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.

I've done my best to make a post in everyone's active journal thread letting them know about the contest. If I forgot to post in your thread it was just an oversight.

Good luck everyone!

Mike

Amazing.... Wow and here I thought you had written some code that would go through all of futures.io (formerly BMT) and add that message to each one of our journals automatically.

As always I am impressed with all you do for us.
Thanks again.

I suppose only Elite member votes are counted. If not, Elite journals have the disadvantage that not everyone can access their journal to read it.

My journal link

Here is the link to my journal! I am 22 and just started live trading the /ES daily on 9/15. The first few posts were from my first time in the market that did not end up well but does contribute to my overall story, it really starts on the 9/15 post! Thanks

Guess it is like a handicap in golf. Since all those in the Elite Journal side are Elite and have a lower handicap

Who knows maybe Big Mike will open the Elite side for journals up to everyone during the contest, just to show the the non-Elite how the other half live.... lol

Now if I could just start hitting the broad side of a barn with my trading I'd be even happier still.

Have a great day.

RichJamo's ES intraday trading journal

Hi all,

It seems I can't post a link to my journal until I have at least 5 posts. I should reach that soon as I still need to post my trading strategy outline, as well as my first two days of trading - yesterday and today. I will come back and add the link to this post as soon as that's done.

This is my first attempt at creating a journal, and I will be looking to trade the ES every morning and report on my trades, reason for trades, and results in the journal.

Please vote for me if you find my journal useful, by clicking on the 'Thanks' button below.

EDIT: Link to journal:

Hi all,

I will not participate in the contest.
Not because I think it is a bad idea - it is a GREAT contest indeed!

I won't participate because
a) I am trading a combine already and don't intent to start another one. Ever
b) there are so many generous people out here that deserve it to get one of those prices more than I do

Why do I post anyways?

Because I want to explicitly support this contest and express my gratitude to both Mike and the members of futures.io (formerly BMT) for everything they contribute to this site being what it is.


Thanks, guys.

Untrue, votes are counted as I stated. Since I didn't say anything about Elite it means it doesn't matter.

As for being at a disadvantage, I would say virtually everyone who is active in the forum is an Elite Member and probably any "disadvantage" is erased by the support of other Elite Members who want to support the members that also support this site.

In other words, in the voice of Lana on Archer (I like this TV show): "noooope!"

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.

If you want
to support our community, become an Elite Member.
