Announcing the new BMT Big Trader platform and brokerage!

It is my great pleasure to share this news with you! This has been a long time in the making, and I couldn't have done it without all the fantastic support from the members of (formerly BMT)!

It hasn't been picked up by the wires yet, so I am reposting the news story below.


Dallas, TX - Big Mike Trading, the best trading community on the planet, has announced intentions to release their new trading platform and brokerage services dubbed 'Big Trader' on April 1st, 2012.

Please register on to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

Big Mike, President of Big Mike Trading LLC, was quoted as saying: "I've always thought the other trading platforms just weren't big enough. So I reached out to the (formerly BMT) community, the best traders and programmers on the planet, to build my own. The goal: create the biggest and best trading platform in the world. I mean this thing is just huge. You are going to make so much money with 'Big Trader', you better start shopping for that perfect private island you always wanted to buy. And I mean quick."

When asked about the new brokerage services also announced, Big Mike responded: "The new 'Big Trader' brokerage services are so good, the firm will guarantee all traders using our brokerage will be profitable. Technology wise, we have acquired several clearing firms and developed our own risk backend. We've also created our own dark pool for the bigger traders to trade in private."

In fact, it has been reported that the 'Big Trader' technology is so vast, and the servers so numerous and large, that the CME had to add a wing at the new Aurora facility just to hold all of the firms servers right next to their matching engines. We asked Big Mike to comment, and he had this to say: "Our fills are actually better than Goldman's. That's how big our servers are. And that's just huge."

It was later reported that Goldman is currently in talks to switch all trade desk and execution services over to the new 'Big Trader' platforms as soon as possible. We tried to reach Goldman for comment, but they called us a Muppet and hung up.

Big Mike has also said that all members of the Big Mike Trading community will be given a free lifetime license to 'Big Trader', the brand new release of their flagship product which will be debuting shortly. Additionally, all members of the Big Mike Trading community will be given exclusive Level 69 commission rates of $0.001 cent per RT through the new 'Big Trader' brokerage, for any member trading more than 377 round turns per second.

The minimum system requirements for 'Big Trader' are listed below. Keep in mind these are just minimums, we obviously recommend more:
- 128GB memory
- 64 cores
- 16 monitors
- 4 keyboards
- 4 mice

The best trading community on the planet. If you aren't a member of (formerly BMT), you aren't a real trader.


Stay tuned!




Guys... yes, this was an April Fool's joke. It seems I fooled a bunch of you who rushed to conclusions without even reading the post.

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.

I only got 63 cores.

If I become half a percent smarter each year, I'll be a genius by the time I die

Sorry, but I still think Goldman's platform -- MuppetTrader 1.0 -- is the best!
