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.

@Underexposed maybe you are not the best example because your trading style is different than the majority so you aren't feeling the community support as much?

I've been trying to build the equity side of futures.io (formerly BMT), as well as he swing side. Like I said, I appreciate your thread

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 think that is the core of it. I don't feel the community here. On the other hand I also don't feel enmity that is so prevalent on other sites. There is really only one person that I have had much of a dialog with @ratfink and I enjoy discussions with him a lot. Other than one that I choose to ignore, I cannot count the number of threads that I seem to close by commenting on the topic

Yeah that is probably the reason. Thanks for your endorsement of my journal....appreciated

It took me a while to realize there were other forums and whole other sections of the site that I didn't know about before I became elite.

I also didn't read nearly as many threads as I do now.

I just added this thread to the ones I follow, and I noticed I had 155 subscriptions.... now, 156.

This is a lot of reading every day. Most of these threads, of course, are no longer that active, but I do read a lot of stuff. Occasionally I pare down the list, but I add to it too.

Much of it is interesting but not my thing (I do often learn from them anyway), some are right up my alley, some have given me reason to change what I thought my alley was, and in any case there's often some interchange that's worthwhile in some way or another.

There is community here, and many, many different points of view, as well as cordiality and exchange of ideas. No reason that anyone else should make a decision just because of my reasons, but it definitely is there.

Bob.

Thanks for sharing.

The actual numbers clearly show non-Elite Members are the minority, not the other way around (when looking at who is active). Right now 307 members on-line, 27 of which are not Elite, everyone else is. I mention this because of the "accessible to anyone" comment to try to show you it doesn't make a lot of sense.

Hey Mike,

This actually ends up being my first post, so Hi!

I thought I would add my two cents as a recent elite member, I first found this site at the start of this year while searching google for renko alternatives for ninja. At that time I decided not to worry and moved on, I did not really look into any of the forums.

Only last month I wanted to resume my previous strategy ideas and needed a renko alternative. I remembered this site and the elite section downloads, the joining price was worth it for this alone.

Since then I have started spending more time looking through past webinars and reading the trading journals of the experienced traders. This has been really eye opening and greatly beneficial, while it wasn't what i was initially looking for it has become more valuable than the couple of tools i initially joined for.

Special thanks for contributions by FT71 & Peter Davies
