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.

Congratulations to everyone who has a journal on futures.io (formerly BMT), the real prize here is the amount your trading will benefit from your act of journaling. I hope that you remember the importance of continuing the journal, and also remember to look back from time to time and read your old journal posts so you can gain some perspective of where you've been and where you are going, pick out your strengths and weaknesses, and continue to improve as a trader.

The original contest was to award (3) 150K combines which were provided by @TopstepTrader. I have decided to purchase two additional 150K combines as a way of saying "Thanks!" for everyone's efforts over this past month. I wish I could award a combine for everyone who participated, but unfortunately I have to draw a line somewhere.

The top five winners, as decided by futures.io (formerly BMT) members as of this post:

@PandaWarrior - 62 votes
@tturner86 - 59 votes
@GFIs1 - 51 votes
@alejo - 50 votes
@bobwest - 41 votes

Please note that the "Thanks" count may continue to rise over time (if you are viewing this thread at a later date) but the counts above were as of the creation of this post.

Congratulations guys! I will contact you via private message in a moment and will put you in touch with @TopstepTrader and they will get you squared away with your 150K combine.

I hope that you will continue your journal and talk about the combine and your experience as you continue moving forward.

Thanks guys!

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.

Congrat all of them, I was not making any difference during the voting (voted everyone who was continuasly doing his journal) but Nice job!

So goodluck for Panda for the Crude's bigger moves trade, Turner to having backup support from the new family member, and GFIs1 who is really doing the one shot one kill a day strategy. And dont forget Alejo who who stopped out by a tick..., but still great journaling and nice job!

I was surprised to find that I had won one of the prizes this morning. I have gone through this contest not really expecting to win anything. The additional prizes were a surprise.

I am happy to say that I voted for all those who finished ahead of me, and many others, and that I enjoyed and benefited from their journals.

Thanks to everyone who voted for my journal. I do appreciate it. The contest was fun, but frankly the journaling was more important to me.

Thanks to @Big Mike for running the contest and to @TopstepTrader for the Combine program.

Bob.
