Vendor/Commercial for-profit user tagging

In order to distinguish members who are selling services or products, their user titles will now reflect the name of their website.

Self-promotion is not allowed here. In addition, you should know (formerly BMT) has never accepted any compensation from any vendor and is not sponsored by any vendor.

That being said, the purpose of tagging these users is two fold:

1) Make it known they are selling something, so there is no question.
2) The member can then use their own judgment as to how to proceed.

Some vendors primary goal is to make money. Some vendors primary goal is to help people. The (formerly BMT) staff cannot decide which it is, only you can. So this policy is put in place to help make you aware and then allow you to reach your own conclusions.

Here is a sample of how a Vendor/Commercial username will appear:

Please register on to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

If you believe the staff has missed a user that is a vendor or selling a product, use the Report Post icon on the right side of the post to make us aware.


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.
