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 – 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.

Here is the new version, as I made (unplanned) changes to the journal tab, please use the migration guide for versions BEFORE 2.0

Added conditional formatting based on tick size.
Added dropdown for long/short.

something keeps messing up when either i change the instrument and method lists, or when im clearing the journal content because the time keeps getting all jacked up..

is this what that column should be formatted to?

also is there a way to get it to calculate exactly to the penny instead of rounding in the prices? i think it might be happening with the commissions or something, but cant track it down..

as an entry: 7 ticks x 12.5 tick value = 87.5 - 5.07commission = 82.43 total.. the sheet says 82

Time seems right (It's MIL time so 6:30am is 0600 and 5:20pm is1720) just enter the string of hours and minutes.

Prices are not rounded, they are only displayed that way to make it a bit easier on the eyes....you can change the format if you want to... (have a look at net profit on overview tab)

Yes and no.
Yes it makes you unprotect as these cells are locked.
No, they shouldn't be, I changed it so in the next version it is corrected....

Thanks very much for your help! Impossible for me to find all those problems on my own.
I really appreciate it!
