Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • 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, and we will never resell your private information.

-- Big Mike

I use FIOS ... speeds are 84 Upload/39 Download ... Internet/Cable/3 Phone lines runs $140+/month. On a related topic, I recommend having a redundancy plan, in the event you lose power.

Live out in the stix of Wi. Only option is satellite or get an office in town that has decent internet. D- 4.9, U- .97 for satellite.

Had a problem running Ninja on satellite and found that Trade Navigator works great with the speeds/sat. No problems day trading but prefer longer trading time frames. Can now analyze radar charts to know when the sat will go out. Other than that pretty consistent. Have a VSP/colocated server just in case should loose something day trading and for position trading. $140 a month for satellite.

My expectancy is much better position trading than day trading. Almost to the point of where wind up (dial up) would still work for me if not day trading.

Residential cable package for tv, telephone, and internet. I predominantly run vol arb strategies that do not require low latency connectivity.

I live in a downtown high-rise that has a microwave antenna for internet. On a clear day and when nobody else is downloading I have seen it get as high as 300mbps down 350mbps up. Like Mike says this means nothing much for trading. I was just happy to dump Comcast! Oh and its only $40 a month if you pay the year in advance. Competition my friends.

I currently have 85/85 from FIOS with 7ms ping. I have access to better plans but it won't do much of anything for my ping so it seems to be a waste considering I'm not moving massive amounts of information back and fourth.

If you need help determining your internet speed, you can use this website:

Speedtest.net by Ookla - The Global Broadband Speed Test

@Big Mike

Stupid question, I want to make a Ping Test to an Chicago Server, but on the Speedtest.net site there are 6 different servers and every server gives me a hole different result.
Which result is now the right one?

They are all in Chicago and all are right .
The routes to all of them should be quite similar, the results should also be quite close.

@sam028

No, there are a big difference's between them, 50ms - 190ms.

But now when I thinking about it, I don't need to check it to an Chicago server I need to check it to the Interactive Brokers server, how can I do that???
