Wow, didn't realize I was going to make some people mad. I was excited because I wanted to learn more about futures. My class was about to start earlier this week and then PFG went under. Then I found out that the instructors are going to teach for free and I couldn't believe it. So I wanted to share that side of the story. Shoot, I was also excited because I thought for the first time since joining last November that I finally had something interesting to post!
I should have been more sensitive to those that lost money. I didn't think about that when I posted my story. However, in case my membership is in jeopardy, I can provide proof of my story.

Don't be discouraged and don't take it personally. You were sharing a good thing. Everyone is dealing
with this in their own personal way and some handle it better than others. I've been scammed many times too
and I have learned from it. Just wish I knew all the possible "angles" to avoid, but that isn't possible.
I'm sure there are others who are just starting out and appreciate knowing that there are still resources
available to them. This forum is a great place to share and learn, and there are many resources and people
right here at futures.io (formerly BMT) who are always willing to help you.
As I said, don't be discouraged. I didn't see anything wrong with your post and I can't imagine why
you would feel your membership would be in jeopardy. You were not attacking anyone and it wasn't
negative in anyway....I thought you were just sharing your experience.

Traders press was the publisher of SFO magazine and a number of other books sold on PGF bookstore shelves, including Woodies' CCI book, The Revolutionary thing.... You can not buy that book any more, so hang on to the one you already have. Who knows, it may become a best seller and as valuable as a Charles Dickens' original manuscript suitable for Smithsonian.
Yes, to me it always becomes mind twisting when thinking of people in suits perceiving themselves as some kind of "über mensch" and at the same time doing the most primitive things. No matter how hard I try, I never can get "über" to fit with "primitive".
