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.

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 donít need to worry about fake reviews.

  • 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.

Live SPX on your desktop

The code below runs using AutoIt (compiled exe is also attached). It shows SPX value in semi-transparent layer near system tray clock (bottom right). Great tool if you work full-time and trade for fun.

Next version will have price level alerts too :-)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Opt("TrayAutoPause", 0)

; User default proxy

#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=C:\PortableApps\koda_1.7.3.0\Forms\GF.kxf
$Form1 = GUICreate("SPX", 108, 26, @DesktopWidth - 132, @DesktopHeight - 52, $WS_POPUPWINDOW, BitOR($WS_EX_TOPMOST, $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW))
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("0,000.00", 2, 2, 116, 22)
GUICtrlSetFont($Label1, 16, 800, 0, "Courier New")
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

WinSetTrans("SPX", "", 160)

DirCreate(@TempDir & "\gf\")
$fName = @TempDir & "\gf\" & @AutoItPID & ".json"

$q = ".INX"

While @HOUR * 100 + @MIN >= 930 AND @HOUR * 100 + @MIN <= 1600
    ; pull SPX data every 15 seconds
    InetGet("" & $q, $fName, 1, 1)
    $json = FileRead($fName)
    $array = StringRegExp($json, '"l_cur" : "(.*)"', 3)
    GUICtrlSetData($Label1, $array[0])
