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.

Where was the wishlist entry?

There's no entry there, that's just a bunch of squiggly lines that I would draw after getting drunk on scotch. I refuse to participate unless there is some Benromach involved and I can consult Short Squeeze. His opinion is essential.....

In my defense, if this post sounds like gibberish its because of two reasons -

One, I am already on my first shot of scotch today
And 2nd (more likely), I just finished watching Bloomberg Business. They killed off a few of my brain cells with the utter garbage they call Business News. Seriously, who watches that nonsense. Who?

PS - I don't have a drinking problem, if that what ya thinking, I call it my truthiness enhancer (hic!), said he while sloppily spilling his drink...oops!

You should have been on that call today. Slow days call for some mood enhancing. But I read this close good enough for me. My trading may have gone in an unusual direction recently, but had it not I never would have had the confidence to go full time.

@GaryD, in accordance with our site rules, would you please verify that this Mentorship you speak of is completely free , that there is no money exchanged between parties, and that you are not requiring any third party tools or software to be purchased or earning referral fees or likewise?

Thx.

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Correct, I expect nothing other than to have some fun. This is completely free other than you will need to have access to futures.io (formerly BMT) as an Elite Member, which is just because I said so. I am not associated with futures.io (formerly BMT) other than as a member by choice. This thread is nothing more than a vehicle I have selected to communicate through. At least until it gets narrowed down some.

Guess I'm out of here to find some models and bottles...

Actually, that was just silly. I have been working on MT4 since around 4pm, it is now 9:30pm, and while I have it running on three screens, I feel like I have never traded before. This is a completely different game.

I have finished day two of trying to get Sierra Chart and FXCM to agree on how to get me online, and gave in tonight to look at a new platform. I have about 20 emails between SC and FX, about 5 help chats on FX, two support threads with SC... No one seems to know what to do.

So far, customer service at Mirus blows FXCM away x 10. Just my opinion of course. But I was being generous.

Hi Gary,

I'm sorry to hear you've been having these difficulties getting online using Sierra Charts with your new FXCM account. I would like to offer my assistance here. You mentioned that there's been quite a bit of correspondence between SC and FXCM already. If you can forward that email chain to me at jrogers@fxcm.com, I'll follow up with my colleagues who you've been in contact with to work on a solution for you.

Also, if you'd like to learn more about the MT4 platform, please let me know what questions you have. I can even have one of our platform specialists give you a call to walk you through the functionality. If you would like me to arrange such a follow up call, please let me know the best number and time to reach you in the email you send me.

Jason

If you have questions about our services at FXCM please send me a Private Message.

Thanks Jason. Just sent you a long response in the other thread about this. I try to keep this thread clean and tidy.

Or at least tidy.
