Welcome to futures io.

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.

wow, lots of people finding links between creativity and trading. nice! in different ways. Lornz, i too am drawn more to the price action way of trading. i find you can sense the power of the move literally by looking at how the 5 m bars pulse. i tried watching T&S for awhile, but cannot process all those numbers flashing by. i just look at basic moving averages, and totally basic shapes - trendline, channel, flag, wedge, etc, look for vol spikes and just try to get into that groove and feel the pulse to spot the reversal. i used to try to trade the open to get those crazy options price spikes, but it's just a holy pain you cannot get filled quickly enough. now i just wait til 7 am ish and then try to find a reversal on ones that have moved significantly premarket. you can't expect those crazy gains like in the 1st 5 min, but then again, you still stand a decent chance of making at least 10% and sometimes on up to 100%. i am feeling sorry for myself because i got rid BAC calls this week for +150% and now they are up literally 1000% i think. that's the thing with options. you have to take alot of losers, and just be patient and wait for your crazy ones which make up for it. takes alot of patience and confidence. but then that's art too...so many drawings end up in the trash bin - you just have to keep producing.

10,000 hours - that's in fact been proven, hasn't it? that malcolm gladwell book. i know i spent *alot* of time drawing before i ended up in any shows. this does give me pause...easier to put that kind of time in when you're young.

easy to spot the 2nd half of life...it's when you start to have those annoying aches and pains every morning

feedback - hard to know how to proceed with that one. having been through one trading education plan, and having had to end it rather abruptly, i am quite skeptical of trading "education". this forum seems good though. glad i found it!

mes deux parents sont a la fois tres malade, et je prends soin d'eux. sans decrir toute l'histoire, l'experience m'a convaincu d'une chose: je veux decider de la journee que je veux mourir, et peut-etre faire un journee a Brooklyn, pour embaucher un mafieux a prendre soin d'elle rapidement et professionnellement - je ne veux pas languir dans une institution!
s'il vous plait pardonnez mes erreurs, il y'avait un temps tres long depuis que j'ai etudie la belle langue francais!
