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.

FIO 10-year Anniversary: Over $18,000 in prizes, awesome webinars, and events!

Hi guys,

It is my absolute pleasure to announce that this June our community is celebrating an amazing 10-years!



I am extremely proud of what our community (of over 100k traders) has accomplished over the years -- we are always eager to help one another with a positive attitude (and none of the rudeness). It is something we have all worked hard together to accomplish, and every member of the community should be proud.

What makes our community so special is the personal stake that our Elite Members have. It's just one of their many investments within their trading portfolio

In addition, our community has industry leading vendors that make some outstanding sponsors, and they have made their generosity and commitment to fellow traders known once again with their contributions to our special 10-year anniversary event.

In the coming days, we will be announcing an impressive list of over $18,000 of prizes to be awarded to community members. We will also be announcing an impressive list of special events and even more special webinars (in a new and exciting format). Stay tuned for that!

Tip

This year, the prizes will be awarded based on participation in this very thread. See my next post for more information on how to participate and be eligible to win over $18,000 in prizes!

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

What to do to be eligible to win the prizes?


To be eligible to win some of the over $18,000 in prizes, we ask that you participate in this thread by sharing your story.

Specifically, we are asking for you to make a post sharing your experience with our community, futures io. Tell us when you joined, why you joined, what you found -- tell us if you've been helped, tell us if it's improved your trading experience.

Share with us what you like or dislike about the community the most -- tell us what keeps you coming back, tell us what separates futures io from other communities.

Within this post, you can also feel free to tell us about yourself, about your own trading, about your journey -- what has worked, what hasn't, what you've learned and what you still are trying to master. Share with us what makes you feel like a member of an extended family here on futures io.

In a few days, I will be posting the schedule of events, and a full list of all the prizes (over $18,000 this year!). That information will be shared here in this thread. We'll also be posting on social media, so it would be smart for you to click the buttons on the top left of our site and follow us on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter!


Last, I want to mention that we each owe a great thanks to all of the members here within the community that make it what it is today. I had a vision 10 years ago that we could accomplish something great, but since then it has grown larger than I could have imagined (back then, it was simply "Big Mike Trading" -- remember guys??) and I am so proud of how it has turned out and what our community stands for.

When you make a post in this thread sharing your experience, please note that you are giving your permission for futures io to use your post, in part or in full, for future marketing material -- and we may or may not mention your community member name in doing so. See the next paragraph for why...

We welcome all feedback, positive or otherwise, and we love to hear members sharing their stories and their trading journeys. We want to share these stories with others, because we know that most have gone down similar paths -- and it's a bumpy road. It's always of great comfort to know you are not alone, and to find help and advice from those that have gone before you. Our entire community is built upon participation, and we often hear from members who are reluctant to share -- and we always encourage them to take the leap, make the post, ask for help, and start participating. Their trading will thank them!

Thank you to everyone!

Mike

I am particularly excited about a new upcoming webinar format that we are calling "Battlestations". But this time, we aren't sharing pictures of trading desks -- instead, we are putting two traders head-to-head and naming a topic for them to debate, in a live webinar format.

We'll make the schedule known soon...

Thanks Mike. Your support for traders is highly appreciated

We all share a common element in our journey: the struggle.. and helping each other out as a community, learning and growing together can have a true impact on one's character.

For me the FIO community or as it was called back in the day Big Mike Trading have given a lot of guidance and I would not be nearly as good of a trader without it.

Also big thanks for all the members for making it the place that it is today.

Cheers

Mike, well done for reaching 10 years and maintaiing a strong community. The reason I joined 3 years ago was because of the warm reception and helpful advice I received in my early posts. It was clear early on that the vibe on this site was different. At first, I was only really interested in the elite indicators section. I wasnt all that interested in reading other peoples journals because in my mind I had this trading thing figured out and no one was going to influence me and tell me how to trade. Until that is, I started reading other peoples journals and realised what an utter noob I was (recently graduated from 'utter noob' to 'noob').

I have learned a lot from the traders on this site. What has been most useful is the knowledge that the struggle is shared by many, and that this burden can be lightened by participating with like-minded traders. It is like a group therapy session and I don't mean that in a flippant way. I read the advice from other traders on this site and also try to contribute by sharing my own experience. This is what makes futures.io different to other communities out there on the interweb. People here are genuine.

If you asked me to pick my top 3 most influential characters on this site then without any hesitation I would say Mike, Tigertrader and Inletcap. The combined wisdom of these three is quite extraordinary.

I am looking forward to the head-to-head debates that you have planned. That will be a lot of fun.

Well done Mike for keeping this place going, and a salute to all the other regulars on here. Its a great community and I am glad to be part of it.

August 22nd, 2009


When I first came across Futures.io it was Big Mike's Trading.
I was ONLY searching for indicators for Ensign Software and Ninjatrader.
I was pleasantly surprised by the community and the abundant resources available on Futures.io:
Indicators, answered questions, webinars, forum posts about trading and strategy development.
I immediately signed up and later became an elite member.

I had been trading since 1990 but the progress was slow at best.
The growth I have experienced by being a part of Futures.io is amazing.
The value to new traders is the best value available anywhere.

Over the years I've gone from a visitor to an elite member and lately as a Market Wizard.
My status changes with my activity and busyness with my job (I still run my own business).

I've never found a resource that even comes close to Futures.io.
The availability of indicators is second to none.
The community of traders is the best I have ever experienced.
When I need help with any trading topic, I find Futures.io the best place to find answers.
To pick out one or two users that are my favorites is difficult because there have been so many over the years.
Many of the members here are true guru's in the industry.

Futures.io is my one-stop location for all that I need:
Indicators, Webinars (unmatched anywhere for training), Questions, Journals.
I have even become experienced enough to answer a few questions others ask.
BTW, through the forums, I have even learned to write Ninjascript and create my own indicators, bar types, and strategies.
AWESOME!!!

One of the best things about Futures.io is the moderation.
Many other forums 'moderate' the community to extinction or no moderation at all.
On Futures.io, I can browse the forums knowing if things get 'questionable' they will be immediately resolved by moderation.
I am not continually concerned about abuse on the forum or that some scammer will be lurking on the forums.
Vendors are registered with the site and moderated ethically but still allowed to contribute on the forums.

It is great to be a part of the greatest trading community on the internet.
It is not only the best trading site but also provides community participation in charity work.
The 2018 Charity Fundraiser for Ecuador was amazing, it made me feel as if I was there handing out gifts.

Thanks to Big Mike for providing a great venue for so many years.

Rejoice in the Thunderstorms of Life . . .
