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 Ė 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 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.

That's just to start with. While solving your mental issues, suggest you carefully think over technical aspects of your trading. When you do anything, you should clearly understand WHY exactly you are doing that. And I really mean that. While suggesting this to you, I'm talking same to myself)

I totally agree. I was once broke like all young men lol, and at that time I learn how to trade and it was a basic system I copied from someone else. My trades would produce but at the same time I would get excited and loose money because I was too desperate to make money.

As time went on I stopped trading because I realized my need for money was making me take bad trades. I kept following the market, jumping to other systems and trying to reinvent the wheel.

I wont say back testing is useless but, like everything it has its place in testing a theory.

Being in "NEED" of money will make you a terrible trader.

Keep things simple, start with a naked chart and really keep it naked for a while

Trading is like going to school or getting a degree. It takes time and everyone develops differently.

Like a book I once read said "THE MARKETS CAN DO WHATEVER IT WANTS TO DO" - Mark Douglas, Trading in the Zone.

Overnight success is not going to happen unless you put in the time and work.
