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 – 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.

Hi Mike,

Good idea.

But why have you not included a category for 'Paid For' Trading Rooms?

I appreciate issues about promoting commercial vendors, but you do have categories for best broker and best data feed etc which are commercial endeavours.

___________________________
i agree with Steve on this.

many "for pay" trading rooms have merit and are worth mentioning to get feedback from members who have used them as a means of gauging their subjective worth.
i would like to hear from other members about their experiences using the rooms.

but if this idea is included there needs to be subcategories because some rooms trade only eminis while other trade stocks, etc.

Starting on Wednesday Dec 1st, there will be multiple polls on the site to let you guys vote in each of the categories. I have used the nominations you made here, as well as added several of my own.

The voting will continue until Dec 31st, and the winners will be announced January 1st.

More details to come in a couple days.

Mike

"Merit" is a broad term thats needs to be defined into smaller units ie: most seemingly logical approach, most entertaining(yes there are some good ones who make it fun to lose ur money,most obnoxious ,did I make money, most hocus pocus?...

Overall no room can beat the 95% loser, of ur money odds, if thats the only measure, this will be a short or no list..
Those running the room have better odds.

here is my greatest

most entertaining: " Billy" IOAM

most seemingly logical approach: backtothefuture

most expensive: Viper

least expensive: Woodies CCI

biggest dud: Felton trading, TradeMaven

most obnoxious : any room with a "BRIT" or pet trader
