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 100,000 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.

IQFeed 6.1 beta

Received this today, wanted to share:

IQFeed 6.1 Open Beta period starts today!
We posted the IQFeed 6.1 beta to our public website today so all customers can participate and offer feedback.
We anticipate this release becoming the official version very soon. At the end of this email is the original 6.1
announcement we sent a few weeks ago (for reference) but we have also included a few bug fixes in the build we
just posted so make sure you update if you were using the previous build.

Also, keep an eye on your inbox for info on the next version of IQFeed (6.2). This version will include an updated depth
protocol enabling Futures Market By Order which will be coming soon after the release of 6.1! We will be recruiting API
customers (like yourself) to help test a special alpha version on our pre-production servers and your feedback will
be crucial to making sure the new depth protocol is what you need from us to help make your products better! If you already
know you want to be a part of this, please reply to this email letting us know and we will put you on the list to get
instructions when the time comes.

Original announcement below:

This release brings some long awaited features to IQFeed. These new features are now available in protocol 6.1 of IQFeed.
Every attempt has been made to keep older protocols 100% backwards compatible so you should be safe to upgrade your
IQFeed client to this new version without breaking your existing software and migrate your code to the new protocol as need dictates.
• New Market Summary File Lookup! (more about this below)
• Level1 update/summary messages now include the Trade Aggressor (limited exchanges) and Trade Day Code (all exchanges) fields.
• Level1 fundamental messages now include Base Currency, Contract Size, Contract Months, Minimum Tick Size,
First Delivery Date, Open Time, Close Time, FIGI, and Security Subtype.
• Historical Tick data requests also now include Trade Aggressor.
• There is now an visual alert to customers while on trial that tells them when the trial expires.
• There is now a configurable visual alert for when level 1 data is queueing on the local machine waiting to be delivered to a client app.
• There is now a filter for non-standard options in the equity chains lookup.
• There is now a partial daily bar included for daily history requests for the current day's trading session.
• Historical data requests now strictly validate parameters.

Introducing the new Market Summary File Lookup!
Our new market summary file lookup offers a snapshot of the entire market every 5 minutes throughout the trading day!

Deliverable by exchange and security type, these lookups contain data for every symbol we carry streamed to you over the lookup port in IQFeed. At the end of the day, they are archived for historical EOD retrieval. Additionally, via these
lookups you will be able to retrieve archived fundamental data. Data has been backfilled for this new product offering
back through May 20th, 2018. This capability will be offered as a premium service, but it is available free of charge
during beta testing in order for you to test. In addition, if you have commercial software that will take advantage
of this data, be sure to let us know that you support this feature before we go live so we can help promote your software upon release of IQFeed 6.1.

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.
