priceless

members who cant afford the membership fee because of exchange rates should be given a opportunity to join. therefore those who propose a higher fee their excess can be used to help those traders.
for ex $100 = r1040 rand very tough for starting out south African traders to join...


this is the best forum out there

thank you to mike and all .

I've cruised by futures.io (formerly BMT) many times over the years but only recently signed up after a thread I was interested in had attachments I could not see. So far I've been impressed and would agree with Suko that

This forum has one of the best signal-to-noise ratios of any forum in any genre on the entire Net.

I do find though that a lot of threads I try to look at are Elite Only. Without having access to those threads it's difficult for me to know how valuable they may or may not be.

Interesting how you could place value on something that you don't have access to and are unable to appraise.

It seems to me the only way to really place value on it is to either be an Elite Member, or to look at what other Elite Members value it at.

makes the assumption that my interest's are similar to other Elite Members. Which may or may not be the case.

Saying that I'm considering joining. While $100 seems like quite a lot for something for which I don't know what I'm getting, it won't break the bank and if I do it buy it before year end, I can take it off my next years tax's.

Mike did you ever consider a free trial? Probably couldn't be a time based trial because people could look at everything in a short period of time. So maybe a thread based free trial? Get to see X threads for a week? Might increase the number of people that pay up for the Elite Membership.

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.

Priceless

After spending so much money on different vendors I must say that futures.io (formerly BMT) is priceless!!!

If only I knew about futures.io (formerly BMT) five years ago I would probably saved thousands of dollars...

Just to clarify, I am not exploring any option involving increasing the price. This was just a feedback poll/thread.

Although I will state, and have said before in the other threads about transparency and facts and such, that the entire Elite Member philosophy is in fact to keep the "problem" users out and keep the signal-to-noise ratio low, so that ultimately the ones that are here want to be here, have a stake of ownership in the communities survival, and therefore treat it, and its members, with respect.

Thx.

Mike

Do you offer temporary Elite memberships?

If not, perhaps you could, say $5/$10 for 10 days access but no downloads during that time. There are probably many who might be interested but want to see it first.

Mike, this clarification might have changed my response of $100 to priceless.

$50 is a very reasonable Life Time Membership fee but it still took me a while to cough it up. VERY GLAD I DID!

Just one Indicator is worth that membership and I have downloaded MANY. This also allowed me to figure out how to do rudimentary modifications of Indicators so they fit my style better.

I think perhaps you should think about raising the price to $75 rather than $100 since you are putting in so much effort. The comments about people whom cannot afford it probably is irrelevant - without $75 to invest in learning investing, you should rethink your interest in the first place.

One unfortunate consequence of membership is that I spend an inordinate amount of time DAILY reading these threads. And I primarily reading about six standard threads daily even though I am following close to 50.

I have recommended the site to many other traders including on Ninja Trader Forum and will continue to do so.

THANKS FOR YOUR EFFORTS MIKE. Good trading all!
