Welcome to futures io.

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. To succeed, you need to surround yourself with the right support system, educational content, and trading mentors – 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 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.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community.  It's free and simple.

TecDAX Downtrend; third up day.
Dow Jones Downtrend; fourth up day.

DAX Downtrend; fifth up day. No position was opened.
TecDAX Change back to uptrend; up day.
Dow Jones Downtrend; fifth up day.
S&P 500 Downtrend; fifth up day. Change to uptrend at 1435. Short(ab) STP 1391 LMT 1388; SL(ab) 1405; TP(a) 1360.
Nasdaq 100 Downtrend; fourth up day.
SMI Downtrend; fourth up day. Short(ab) STP 6673 LMT 6670; SL(ab) 6725; TP(a) 6550.
All Ordinaries Downtrend; inside day.
There are more signals than just the S&P and the SMI, but two shorts at a time are enough.

INTC short Small up bar. The 38% retracement of the recent down swing lies at 20.50, and the 50% retracement at 20.89, which is about the target I expect for the rebound. SL(b) 21.71.
ETFC short No entry, yet. Setup is still good. Short(ab) STP 8.01 LMT 7.97; SL(ab) 8.22; TP(a) 7.60.
DTV short Swingtrader’s dream: price has retraced 50% of the last swing back to longer-term resistance (April 2012) at a round number ($50) on declining volume, and failed at the fourth touch of a down trendline. Short(ab) STP 49.35 LMT 49.25; STP(ab) 49.96; TP(a) 48.18.
