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.

Beta release

Thanks to @cory again!
I found the brakes, it was the way I wrote output to the cells:

instead of this method:

 
Code
Range("$N$2").Offset(iTerations - 1, 0).Value = myval
I now use this:

 
Code
Range(.Cells(2, 14), .Cells(10000 + 1, 14)) = myvariant
and now it's a f*****g race horse.
500 iterations with 1000 trades each take about 10 seconds on my machine.

You can chose now how many iterations of how many trades you want to run.
You can also chose to perform the simulation with fixed position sizing or with fixed fractional position sizing (money management).

Attached is the beta to play around with (@madLyfe hint, hint ) (Excel 2007 & up only).

As soon as we have some confidence and the glitches are out, I am happy to call it a final....

OK, the compile error is easily fixed, but the link.... I hate links!
Have you got any idea of where the link is and where it points to?
