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.

Thanks to everyone who responded to my email blast earlier today asking for help.

About 700 people responded so far, and with that I was able to make some changes to the new YouTube channel that I couldn't do until we crossed the 500 subscriber mark.

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)

@Big Mike

do you want us also to "Like" every Youtube video again?
For Google search, something.

Yes of course, "Thumbs up" to the videos you appreciate will help us tremendously. Basically, YouTube ranks search results based on popularity, and one way it measures this is with "Thumbs Up" or engagement rate per video.

Has there been any announcement when it comes to replacing BMT with futures.io in members posts - that's modifying the content (I know no context change) but essentially some posts do not represent what they have typed in at that time (there is no "edited by " note or I'm really blind-if so I do apologise) - don't know moderating policies, and please don't get me wrong here just saying

sent from phone

Consistency over time

In the sea of messages in my inbox, mails from this site stand out. None of other messages has .io extension.

Taking a look at some of the analytics today for the first time since the change (late Friday).

The decision to re-brand the site was difficult, as I've shared in detail, so obviously viewing hard numbers is something that caused a bit of trepidation.

The amount of data I have so far for comparison is extremely small, so no real conclusions can be drawn. It didn't stop me from looking at it, however.

First time visitors: Up 58%
Bounce rate: Improved 17%
New user registrations: Up 33%
Organic search traffic: down 23%
Pageview traffic: Up 27%
Unique pageviews: Up 24%

So all good news except for organic search. I believe it's just a temporary result due to how Google is re-indexing.

But again, it's too soon to draw any conclusion. Will be keeping my eye on this.

Do you have a Google Search Console account for FIO? If not you need to create one, do an XML site map of the site and submit it to Google through the Search Console. Easiest and quickest way to let Google know of updates/changes to your site and get it reindexed.

Yes. All the sitemaps are automatically generated. Check out our robots.txt file. I manually updated Google's link as well.

HAHA, just looked. I can't begin to fathom how many pages there are on this site.
