Thinking about going Elite

I am strongly considering becoming an Elite member. Based on the popularity of this forum, the discounts that are available to Elite members, and the thread topics that are in the Elite forum, seem to make me think that it is well worth it. Anybody else have anything to say to that? @BigMike, I will not consider comments from you to be too unbiased - so feel free to say something also.

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.

There is not a single better dollar investment than futures.io (formerly BMT). If you're an indicator freak, yep got it.... if you're a recovering indicator freak got lots of those people too. Want to learn to code a new strat? Got it... The training via forum is amazing. TheWizard, ATM, Perry's, honestly too much to even thing about trying to justify to yourself not doing it.

I am trying to get a start in trading and will be joining today as well. I am strongly considering joining a broker that we can receive a discount through futures.io (formerly BMT). Do I need to become an Elite member first then sing up with the broker or sign with broker then with futures.io (formerly BMT) to receive the discount?

Love the forum, tons of great info available!

I just noticed that you already decided to become an Elite Member which is an excellent choice anyway.
But for everyone struggling with the same decision, here's another thread on the same topic:

futures.io (formerly BMT) first, then you'll have access to all the discounts.

It's worth it I'm sure to get away from the Troll's and bored kids and the can't trade but like to ram it down your throat that your way won't work, even if it is working brigade.


Cash flow issues currently, don't want to dip into account so I'm on spend zero mode for the next few month, likely sign up first wage from trading account.
