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.

i think the person that made the post had a point. the trading educators that sold him all of that over price b.s. told some fairy tails along the way. we have all herd the same bed time storys. is there any one on this forum that trust trading vendors. any thing sold by a trading vendor should there not be a big red stamp ..buyer be ware and some a skull an cross bones. i fell sorry for the guy..

Hope you are trading well.
Your pessimism and negativity is overflowing in this entire vendors section.
Can you please consider using punctuation in your posts? It will make it easier to follow and understand.

It's too tiresome, to do that.

And too futile: if you want an example of why, just look at the long conversation you had with myself and others about TopStepTrader. Even after methodically and painstakingly going through each post you made and listing all the factual errors, and explaining to you in detail and at length why your conclusions were all mistaken because your premises were mistaken, you still went on to ask TST how many of their funded traders are earning $200,000 a year. (A more classic example of "missing the point" couldn't be imagined.)

On that note, it had become futile even trying to educate you. Kahuna Dog is completely correct that your negativity is overflowing the entire vendors section. I've just decided to stop reading this part of the forum while you're still doing this. Nobody needs it.

the recursive paradox of self-determination

or...if you lack the skills to trade; then trade to acquire the skills you lack

I ask for strength,

trading presents obstacles to make me strong;

I ask for wisdom,

trading provokes my critical thoughts;

I ask for courage,

trading challenges me with risk and uncertainty;

I ask for patience,

trading puts me in situations where I am forced to wait;

I ask for discipline,

trading tests my resolve and determination;

I ask for prosperity,

trading gives me the opportunity to profit;


I may not get everything I ask for,

yet, trading gives me everything I need.
