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 100,000 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 – 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 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.

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.

This is not an "idea". This is an insane one-sided conversation that took over the forum combined with lunacy and arrogance. You have members here that contributed time and effort (for years) while providing PRACTICAL ideas getting irritated and insulted by a member who is a theorist at best.
That is not fair to them, and the rest of the unregistered members who come to the site to learn.

Even so, without getting into the merits of the thread's contents, people still have a right to express their beliefs, no matter how far-fetched they may be, provided the forum's guidelines are followed.

If anyone feels their time is better spent elsewhere other than this thread there are tools available for that, such the ignore function, as well as the option not to visit the thread anymore.

I would expect that eventually you will want to know what the indicator is doing or how to modify it or the strategy.
Here is a helpful link with some links to resources on Futures.io.

If you can't access some or all of them it is probably because they are for Elite Members only.

If you can see them, they are worth the trip.

Guys...


Seeing how the forum is handling this, for the time being the site is something that I can't be associated with.

I'm logging off, similar to how Gary and others have logged off or abstained from the site. This type of dialogue being supported here is "of detriment" to the credibility and the reputation of the site.

When/if positive discernment returns, so will I.

All the best in trading and in life to each of you.

Be Well.

Part of what is so special about our community is the ability to remain cordial and helpful even when faced with things that are mind-boggling in their annoyance factor.

Your choice on what to do --- but you can ignore this thread instead of letting a rookie get under your skin.

And of course, you, or any member for that matter, are free to question the decision of whether or not I should have boosted the exposure of this thread by including it in our newsletter. "Hell is paved with good intentions."

It was my intention to raise awareness and thereby education to all the members who find themselves in similar situations as the OP, and even now I still standby that decision -- because I have faith that the majority of our members can see the thread for what it is, and I have always been a person and trader that believes you can learn what not to do from observing others -- not only from those that are successful.

Ask me again in 10 weeks and see if I change my mind lol

2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Mike...

That's not it.

If I am me, I disrespect your "rules" and that makes me worse than the bullshit here or the way it is being afforded a toehold of legitimacy.

Merlin wins. The forum gets this pure delusional bullshit and the cowards that shadow associate with it.

Carry on men.

Hi @MerlinWorld

I have created some ribbon indicators over time that are very similar to yours. I have used lots of different settings and have tested them extensively over time. If used right, they can produce very nice results. Not a million in 10 weeks, but enough to use exclusively for a trading system. The screenshot below shows one example "No particular settings". I have no intentions to do so, but I'm sure I could get mine to match yours with extreme accuracy. I'm sure I have tested through your settings at one point. Who knows right? One thing to remember when using any type of exotic bars (Any bar that is not time based), make sure your test results are true. With range bars, just changing the lookback period can change the results of any backtest. You can fix this by using a control point for your starting bar when backtesting. In search of the Holy Grail is part of the fun, although we all know its all relevant. The holy grail only exists in your own mind. Good luck to you in your hunt! I will follow your journey.
Woody.

Gary...

somehow had time for that.

BTW, he was the most beneficial member the forum ever had...a legit trading legend. He came here and shared info literally worth millions. Others on that level also seldom post. In that is a question, for which I have no answer.

The community has to choose, it is that simple.
