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 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.

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.

75% of the screens are redundant as they display the same information.

Many office chairs will break down under a weight of 500 lbls, but this one also seems to fit the size of senior screen traders.

My trading space ...

... has been updated.

A few months ago, my youngest daughter got an apartment with her BFF so Project: Trading Station Relocation started percolating. However, as I learned from my first daughter's attempts to 'move-out', I opted to let the empty room simmer for a few months. Now that I've pretty well got it up to snuff, I'm expecting any day to hear she is coming home

Anyway, here's where I do my thing:

And my most favoritest pen I've ever used:

The pens come in tons of colors too. Got my entire family addicted to these pens.

Edit: Btw, that is after-sun moisturizer serving as a book end. Not that anyone might think it was anything else, but just in case

Tell her if she moves back she'll have to learn to trade forex. Kids today are up all hours texting anyway!

Shameless plug for my office... we probably spent more on Aeron chairs than on our monitors.

Want! I have my eye on one but can't decide whether to spring for a fully loaded polished one or just go black with posture fit.
