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.

Are these typically just people who are checking something on a smart phone?

Where you ever thinking about making the site un-viewable until you sign in?

No, only a tiny percentage of people view the site on their phone.

And second point, no, there is already a big banner inviting people to sign up for an account (register). But I am guessing the 4,000 guests yesterday, probably a lot of them mumbled to themselves "I already have an account". Most people are not very technical, so I'll try to think of a better way to make it simpler for them to understand they should sign in.

Sometimes session cookies expire, and you won't automatically be signed in. Another example would be if you switched browsers, installed a new OS, bought a new computer, or run third party software to "clean" your computer. These reasons and more could cause people to not be automatically logged in.

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.

Please turn off the thread tracker

If you want me to be logged in while I browse, you need to turn off that thread tracker thingy.

It is not anyones business that I am browsing a specific thread.

Why is it necessary to be logged in anyway?

Is this going to end up like Trade2Win where I get several spam emails every time that I log in?
(That chased me off in a hurry)


On a technical note, the forum logs me out or drops me when I log in with the "Remember Me" unchecked.

If you want to be invisible, turn on invisible mode in your control panel.

You got spammed on other sites because other sites are overwhelmed with spam bots. I've worked very hard on futures.io (formerly BMT) to ensure that does not happen. If you ever get a spam message, use the report post feature to report it.

It is necessary to be logged in because you can't receive private messages, can't reply to threads, can't show appreciation by saying Thanks to other posters, and of course if you were an Elite Member then you would need to be logged in to access the Elite Only content.

Free ipads and paid indicators...?


Big Mike View Post
We've got a couple big milestones coming up. There will be a party and prize giveaways

The first is reaching 100,000 posts. It will probably happen around the very end of March. The second is our two year anniversary in June. 100,000 posts is quite an accomplishment for a forum that is only 21 months old!

I am thinking of giving away some iPad's and a bunch of trading books thru Amazon. I'll post the details as we get closer.

I also wanted to just record that today Feb Tue 2/8 we tied our previous posting record set on January 13th, which is 410 new posts. Yesterday was also the busiest day ever in terms of how many unique registered members logged on to futures.io (formerly BMT) (1,124). futures.io (formerly BMT) also gets about 2,500 unique unregistered people visiting each day, for a total of over 3,500 unique people a day on average.

While I look forward to seeing 500 post days in our near future, I am continually working to make sure futures.io (formerly BMT) maintains its helpful, positive, forward-thinking attitude which makes us a very unique destination for traders on the web. Please also take a minute and thank the Moderators for all the work they do to help me out: @sam028, @max-td, @LukeGeniol. Thx guys!

Mike



You celebrated the milestones with giving away a few iPads and forcing your members to pay for what others create and share for free? The indicators can be downloaded only by paid members now? Some celebration I'd say... Congrats!

Today we hit 20,000 members. And these are real people We deny over 100 new registrations daily that are flagged as duplicate accounts or spam bots.

We also hit 150,000 posts a couple weeks ago.

I'm very proud of what we've accomplished (unlike some people like the post above this one). I'm proud that the site continues to honor its original goal of "pay it forward", and that we continue to reward those who are the most helpful. And I want to say thank you for helping me make all this possible!

This month we will be giving away a nice 24" Dell 1080p monitor and (9) trading books (your choice) to the Top Ten posters with the most Thanked posts this month, another way of showing our appreciation.

In November, we'll have our annual Thanksgiving Charity Drive so that we can as a group help those who are less fortunate. We'll also start the nomination process for our end of year annual "futures.io (formerly BMT) Best of Trading" awards, always a fun time to decide the best of the best.

In the coming months we have many more contests to announce and many highly respected educators coming on-board -- and I am proud and excited to be able to do it. But that is for another thread...

Thx guys!
