I'd wish there'd be more categories, like first 5 categories not necessarily from futures.io (formerly BMT) to crosscheck winners and broaden horizons.
- futures.io (formerly BMT) webinar of the year ==> Peter Campbell M3
- Best webinar (if seen elsewhere)
- Best trading book ==> Al Brooks' price action trilogy (sorry, I'm anticipating the end of the month )
- Best autotrade signals company ==> Currensee
- Best historical market data vendor ==> TickData
- Best CFD broker ==> GFT
- Best trading event (expo, seminar, etc) ?
- Best traders' settlement dreamplace (taxes, laws, life in general)
Could they be considered ? Gathering opinions on those fields could be even more interesting to me as we could say they might be less "documented" or made bold, although just as useful.

Thanks, I like these two additional categories and have added them to post #1.
If everyone would also start posting their nominations for these two categories, it would be appreciated!
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. 6) Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
