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.

---MON ---
>>DAYTRADE:
1. GC long my own trade +350
2. ES bot short (-250)
3. YI long my own trade (-200)
>>SWING: Hold YM, S, YG

---TUE ---
>>DAYTRADE:
1. GC +500
>>SWING:
1. Long YI
2. Hold YG, YM, S

---WED ---
>>DAYTRADE:
1. GC my own trades -3000. Very disappointed in my behavior. 2 big short signals and didnít take them. Failure to adapt with the market. Going to focus now on more bots to replace my bad behavior.
>>SWING:
1. Long RB my own entry. Got back in the bot trade.
2. Manually closed YI and YG at break even
3. Manually closed YM +900, then got back in same price
4. Long YG my own trade. +900. Daytrade but it meets the overnight rules as I bought the US close and sold during the asian session.


---THU ---
>> My own trades:
1. Long CL +1000
2. Short GC +350
>> Bot trades
1. Holding: RB, YM, S


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FEBRUARY - live trades, trading bot and my own
Profit factor 1.19 down from 1.31
Avg Profit per trade $20 down from $39
Max consecutive losses 10 up from 9
Maxx DD $5,557 up from $3,300
February behavior had more consistent periods of self control. However, a few days of falling apart ruins a trading plan. Extremely important once again.
*Recurrent emotional breakdown is lowering performance results.
*Count consecutive losses as they DO reveal my mental fitness
* Stay focused on that higher time frame.
