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.

Once you're here, you can never leave... It's on the homepage, bottom right.

I was hoping there could be a huge big red button in the center of the page.

how hard it is to either print a page or print attachments

2nd biggest dislike....

how difficult it is to read one of these multi-hundred page threads....

just try reading something over 500 pages...
some of these threads go back within 1 year and are well over 150 pages....

One page at a time on a tablet without killing a bunch of trees to print them out?

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.

First thing I do whenever I register on a new forum is change the default number of posts per page to the max allowable in the control panel, usually it's 40. Much easier to scroll down 40 posts than to be loading pages every 10 posts or whatever the default is.

A solution to both of the above problems:

You could also use this nifty utility which 'appends' the Next page automatically to the current browser view (and you finally have ONE page of content that you can print to a PDF and then read preferably on an ebook reader like Kindle)

PageZipper - Life's too short to spend clicking "Next" « PrintWhatYouLike.com

One minor gripe I have is that futures.io (formerly BMT) will continue indicating that you've been quoted in a thread even after you've checked the thread. For example when I get an email on a thread i've subscribed to and someone has quoted me, ill click on the 'go to newest post' link in the email. However even though i've at that point looked at the relevant thread where i've been quoted, futures.io (formerly BMT) will still indicate that I have 1 notification.

The "Your Notifications" section will only be cleared once i've actually clicked on it.

Hope that makes sense? Maybe this is done on purpose?

Not a gripe really but more of a suggestion.

Would like to see a 'Back to Top' button that allows us to click and go to top without having to scroll all the way up again with mouse wheel/other. Button should appear as soon as we go down page a little and follow up to bottom.

Could then set thread length longer to save going page to page so much on long threads.

On every thread, under page navigation is 'top of page' button.

Since it will be an entirely new mention system, it will probably be different in the new version.
