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.

....Dell U2412M's....

I use four of these, still current models on Dell's site, fantastic monitors - go to TFT central and find the calibrated settings for best viewing performance, you'll then find they run cooler

.....physically relocated my PC to an adjacent room's closet, and just knocked out a small hole in the wall to run the DisplayPort monitor cables, audio cable, and USB cable (connected to a USB hub on my desk). This eliminates heat from the PC, but also makes my office silent.

Water cooling (not closed loop) worked to remove noise, but it's also the case, internal layout, etc, etc

Thank you. I bought it at a Danish furniture store in Copenhagen for about 10 years ago. It's made of solid oak so it's really heavy.

1S2K4MES.iGoStation...

What the big difference between iLoveStation from last year to iGoStation this year?
Just the price tag and the size of the screen; no big difference other than adjusting to trading the CME next BIG thing,
plus creating and getting use to the new NinjaTrader8 Workspace with less Charts, less Indicators.

Most important is to have:
1Shot2Kill Strategy, iGetIt Model, and Swing2Go AttackPlan aka ALL in ONE Actionable Journal-ling in "Dial M for Murder tradingMicro.MES"

$2375
Digital Tigers UltraView Mini 49C[/U] Quad-core Mini Desktop System with Samsung 49" 4K UHD Curved Display
(workspace equivalent to 4x24.5" FDH 1080p monitors in 2x2 array)
Intel Core i7
SSD 250 GB
RAM 32GB

$699
Dell Inspiron 13.3" 5000 Series
Duo 2 in 1 Touchscreen Laptop
Intel Core i7
SSD 256 GB
RAM 8GB
Extended Display to 26" VIZIO TV Monitor


Find the missing piece of the puzzle... Let's be amazing, be awesome in trading today!

If I dont get a proper diversion in life I dont get any profits ....Kitesurfing.

my laptop is connected to my office 6 monitor workstations through teamviewer, dont expect you are interested in another multimonitor pic, thats not much surprising.

enjoy your life guys!

My Office Desk in January 2019

This was my trading Desk in Jan 2019.
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).



But...
The office space I was using (from a client) has been downsized and so did I.

I found I did not need all the stuff I had on the screen(s).

I now trade on my Surface Book 2.
The charts on it look similar to the ones on the laptop in the lower right of this picture.
(duplicated on the monitor next to it)

I wanted to post a picture of me at my desk with a huge 'green screen' background where an image of NYC was in the background of my corner office in the Freedom Tower.

But in reality, I trade from my Surface Book 2 on a desk (literally in a closet) next to the break room in a client's facility.
The nice thing about being in a closet, you can close the door and no one knows you are there and interrupt you.

Rejoice in the Thunderstorms of Life . . .
Knowing it's not about Clouds or Wind. . .
But Learning to Dance in the Rain ! ! !
