haven't posted anything in a while, maybe i should be in a "where are they now?" thread! haven't done much trading since my wife got cancer last year, but I still watch and study, a few stock/options trades in my IRA, got caught up coding some institutional trading systems for a computational finance professor. right now i'm enjoying reading "The Ivy Portfolio" about the Yale and Harvard Endowments. especially interested in the benefit of trading inefficient markets vs. markets that are efficient or have too many participants in them. also still running the meetup. looking to make a comeback in 2013, some new ideas and systems I want to go live with, raising capital now, hoping to contribute some of my research to my elite journal.

I was wondering about you the other day. I'm very sorry about your wife. I didn't know or at least i don't recall. I hope you're holding up. I'm sure that can be very draining.

@Big Mike

Thank you Mike for running such an efficient and safe forum. This is the only forum I'm an active member of. IMO....................there's not another forum on the web that even comes close to this one!!!





Thank you again,

Rick

I echo this sentiment.

This is the only general trading forum of which I am an member. Never needed to go anywhere else. I dont have any other general trading forum to compare as a member, but I have seen a page here and there after googling a particular topic. Many of the inquiries lead me back to futures.io (formerly BMT). That makes a statement about the scope of futures.io (formerly BMT)'s reach, and about the frequency and quality of members post.

Webinars are consitently high quality. These in themselves have proved to be a valuable resourse. Being a member of futures.io (formerly BMT) has accelerated my learning curve in technical trading enormously, and is a significant factor in contributing to where I am today.

My only concern is that Mike dosent have a succession plan in place for futures.io (formerly BMT) for when he decides to move on to other endeavors.

prognosis is good, officially in remission, she has yet another surgery today to prevent cancer from spreading to some other parts, more preventive than corrective, hopefully this should be the last surgery. thanks for the kind thoughts. like trading, beating cancer is a lot about stacking the odds in your favor, but being aggressive against cancer can bring on side effects, just have to weigh the risk/reward of each action, health risk mgt.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
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.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Thanks for running an awesome forum Mike. I don't visit as much as I used to but futures.io (formerly BMT) definitely helped me in my path as a trader. I have easily had my elite membership cost back in education and resources.

Looking at the original members that are still active, I'm not surprised. This is one of the few places on the net that discusses important stuff like risk management and trading plans.
