Welcome to futures io.

(If you already have an account, login at the top of the page)

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.

No longs for me. Holding shorts. It's personal choice. My man Willie song " Still Movin to me" is about 3.31 minutes. Another musician could have written same sone in 3 minutes etc. However, same song for 2 minutes will be awful just like longs around 94.50 area this morning.

Wow " No longs for me. Holding shorts. It's personal choice. My man Willie song " Still Movin to me" is about 3.31 minutes. Another musician could have written same sone in 3 minutes etc. However, same song for 2 minutes will be awful just like longs around 94.50 area this morning."

CL surprises all the time. Direction was clear. When and how the path will be travelled is beyond my skillset. Covered shorts around 92.


Trying to see if sellers are done and we are back to BOX trading/ rotation. Not sure yet. Small longs around 91.23 area. Dangerous area for longs if one is worried about traditional cute stop loss.

Out flat 91.32. There are no buyers. I will rather buy higher rather than guessing when buyers will show up. Gave enough time for PRINCE to show up on a WHITE horse to rescue CL but no go. Probability of one more FLUSH down is high and if no flush down then i will not mind buying at highs once 91.60 area is cleared. It can RUN once 91.60 area is cleared. Longs on pullback once 91.60 cleared is a better set up but we may not get pullback. That's where position size comes in.

Sitting on hands for CL. This is why discretionary traders can blow alogs out of water. This can not be coded ahead of time and expect CL will do this and that. One can code typical price patterns but not something like today. Once all the players are on the field , discretionary trader can trade probabilities.

Why CL is not clearing 91.60, i have no idea. Will it do? I have no idea. If and when it does, we know what to do. Till then wait for next flush down. No flush down and no clearance of 91.60- then there is NO TRADE for me- at least today. Binary options in play now and there are no clean set ups except for the EXPERIENCED traders and even then i will not trade with size. For last 2 hours CL in a 40 ticks range- there is no edge for discretionary traders in 40 ticks range.
