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 Ė 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 donít 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.

1- search features could be enhanced, it's sometimes tough to find stuff easily
2- people going off topic (that's nitpicking perhaps)
3- too much vendor activity needs even tighter rules for me. As I still see vendors jumping into topics totally unrelated to their product and then slyly plugging.
4- people need to get more involved in the wiki
5- would be nice to see a newbies section, for specific ring fencing of basic queries for new joiners. I see a lot of repeated questions by newbies.
6- would like more webinars - from vendors as now yes but also from active senior traders on here. Like a show and tell, or Q&A format similar to what futurestrader71 does already.

Nothing too seriously wrong though, this is still the best trading forum online! Still learning a lot here but there's always room to evolve!

Thanks

Sands.

7- I would like Mike to remember about the promised follow-up webinar to his first "afternoon with Big Mike" (thanks for that one!). I can see he even gave up the idea to schedule it at some point. I was nice when he had a placeholder for it under the upcoming-events

Since I post a lot of screen shots my main desire is some way to drag and drop images from the desktop into the reply box here to make it easier to post screen shots.

I wouldn't really consider this a dislike but more or less a consideration - Staggered comments when replying to specific messages would be nice for categorization of side tangents to not interfere with the main topic of a thread.

Already supported on futures.io (formerly BMT) v5.0 (drag and drop images).

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.

Functional Add-on

Mike,

I was thinking that on the small box where the topics are at, maybe you can highlight the topic for the user if he already participated in that thread. So if you are logged in, you could jump back in to see the updates posts.
This may increase participation and feed back from users.

Right now, you only see the updates via an email, but many don't open their emails frequently.

May require some programming but would be functional and useful.

Matt

PM with any questions about optimusfutures (800) 771-6748 (561) 367 8686. THERE IS A SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS IN FUTURES TRADING.

wow I apologize I didn't read the first page. Interesting that you already have this covered because it's a game changer for the better especially considering most traders have multiple monitors making dragging and dropping a breeze compared to the traditional one monitor users where their browser is full screen blocking the ability to drag from the desktop.

It would be interesting to have a newsfeed for subscribed threads instead of having to open up each individual one. Each post in the feed would contain inside of it all the posts since you last opened the thread and the title of the thread on top of each box containing to identify which post belongs to which thread. Idk just an idea

One minor thing I dislike it that the layout isn't fluid. I don't run my browser full-screen, but rather have it sized such that I can place it alongside other windows I'm working on.

While other sites adapt their width to the width of the browser, this does not happen on futures.io (formerly BMT) (I'm running FF 28.0, in case this is a browser issue).

For example, see the horizontal scroll bar for me in this topic:

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


It's not a huge issue, but I do find it somewhat annoying that with every visit to futures.io (formerly BMT) I have to resize my browser.

There is a minimum width requirement of the forum. Otherwise things like the embeded videos and images wouldn't work (in their current form). Most the other sites don't have those features. Anyway, it will be updated in futures.io (formerly BMT) 5 regardless.

Once you're here, you can never leave...

It's on the homepage, bottom right. Most people are using private computers and don't need to ever log out. Having multiple user accounts on futures.io (formerly BMT) is against our TOS.
