Welcome to futures io.

(If you already have an account, login at the top of the page)

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.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community.  It's free and simple.

If the authors of these studies have failed to "enlighten" you.....I doubt that I would be able to.

C'mon Jeff. Don't be so humble. Give it a shot.

I thought I would add a bit of levity to this hot and heavy debate...


A POSTSCRIPT TO OUR TRADING EXPERIMENT:

TEAM YELLOW: Woody got violently ill when the market moved against him. He fainted. An ambulance was called. He is fine. Should you like to visit him he is at the Memorial Jewish Hospital. Room #409. He says no flowers please as he is allergic to perfumes of any kind.

TEAM PURPLE: Spock is upset as to why he wasn't able to do equally as well and has demanded we repeat the experiment.

TEAM GREEN: (happily eating cheese)

TEAM RED: ...010110010011110111....

TEAM ORANGE: Homer has joined Woody at the hospital with chronic abdominal pain, after having gotten ahold of Team Greens enormous pile of cheese.




And BTW, the real expectancy of the system was somewhere between the Rat and the Computer !

You are really mean.

This thread was about a dog, and you did not even let it participate in your competition. We all know that dogs cannot trade, but it is a question of politeness to let Simba in to collect his bone or sausage.

What's wrong with a bit of arguing? As long as people are being civil and not turning the thread into a slugfest, I see no harm.

I have noticed an uptick in the censorship at futures.io (formerly BMT) lately, which is unfortunate.

This is off-topic. Stay on topic for the thread.

Guys,

I will not mention any names. But I do greatly and thankfully appreciate all the input that has proven a HUGE point and aspect about simplicity! Or I might say LACK of its presence.

We certainly do complicate things and by doing that, we lose pretty much of our edge in trading!

A wise guy once said:

"If truth was complicated, then everybody would understand it"!

We all struggle to make tomorrow look like yesterday!
Get rid of your past and let the future unfold from the now.
Past performance is not indicative of future results.
/George
