Welcome to futures io.

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.

I think it's possible, as we can set our status to invisible..


It is possible, navigate to > UserCP > Settings & Options > Edit Options > Tick Box Invisible Mode > Save Changes

I have been using this feature since I registered

Thanks for being open to critique Mike.

Something I dislike is the search box, or better said, how I work with it:

1) I type in a search term;
2) I see multiple interesting threads I want to read, so I click on one with the mouse scroll wheel to open it in a new browser tab;
3) The search box closes after pressing the scroll wheel;
4) If I now click the search button, or click in the text field, the search query is gone, so to open the second, third, and so on, search results, I need to retype the search query.

Could the search box be kept open?

To do what you're describing, try the following:
1 - type in your search term as usual
2 - When the results have appeared, hold down Ctrl
3 - Left click on all the results you are interested in (while keeping the Ctrl key pressed)
4 - Each result will open in it's own tab

This works in IE and Chrome. I presume some variation is possible in most browsers.

Diversification is the only free lunch

Wow, that works great (also with FireFox). Thanks DarkPoolTrading!

I've always done it the way @DarkPoolTrading posted, never tried it any other way. But it will all change with the new software.

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

This is not something I dislike, but a suggestion: Could the line-height of the posts be increased to say 1.5em?

For example, just a random post:

One more thing.. (Columbo style - 70's/80's reference).

I'd like to see a 'Like' button, as well as 'Thanks'.
And more frequent polls, it would be nice to see more stats on user views e.g., about current market events, market views etc..

Guys not sure if this is addressed already. At time's there could be multiple answers which are correct. Is that a possibility to mark and select in a thread today. If so is there a placeholder at the start of a thread where someone can straight away go the Answer/Answers selected. Well not sure if this worth doing if it's a quick small thread which probably is the case.

Also at times if we do not select the Answer....a possibility to "Thank" should exist . Well just mho. Not a biggie.

an ex: such as below...where i could not directly thank.
