futures io is the largest futures trading community on the planet, with over 100,000 members.

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 Ė 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 donít 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.

Quoting 
Either you have a system or you don't - period. A human being can observe 'out of the box' conditions and introduce changes to the rules, but unless there is a reason to make adjustments human beings are simply in the way when it comes to *executing clearly defined rules*.

If i may add my 2 cents. You seem to imply that price changes direction on a dime which is not the case as if it were then even automated BOTS could not develop an edge over the long term. The only reason why we can make money in the markets can be measured by evaluating the level of entropy we find in the system. If markets were as random as a roulette wheel then very few could make money over the long term if any. A level of supply will always be a level of supply and the same is true for a level of demand. You seem to imply these basic tenets are not valid anymore which is totally ridiculous.
