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.

The IIe came out probably five years after the TRS-80, I was in jr high by then... had a VIC20, C64, an elusive C128... tape drives and big floppies man, still have all that shit in a box somewhere lol. BBSes and dialup modems, 300 baud was de facto in the day, 1200 baud was pretty good and you were hot shit if you had a 2400 baud modem LOL... aah the good old days man

Love the Cougar! My folks had a green one just like that, with the sequential taillights and everything. Great stuff!

Yeah, you're right. The TRS-80 came out in 77, while the Apple IIe appeared in 83. 83 was way too late in the game so I must have had the Apple II Plus, which came out in 79. Probably sold it for the Cougar in 81 which was around 10th grade. The sequential tail lights were killer!

Long story short, ten years after I sold the Cougar, I got a knock on the door from the police. They wanted to ask me about it. It had been involved in a fatal crash. Yikes!!!

My Battlestation. Currently showing Pivot Levels:

p.s. -- rotary phone to call broker not in view.

Thanks for the flashback! Rotary phone modem, not shown, sold separately. My dad has an original TRS-80 Model I, back before they added the numeric 10-key to the keyboard.

My first PC was a TRS-80 Model 4D (graduation gift). Learned how to hack assembly code on it. My first modem was 300 baud (~0.000000558793544769287109375 or 5.5879e-7 Gbps for those too young to know what baud means). I loved that keyboard. Never traded on it, though.

For what it's worth, 30 years ago futures.io would be: Futures BBS (formerly known as BMT BBS).

So here is my battlestation entry for best nomadic set up

Since January 2017 we have pretty much been living a nomadic lifestyle.

We started in Japan, Portugal (May '17 which is when I started my trading journey), Italy, then home briefly (Isle of Wight, UK).
Then on to Thailand, Vietnam and now we are back in Thailand for the next 11 months or so.

Very nice set-up.

You pack everything in a rucksack?

What are those stands you use for your Asus screens?

I might be interested in 'adopting' your set-up. I have one Asus screen already.

Yeh all in one backpack.
I use this one.

https://www.everki.com/us_en/beacon-laptop-backpack-w-gaming-console-sleeve-up-to-18-inch.html

I use these style tablet stands for the screens

https://www.amazon.com/Tablet-Stand-Adjustable-Lamicall-Reader/dp/B01DBV1OKY/

It's a great set up. Bag is pretty heavy when loaded so you need that build quality that Everki provides.

Good luck with your set up.

Excellent. Thanks a lot!

How do you find it trading from such 'small screens'? Is it merely a matter of habit?

I'm used to 2 x 22" now + my laptop. Hopefully, I can adjust.
