Please provide some details on him being a vendor. My understanding was that he was not a vendor, if that is not true then I need some proof.


You may want to review our PM exchange on July 14.

Hi Mike , he is a vendor at T2W and here's a quote from him there :

While I appreciate the accolade, it is at least partly undeserved as the book in its entirety is not free, but I don't want to go on with that as we're getting into advertising. The precis that I uploaded to post #1, however, ought to provide enough information for someone who's interested in trading price to get started. Those who take to it easily may well need nothing else, except possibly the Developing A Plan pdf which I've also posted (there's also Tim's work on trading plans; as I remember, we each began these efforts at about the same time, and there are a lot of similarities). Unfortunately, few want to go through the plan process until they've lost considerable amounts of money. But that's always been the case. Aside from that, God knows I've made plenty of posts over the years. At this point, it's a way of paying it forward.

I just did. My understanding at the time was you weren't a vendor. You said you had a book, but my understanding was you posted that book here and it was free?

It seems I misinterpreted what you were saying, and now that I've re-read that exchange it seems that you are in fact a vendor marketing a product/service on (formerly BMT). And since what you are selling is directly related to everything you've been writing about, you are violating our no self-promotion policy in a huge way. Something I told you clearly we don't allow.

All this time I thought you were a nice guy but just not a trader. Now I realize you are a vendor and your purpose here is to get more business. It makes sense now on why you would never post anything of actual use or anything that would definitively show your skills.

In other words, just another typical vendor. And as such, you are now banned. You are not welcome back under any circumstance.

A note to the loyal followers of @DbPhoenix : Since most of you showed up only after he did, I hope you are in fact real people and not accounts created by him to promote his angle and popularity. Unfortunately, many (many!) vendors in the past take that approach, so it's always a concern. (formerly BMT) is a drama free zone. This is not ET. If you want to create drama over my decision to ban db, be forewarned that you'll be banned as well.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

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.
