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.

Yes, a signature is global for all posts. But URL's don't work in signatures, this was actually something we did to prevent spam a long time ago. I ended up disabling signatures all together recently for non-Elite members, so now I could go back and enable URL's in signatures for Elite Members probably. I'll look into it.

Mike

Probably good to stick to your guns, as an "Elite" member is just as capable of producing SPAM; just not for long. (By the way I wonder if Hawaii is still the largest per capita consumers of the product SPAM.)

Oh what a week. I quit a long time ago today as I vowed I'd get two positive weeks in the books even if it is only SIM trading on my part. It seems to be more money is made on taking small losses than anything else, but that message has yet to sink totally in.

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.

Can I still join this contest?


Joined the forum many years ago but other matters hindered my participation. Just getting back now and here is a contest I think I will enjoy. I also think it will benefit others. I'm sure I can still trade a minimum of 10 days by Oct 31.


Let me know.

Always refreshing to see trading from another traders point of view. I think Big Mike will let you join in the contest right up to the last day of the contest, but not totally sure.

Have a great week.
