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 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.

Entire inside of the house is covered in crazy dust.... Keeping the office doors shut to prevent, as much as possible, the dust from getting all over screens, computers, network drive, routers, home automation hubs, battery backups etc. So with all the noise and my new trade machine awaiting on-site tech support still no trading happening. Arrrrr

I just had to measure it to order the stone and calculate the area. I got 18 feet 5 inches or 5.61 meters to the ceiling.

Here is what was done today. Mason had many pieces to cut for the bottom so took a good deal of time.
Materialism at its finest.....lol....
Materialistic = headache

It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.

I seriously need a nice office with a good view !!!.. it is almost 10 months since I quit my job and the one room setup is beginning to tire me out, esp hiding from the kids part. I am talking to a prop / HFT firm here on Monday for platform development and trading ( they have a trading desk other than HFT ). Let us see what life brings next !!!!

I am using the programming books as monitor stand... may have to find a different stand for monitors !!
