Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

sysot1t.... you hurt my feelings so....

dood... you are going about this as if you were expecting a return for your money... here is the deal... there is no return for your money.. just see it as a way to basically see all content without restrain... some of that content is crap (like everywhere else) and some is worth it.. in the end... it is not a huge amount of money, but you just need to see it as an expense.. nothing more... there is no ROI other than if you actually get something out of it..

hi sysot1t, my fellow/fellee paid member

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 (formerly BMT) Elite Worth It? you bet your bamboo chop sticks, it is worth all the gold ....

A few questions for you....

1) How much time have you spent making your posts in this thread ?
2) How much time reading the replies on this thread ?
3) How much time thinking about both ?

Lets say in hours, roughly..?

1) ~10-15 minutes

2) ~5-10 minutes

3) I'm not consumed by this when I'm not replying or reading the thread.

You asked, I answered. I fear no troll but this is a little more than I thought a simple question would bring.

@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.

How much money do you need to trade futures successfully?

Yes, it is worth it.
1) The market is more expansive from (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

Yes, Elite Is Worth It !!!!

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 (formerly BMT) what you put it in. (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 (formerly BMT) is the best place there is and 50$ is nothing compared to what you will get.

I'm very interested in

and (if the data is accurate)

but a lot of other sites offer the same thing, and fail to deliver.

Any feedback elites have would be useful.
It would also be cool if Big Mike could post stats on retention of Elite Members

Thank you.

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...

Is Elite Wothr It?

What a question?

How much is trading knowledge worth, you can pay literally $1000's for training course and learn enough to get you into trouble after that where do you go?

Is there somewhere that is 'inexpensive' with enough knowledge to assist you with a multiple of things?

Usually not - 'IF' you do not get value form the "Elite membership' then i honestly believe that you are not actively trading or not actively looking to trade professionally.

The knowledge stored in these threads in 'unbeleivable' .

Just one thread that has your attention read from go to wo - will more than pay for the membership then you have everything for FREE??

God for it you will be glad you did
