Welcome to futures io.

futures io is the largest futures trading community on the planet, with over 90,000 members.

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.

is there a thread about what you like most on bmt?

Some similar threads but not one with that exact title, feel free to start one if you like.

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.

I have a small dislike about futures.io (formerly BMT)

I use a lot of graphics in my post and now they do not disappear...so that is not my issue.

However, I use Manage Attachments to upload my graphics but when I finish my post and submit it, I often forget to manually close the Manage Attachment window.

It would be nice if that window would automatically close when you submit the post.

I just noticed that there is a limit to the number of private messages I can send. It says 1 per every 60 minutes. I assume this is to cut down on spammers and scammers. I don't recall seeing this before so not sure if it is new or not.

However, that seems to be a little on the excessive side if it is solely aimed at cutting down on spambots.

It is really hard to have a conversation with someone with that kind of limit and it effectively limits your communication to snail mail like speed, especially if people are in different time zones.

Would it be possible to lower this significantly or change it so that it doesn't apply to replying to a message or even give a daily PM limit. I would prefer to be allowed 10 PMs a day that I can use all within one session.

Just really frustrating to try to ask someone a question, have them respond within five minutes of messaging them and then being unable to respond with a follow up question until what will essentially be tomorrow.

Just my humble two cents.

The limitation is to prevent spammers that spam the entire membership list consecutively.

Elite Members don't have the restriction.
