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.

Yes, that is the image caching bug as 'critical #1'

Mike

I can see his dropbox pictures fine, what's the bug?

1. my post count is accurate. threads started by me are not even close. IPB is showing maybe 1/8 of the threads ive started.

I spot checked a few other users and they seem accurate, so not immediately seeing why yours is way off. Can you randomly check a few users and give me the usernames of anyone you find with a large discrepancy?

I couldn't even temporarily add you to the Elite Members group. I have a ticket open with IPB already for the most pressing issues, waiting on them.

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.

'My Content' links go to first thread posts, so post numbers not yet done presumably.

All old links will be broken for now, I haven't started the SEO conversion yet. So ignore any broken links inside of posts that point to other posts/threads on futures.io (formerly BMT).

Also the 'download' section has not been migrated yet.

Thanks guys, keep reporting the issues. I am going to proceed to IPB 4 just to see what else we can come up with during the time it takes to solve some of the ones we've already found (and I've already opened issues with IPB for).

My post count seems accurate as of approx the conversion date.

I agree with @ratfink, it's amazing how much better our futures.io (formerly BMT) is compared to the out-of-box version. Hard to figure out how to find stuff.

I will have to sit down and go through it systematically tonight when there's a bit more time.

I did notice that most of the user avatar images in posts are missing, but not all. Big Mike is there, shodson is there, tturner86 and most others are not. @madLyfe's is just different. On the beta site, it's a man in a gas mask, totally different from his futures.io (formerly BMT) avatar and his futures.io (formerly BMT) user picture.

Bob.

i assume the content is read-only for now (as quotes/replies don't work) and that permissions is also blocking 'Likes'?

Don't judge based on the beta. Especially when it's still IPB 3.4 and not even IPB 4. This is why I want to control access to the beta, I need only users that understand what is happening.

For the avatars, yes it is pulling from gravatar but it shouldn't be, they should have been converted. Will be fixed later.
