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.

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 would be: Futures BBS (formerly known as BMT BBS).



My TRS-80 Model 1 is still in the attic. I used to help a friend out with his giant 100 node [!!] BBS Back in the day too.

I don't think E-minis were even around back then...

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.

Yeh I don't feel any restrictions from it.

You'll adjust in no time.

Best of luck with your trading.

I might be hitting the road myself soon, but I'll try to take that in another thread. Please watch out for that one if you have any advice you'd want to share on that.

Or when you have just spent hours downloading a file which finally reaches 90% .... and someone picks up the phone.
