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 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.

@TopstepTrader

Any likely news on FDAX/FDXM this quarter/year?

@ratfink - Unfortunately, a working relationship with Eurex and/or it's vendors has proven more difficult than we anticipated. It's something we made a hard push for via various channels only to come up disappointed in 2016. We're still exploring avenues to be able to offer their products, but at this time I have no real update. I wish I had better news, but please know we continue to try to push it forward via our Clearing and Data Vendor relationships.

Am I right in thinking that EUREX (and ICE) are available in the Funded Account?

Is there a time limit you have to wait first?

@bobwest - You are correct. You can trade both EUREX and ICE immediately in the Funded Account now that there is no longer a 10-day rule. Also, it is worth noting that E-mini Russell 2000 (TF) is coming back to CME on July 1, 2017. CME will then have exclusive rights to the product for 10 years. Therefore, come July we are very excited to offer the Russel as a product in the Trading Combine.

So ZB and other interest rate products roll tomorrow. Tonight is Sunday the 26th @ 7pm my time. There was an email that said products roll on the 27th, so the Sunday night before Monday the 27th should traders use the march contracts or the June contracts? When exactly does it roll? 12 am EST?

Which Money Management style have you found to be the most consistently profitable for your combine candidates? Does it differ from your prop firm contractors(traders)?

The risk of a huge drawdown for catastrophic wins may not be feasible... vs the analogy of the tortoise and hare.

I would like to share with the futures.io community the exciting news that I have made the decision to transition from Chief Executive Officer (CEO) to the role of Chief Visionary Officer (CVO). TopstepTrader has an incredible team in place, which has allowed me to focus once again on what I truly love: being involved in the markets and working closely with you and our community of traders.

As CVO, I will remain the leading force in driving consistent improvement and innovation at TopstepTrader. I am, and will continue to be, YOUR voice and advocate. I am excited to focus on re-engaging with our community, through our Squawk Radio broadcast and other in-person opportunities.

Stepping into the role of CEO is Jay Rudman, our current Chief Growth Officer. I have known and worked with Jay for years and have always been impressed with his ability to take companies to the next level. I am confident that he is the right person to expand TopstepTrader’s offerings and opportunities, and I look forward to leading with Jay in my new formative role.

Continue to trade well and thank you for remaining loyal TopstepTrader advocates.

Michael Patak
Founder and CVO, TopstepTrader


I encourage you to join me on this week’s “In the Know with the CVO” on Friday, March 10 at 10:00 AM CT, which will be live-streamed through TopstepTrader’s Facebook page.

@TopstepTrader

Micheal.

I would like to know upon being a funded trader if in addition to a contract between TST and the Funded Trader is the funded trader
also required to sign a contract between the funded trader and a futures brokerage firm?

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.

@aquarian1 Thanks for reaching out! The trading agreement is between the funded trader and our proprietary trading firm. However, since you are trading on a sub account of the prop firms master account the prop firm technically owns the brokerage account. Therefore, there is no contract directly between the funded trader and the brokerage firm.

Trade well!

Thanks for reaching out! We can't share personal financial information about our traders. However it may be helpful to know that the weekly profit average among our funded traders is $549 and we average 52 funded traders per month. We offer performance coaching so that all of our funded traders have plenty of resources to assure they can trade their best and keep the funded trader status.

Trade Well
