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.

Haha 10 years later...
I second the idea of a 'where are they now' thread - even one from 5 years later.
May be quite revealing.
I have not been able to find the kind of consistency I had looked for and burnt out ( for various reasons) several years back and let it all go for a while.
I then focused on endeavours that offered a better probability of producing income and concurrent life balance - ie my conventional career.
Now I am looking at semi retirement in about 2 years so with that in mind I am looking at leveraging what I have learned about trading and the markets.
My plan is to trade the higher timeframes (up to weekly where I seem to do my best work) with the majority of my trading funds and the lower timeframes (ie day trading) with a much smaller percentage...unless I can find some consistency there.
I think I have ironed out the well known cognitive biases and the psychological stuff that can ruin trading results and careers. But it sure took some doing. Like I read somewhere in here recently....I am proud I have never blown an account. My risk aversion and management strategies protected me from that. I have had good periods of profitability along the way but nothing too exciting. But has my risk aversion prevented my success in some way?
Next chapter I will be more appropriately funded and know a hell of a lot more than any previous chapter.
Doesnt mean I will kill it though.

I get depressed by how easily people are satisfied, with so little argument.
