I can't say enough about the rescue, so one more post.

That is the "coming soon" page, dogs they've got in during the last week or two for the most part.

Please help if you can.

I just want to say that I think I get more than my $50 worth here every few days, just in terms of increasing my understanding of the markets from the discussions by and with other traders and the information you make available.

This site is pretty unique, and I am happy to have found it.

As for those who are trying to knock down the door to get in to sell their valueless stuff, or to strut their egos, it's good you keep them out. Everything I have seen here is fair, and is done fairly.

The community is good, the moderation is good, the value added from the webinars and other content is fine; basically, what's not to like?

By all means get some rest time, and thanks for what you have done and are doing.

Bob.

That sounds like a great mix. There is a thread here if you want to share pics:

https://futures.io/off-topic/25917-bmt-members-dog-avatars.html

If I had more free time and a bigger house, I would probably get a 4th rescue lab. But this house is so tiny, it's the "post-divorce, change your life" house with no room to even turn around. And it sounds crazy to work from home and yet have no free time, but that is how things have become for me with futures.io (formerly BMT). Like I said earlier though, I've reached a bit of a limit, so I am scaling back so I can devote my time to my own life.

When I move (soon) I will have plenty of room, much more land, pool, and other dog-friendly accessories I look forward to it as well

A big thank you

Thank you Mike (and the community) for what you guys have done here. I am a new member to futures.io (formerly BMT) and the only regret I have was not discovering this forum at an earlier date.
The amount I am learning from this site is phenomenal and would far outweigh any expensive "trading course" out there in the market.

Hope you can keep on doing whatever you are doing and know that you are appreciated by the majority and ignore the naysayers!

Cheers,
Gerald

Thanks @Big Mike for another look behind the scenes. To be honest I dont know how you do it. Personally I tend to take things too personally to ever have the strength of will to put up with as much BS as you do.

I read the ripoff report that you posted and watched the youtube videos from that intellectually stunted individual. I had to stop 2mins into the second one before I lost any more of my life that ill never get back. Im sure this is just one of countless examples that you have to put up with.

It is sad that this is the world we live in. Not just in trading, but in all fields people will try to tear down what is good in order to uplift their own agendas. The way you handle it in terms of simply banning where necessary and leaving it at that (instead of publicly dragging them through the mud which they deserve), is further testament to the caliber of futures.io (formerly BMT) and yourself.

In the end, futures.io (formerly BMT) attracts quality traders (and aspiring traders) who will eventually find their way here. To the rest,...'I bite my thumb at thee'

Diversification is the only free lunch

Hey guys,

....

Mike

Seems a bit odd you could get such a label given the facilities they have to promote through webinars - and you offer them the forum to answer questions - very useful IMO - and better tahn banner ads everywhere.

Keep the good work up!

As for the $50 - personally, it's just an issue of the amount of time/value I get from any internet site. I dont spend a lot of time surfing on trading related info, I dont get much new from any internet site. 90% of traders are losers so why would I want to listen to them? Harsh but true I guess. There are a few of course who do add value - such as cashish.

$50 or $100 - It's peanuts to pay if you do get value I guess.

A bit embarrassed to admit that I've just discovered this thread from your futures.io (formerly BMT) Transparency and Facts thread. I took a long trade on futures.io (formerly BMT) and it continues to trend up! Thanks for all the background work you do BigMike, this is a unique place.
