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 100,000 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.

Hey everyone! Below is my humble trading desk, that I hope to convert to a standing desk in the near future. I thought about cleaning it up, but it is in fact this messy most of the time lol. Please forgive my ugly mug blocking the pretty charts. BTW this is my wife's least favorite part of the house, so here's to you guys fighting for your own private real estate!

Rule number one in the markets is to never lose money. Well since that isn't realistic, I say if you're going to lose some money anyway then lose small, but when you win, give it all you've got and win big!

My apologies for being slightly tardy with tabulating the results -- most of you know of my recent surgery, which has been time consuming to say the least.

First, let me thank Stage 5 Trading again for providing these prizes:

Please visit Stage 5:
https://stage5trading.com

We will be giving away $500 in Amazon Gift Cards for this event, plus $447 in autographed trading books, split into (3) as follows: 1st place $250 Amazon Gift Card + autographed copy of the Global Macro Edge, 2nd place $150 Amazon Gift Card + autographed copy of the Global Macro Edge, 3rd place $100 Amazon Gift Card + autographed copy of the Global Macro Edge.

The details on the autographed book "Global Macro Edge – Maximizing Return Per Unit of Risk", written by John Netto (a $149 value), can be found here:
https://theproteantrader.com/products/the-global-macro-edge-maximizing-return-per-unit-of-risk

The winners are as follows:

#1 @RDK91 for a $250 Amazon Gift Card, plus autographed book
#2 @00cedge for a $150 Amazon Gift Card, plus autographed book
#3 @miskhr for a $100 Amazon Gift Card, plus autographed book

These are excellent prizes, for excellent contributions by the members of our community. Thank you to all the members who have chosen to become Elite Members to show their support, as always.

I will be in touch shortly to arrange/coordinate the prizes.

Thanks,
Mike

Hi guys,

Just to follow-up, all info has been shared with Stage 5 so they can get the prizes to the winners, as of now. I am sure they will work on it quickly.

We will hold a new Battlestations event in January.

Nice. I think there were some pretty cool Custom Rigs for Flight Simulators in @tturner86's X-Plane / MSFlight Sim Thread

Hi guys,

It is my pleasure to announce a new challenge event for January 2019: Battlestations! (with $750 in prizes)

With this event, we are encouraging members to share pictures of their trading desks. We will be giving away $350 in Amazon Gift Cards for this event, plus $400 in commission free trades*, split into (3) as follows: 1st place $400 value [$150 Amazon Gift Card + $250 commission free trades*], 2nd place $250 value [$100 Amazon Gift Card + $150 commission free trades*], 3rd place $100 Amazon Gift Card.

These prizes are provided exclusively by GFF Brokers, a site sponsor on futures io. Please thank GFF Brokers for their contributions to our community, and for agreeing to exclusively sponsor the January Battlestations event!

There are just a few simple rules to follow:
  • a) The contest begins January 1 and ends January 31. All decisions made by futures io are final.
  • b) One of the photos in your post must show the futures io logo on our website. Don't forget!
  • c) Take a selfie or have someone take a picture of you at your desk! For at least one of the photos, we want to see your face! We are making this optional but highly recommended.
  • d) The photos need to be uploaded here on futures io. No linking to external sites. No videos.
  • e) You may submit multiple photos (please do!) -- but only your first post in this thread, containing photos, posted between January 1 and January 31, and following our rules, will be considered for the contest.
  • f) Winners will be chosen by counting the numbers of "Thanks Received" on each qualifying post.

I am looking forward to seeing a lot of great trading desks! Please remember to follow the rules, and please remember to vote by hitting the "Thanks" button.
