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.

I use a little laptop and Skype seem to be a bit of a pig now that Microsoft owns it.
There is also a free program called teamviewer which is less resource intensive
Perhaps you can download it and try it

We can share voice and invite others.

What you you think would be good formats for online meetings?

Work together and help solve someone's trading prb?
Each meeting someone presents his system and we open it to Q&A?
Discuss ideas for specific questions?
  • determining the trend of the day?
  • determining stop levels re S/R points?
  • distinguishing between retracements and CIT (change in trends)
trading psychology?

What do you think?

Try using a low impact application that would allow Skype capability. Voice rooms usually have issues with someone or many whom just find it difficult to only say something when it is relevant to trading. Many friendships can be formed around fishing, sports, politics but it takes the focus from trading. Often it is trying to get a word in edge wise about entering a trade if the conversation has gotten out of control. Think about using just the text capability rather than voice.

A valuable trading room would allow a member to text their intention to enter a trade and have it reviewed (quickly) by others to see if it sounds logical. Quickly because day traders usually want to pull the trigger immediately upon seeing an entry. So birds of a feather following the same group of instruments is critical. (formerly BMT) has had others attempt to set up trading rooms. Not sure any are still active. Issues can be lack of active participants, novices trying to use it as a training room, verbose conversationalists...

Please count me in if you give it a go. I primarily trade 6E and ES during the U.S. Regular Trading Hours (RTH.)

Hi Jmont,

My post was a reply to Bill D's and his request for a meetup via the internet with San Diego being too far to travel to get to North Van, BC but interested in a meetup with voice but Skype having limitations.

This thread isn't about trading rooms - it is for a meetup of traders each fortnight.

(Personally I have no interest in trading rooms. I have been to them before and find them distracting and the typing is slow (for me) and cumbersome - best of luck organizing a daytrading room for your needs. It should organize it in a separate thread ).

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.
