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 90,000 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.

New trading forums for non-English traders

Hey guys,

You may not know this, but 50% of the members on futures.io (formerly BMT) are from outside the United States. This means a large number of them do not speak English as their native language, though most can read and write English pretty well if they are traders.

When I first started this forum in June 2009 I did so to help traders, and to allow traders to help each other. The driving premise of the site is "Pay it forward", encouraging each individual member to help another member. In the end, everyone gets the help they are looking for.

For the past several weeks I've been working with the Moderators and about a dozen of the most active members of futures.io (formerly BMT). What I wanted to do is come up with a new section of subforums that will encourage all traders to feel at home on futures.io (formerly BMT), regardless of what language they speak (or write). It makes sense that communicating with your peers would work best in your native language, after all!

So today I am proud to announce that we've created a small number of new forums. These new subforums will be located under a new category heading of "Team Trading" on the main home page of the site. The subforums we've added here are broken down by language. It isn't possible to include all written languages, so I've tried to select the most popular and appropriate languages for futures.io (formerly BMT) members. As of this post, that list is:

Team Trading - Big Mike's Day Trading Forum

You'll notice that English is not on the list. The entire site is English only with exception to these newly created subforums, where the native language is not only permitted but encouraged.

If you are fluent in any of these languages please do me a favor and send me a private message. I need some extra help from the futures.io (formerly BMT) community to moderate these non-English forums to make sure their post content falls within our guidelines.

I have set the auto notification of new threads on the home page to exclude these new forums, just to keep the English-only structure of the forum intact.

Please share any feedback, and more importantly, start some new threads in these new subforums to better socialize with traders!

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

I will add it if you speak it and will create topics there

This goes for anyone, if I missed a language you think is widely used and should be here, and you speak it...

Let me know.

Yes, I will create it but am going to wait to see if anyone else steps forward with another popular language that I have missed --- I can't have them all, they need to be widely used -- as adding them takes a lot of time.

Hi Mike

Great stuff!!! If you need any help I can help you with Russian. I can write in Russian, but i do not have Russian key board on my system. If you need to translate something please let me know. BTW Google translation in the Russian page is not very good. But better then nothing.
You will find that most Russian traders are able to read and write in English very well

Great effort on your part to get us all together. Thank you!!!

I will see what I can do, but if you use Chrome it is built-in. If you use Firefox, there are many extensions you can download to make it "almost" built-in.

I would be utilizing a Dutch sub forum if it was present.
However, I have no idea if there would be a substantial demand for this within this community.
