Just want to be upfront and clear on this.


I'm not sure I like where this is heading.

I recognize JAM is trying to operate within the forum rules for vendors, by giving his service away for free. But this is a very fine line. To come here, promote one free product or service, gather user info, email users to try to get them to buy another product or service which is not free.... it is not in the spirit of the "no self promotion" policy that exists on the forum.

Basically, it is still self promotion. It is in JAM's interest to use the forum to get people to sign up, as he stands a chance to sell them a service. This is called "business" and all business is not EVIL simply because money is involved, naturally. The issue is not Jam's intentions being pure or not to help someone. The issue is simply that this is against (formerly BMT) policy, vendors are not allowed to use posts on the forum to promote their business.

JAM, will you clarify the contents of this educational email, and whether or not you will be accepting any money for any product or service, ever, from any (formerly BMT) member?


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.
