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!

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

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.
