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.

Popups are the bane of our existence

as soon as I logged in today I got a newly formatted webinar reminder that steals the focus of the entire browser window.

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

I don't know about you, but psuedo-popups are as bad as their real deal brethren. People invented blockers to curb them for a reason. If you need to resort to using these, there's probably a better way to do things, and I just wanted to voice my opinion that I think this is a step backwards.

Conall

This is a current topic in the changelog thread. If you want to be sure @Big Mike sees this, you could make a post there.

Mike just mentioned in that thread that this was going to be put in place today, and asked for some feedback, so you could be first.

Here's Mike's post: https://futures.io/feedback-announcements/2497-futures-io-forum-changelog-180.html#post716946

If you respond to it, it's guaranteed he will see it and reply, and possibly change and/or fix.

Bob.

Edit: I don't have it because it only shows if there's a scheduled webinar you haven't registered for, and I've registered for this one. After seeing what the thing looks like, I might be posting there too.

Hmm didn't even cross my mind as an issue. It has to do with the community we're a part of. It's not monetized in any way. I simply x'd out and went on my way, similar to what happens when I get a private message. I'm notified and then chose to enter the pm at that time or another time. Again, I don't see the issue here.
