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.

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.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Yeah, why not....you can keep your same rules in place as far as promoting themselves and so forth.

Today they are allowed to become Elite Members.

I am asking for a discussion on whether or not that should change.

All Elite Members are already instructed to not share any Elite content outside of the Elite section. But we all know that some vendors take the code developed here, and then resell their own version of it. We also all know that some vendors are better than others, and would never do that.

I am trying to stay neutral and solicit feedback from others. So I won't comment further and instead would like to hear from everyone else.

@Big Mike

I vote yes ... if a vendor breaks the rules... boot the offending vendor to the curb

If Vendors are no longer allowed to be Elite members ... Hello , Houston ... we have a problem .... Nobody and I mean Nobody is willing to give up @Fat Tails

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

Let me say that any change, if made, would allow all existing members to be grandfathered in.

Agree with Mike...

on the potential for losers to take stuff that is not theirs and repackage it for sale to the unsuspecting...true that. Also though something could be done to protect the mostly clueless from the mostly unscrupulous...who happen to be mostly clueless as well.

Everyone understands that the overwhelming majority of futures.io (formerly BMT) members are here seeking something. That kind of makes us all targets. A group of 35,000+ interested or engaged in trading financial markets.

I'll clarify one thing further as well: I am referring to vendors that sell indicators or trading rooms. I categorize Platforms and Brokerages separately, even though they share the 'Vendor/Commercial Product' designation (something I may change).
