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.

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.

Just watched FT71's webinar.....excellent presentation. I learned a great deal about the mental side of trading. I highly recommend it to everyone....

I especially liked the fighter pilot analogy about how a fighter pilot doesn't pull up his manuals during a dogfight to figure out what kind of weapon he should use or what maneuver he needs to make. He just makes them.....its like a trader constantly pulling up different charts trying to figure out which time frame or set of indicators to trade....Just be an expert in your time frame and make decisions based on experience and probabilities.

Secondly, even though you have a high over all winning percentage, the NEXT trade is 50/50. Accept it and move on. Control risk with size....and if you can only trade one lot and the risk is to big, don't trade. Its that easy.

Third, think about what has happened, what is happening and what MIGHT happen. Plan for it.


Would you mind tossing a man a few links to his stuff so I won't forget to watch it ?

Chart was speaking to me a bit better today. Still hung up on a couple of things....nevertheless, it was a good day....


My first loser was a signal that I thought I should take but it was straight into a buy zone, so I took it but bailed almost immediately.

The second loser was a buy slightly higher than where I thought I should buy but couldn't bring myself to pull the trigger in that zone. Once I did pull the trigger, I thought we could possible retest that buy zone area and I did not want to hold a trade through that....So I bailed, and then once the buy zone was not retested, I had more confidence to take the long....

Third loser was just stupid, I had a good signal, the risk was larger than I wanted but I took it anyway, to reduce risk, I brought the stop up based on a swing from the 1M chart and just as Al Brooks said, I got taken out to the tick and the trade went to my target. I did not chase it though, thats even worse than moving the stop early.

Last trade was a winner I had been waiting for all through the chop...unfortunately, it only went 25 ticks and I locked in eleven.

Ended the day with +54

At the risk of being redundant (some would consider redundancy an improvement for me) - here is the link of all ft71's webinars (most are free):
