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 – 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.

I am not sure this is the best way to count the vote. I think it is better to count the vote in the actual journal itself.

Hello cory,
yes, that is also a possibility. But then new or younger journals would have no change.
Also, with much respect for the long-running journals, younger journals sometimes offer new and fresh ideas.

Hi guys,

Congratulations to everyone who participated in this journal challenge! I firmly believe that journaling is the single most powerful thing you can to do improve your trading, and kudos to those of you who are doing just that.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


The four winners are: @Pa Dax, @Rrrracer, @bobwest, @FlyingMonkey.

Each of you will receive a $125 Amazon Gift Card, courtesy of our sponsors NinjaTrader and Stage 5 Trading. I will be contacting you via Private Message in a moment, asking for the details necessary to award the prizes to you.

We will be having another journal contest next month, so please be on the lookout and prepare yourself

Mike

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Thanks to everyone who voted - I'm humbled with the support and votes - thanks to all of you!
Starting a journal has been one of the key elements in improving my success as a trader. There's a big difference in promising yourself to never move a stop again or do crazy stuff in a mirror versus pledging the same in a public journal. It has a very different effect - a much better effect in fact. It takes time to record thoughts and views in realtime, but it has become part of my discipline routine now. I also really enjoy comments or questions about why I do stuff and how I see the market and in general it leads to great conversations - even (or especially) from those that trade in a complete different way - so be sure to keep those coming my way.

Shoutout to @bobwest, @FlyingMonkey, @Rrrracer and all other journal keepers - upmost respect for all of you.

Thanks!
