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 the winners of the Big Mike Challenge 2015:

1st place - @GFIs1, a $250 Amazon gift card
2nd place - @rahulgopi, a $200 Amazon gift card
3rd place - @bobwest, but he removed himself from the contest
3rd place - @6MillionDollarMan, a $150 Amazon gift card
4th place - @iqgod, a $100 Amazon gift card
5th place - @PeakGrowth, a $50 $100 Amazon gift card

@PeakGrowth and @iqgod were actually both tied for 4th place, so I decided to increase the 5th place price from $50 to $100 for a total of $800 in prizes, so that @PeakGrowth and @iqgod would receive equal prices for equal positions in the contest.

I will be contacting the winners via PM shortly.

WOW!
Never thought to be in top 3 - and now I see number ONE...

Thanks @Big Mike for the contest and prizes.
As well many thanks to my longtime followers who are interested
and eventually voted in this thread.

This contest shows how much a journal can be fruitful for own development as
well as staying very focused.
Over time updating the journal on regular base keeps the personal trading structured.
I can only recommend every trader who is serious - to open a own journal here on futures.io (formerly BMT).
The audience is large and feedback comes quickly.

Good luck
Good trades

Thanks to @Big Mike and all who voted....I really thought my Journal was getting a bit lonely there the last 2 weeks, after I "rebooted" my strategy....I continue to develop it, and needed the extra incentive of this contest to get started.

I plan to continue journaling until this thing beats me for good!
(Or, preferably, I beat the market, but that is a long ways off, so far.)

I have a new idea for an exit strategy I will be posting tonight...curious to hear your opinions.

Thanks @Big Mike

Wasn't sure if I made it into the contest since I started a few days after July 1st.

Hopefully my journal added some value.
