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.

I paid for a couple combines almost 1 1/2 to 2 years ago, and did about 3 through the tick store. Never could pass them because my trading strategy doesn't follow their rules. I enjoy their community though. I try to get on everyday to chat with Viraj, FredDecker, and a few others. They're all nice people. It's sad to see good people leave like ChrisAP. They always have new funded traders but as stated in this thread, I don't know of many that last. It's a great place to learn and possibly get funded, but I think a majority of people there are only there for the learning experience, not to get funded and trade for a living with TST. I can't speak for their education program, but did I sign up for a free class when Bob Iaccino was there and enjoyed it. It was about the importance of location (high of day, low of day, support and resistance, etc.)

Yeah, community was great during my times, dunno about it later on. Gold pit was mostly empty but general pit was chatty. Crude pit was disturbing for me, packed and people constantly giving signals and opinions, blurring my own vision. I try to get away from all these skype groups, chats, while actually trading. A lot of gun slingers going through their hundredths combine too.

Trade to live. Not live to trade.

Yeah I don't listen to their opinions or calls really. Only a few seem to know what they're doing. The rest just basically scalp/gamble off "intuition" with no real plan. If anything, I'd do the opposite of what a majority of traders are doing there, or anywhere for that matter. I joined a secret Facebook group for trading futures that has a few good traders in it. Mostly /CL and /ES traders in it. 10 members. I think 7 or 8 of them trade for a living, or at least make substantial money in it.

Ok just signed up for the Combine.
2 month commitment, total came out to 300 bucks.

So these guys are only using Rithmic for their data.
The feed is pretty decent...but it doesn't look totally similar to Kinetick feed (which in my opinion is the premium option for data).

Has anyone noticed any difference in their indicators, like values get plotted differently using different feeds?

I didnt think it would...but its kind of noticeable.

btw their record keeping and book keeping of every trade is awesome.

Around 5% move the market. 10% try to follow the 5%. The rest provide liquidity.

Great suggestion

Now you have signed up....here is the best plan i have seen and from my teacher VK from Kong Zana Trading

We have 10 days to hit $3,000 profit using 5 contracts in NQ, GC, CL so lets break this into $300 profit per day.

Need to have some hard rules in place and have to follow them but this is nothing unusual for us and that goal is very easy to reach.

No one will throw money at you knowing that you don't have a rule based strategy to follow. To get paid you need to follow the RULES and follow the TREND not so called "experts"


Good Luck

Sharmas are you a scalper or do you look for bigger moves?
