I registered originally on futures.io (formerly BMT) a looong time ago, but didn't really spend any time on futures.io (formerly BMT) until recently. I wished I would have made futures.io (formerly BMT) my main stay of education 2.5 years ago.
But I have been around the block on many other forums, and futures.io (formerly BMT) seems almost uncharacteristic of the rest of the trading community. By that I mean there seems to be a certain sense of "Sharing" that just doesn't exist anywhere else.
On most of the other forums, every once and a while you will see someone who seems interested in sharing things with others. But usually, there is always some caveat somewhere that you don't realize until you have already invested a lot of time in something. Wether it comes down to someone wanting to sell you something, or finding out that the person explaining something has never traded the method they portend to explain, but wish to keep whatever allegedly makes them profitable a big secret.
So, 'Respek' to those that help out.

I agree with all you have said but would like to add that futures.io (formerly BMT) is pretty much devoid of what I like to call "guttersnipes" who seem to go out of thier way to attack or belittle or demean other members and/or thier posts. Critical review of topics or other members are not malicious or otherwise unnecessarily offensive It's a positive atmosphere here (due in large part to Mikes "hands on" involvement and vigilance) and is most certainly the best site I've seen am glad to be a part of

"Nerdy Nerdo" has been banned for signing up with fake info and via an anonymous proxy, both of which are not tolerated on futures.io (formerly BMT). He was likely here to cause trouble, and is now gone.

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?
