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 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.

CNBC:
News Headlines

Gas down 3% in two weeks. Three whopping percent. Oil dropped what, 10% in the same time?

If oil was up 10% in two weeks I have a feeling gas would be up a lot more than 3%. What a game, I mean deal, these guys have.

Just FYI, 1.30€/liter in France, same in Germany and in most European countries, so that's something like $6.37/gallon...

Antoine Dodson

Hey 'errbody',

You probably already heard this one, but just in case:

Original: YouTube - (STEREO SOUND) Antoine Dodson warns a PERP on LIVE TV!
Remix: YouTube - BED INTRUDER SONG!!! (now on iTunes)

Be sure to watch the original so you can better appreciate the remix.

POST TURTLE
YOU'VE GOT TO LOVE THIS RANCHER'S OUTLOOK & COMMON SENSE APPROACH TO LIFE.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).



While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, who's hand was caught in the gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man...Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his role as our president.

The old rancher said, 'Well, ya know, Obama is a 'Post Turtle''..

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him, what a 'post turtle' was.

The old rancher said, 'When you're driving down a
country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a 'post turtle'.

The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued to explain. '

"You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he's up there, he's elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of dumb ass put him up there to begin with."
