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.

New mention and hashtag features

With the latest update (see #changelog ) there are some new features:

1) You can now receive emails/alerts when someone mentions you (ie @Big Mike).
2) You can now receive emails/alerts when someone quotes you.
3) You can now use hashtags, like #hashtag (same as Twitter) to tag posts with certain tags, and then people can subscribe to those tags and receive emails/alerts when any post uses them.

Mike

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)

@Big Mike,

This HashTag feature looks pretty good, but I don't know much about how to use it. For example, I would like to tag: #strategy, #Genetic Programming, #Machine Learning, etc. Do I just add the "#" in front of the text like the "@"? How do I deal with concepts with spaces like the above few examples?


NOTE: For some reason, my HashTags didn't seem to work above at all....??!?!?!?
Thanks,

@NJAMC,

I ended up disabling the hashtag feature because no one seemed to care, and it is going to cause a direct conflict with a new plug-in I am working on that I believe is far more useful. Sorry.

You can instead just use the tags system, which is somewhat similar. Tags are automatically generated and applied to threads based on words not previously recognized in the forum dictionary.

An example is the tags in this thread:
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


You can search for tags using the search bar, and go to machine learning for example.

Not as cool or hip as the hashtag feature, but I want to get the other plug-in that uses the # symbol working first and may revisit this later.

Understood, lets not get in the way of progress! I look forward to seeing your new feature.

For some reason, my mentions are not working.

When I type the @ symbol, the following text doesn't turn into a dropdown menu of usernames to select from like previously. For example @BigMike doesn't do anything. Also, using the full tag command text [*MENTION]BigMike[*/MENTION] (removing the * of course) doesn't do the trick either.

Also, one other small thing that I noticed recently, is that the formatting keyboard commands don't seem to be working for me either. Previously I could hit Ctrl+B to Bold, etc, but for some reason, I have to manually select the option via my touchpad now.

That's because my username isn't BigMike. It's Big Mike. Also take note it won't show up in preview, only once you post.

Different browsers have different capabilities with vBulletin. Perhaps you switched browsers or updated, etc. There haven't been changes on the forum side.

Switched to chrome after I got a chromebook so that might be the culprit

Just tried the mention & it worked, then I edited it out since I was just testing the feature. Thanks Big Mike
