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.

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.

So Bezos beat Elon, but it's kinda like comparing apples and oranges given the difference between space and orbit. Elon says it's a difference of achieving mach 3 (Blue Origin) vs mach 30 (SpaceX).

Sometimes I scratch my head on the sub-orbital 'space tourism' i.e. 100k up and down viability. Any friends who understand physics would rightly ridicule any 'astronaut' claims.. fun maybe or just a ridiculous vanity trip for the ultra-rich (and yet maybe not that bright..?) I'm not sure.

In 2001 I was fortunate enough (at a fraction of the cost) to do a MIG 29 jaunt up to 20k meters or so. It was great fun. If it was a little longer and the curvature of the Earth a bit more curved.. I really don't think it would matter that much? I experienced lots of Gs then zero gravity for a bit, ok no floating champagne service and not much room obviously but I know now what it feels like.

Even with a 27 minute flight (we did a bit aerobatics on the way back..woohoo!) it was plenty of sensory experience, probably far more? I guess there is a group experience and you can't have that in a MIG.

I just hope some useful technology and a generation of usefully skilled people will come of Blue Origin/Virgin for Mars etc.

Rekindling the Right Stuff


I'm sure many have seen this from the series or FB posts but I don't think it is off topic.

Gives me some glimmer of hope, not that the scientific minds and leaders of exploration will work harder but that the public consciousness might look upwards again if we get past this micro-dark age?

"We built great big things, made ungodly technological advances, explored the universe"...

Full version so jump to 3:15 to skip the preamble but I really resonate with his character's demeanour..
