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.

FR5050, I have some special deals to announce as part of our 1-year anniversary coming up in June. I'll be sharing more details in the coming weeks. We'll start with that, and then go from there.

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.

Did anything come of FR5050's idea for a futures.io (formerly BMT) member's rate at Mirus?

Not that I know of, except for the prizes given away. Best to contact Mirus and let then know you are coming from futures.io (formerly BMT) and want their best rate.

Please follow up after in this thread.

Wow, that was a fast response! Thanks.

I'm already at Mirus, and saw this thread, so was hoping for some good news. I'm paying $4.40 RT on ES, and was hoping to get sub $4. Do just 100 turns a month, and it really adds up!

My gut tells me Mirus does not offer special pricing. But I could be wrong. They do offer tiers, so you should inquire about that, but unless you are doing a lot more trades it probably won't make a difference.

If you are happy where you are, you should probably stay.

AMP is now an FCM so they are at an advantage now imo over Mirus (AMP Global Clearing). I like trading through FCM's for the most part even though I have many accounts at various brokers.

Have they become a clearing FCM or a non-clearing FCM?
A clearing FCM would give them an advantage.

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

This is a good move on their behalf! BUT, this does not mean they are exchange members.
I assume (and I could be wrong) that they still have to go through an FCM that has seats on the exchange.
As a non clearing FCM they could still attract other IB's, get interest on the funds, etc
But, on the admin side, they would need to develop a very strong back office for, etc.
on the home page of their FCM, there is one platform, so I guess Ninja helped a little LOL

Never the less, this means growth, and I am happy for them. They are definitely making the right moves!
