futures io is the largest futures trading community on the planet, with over 100,000 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.

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 don’t 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.

@WoodyFox I'm not familiar with the strategy, but that looks like its over 3 std dev to me. its outside of the distribution's range.

I use a tool that's a cousin to it, measured moves inside and outside of yesterday's range. Its also a cousin to one of the pivot points tools, because the +/-150% are exactly correlated. I can't take the heat like you do though, so I'll give up at 25% of yesterday's range. 12.5% in bigger ranges like we've had recently.
