futures io is the largest futures trading community on the planet, with over 90,000 members.

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.

Trading, Empathy, & Resliece

I've noticed that trading (even when on losing streaks) has made me much more relaxed and resilient to stresses at work and home. And I've found that the daily process of always trying to see the other side of every bear or bull setup has made me more empathetic and sensitive to other's points of view when we diverge.

Am I alone? Anyone else experience this?

You know that there are a lot of websites that post articles about the connection between brain activity and trading
(just read one on the tradorax site). When I am trading, I'm more relaxed because I do what I love, it is the best hobby one can find. On the other hand there are very stressful moments and my calm exterior becomes a nervous wreck. I guess that we should find some way in the middle so that we can continue to trade for a long time.

Stay calm

I like a quote (perhaps not exact) from Big Mike "if you want to know yourself, start trading" . I've been active for about 4 months now, and its been 15% trading 85% person building (reading/writing/rehashing old memories/learning what I didn't know). Its been a heck of a journey and its only just beginning.

No OP, you're not alone.
