futures io is the largest futures trading community on the planet, with over 90,000 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.

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 would be a good experience for the 15 y.o. to keep his journal here at futures.io (formerly BMT) and document the rules. Lurkers might be enlightened.

today i have decided to pressure test trader 15 -i want him to react instead of think about what he will do -he will be told the entry and stops with no target zone -will most likely update the journal on a 1 to 1.5 hour basis so i can keep focus on trader 15 - so all calls will most likely be played out when posted -however the blotter will be posted for the 19th tommorrow -and any readers will be able to line up the trades in there time slots-good luck today

there will not be any trades today for trader 15 -due to his nervious tension - he was clearing his throat over and over -and when we closed out his trading screen it stopped nearly instantly -so we will see what 6/20 brings -this is a little tougher than i had thought
