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.

Would depend what algo you are trying to train but consider instead of using RSI maybe use (Is RSI < 20) as a binary input. While I can't claim to have great results my results did seem to improve when I did things like that.

I am sure that works(especially given the last decades data) because it is basically a large % drop over a short period of time feature.

You could just calculate that directly though as a feature. A rolling 2 week window with a certain threshold -% return as a binary input. No one would call that a technical indicator though. It is just feature engineering from the data.

I already got bored with the astronomy class lol. Just not worth studying over De Prado's book.

I only used RSI as an example. You can obviously make your features anything you want. (C > 200MA, Inside Day, New 20 Day High etc). I should have made the point that sometimes binary feature like that can be more successful than continuous ones as the continuous can involve so much noise.
