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.

Wow, didn't realize I was going to make some people mad. I was excited because I wanted to learn more about futures. My class was about to start earlier this week and then PFG went under. Then I found out that the instructors are going to teach for free and I couldn't believe it. So I wanted to share that side of the story. Shoot, I was also excited because I thought for the first time since joining last November that I finally had something interesting to post!

I should have been more sensitive to those that lost money. I didn't think about that when I posted my story. However, in case my membership is in jeopardy, I can provide proof of my story.

Don't be discouraged and don't take it personally. You were sharing a good thing. Everyone is dealing
with this in their own personal way and some handle it better than others. I've been scammed many times too
and I have learned from it. Just wish I knew all the possible "angles" to avoid, but that isn't possible.

I'm sure there are others who are just starting out and appreciate knowing that there are still resources
available to them. This forum is a great place to share and learn, and there are many resources and people
right here at futures.io (formerly BMT) who are always willing to help you.

As I said, don't be discouraged. I didn't see anything wrong with your post and I can't imagine why
you would feel your membership would be in jeopardy. You were not attacking anyone and it wasn't
negative in anyway....I thought you were just sharing your experience.

You did nothing wrong, thanks for sharing.

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.

just found out that https://www.traderspress.com/index.php was also an outfit belonging to PFG
no doubt that they were bought out at some point by them because these guys have been around for 35 years

This guy had his hands in every cookie jar?

PM with any questions about optimusfutures (800) 771-6748 (561) 367 8686. THERE IS A SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS IN FUTURES TRADING.

Think of him as a narcissistic, sociopathic "Typhoid Mary" infecting everyone he came in contact with.

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

Traders press was the publisher of SFO magazine and a number of other books sold on PGF bookstore shelves, including Woodies' CCI book, The Revolutionary thing.... You can not buy that book any more, so hang on to the one you already have. Who knows, it may become a best seller and as valuable as a Charles Dickens' original manuscript suitable for Smithsonian.

Yes, to me it always becomes mind twisting when thinking of people in suits perceiving themselves as some kind of "über mensch" and at the same time doing the most primitive things. No matter how hard I try, I never can get "über" to fit with "primitive".
