Welcome to futures io.

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.

I haven't forgot guys. I'm just dealing with several priorities, and also contending with being under the weather. I'll try again tomorrow to finish the polls.

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.

Tip


Cast your votes below for the futures.io (formerly BMT) July Journal contest.

You can locate each users journal by reading through this thread and following their posted link.

Please read my rules from post #1 for what the minimum requires of the contest were, and then use your discretion to decide if the member met the requirements or deserves your vote. I am letting each member interpret those rules as they see fit.

IMPORTANT: When evaluating your winner, please remember to only consider posts made within the July time frame. This contest was for July only.

If there are any ties I will cast the final vote. I have final say in all decisions.

Voting will end on Saturday, August 15th and I will follow-up shortly thereafter with the winners. The voting is private, you will not be able to see the poll results during the poll voting period.

The names I've entered on the poll options are directly from this thread as per the rule in post #1. If your name is missing, did you post in this thread with a link to your journal?




Who won the July BMT journal contest?

Just to clarify, you aren't seeing any poll results correct? The poll should be private until after voting is closed so no one is influenced.

Correct, made me think it didn't work. But then I realized I couldn't change it so it must be locked in.

Hey @Big Mike, please take my name off the poll.

I only posted in the thread to show someone how to post a clickable link to their journal; I didn't mean for it to register me for the contest.

I didn't do much posting in July anyway, and didn't intend to enter this year. If I got a vote it might affect someone else's results who would otherwise get the vote, and I wouldn't want that.

Thanks.

Bob.

This poll software is crap. If I modify the poll, it will be reset entirely. So you'll have to stay on, but I can disregard any votes for you in the final result as you wish.

Yes, let's do it that way.

I hope people who might vote for me will read this far first....

Link Summary, made it in order of original posting. Hopefully make it a bit easier to review journals, probably help to be re-ordered in poll order however this took long enough

Also a little bit frustrating as non elite members can not view those who posted under the elite journal section.
