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 futures.io (formerly BMT)!

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

BREAKING NEWS

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.



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 futures.io (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

About Big Mike Trading

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

Stay tuned!

Mike

I admit I've had a 1-minute period of doubt and considered to resign my subscription to futures.io (formerly BMT). Finally, I'll stay.

in support of the new Big Trader platform we will be giving away new light weight ultra thin monitors.
For those who are in a demo mode, all you need to do is turn the monitors upside down when a positions goes against you to record that as a winner.

Trading futures and options involves substantial risk of loss and is not suitable for all investors. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. You may lose more than your initial investment. All posts are opinions and do not claim to be facts. Please conduct your own due diligence. Use only Risk capital when trading Futures.

I have moved as fast as I could to achieve the minimum requirements.

Done.

Just bought 64 apples and gutted them to get the sufficient amount of cores to meet the minimum requirements.

I am ready to download the platform.

First I would like to congratulate Mike on the release of his new platform! *Although I legally can't announce until tomorrow since we are a public company (I figured since the markets are closed no insider trading will result) I will go ahead and share will futures.io (formerly BMT) first.

We have a completely new version of IQFeed being released. *What we have done is reinvented what "cloud" and "cross platform" means. *This new version will work with any OS, and hardware platform and any software, regardless if that platform has implemented our API. *The beauty is that users are able to connect *to our new cloud, dubbed "clearsky", without being online and without actually powering up their platform. *It is truly transparent.

While we are excited about what we have been able to achieve, we aren't stopping there. *Our goal is to provide every trader an environment where their trades cannot lose. *The only way to do this is to read the future. *What traders will be most excited about is our ability to reduce latency to .19 fantaseconds, or 190 milliseconds in the future.**

This new version is available for preorder and will be priced at free! *We realize that many traders don't understand that high quality trading tools cost money to produce, operate and support. *But we believe that if all of our customers are making money with IQFeed, the government will be sure to fund our operation.

We won't be posting a download link since the service will "just work" without your involvement. It should appear on your machine... Soon.

Considering the magnitude of this platform, I think you should add "Swinging Dick" between "Big" and "Trader".

Come to think of it, I might want to use that myself. (C)

Love it Mike,good news.

Hope the server is close to the CME in Chicago...you know how paranoid we are about latency when we are trading 1-5 cars...

You didnt show the commisions and data fees...is their any bargaining? I only have 5K to open a account btw,be generous.

Mike, this is the most exquisite piece of hype Ive seen in a long time...but wouldnt that be something? If you could come even moderately close to fulfilling some of these fantastic ideas that would be huge. Certainly, if there is someone who could do this it would be you! Big Mike + Big Ideas = Big Trader ....all the best!


Ooops....you got me Big Mike....lol..I did feel like a fool there for a minute but I still think a futures.io (formerly BMT) supported "Big Trader" platform spearheaded by you is a great idea Mike. Have u considered it?

When asked . . . Big Mike responded: "The new 'Big Trader' brokerage services are so good, the firm will guarantee all traders using our brokerage will be profitable.

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."

Mike

Somehow this sounds, or should be illegal . . . don't you think? . . .I'm skeptical!


Big Mike View Post

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.

Will the platform support trading of instruments on other planets?

I think in the heat of the big moment Big Mike just forgot to mention that the Big Trader Platform has incorporated the the Patent Pending technology called No-Click Trading.

What this revolutionary technology means that traders now NEED NOT CLICK to initiate or close trades. All a trader has to do is think of the amount of profits (s)he needs for that week and trades will be automatically initiated / closed in appropriate sizes with No-Click buys / sells. Since the trader has not clicked, note that (s)he is not obligated to pay any brokerage on the same.

The implications of this advance are truly far-reaching and most brokerages are seeing dwindling volumes after most of the trading population has now opened a Big Trader account with this new fantafabolous technology.

Profits are now a way of life.

However note that traders need to purchase the optional addon Quasi-Fuzzy NeuroPositronic Brain Synch subscription service (see the Risk Free two-week trial offer below).

Note: Clients opening accounts on or before 1st April 2012 are restricted from thinking about INFINITY as a profit-target. This restriction will be in place due to a bug discovered in the final pre-release testing of Big Trader where INFINITY profit-targets lead to overheating of all 64 cores due to super high frequency trading activity of 3770000000 round turns per microsecond. Think INFINITY at your own equipment's risk.

Yes, we can accept that to start you in our Micro account size. Then when you are ready, you can fund a real account.

Big Mike View Post
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 futures.io (formerly BMT)!

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

BREAKING NEWS

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.



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 futures.io (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

About Big Mike Trading

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

---

Stay tuned!

