Trading schools is itself freakin' dodgy, Emmett is highly selective on reviews. His turnaround on MES recently.. Exploiters depend on building trust (my heart bleeds for his story of *redemption) mix some profitable lies in with truth. The source of the information does matter IMO.

I am not sure I would put Emmett in the "freakin' dodgy" category. Colourful yes, freakin’ dodgy, probably not.

Like any review you see on FIO, it is up to you to do your own due diligence. Some reviews of vendors that get posted on FIO are also “freakin’ dodgy”

This posts for example about MT Predictor:

Obvious all shill reviews via MTPredictor themselves.

Emmett has at the very least got people talking and is beginning to pry open the lid on the dark side of this industry. A side we all know exists and have probably been duped by at some point or another.

I don’t believe his criteria of requesting that the vendor provide proof of profitability is dodgy. Especially when you get vendors like Back To The Future Trading quoting that they have 100% leading indicators that tell you when to be ready to trade days and hours before a setup - but they can't and won't provide proof they actually trade themselves.

We can agree to disagree, but I don't believe what Emmett is doing is inherently 'bad'.
