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.

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.

BMT Milestones

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!

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.

Mike, gotta say finding this forum was a god send....but it was a bit of a trap as well. What? There are so many free things here that I got lost in the all eye candy at first. It was entirely to easy to holy grail chase on the forum.

BUT it was much better than paying a whole bunch of gurus to do the same thing so I guess its a double edge sword.

I have made some good friends here on the forum and look forward to more.

Thanks so much for the site....

Congrats futures.io (formerly BMT)'ers!

Sometime Wednesday Feb 16th we'll hit 90,000 posts on the forum. Just 10k shy from the big 1-0-0 k, expected sometimes towards the end of March.

I'm trying to think of some creative prizes and how to give them away for the 100k mark, if you have any thoughts let me know.

Right now I am leaning towards another Appreciation Contest for the month of March, which is probably when we'll hit the 100k mark, and kinda rolling it all together into one promotion. Reason behind tying them together is simply that it is the frequent posters that have got us to the 100k mark, so seems reasonable to reward them for this accomplishment. And since I don't want to reward simply based on # of posts per person, the Thanks Contest will reward for the posts that are most meaningful and well received by the futures.io (formerly BMT) members.

Thoughts? Possible prizes for consideration are things like an iPad and anything preferably trading related, like books or e-books for instance.
