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.

I wouldnt share the Holy grail either. It doesnt work if too many use it.

It doesn't work if too many use it "AS THE SYSTEM WAS DESIGNED TO BE USED".

From what I have seen of traders.... 99% of them will alter the system to suit themselves, declare that it doesn't really work and move on to something else.

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

lol, yup - exactly, which goes hand-in-hand with FatTails comment above.

i think we have a workable business model, gentlemen. now let's get to work, immediately. cut ALL development budgets by 80% and redirect all those moneys towards marketing, advertising, testimonials, and wardrobe for the guru.

cheers,

Two, wow That is like the guy who had 9 winning trades and declared himself "successful" now at trading.



Why not put it on C2, charge $1000-2000 a month and cap it at say 100 extra contracts so it won't distort your method while also bringing in an extra 100k a month...

Mike

Haha funny.

Ok, do what I did, say before that on a certain day *you say what day* you will only make 2 trades and say that those trades will be 100% winners. Then do it live, announce the trades before they will happen on skype like I did, and then do the trades. And then make sure that these trades were 100% winners.

Sure, Bigmike, go ahead, be my guest. I haven't seen that from you. Well you have seen it from me, you can't ignore that right ?

Trying to say that I only did 2 trades in a long period and nothing else or that I was just lucky or that I'm not profitable makes you look what ? Jealous ?

Impressive... but, I think trading is hard enough already without the added pressure of a challenge

Metal you can't be serious. You are proclaiming you have found the holy grail, and are offering as proof that you called 2 winning trades.

I am not claiming I have found the holy grail, because I know better. There is no perfect "system". There is no perfect "method". The closest thing is experience which will allow you to adapt.

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.
