Welcome to futures io.

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.

"It's not a loss until you take it."

That explains how you can have bankrupt traders who never had a loss.

It is hard to find the Truth when you start your search with a preconceived notion of what the Truth will be.

Your trading history is like a blood test. It provides solid evidence of what you are doing right and wrong.

If a trader does not understand what happens to him psychologically while in a trade, he is doomed to lose until he does or he runs out of money.

strong opinions, weakly held

I follow Peter Brandt on twitter, and have come to know his mantra to trading: strong opinions, weakly held.

Today's CL is a good example. I had a strong bias that CL is going to pop and reverse, and kept selling into rally. That bias prevented me from adapting to the market reality, noting the strong short term momentum, and seeing long opportunity, not short. Of course, CL reversed in the afternoon, but the damage was already done.

Yes you need conviction in your belief, but you also need agility to survive the ever changing market.
