Thanks: 30,377 given, 89,959 received

At approximately 8:00 PM eastern time, futures.io (formerly BMT) went down. It took me about 1 hour to start looking into the problem (was taking some time off). It took another hour to bring the site back up after checking numerous things for any indication as to the cause. The site was down for approximately 120 minutes.

All users who logged in were receiving a message that they had been BANNED if they logged in after 8PM eastern.

This is incorrect. It was a server error that I am still working to identify. I have corrected the issue, but will continue looking for the underlying cause.

I have notified approximately 200 users who logged in and saw the message via email.

Please accept my apologies for any trouble.


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.
