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

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 Ė 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 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.

Yes!

In no way does Mike endorse me! I should have clarified when I posted!

As he said, he is allowing me to do this since I am doing it for free.

Thanks for clarifying Mike!

As to all reading this, do NOT be afraid to PM Mike or anyone else about questions or concerns! I am trying to be as transparent and honest as possible, but even then, you may not be comfortable speaking to me about something. In this case, go to someone else on the forum to speak to about the issue at hand!

I could not have done ANYTHING without Mike and his wonderful forum. So if you want to thank anyone, it should be our outstanding community as well as Mike himself.

Congrats !!...Seems very noble. and hope you are able to share ideas and risk mgt with aspiring traders and guide them to understand why and how price moves.

I only trade ES...will be great to catch up...will stop by

cheers ...good luck

The same webinar link as the original. I will re-post it in the morning for those that don't know.

The times are 8:00-10:30 CST

30 minutes before the New York open is when we start.

I couldn't respond in the chat box that appeared on the left of the screen.

That chat box what part of his screen that he was sharing. It wasn't a separate window or box in which you can post messages.

That is a good question!

I have not thought about doing so!

I will not record the session until I am all settled in and things are flowing smoothly. At that point, I will consider it!

I am sure your webinar went well.

But *boo hiss* on something...

Next time, could you give more than a 23 hour notice for it? Like maybe a couple of days?

I am sure you would have gotten more attendance if folks knew about it a bit sooner. I just found the link now, after it has concluded. Poopy.

Just an idea. ;-)

The webinar went really well!

I am not so sure what you mean by giving it a multi-day head start.

It is the same link every day. Either click the one I post in the morning or save one of them and just use it over and over again.
