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 100,000 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.

@NinjaTrader, @TopstepTrader,

I am getting mixed messages on this. So, please forgive me if I ask this one more time.

I want to open two simultaneous accounts with TopStep Trader. I want to open two accounts because I want to use one account to only take Long trades and the other account to take Short trades. This will allow me to take a Long trade and a Short trade at the same time without closing my positions.

@ Topstep Trader,

Your input will give me the information I need to proceed.

You need to flag @TopstepTrader with this username to get their attention.

Bob.

Thank you Bob. I assumed that your mention of them would be sufficient to get their attention.

In any event, as this is not the appropriate thread and to avoid split/multiple threads, the discussion is better suited here:

A Class act


Recently a trader in the TST combine broke a Rule. Well, let me let him tell you:
Trader:
"I lost the trading combine because i holded a position at 12:00 the 3 July, noticed too late it was independance day in America.

Was about to hit the profit target for 150k combine step 2 the same day.

Feel stupid"

Michael Patak [Founder of TST]

"[Trader] if what you are saying is accurate... let’s waive this broken rule. Let support know we chatted. This is under the assumption that you are positive and close to your step 2 profit goal. In this rare scenario, someone who is that close to meeting the profit target and slips due to a US holiday trading should be looked differently."

A Classy move Mr. Patak!

Sadly, I did the same thing with OneUp and lost my Combine. A bad mistake but my own fault.

Wasn't the closing time 12:15? Not sure since i didn't trade myself that day and i didn't check the trading hours.

Well done by TST to waive the broken rule, however i must say i had a similar experience at OneUp and they did waive it for me as well, as a one time offer. Did you contact OneUp to explain your one time mistake?

Yes it was 12:15. Maybe it was the 4th because he did say it was Independence Day. The trader was from another country so he may not have been sure of the exact Closing time on the 3rd.

Yes I did contact @oneuptrader at support@oneup.com and was told by Bruce I was no longer eligible for a funded account.

Combine and Anti Combine.

I want to open two accounts. One for winning trades, and one for losing (loosing?) trades.

"If we don't loosen up some money, this sucker is going down." -GW Bush, 2008
“Lack of proof that something is true does not prove that it is not true - when you want to believe.” -Humpty Dumpty, 2014
“The greatest shortcoming of the human race is our inability to understand the exponential function.”

We want to congratulate @TopstepTrader for their anniversary, so we sent them cake & cupcakes

They were kind enough to send over some photos, which I've attached below.

Thank you to @TopstepTrader for their continued site sponsorship of our community here at futures io.
