Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • 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, and we will never resell your private information.

location globe

I saw this "location globe" on the left side of the homepage of futureswizard.com ;


(if you just hover and move your mouse pointer slowly from somewhere in the middle then closer
to the edges from 12 to 6 o'clock , it shifts like a hand moving a real globe )

The site where the globe widget is from:

Revolver Maps - Free 3D Visitor Maps

Just thought it was interesting all those people in various places around the globe interested in futures trading on a single vendor site such as futureswizard.com ; which further reinforces my opinion that retail trading is so big every other neighbor in one's neighborhood is probably trading something behind closed doors and one wouldn't know about it. Welll , no neighborhoods in Antartica probably But futures.io (formerly BMT) could probably have a few in Alaska(?)

Yes, the Google Maps project. Two years in development, and an ungodly amount of money. So many developers I can't even keep track anymore. And on hold because no developer can ever be bothered to finish a job they accept, it seems


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.
