when you describe bg services that way, it sorts of paying back bg quite negatively, imho.
as far as for myself, the rate of investment and/or rate of return, is astronomical and in numerous ways and dimensions as well.
for one, there are about, in my poor estimation, more than 90% of members or visitors here, are looking for sort of some holy grail to help them in someway toward fame and fortune.
it is much like anything else on earth, most wannabe are just not willing to sweat it out by personally investing their time to learn the sequentialities of trading profitably. succinctly, many just want some kind of indicators that would materialize as holy grail for them toward trading profitably. am also certain there are many traders on board here who have 'practical holy grail' in their possessions and trading them with delight daily. i truly have no doubt that such practical holy grail does exist but there is no for sale sign.... and as you mentioned--some of that content is crap (like everywhere else).... those that are offered for sale are really something great to behold, talk about and try out for size.... that's about it.... sorry merchandizers and all related services....
now coming back to bm, i would have joined and gladly paid the $50 bucks the very first day, however, certain financial branches not familiar with big mike services probably mistaken big mike for something else not so legit.... but finally the payment went thru with relief and gratitude indeed.
no, i have not yet find any indicators offered exclusively for members only to further render my current trading setups more profitable nor more expeditious in terms of executing nor getting out of a position.... which does not negate my delight to have found and join of the like kind at bg.
if you have not joined, pay the nothing fee of $50.... the rate of return are more than 1000%....! and i kid you not.
most profitable traders on board here will try to hold you back from going live, if and when what you present here are deemed not quite ready for prime time.... that alone will save you thousands at least.... right? of course you know i am right....
join now and enjoy the benefits from those who precede before you to trading maturity and profitability....
may i also assure you i do not know big mike from adams and there is absolutely no biz connection whatever, either. am just telling you what i feel and what i find here, OK? happy trading everyone.
Is futures.io (formerly BMT) Elite Worth It? you bet your bamboo chop sticks, it is worth all the gold ....

@nakachalet... I did say, "there is no ROI other than if you actually get something out of it.." ... ... which means that ROI is an individual thing.. in my case, what I got from the forum was from a single member.. that is it... the rest, is basically being challenged and having to prove my points and ack when I am wrong, etc.. which all leads to growth... so ROI is an individual thing.
Yes, it is worth it.
1) The market is more expansive from futures.io (formerly BMT), so even if you can pick one one useful advice from the elite section, I think it will be worth it for your trading.
2) The site is objective about methods, brokers, etc and you can view webinars to choose what is appropriate for you
3) Good hearted people help each other in creating indicators that one can find it useful on your trading platform
4) True feedback that I believe is based on genuine experience
Last point: It's not easy to run a site of this sort and I do want Mike to get compensated for it.
1) Hosting is expansive when you run so many threads
2) Custom programming for VBulletin that the site is running on in is not cheap
3) constantly watching for and monitoring comments...headache
PM with any questions about optimusfutures (800) 771-6748 (561) 367 8686. THERE IS A SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS IN FUTURES TRADING.

IMO, considering all the content here and time spent by someone who is working practically for free to maintain it, I think a small fee is worth it. The elite section does offer many things that the free section does not. Personally, I would pay regardless of whether there is an elite section just because I know someone is footing the bill for this site...a site which I visit and enjoy every day. If you enjoy this site do what you can to make sure it stays around...and become an elite member.
There are probably 2-3 forums like this over the Internet. You will get out of futures.io (formerly BMT) what you put it in.
futures.io (formerly BMT) is not an autotrader you are buying. If you spend long hours in looking at webinars, reading commenting and sharing on forums then futures.io (formerly BMT) is the best place there is and 50$ is nothing compared to what you will get.
IMO it is well worth it. There is a lot of education in the site, but of course it takes time to digest. Expect the fee to be the smallest investment you make, with the biggest investment being your time. But that is true of pretty much everything...
