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.

first sketch

Here is the first sketch for the table heading:
red cells i think should be hidden/deleted as either unnecessary or privacy reasons
green cells should stay imho
grey cells some of them should go, very much open to debate.
obviously we will have to cook it down a bit...
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


we could also include a privacy setting where either all stats are hidden that could give any clue about account size or some stats, like cars/exit, risk% per trade would show....

furthermore I think of three options at the top:
1. show last day
2. show last week
3. show user selectable period (trade# min and max)

So what do you think? Please post your suggestions!! we need some participation here

Thanks, @Big Mike. Can I pm you the latest version with some sample data? How many trades do you need in there?

Just whatever you can manage, so everything is populated.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
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.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

After longish silence from my side (i was busy implementing things into the journal) I think I will be able to release a beta tomorrow....hopefully....
It will have a tool for easy screenshots of trades from the journal....so that they can be posted conveniently to the forum without showing any data that is regarded too private.

Hi vvhg,

I stopped updating this because it was too much work to modify it to suit my needs each time, and I was focused on other ways of analyzing my trades.

I just downloaded the latest version and it looks very impressive. For those who like or need to tinker, would it be possible for to set it up so that we could delete or add rows to the Journal without messing up all the calculations?

unless you get into the inner workings of it prolly wont be that easy.. vvhg knows for sure tho.. but you could make a feature request to be implemented..

dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see

¯\_(ツ)_/¯
