Welcome to futures io.

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.

Lightspeed (a division of Lime Brokerage) - Ask Me Anything

Jamie Leibfried (Relationship Manager) and Mark Frantz (Vice President - Futures), will be monitoring this thread so that he may answer any questions that you post here relating to Lightspeed's products and services.

Please keep in mind that some customer service/technical support issues are best handled through proper channels at Ironbeam, and not here in this thread.

Jamie Leibfried - Relationship Manager

Jamie joined Lime Brokerage in 2018 with over 11 years of experience in the brokerage industry. Jamie started in the industry working at efutures. There, she supported clients in the customer service capacity and trade desk responsibilities. She worked for various FCMs assisting the client services and funds management departments.

Mark Frantz - Vice President | Futures

Mark Frantz has been brought into Lightspeed, a division of Lime Brokerage, to help support and build out their futures offering after working in the futures industry for nearly 38 years. His career began as a runner for Merrill Lynch on the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade. He worked his way up to Vice president of Institutional sales, covering some of Merrill Lynch’s largest futures clients. The years after the floors largely went away saw him working for various futures related companies as well as a two-year stint with Terra Nova, an equity broker dealer. Most recently, Mark spent 10 years with the high volume, professional trader FCM, Advantage Futures. Mark holds the following licenses: Series 3, 7, 24, 55 and 63. When not spending time with his three children, Mark enjoys reading, playing guitar and at least once a year backpacking the mountains of Montana, Wyoming and California.

Hi guys,

It is my pleasure to welcome Joe Gits @ Social Market Analytics, sponsored by Lime Brokerage and Lightspeed, for our 380th webinar event on Thursday, April 9th @ 4:30 PM Eastern US.

The title for the event is "Social Media Predictive Data for Traders" and bullet points include:

- What social media sentiment can offer every investor
- Using predictive data while trading
- Social Market Analytics (SMA) patented social media framework
- How to use the SMA Dashboard on the Lightspeed Trader platform when trading stocks and options
- How to use the SMA Dashboard on Lightspeed’s efutures (CQG) platform when trading futures

Social media is a powerful vehicle that may have the ability to impact the price performance of all securities and create possible investing opportunities. Social Market Analytics has taken the full Twitter firehose, captured the tone of the conversation, and baselined it against historical data to create statistically significant scores.

This analysis can be viewed by Lightspeed customers using widgets that provide real-time metrics regarding the tone of the conversation and relative Tweet volume from influential accounts on Twitter. The SMA widgets will offer active traders a powerful tool for including social media sentiment data in their trading strategies.

We will cover the following topics:
- Patented social media framework
- What social media can offer every investor
- How to use the SMA Dashboard on Lightspeed Trader
--- Top 10 Sentiment
--- Bottom 10 Sentiment
--- Accurate Accounts Long Side
--- Accurate Accounts Short Side
--- Sentiment by Symbol
- How to use the SMA Dashboard on Lightspeed’s efutures (CQG) platform when trading futures
- And much more

Futures trading involves the substantial risk of loss and is not suitable for all investors. Each investor must consider whether this is a suitable investment since you may lose all of or more than your initial investment. Past performance is not indicative of future results.
