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.

Funding is not required. All that is needed to to create an account.

I never funded it, I use tradeking for live, use TOS paper trading for charting for almost 3 years. No problem, just create an account and choose paper trading.

Do I need to keep money on the account so I can use TOS for charts? I dont want use paper because I feel like there is delay.

I was told quite some time ago that I need 3k on account so I can use charts. Is it true?

For a normal individual account, 250 should be sufficient. They used to have minimums on entity accounts but have changed that as well.

If you can't afford to keep 200-500 parked in a 'savings' account, maybe best to not be trading.
