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.

Fear the ban hammer

While browsing older posts, I find user that seem to have been banned and am curious what previous members have been banned for. I don't get the impression that you (Mike) and the moderators are up tight from the short time I've been here (a breeze of fresh air among so many financial forums).

We don't discuss publicly the reason for a particular ban, but this covers most:

- spam/advertising (99%)
- rude behavior
- attacking other members

Keep in mind you, the user, will not see any of the above. You will just see "banned". That is because the post(s) are removed and not allowed to stay on the forum if it is against our guidelines. We keep records in the moderator section, and we decide collectively if someone should be banned - usually after that person has received multiple warnings.

Perhaps 1 in 5,000 posts is deleted due to rude behavior or etc. This is not censorship. This is preventing futures.io (formerly BMT) from turning into mud-throwing like some other forums.

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.
6)

Anyone whos ever tried to ask for advice or insight on some other forums online would totally agree that there needs to be moderators to babysit the ones that are disruptive , and drop the hammer accordingly . When you started this site you made your intentions clear in that you wanted to see a forum where people could help and look for help without the BS and you followed through .
