Welcome to futures io.

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

I want to add that i think there are many honest vendors out there, especially those selling tools like Ninjatrader, the many brokers, and some of the indicator people : jigsaw, bookmap, tradeswquak , probably orderflowanalytics (don't own that yet)and etc
And If Big Mike ever opens a live trading room I will first in line to sign up!

Just to add myself,

@Forexoil and I had a quick message last night. We were coming from very different mindsets but not worlds and clarified as gentlemen should

No BS is right. Never seen anybody do anything as open as @kevinkdog did here.
My already high opinion of Kevin, was elevated to almost atmospheric levels when I saw this last week.

Hi @kevinkdog,

I seem to recall that you once stated most of your trades lasting several weeks whereas the current review linked in this thread stated that most of your positions are closed the same day and you carry virtually no overnight risk.

Out of curiosity, and I am assuming your backtests indicated that it was a good move, is there a specific reason (other than backtest results) you decided to move towards day-trading type systems?

Actually, most of my positions are swing trading strategies, holding overnight. Not sure why that review concluded differently - could have been combination of some quick exits, some rollovers, etc.
