@Dionysus - Did you ever get any other vendor to agree to join the competition?

Unfortunately, you probably never will find any, because this is what typically happens in this industry...

I had a friend ask for "proof" from one of these trading room vendors, and here is the reply he got:

"We make money every month in a Sim account. A Sim account mimics a live account to within 95% accuracy. If you would like to see SIM data, we would be happy to provide you with it. "

I guess at least he admits he doesn't trade live. I'd love to know how he provide the 95% accuracy claim, since he has no live trades to compare to SIM.

Anyhow, I'm sure that vendor is a SIM millionaire!

If you have any questions please send me a Private Message or use the futures.io "Ask Me Anything" thread
