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 Ė 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 donít 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.

Finding your edge!

This is my last post as a moderator on this forum!
If I'm going to continue writing or not I really don't know. I started on this journey before the birth of this forum.

Somehow, and maybe in the same way you guys did, I managed to find my way to Mike's blogg. I commented in one of his posts and told him about the camel analogy.

Me myself, including a couple of the moderators that are left from the start, was asked by Mike to join him as moderators in his new forum! I accepted. The rest is history!

Mike has had a nice utopia about the basic idea of the forum. Traders helping traders. And believe me I've done more than my piece of share on this topic. I've tried to share a piece of me, with a very high focus on the why of things. And I've always had in the back of my mind, that what I know and discovered has helped me and it might help other people as well.

All the job I've done I've been doing it for free. It is a new human (internet) phenomenon to do things for free. But that still has to include one's free will!

According to the frames that are set up in the forum, I've not done such a good job because of my lack of activity and threads moderated. I do agree with those frames to a certain degree, and yes I admit that I've been maybe more passive than active.

But anyway, that is between me and the frames of the forum. I just want to tell you guys (the readers in my section, and those that has shown me respect and appreciation) that I'm very grateful and thankful, for all the appreciation that you have shown me, and that I really hope that my posts have manage to raise a couple of dots over your own i's.

Finally, I would like to ask you to remember, that it is all indeed about yourselves, but it is also about finding yourselves a system and an edge that fits you, that you can learn to trust. And that, you can call your vehicle.

Find your vehicles, and learn how to manage those. It is all about the driver, but a driver needs a vehicle as well. But do remember that in order to drive it right, you have to know it and you have to trust it!

Good luck with your trading
and personal growth!

See you around...

We all struggle to make tomorrow look like yesterday!
Get rid of your past and let the future unfold from the now.
Past performance is not indicative of future results.

@George,

Good times! Good memories! And they don't have to end, not unless you want!

You've always written "quality" posts over "quantity" posts like we had discussed, so as you know the decision regarding "Moderator" status was solely based on activity and not based on anything to do with your posts or posting style, which I believe everyone can agree has been a great asset to the forum and has helped many people.

So, I want to once again thank you for all the posts you've made, from back on the blog days all the way to today, and I encourage you to stay here and keep posting so you can continue to help others. I also believe that helping others helps yourself

Hope to see you around,

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)
