If it did not come from donotreply@bigmiketrading.com, with our DKIM signature (check your mail client), then it isn't from us.

You can send me a screenshot of what it looks like to my PM and I will let you know.

Mike

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.

OK I looked at it. This appears legit. This is not a private message. It's an "email". If you have the option "Allow users to email me" on in your profile, then users can send you an email vs a private message. Your email address is not revealed to them, rather they type their message while on futures.io (formerly BMT), and the futures.io (formerly BMT) servers send it to you.

Honestly, I don't even think the feature is very useful, I can't imagine people really purposely wanting to use it over a private message. I might disable it now that I think about it.

Anyway, people should always be extremely cautious when dealing with any emails. Especially if an email has links that ask you to login (user credentials, passwords) those are highly suspect, and it is how people get phished (info stolen). That is not the case with what you sent me, it was just a guy asking about an indicator. But nonetheless, always be careful.

I went ahead and just disabled the option to email other users. It seems redundant vs the option to private message someone, which sends them an email anyway.
