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 100,000 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.

BMT's 1 year anniversary: webinars, prizes

In just a few days, on June 10th, Big Mike Trading forum will turn 1 year old.


This forum was created to help my fellow traders by providing them a community that was truly committed to each other. Through that commitment, each trader has gained more experience, wisdom and insight into the market because, as you guys have found out, when you start to educate or teach someone else you also directly benefit yourself. It takes a lot more work to teach than to be a student.

Over the past year we have literally grown by leaps and bounds. I've spent at least 50 hours a week dedicated to improving the forum over the past year, and I believe that hard work shows (pat on back ). But, the real triumph is in what the community -- you guys -- have also worked so hard to build. Thousands of you have spent countless hours on the site: answering posts, sharing new indicators and strategies, formulating methods, and working together to become better traders. I also want to thank all of the moderators who have worked tirelessly behind the scenes with me to help make futures.io (formerly BMT) a well-oiled machine.

Thanks guys!

Here on futures.io (formerly BMT), we truly have a unique community -- and it is all thanks to you! We have a very strong bond, especially within the Elite user base (those who have donated to support the site). That bond resonates above and beyond what you will ever find elsewhere and is what makes futures.io (formerly BMT) so unique. You don't have to look at very many of the tens of thousands of posts here to see evidence of everyone genuinely helping each other, a rarity indeed with most online communities. Great job, guys!

In the past year, we have all been in this together and have worked to help each other, and in so doing we've also greatly helped ourselves become better traders. I had a vision from the very first day I started the forum that if I could convince people to get behind the concept of "Pay It Forward", and provide a site that was both welcoming to new traders yet advanced enough for power traders, I knew the site would be a great success. And it has been!


To celebrate, we have some fantastic events in store throughout the month of June. I've been working with five companies for this event, and they are (in alphabetical order): Al Brooks, DTN/IQFeed, Mirus Futures, MultiCharts, and NinjaTrader.

We'll be giving away over $4,000 of trading-related prizes!


The specifics about each prize, and how you can with them, are listed below. I also want to let you know that each of the five companies above will be conducting a special webinar presentation on Big Mike Trading where they will be speaking about their product or service, as well as answering questions. Some of them are going to discuss new products and features, and I know a lot of you have many questions that you would like to get answered... A full schedule of all the dates and times of the webinars will be posted very soon.

Please help spread the word: tell all your trading buddies to come visit us!

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)
