Sorry for the crappy first post, but while searching the net for historical tick data, I came across a couple posts from Mike on various trading forums saying the there was tick data available for ES and CL in the Elite circle section of the forum. It just so happens that ES and CL are the two contracts I'm interested in testing on, and 2-3 years of data is perfect.
So what I'm wondering, is if any elite members can chime in about the quality or source of that tick data. Basically just wanting to know whether or not I can completely trust it. I know $50 bucks is nothing, and there's a lot more value on this site, but I just wanting to check before paying.
By not being an Elite member, you have had enough time to judge the quality of this site, also have the hope to find the same quality in their historical data.
As an apprentice you would be ready to lose your shirt by trading ES and be worried about spending $50 (4*ES ticks) ??

I suggest you ask @Big Mike and / or @sam028 directly in regards to the quality of the provided historical data on futures.io (formerly BMT), I think they both should be ideal to answer your questions.
I do agree with you. It's not the money but its about helping one in other, and as a beginner trader I would have to say that futures.io (formerly BMT) and the members within this forum have gave me so much more than the $50 that I have spent. What exactly this forum is worth, I really cant put a price on it but its will worth the $50. I really do not know how to answer your request but I would highly recommend you join.

You'll have to forgive a guy for being skeptical of online money grabs especially with in the trading world. But I must say there certainly is some loyal responses coming out of this place. I guess I've grown sour of BB's related to trading after pretty weasly experiences on places like stockhouse .
The quality of discussion around the regular member area seems rather solid, is the elite thing more a matter of supporting this place, or is there actually more elite discussion there as well?
I gotta say having the board founder come out and pretty much tell me to take a hike politely actually inspires confidence in this place.

$50 gets you access to 100's of webinars, great trading journals, $1000's worth of indicators (the gom package would run you around $2k anywhere else), great insight from serious traders, and even a group of expert programmers that will create custom indicators for you for free. Once you pay it you will feel like you ripped the Big Dawg off, which hopefully makes you want to contribute more. The $50 is more about keeping a serious community than the money as you can tell from Mikes post above
