Hi guys -- I have some exciting news to share:
The day I founded Big Mike Trading
(BMT) in June 2009 as an extension of my trading blog, I never imagined it would become the largest futures trading community in the world.
I was fed up with the other trading communities that existed at the time, and the seemingly never ending rude behavior that was running rampant in those communities. I felt I could do better, and Big Mike Trading was born.
Our community has excelled at being a friendly environment for traders to help each other, with an excellent "signal to noise" ratio. Over the last six years, our community has grown at a rapid pace while other trading communities experienced major downturns.
Today, I announce the next step in our journey together. We will shed our old name, conceived of when the site was made up of only a few dozen members, and embrace a new name that better reflects our community -- one that is made up of over 75,000 members.
I have chosen the name "futures.io
" because it represents what the overwhelming majority of our user base is interested in, futures trading
. While our focus will be futures, we will not abandon other trading products such as stocks or forex.