Mike

mmm....my computer has not 64 cores...but I have 3 doggies...

This is all really exciting! Big Trader, ClearSky, Optimus Monitors!

I'm a little confused with the minimum requirements, though. Sorry, I'm not that tech savy.

I'm currently running Windows 95 on an Intel 386. Is that good enough?

I do have over 128K RAM so I think I'm covered on that end.

I have heard that Big Trader comes with an AutoTrader feature, as shown below. Is that correct?

Will that also run on my machine?

That is great. Hopefully you put the autotrading feature in there to "Just make a few hundred dollars a day". I understand if the feature for NO RISK costs a bit extra.

Some say that Big Trader is so powerful that;
- It is the first trading system with a “Mulligan” features that allows you up to 24 hours to take back your trade if it does not work out .
- You can now calculate the next bar 3 minutes before it has happened.
- Goldman Sachs has given up on global domination now that day traders can out gun them.
- It has a High Frequency Trading Subroutine that is so fast, that only dogs can hear it.
- It can plot crossovers with negative values (The –50 SMA over the –200 SMA).
- The US government has restricted it export to North America Only.
- Its so fast it will not process tick data -- but gets right down to individual electrons.
- Its graphs are so beautiful that you will turn to stone if you stare at them
- It is the first platform that successful implemented trading rules based on Astrology, Scientology and Zoology
- It uses special four-foot long keyboards so that fat fingered traders can not wipe out all the world’s exchanges in a single click.
- The bureau of printing and engraving are working triple shift just to print enough money for all the Big Trader users to spend.
- It is the first system that can not only trade stocks, commodities futures, options, credit default swaps and bonds -- but also art, baseball players and “favours” with that hot girl who lives next door.

Gomi has already been in discussion with me on this one.

His indicators for this new platform will not be available on the Elite forum of futures.io (formerly BMT) but will be available for purchase for a small fee from myself.

The basic indicator package will retail at $3,999

But seriously Big Mike, had you thought of going in this direction; setting up a brokerage or some form of vendor business?

When I see how well you manages and run futures.io (formerly BMT), you definitely have the ability to run some form of trading related business.

Mike, is there any truth in the rumor that Jon Stevens Corzine , the former CEO of Goldman Sachs and MF Global will be the head trader and adviser for all futures.io (formerly BMT) traders and will personally be doing demos of this awesome new trading platform.

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

Nice

Darn! I thought that I might finally be able to get my margins down to $100 per contract on the CL.

Good one! Had me until it started saying guaranteed winners. lol. Like futures.io (formerly BMT) was turning into a HFT firm where all of us could have a stake in. I got fooled until the 64 core thing. I was kind of believing until that point since I've had to open up a server(with 10 fans inside and 4 drive raid5) that could take 64GB once. Start a futures.io (formerly BMT) prop firm too!

I bet that it is a joke . That's all that i have to say in this matter. Maybe i will believe in it if there was not this so stupidly high minimal system requirements. And for what that hardware, to count some numbers in real time?Frightening is that everyone takes it seriously. What have i won in reward for exposure?

Some say that Big Trader is so powerful that;
- It is the first trading system with a “Mulligan” features that allows you up to 24 hours to take back your trade if it does not work out .
- You can now calculate the next bar 3 minutes before it has happened.
- Goldman Sachs has given up on global domination now that day traders can out gun them.
- It has a High Frequency Trading Subroutine that is so fast, that only dogs can hear it.
- It can plot crossovers with negative values (The –50 SMA over the –200 SMA).
- The US government has restricted it export to North America Only.
- Its so fast it will not process tick data -- but gets right down to individual electrons.
- Its graphs are so beautiful that you will turn to stone if you stare at them
- It is the first platform that successful implemented trading rules based on Astrology, Scientology and Zoology
- It uses special four-foot long keyboards so that fat fingered traders can not wipe out all the world’s exchanges in a single click.
- The bureau of printing and engraving are working triple shift just to print enough money for all the Big Trader users to spend.
- It is the first system that can not only trade stocks, commodities futures, options, credit default swaps and bonds -- but also art, baseball players and “favours” with that hot girl who lives next door.


- Ben Bernanke has switched from Bloomberg to Big Trader for all his daytrading needs.

The day 'Big Trader' is released, the economy will start to improve immediately. The Fed has even said they will stop printing money! And the White House is saying they can now finally start paying down our national debt. All thanks to 'Big Trader' !

Nice work on the April Fool's day joke. I especially liked the bit about Goldman Sachs switching over their entire trading... haha still makes me chuckle.

Suggestion for next year - It turns out Big Mike is actually a tiny petite 5ft woman who likes cats!
