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 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.

hi! F16
This morning, i went short at 80.50 and i got out at 77.5 before the news. I would have stayed in but creeker didn't trust the news.
Next I went long at 75 well after the news andgot out at 79.00 when the trend line broke.
There was a break in the trend and I wanted to get out but creeker said to stay in...something about the a&d chart and how it looked.
We are taking a break now till after the news.
