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 donít 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 usually trade 4am CST to 10 am CST


@wldman
I gather you don't like trade the opening and the closing hours of the European markets - too volatile?

No...

That is where all the fun is. I have not moved back to the London open but 4am to 10 am is the volatile time. That is what I like.

I think it would be easier to stay in front of the computer for long periods of time if your average trade takes up a large amount of time. How long is your average trade duration?

No...

Actually, I make 1 trade and than I quit. I devote more time training and improving skills.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.

there is no time limit -- sometimes it takes few seconds and sometimes days
-- all depends on the price action

P.S.
I think I'm becoming a junkie futures.io (formerly BMT) member
