Welcome to futures io.

futures io is the largest futures trading community on the planet, with over 90,000 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.

There is another thread about this too, but I can't find it at the moment.

Here is a pic of my desk.

Anybody have any experience with sit/stand adjustable desks?

GeekDesk® Adjustable Height Desks - GeekDesk Max

Thinking about picking one of these up, seem to be pretty well priced, but I'll save some cash by buying the frame only and making a top myself.

@addchild

That's a fancy one.







This one is manually adjusted ( hand crank ) but half the price.

Depends on what you want, I guess.

Ahh, a woman who knows her place in way around a kitchen is a woman who knows how to please a man. Good times. What I just said is unarguably absolute truth, though some delusional folks out there may think it sounds sexist.

Nice chair. I considered them a couple times, but just couldn't talk myself into spending that kind of money on a chair.

Nice desk too, I wish I had a desk that deep. We learn from our mistakes

Mike

I had Aerons back in 1998-2001 when I worked at buy.com and various spinoffs from there, they are really nice chairs, but I wish they had higher backs for better neck support.

For those who cannot keep their heads up?

I have posted mine before but here is a slightly arty shot for the thread. Like Mike, I have my dog by my side when trading and she is trained to identify trends :P

Mac mini is for surfing when I don't need the beast turned on or for downloading my favourite tv shows while I'm in bed.

Had the same monitor setup for a while and the computer specs are below. Bought it mid last year and designed it to last 3-5 years depending on what technology does.

i7-2600k overclocked to 4.4ghz
Asus P8z68-v Pro
Asus 6950 2Gb
16Gig 2133 Ram
Many hard drives
Silverstone FT02 USB3
TV tuner card
Logitech Dinovo for Notebooks (Unlike the current trend of clicky keyboards I like notebook slim line ones)
Logitech Performance MX mouse.

The notebook, pen and ruler are my old fashion Trading Journal tools. I have tried many different trading log tools but I haven't found anything that beats it.
