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.

Announcing more prizes! This is just a little bit more of what we're giving away -- in total, more than $18,000 of prizes in total as part of our 10-year celebration!




The first five members beginning NOW Thursday August 1 @ 1:30PM ET US that write new posts that meet the following conditions below, will receive a $50 Amazon Gift Card:

a) Only posts created after now (see the time of this post) will count.
b) Your new posts must receive 100 or more "thanks" combined
c) The thanks received count is cumulative -- multiple posts count cumulatively, so write several!

Notes:
a) Your post can be in any section of the forum except the Off-Topic, Tech Support and Jokes forum.
b) Site sponsors, vendors and moderators are excluded from consideration.
c) In the event of a tied number of thanks, the member who has the most "thanks received" overall in their user profile will be the winner
d) Winners of past "10-year thanks contest" events will be excluded, to give everyone a fair chance

Important Tip:
You can write multiple posts. All posts after Thursday August 1 @ 1:30PM ET US will be considered, not just your first one.

Write high quality posts to receive more thanks/appreciation from members!

First five members who hit this will each get a $50 Amazon Gift Card!

Let the race begin! I'll post regular updates to this thread letting everyone know where they stand in the contest.

Mike

So we have four out of five winners:

@kareem40, @NW Trader, @Silver Dragon, @mtzimmer1

Once the fifth winner crosses 100, I'll award all the prizes!
