Hi guys,

It's that time again!



Like the last few years, 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 and 2011 results here:
Best Of Trading - Big Mike Trading

The award process is a two stage event: From now until the end of November, we will hold nominations where the users need to reply to this thread and nominate the candidates.

Then during December we will hold the actual voting, where users will cast their votes and select the winners in each category. Remember, we can only vote if first a name has been nominated!

So step one is to make nominations in each of the following categories:
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Member of the Year
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Thread of the Year
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Journal 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 Forex Broker
  • Best Stocks Broker
  • Best Data Feed
  • Best Trading Platform
  • Best Trading Book

Like years past, if you have a suggestion for an additional category, please reply and let me know and I will consider it.

Indicators/systems/webinars/books etc do not need to have been created in 2011 in order to qualify. This thread is for the Best of Trading, which means the best that currently exists, regardless of when it was created.

Mike

My nominations:

Best thread
Artificial Bee Colony by NJAMC
( )
For the sheer amount of effort he has put into this and the insights/code shared unconditionally in such a short time.

Best Trading Platform
TT X_TRADER
Without a doubt, given the features in 7.11 and 7.12 and release cycle of new interfaces they've put out this year.

Best Futures Broker
Mirus Futures
I am moving my account to other brokers (for logistical reasons) but I still think they did a phenomenal job and will definitely be missed.

Best Forex Broker
PFGBest
For outsmarting regulators.

Best Stocks Broker
Interactive Brokers
Unfortunately.

I'm thinking we should add a category for "futures.io (formerly BMT) Best Journal of the Year", since many of my nominations for thread of the year in the last post are actually journals.

Also, since we already have a MVP (member of the year), should we add a Rookie of the year?

What do you think?

Yes, should add this one.

Since there is too many journal in this forum, sometimes I don't know which one is the best to read. I only refer to the amount of replies and views to figure out which one I should read.

However, it only means that the journal had been exist a long time but doesn't mean it is the best.

My nominations:

PFGBest
For outsmarting regulators.


How can you say PFGBest is best forex broker. They were the worst, who went bankrupt and customer's have still not recovered the money from their accounts.

Unfortunately.

Ofcourse, Interactive Brokers is the best broker in the industry. No broker is close or near to it.

I'm pretty sure he's being sarcastic..."for outsmarting the regulators"...

Actually I think I have enough experience with trading platforms to nominate the following in addition to my earlier post.
Best Futures Trading Platform: Ninja Trader 7

Best Strategy-based Stock/Forex trading: Tradestation. Also, a good back-up for my Ninja Futures trading.

Best Options Trading: ThinkOrSwim.

I'm thinking we should add a category for "futures.io (formerly BMT) Best Journal of the Year", since many of my nominations for thread of the year in the last post are actually journals.

Also, since we already have a MVP (member of the year), should we add a Rookie of the year?

What do you think?

Mike

I say Journal of the Year and Elite Journal, seeing as Elite Journals are only visible to Elite Members.

I mean, thats my suggestion.

Instead of rookie, how about Rizing Star...Or comeback poster of the year...

Journeymans award for most posts...most active?

My nominations
futures.io (formerly BMT) Member of the Year
big mike HIMSELF... none other!!! A great deal of effort has gone into this site.... Thanks Big Mike.

futures.io (formerly BMT) Thread of the Year
don't have ONE favourite (sorry, hard to tabulate this result, right!)

futures.io (formerly BMT) Indicator of the Year
Volume Profile is new and exciting to me... still need to learn a lot more on it but the standard Bollinger Bands are still useful.

futures.io (formerly BMT) System of the Year
Wish I had one! I'd be a more successful trader.

futures.io (formerly BMT) Webinar of the Year
There were SO MANY great webinars, but I one that IMPACTED me the most was the Pyschology webinar by Denise Shull. Found it interesting that I am hard wired to follow the crowd... and fail like 80% of us. Who could admit it ?

Best Futures Broker
I like Mirus with the Ninja Trader platform although I also use Intereactive Brokers daily. (can I split my vote?)

Best Forex Broker
FXCM.... they don't have a dealer desk trading against you with stops!

Best Trading Platform
Interactive Brokers.

Best Trading Book
John F Carter's 2012 update is still my standard.

Hi Guys,

I would have to say the best everything for me is Scott Hodson's videos on Ninja Trader .Net programming. It was very helpful. Please keep them coming Scott. Also, I have not been here in a while, but I would suggest getting somebody to also do videos with either Tradestation or Multicharts easy language. That would also be great. Mike, maybe you can do it since you learned it in a day :-)

thanks and happy holidays
Spencer

First of all, a BIG salute to all the programmers who have contributed in one way or another in this forum. Your efforts in coding or amending various indicators and solving IT issues are greatly appreciated!

Another BIG salute to all who have started or maintained a trading journal.. Your thoughts and comments have helped me in many ways.

Kudos to @ThatManFromTexas, @DionysusToast, @Fat Tails and @kbit for brightening the threads with their sense of humour..

Last but not least, a BIG salute to Big Mike for maintaining a truly great forum for sharing and discussion..

Since this is nomination and not voting, I wish to nominate a number of entries:

futures.io (formerly BMT) Thread of the Year:

Big Mike View Post
Hi guys,

It's that time again!



Like the last few years, 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 and 2011 results here:
Best Of Trading - Big Mike Trading

The award process is a two stage event: From now until the end of November, we will hold nominations where the users need to reply to this thread and nominate the candidates.

Then during December we will hold the actual voting, where users will cast their votes and select the winners in each category. Remember, we can only vote if first a name has been nominated!

So step one is to make nominations in each of the following categories:
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Member of the Year
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Thread of the Year
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Journal 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 Forex Broker
  • Best Stocks Broker
  • Best Data Feed
  • Best Trading Platform
  • Best Trading Book

Like years past, if you have a suggestion for an additional category, please reply and let me know and I will consider it.

Indicators/systems/webinars/books etc do not need to have been created in 2011 in order to qualify. This thread is for the Best of Trading, which means the best that currently exists, regardless of when it was created.

Mike

My nominations:

Best thread
Artificial Bee Colony by NJAMC
( )
For the sheer amount of effort he has put into this and the insights/code shared unconditionally in such a short time.

Best Trading Platform
TT X_TRADER
Without a doubt, given the features in 7.11 and 7.12 and release cycle of new interfaces they've put out this year.

Best Futures Broker
Mirus Futures
I am moving my account to other brokers (for logistical reasons) but I still think they did a phenomenal job and will definitely be missed.

Best Forex Broker
PFGBest
For outsmarting regulators.

Best Stocks Broker
Interactive Brokers
Unfortunately.

I want to add my remaining nominations (haven't been able to do so as I wasn't too familiar with other members).

This really depends on what an individual finds useful for his personal needs - based on experience, style/method of trading, how many threads read, time spent on forum etc. On that basis, I have, unfortunately, got just a few nominations.

futures.io (formerly BMT) Member of the Year - FatTails (always responds to questions and helpful)
futures.io (formerly BMT) Programmer of the Year - vvhg (done quite a few indis that I have found quite useful)
futures.io (formerly BMT) Indicator of the Year - Aggregated Time & Sales (brilliant and free)
Best Stocks Broker IB (reasonable fees/commissions)
Best Trading Platform - Ninja Trader (very good and free - if using just for charting)
Best Trading Book - Can there really be one?
