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 100,000 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.

Thank You!

How far your clicking of the "Thanks" button will go to help the quality of this forum? The more, the better.

Recently, @Fat Tails deservedly passed the milestone of 10,000 received "Thanks". Many more thanks and congratulations to him.

It just occurred to me that @Fat Tails has posted at least 100 indicators downloaded on an average (just a guess) of 500 times each. That is an opportunity for 50,000 thanks. He has posted over 6400 posts helping people and answering sometimes ridiculous questions and requests. That is another opportunity for at least 30,000 more thanks if only 5 people were befitted from each.

That makes an opportunity for 80,000 "thanks", yet only 1 out of 8 bothered to thank him for his free and unselfish sharing of indicators and information that would otherwise cost most everyone a good sum of money.

This suggests only one thing: that taking free stuff and advice is considered granted and giving a "cheap" "thank you" to someone who provides something of "value" is too expensive. I hope that is not the case in this community and it is only an oversight.

Cheer!

@aligator

I totally agree with you...and since I discovered your 'Gradient Color Bars' Thread and took a deeper look at them and also on your thoughts and charts you've posted, it was only natural for me to give you a 'Thanks' in your thread...but you're probably right, too many people consider the hard work from others as a kind of self-evidence.

What an insight, thanks. Personally I wish futures.io (formerly BMT) were not free but came at some cost (though gratis of course for genuine contributors like Fattails). Seems that would help to filter out some of the 'you-owe-me-something-for-nothing' crowd. Simply giving value-for-value in the marketplace.
