Welcome to futures io.

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.

Journal Contest Idea

First off, congratulations to @Big Mike, the moderators, and other members here on 10 years!

I had an idea for a journal contest prize but didn't know where to put it so thought I'd share it here. Please feel free to move this thread/post elsewhere if you feel it doesn't belong here.

I appreciate and respect the prizes that sponsors have furnished in the past so please don't take this negatively, but I'm journaling to improve myself as a trader, not for a prize. I've had a journal in the elite section here and have posted every trade I've taken for just over 3 years now. I can count on one hand the number of times that other members have piped in with constructive criticism or suggestions.

My idea is see if some of the great past webinar guests or contributors on the site would be willing to review and offer suggestions to the winners' of the journal contest. I was thinking of someone like Dr. Brett, @FuturesTrader71, @Jigsaw Trading, @kevinkdog, Adam Grimes, or anyone else who focuses on and talks about having a solid plan and process behind trading. The commitment wouldn't have to be that big and could just consist of a half hour phone discussion.

This wouldn't necessarily have to pertain to the trading results, but could be along the lines of journal structure, metrics being used, the way the person journaling is talking to themselves, or any other suggestions to make the process of journaling more effective.

Just a thought, let me know if you think this could be a good idea.
