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 Ė 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 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.

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.

Its a shame you do mike doesn't free speech mean anything. I mean it is a join type of forum you think that would alleviate some liability. Hopefully you have enough revenue from the site to make it worthwhile. i know you do an excellent job.

I have fought several legal battles already and will continue to do so. It is "my job". All I ask is that when you post something that puts a negative view on something, be sure and back it up by making it clear you are/were a customer and have direct experience, and cite a specific example. Otherwise make it clear that what you are stating is not a fact but only your opinion. This way it is clear it is not libel.

We are sufficiently so I'm not going to say anything else.

I have yet to make up my mind as to who I should trust: you or him.


Which one costs less...

You could try it out and report your findings... we love pioneers around these parts ...

I am afraid free speech doesn't apply. This forum is owned by Big Mike and he can set the rules. They should be spelled out in the Terms of Service, to which each member agrees to follow when he joins.

Thats why I don't post anymore. Got tired of defending my stance that consistant profitability in intraday trading is not do-able from a long term perspective. I do notice over 5000 views to my posting and yet no one has submitted any evidence that would disproof my hard earned conclusions.

Finished reading Gary Smith's( How I day trade for a living) and the guy pours out his heart that after 19 years of studing charts and using hundreds of techincal indicators, he was still not profitable! He tossed them all and started focusing on Quasi-fundemental indicators like "Sentiment" plus he went to a longer timeframe instead of intraday(which could be minutes)

To this day he has a on going challange that if anyone can show proof(statement) of 18 months of daytrading profitablity... - hey I only wanted 12 months!!!

I cannot get it why would anyone should show anything to you? And why prove anything. Very interesting point of view.
Perhaps I'm missing something. Please do tell...
