Hey guys,

Here we are again .



Like last year, futures.io (formerly BMT) is holding its annual "futures.io (formerly BMT) Best of Trading" awards where the users can select the best of the best in a wide array of categories.

You can see the 2010 results here:
Best Of Trading 2010 - Big Mike Trading

The award process is a two stage process: During November we hold nominations where the users need to reply to this thread and nominate the candidates. Then during December we will hold the actual voting part, where users will cast their votes and select the winners for each category.

EDIT: Fri 11/11/11, added two categories - PLEASE NOMINATE IN THESE CATEGORIES, TOO!
So first, we need nominations for each of these categories:
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Member Of The Year
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Thread Of The Year
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Programmer Of The Year
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Indicator Of The Year
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) System Of The Year
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Webinar Of The Year
  • Best Futures Broker
  • Best Data Feed
  • Best Forex Broker
  • Best Stocks Broker
  • Best Trading Platform
  • Best Trading Book

EDIT: Added Fri 11/11/11: I want to make it clear that the indicator/system does not have to be created this year to be eligible. It doesn't matter when the indicator/system was created, all that matters is that you guys think it is the best!

Please reply to this thread and start nominating --- please make it clear in your post what you are nominating for.

EDIT FEB 1 2012:
The winners have been announced. I apologize for the delay.

The below is just an image (easier to embed). For the links to each item, go here instead:

I am nominating the stuff I am using these days:

Platforms:
MultiCharts
Sierra Chart
NinjaTrader

Data feeds:
DTN IQFeed
TradingTechnologies

Brokers:
Futures - Velocity Futures
Forex - MBTrading
Forex - FXCM
Stocks - Interactive Brokers

I'd like to remind everyone to step up and nominate their favorites for each category. We should be looking at a large number of nominations. And then in December we'll take all these nominations and make a list so everyone can cast their final votes and winners be selected.

And yes, before someone asks... I put NinjaTrader on the list, even though I haven't used it in a couple years... as I am considering looking at it again (haven't decided, largely a matter of time and priorities).

Hey guys,

Here we are again .



Like last year, futures.io (formerly BMT) is holding its annual "futures.io (formerly BMT) Best of Trading" awards where the users can select the best of the best in a wide array of categories.

You can see the 2010 results here:
Best Of Trading 2010 - Big Mike Trading

The award process is a two stage process: During November we hold nominations where the users need to reply to this thread and nominate the candidates. Then during December we will hold the actual voting part, where users will cast their votes and select the winners for each category.

So first, we need nominations for each of these categories:
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Member Of The Year
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Thread Of The Year
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Programmer Of The Year
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Indicator Of The Year
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) System Of The Year
  • Best Futures Broker
  • Best Data Feed
  • Best Forex Broker

  • Best Trading Platform

Please reply to this thread and start nominating --- please make it clear in your post what you are nominating for.

Mike

May I nominate this simplest, not widely known, indie, per attached, namely

Equilateral Triangles and

Rectangular Bricks


by unknown bmt elite member,

as the indicator of the year 2011; because of its simplicity and profitability. The proprietor-trainer wishes to remain unanimous.

Equilateral Triangles in blue color suggest possible going long and

Rectangular Bricks in red color
suggest possible going short; at your own discretion and absolutely your own risks.

Not sure what the use is to nominate an entirely undocumented set of indicators which we are told are off limits to us.

futures.io (formerly BMT) Member Of The Year : Fat Tails
futures.io (formerly BMT) Thread Of The Year : Unofficial NT8 wish list thread
futures.io (formerly BMT) Programmer Of The Year : gomi (less productive yet still most skilled surgeon!)
futures.io (formerly BMT) Indicator Of The Year : bThinkPlanAction (terratec)
futures.io (formerly BMT) System Of The Year : errr...Myst (Ducman)
Best Futures Broker : Crossland LLC
Best Data Feed : Kinetick
Best Forex Broker : LMAX
Best Stocks Broker : InteractiveBrokers
Best Trading Platform : NinjaTrader 7

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.

Also,
- 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!

May I nominate this simplest, not widely known, indie, per attached, namely

Equilateral Triangles and

Rectangular Bricks


by unknown bmt elite member,

as the indicator of the year 2011; because of its simplicity and profitability. The proprietor-trainer wishes to remain unanimous.

Equilateral Triangles in blue color suggest possible going long and

Rectangular Bricks in red color
suggest possible going short; at your own discretion and absolutely your own risks.

Could you please let me know that from where it can be downloaded these 2 indicators

Not sure about many of the categories but here are some of my preferences:
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Programmer Of The Year - Fat Tails
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Indicator Of The Year - Tie between Zondor and Tim's version of the Volume Ladder and the Initial Balance indicator by Fat Tails. Not sure if those were created this year though.
  • Best Futures Broker - Advantage Futures
  • Best Data Feed - CQG
  • Best Stocks Broker - Thinkorswim
  • Best Trading Platform - CQG for Order Entry and NT for charts

They do not have to be created this year to win. We just want the best, whether it is this year or not.

Best Futures Broker - Mirus /flexibility in every way and commissions/

I would think "Best Options Trading Platform" shall be added to.
This would be ThinkOrSwim /TD/ for me.

Please add:
Best Trading Platform - Infinity / Transact
I did not see it on the previous posts yet unless I've missed it.
So far I've found this platform the best for rapid entries.
Inifinity is also used by a few pros I follow at the TTM team.

We lumped Best Stocks broker and Best Options broker together last year, likely will do same this year.

As for platform, I have made it more generic - just "Best Trading Platform", and not breaking it down by market type this year.

well I was missing nominate a couple of things that had pending....

Best Book. Market Profile. Really twisted my brain.
Best Platform. Ninja Trader.
Best data Feed. Blank. (have zenfire but will look forward to upgrade to kinetic or CQG upon brokers availability and cost)
Best Broker. Blank (have AMP but think that the service is costly for what they deliver)
Best Indicator...Visual SMA by Fat Tails (although they are other great ones thanks a lot to all programmers)

a big thank you to BIG MIKE. Since I subscribed to the forum in March this year I have had the greatest time of the times going through the threads and learning and re-learning. Big Thanks to all those generous members like Fat tails, Jeff Castille, Perry G ( Cherry G?), Charles Booth, Sharky, The Wizzard, Gomy, Cory, Zondor.... and many more whose posts change lives with their GENEROSITY and HIGH SPIRIT

Tip

Now that the voting is open, I'd like to remind everyone that if they don't like the choices (nominations), then they need to do a better job of participating in the nomination process next year.

So if you feel something is missing from the list in a certain category, please make sure you take the time to participate in the nomination process next year.

I want to thank everyone who did participate in the nomination process this year, and I want to thank everyone that will participate in the voting for the next few weeks!

Thanks guys!

Bronze with the automated trading system 'Myst'. Thanks for the recognition guys, I really appreciate it. It supports me in developing the system even further and maybe even develop the sequel to 'Myst' . I still have some new ideas that I want to try out.
