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.

I am a discretionary trader.

I have thousands of hours of screen time and thousands of backtesting.

When I look at chart I usually see nothing, but maybe once or twice a day I see a pattern which I know works, so I enter and most of the time win. After some time passes by, the pattern may not be visible any more, but in real time it's there.

This pattern has nothing to do with head and shoulders and other idiocies. It is everything, the whole feeling of the price of different charts of everything. In that special moment you know you've seen the market act like that so you just enter the trade. It's a rush decision.

It can be some dude dumping a large order and moving a market the wrong way, it could be anything, stops, this and that.
