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 90,000 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.

I rent from a property manager/group called Regus, they are all over the world. I committed to a 1 year lease and got like 180 square feet for $400 a month, I have master blaster Comcast Business Class Internet that is an additional $96. The $400 includes all the coffee I can drink as well. Check in your area, I bet there is a Regus property there. I looked at other places in my area that offered even lower rates, but they were kinda' ghetto and offered poor security, one of them included free Comcast Internet.....that you shared w/ 20 people and at least the landlord was up-front about the fact it was NOT secure. I have a lot of dough invested in my stuff and didn't want to come in and find it gone. Besides, trading is no walk in the park; why not treat yourself to a nice office? So worth it! Oh yeah, I almost forgot: The high dollar Herman Miller furniture and commercial grade chair that has saved my back was included in the rent.

Thanks Rayzor, I might have guessed Regus, as I hear their commercials all the time. This is something I am going to consider for the future, thank you for the info!

This is a small office I rent in downtown - I used to trade from home but the office is good, it gets me out of my house and gives me some separation between work and play. Thanks for the thread.

I LOVE that message between the monitors. Class.

My desk. Two displays on the desk, one on the wall. Sorry for overexposure on monitors, not a whole lot of light coming into the room right now.

Still haven't gotten my office setup, but this is what I'm currently using. I have good speakers for music, guitars to pick up between trade decisions, and of course a handgun sitting on the printer.
