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.

I mean when have read a post, we know what is in it. But if this post is edited and changed, then we don't know now the content of the post. Maybe the change is not substantial, buy many times the change is important, and now we are not notificated that the post has changed.

Might be an idea if there was a change log on the post so you could see previous versions of a post if it's been changed.

I know this may be more DB intensive because it would be adding multiple versions of a post to the table... but just an idea.

That already exists, but it's only for administrators. It isn't practical to make old revisions public, because sometimes a revision is made to correct a privacy mistake (uploaded sensitive info).

A better option might be to allow posts to be edited up-to 60 minutes, and then not edited beyond that. Long enough to correct type-o's or fix obvious problems.

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.

Yeah I agree... But the 60 min window is a bit tough... I see stuff a few hours later and will correct a type o or grammar.

When a user is on your ignore list, and someone else quotes their post, right now that post is shown. Would like to have it so that when a user is on your ignore list, you also don't see their quoted post so you can just pretend they don't even exist.

Mike

I talked about to have ignore threads.

I go every day to "new posts" function. I use to have 3 or 4 pages of threads with new posts. And many of them I decided not to follow, but now I have to read every day its titles just to ignore. If we could declare a thread ignore list, the new post list would be very reduced (threads not in the ignore list, and new threads), and this is a big amount of time in a year.

BTW I want to say that I find many very good threads and posts in them, but so extense for me, and unfortunately, I have to select and prioritize because of this horrible issue called time (a human figuration, btw).

Could it be, it's an idea as you say, but with a notification that has been a change, that is the center of the question.

I can see having a thread be ignored if you have placed the thread starter on ignore. But I don't agree with ignoring other threads in their entirety really. There is already the option to ignore a particular subforum, like if you want to ignore subforums about trading platforms that don't pertain to you, or ignore foreign language threads --- you can already do that today.

Is different to ignore a futures.io (formerly BMT)er (all his posts and threads) than ignore just some threads IMO.

Maybe add the ignore thread to where it doesn't show up in new post page. But you can still view the thread.

Kinda like a reverse subscription.

Personally I don't use new post at all, I go an subscribe to the threads I want to read and then check my CP daily to make my rounds through the different threads I want to read or comment on.

My two cents is that the 60 minutes would be too tight. I'm not sure what the edit window is now, but I could easily notice or remember an error much later than that.

Bob.

Currently 5 minutes without the notice, and 24 hours total.
