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 – 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 don’t 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.

I live 55 miles north up the coast from St. Joe. It's extremely cold for this area. Wind chill temps hitting -30 to -35 for a few days now. Looks like some relief coming starting on Wednesday.

How do still have working water in your house?

In Dallas yesterday my pipes were frozen in my master bathroom and it was only 11 degrees (-4 windchill) here overnight. I can't imagine how basic things even work when it's -30, like running water...

I have city water. So far so good. The main lines I believe are buried 12-15' below the surface. So as long as frost doesn't get that deep, we're still drinking water and flushing the toilets. Furnance runs alot. Houses probably have more insolation here than in Dallas. Know anyone moving to warming climate like Ecuador???

This was taken by a friend of mine during calmer weather conditions. Looking through a hollowed out iceberg at Lake Michigan in Grand Haven, Mi. This is 20 minutes north up the coast from me.
