Thanks Mike

Thank you for doing this. I was not aware of the suicide rate and was shocked and appalled. I donated to Wounded Warrior Project today.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far or signed up as a new Elite Member.

I still see a lot of non-Elite members, I would like feedback so I can improve future fundraisers -- are you not signing up because you don't agree with this fundraiser, or because you don't have the $100 to spend?

When I've donated Elite Memberships in the past we had much better turn out/response, so I'm looking for advice as to why.

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.

If you're already an elite member...


Hi Mike,

Thank you for reminding us of the importance of remembering the sacrifices others have made for us. As they say, freedom ain't free.

Thanks also for suggesting a way for us to express our gratitude to those who have done so much, both family & friends we know, as well as the larger veteran community.

I'm an already an elite member, so I went ahead and donated to several charities I found here: CharityWatch Top-Rated Charities - Veterans and Military

I hope everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend,

-Bob

Hi Mike,
Thanks for doing the fundraiser and Happy Memorial Day! I just signed up for Elite membership (after a month of browsing the boards). I'm not sure why others haven't signed up to be elite yet, but maybe it is because there is so much information to digest. Signing up for elite might also represent the first material commitment a newbie makes towards becoming a trader...at least it is for me. So it's less about the $100 and more about a promise to self (at least it is for me). Thanks for providing such a great resource.
Sidney

ps. I would like my membership fee to go to the Wounded Warrior Project, thanks.

Thanks for the reminder of the valiant who might have been forgotten

Hi Mike,

Please earmark my Elite Subscription for the Wounded Warrior Project, unless there is another cause in need of more urgent funds. Thanks so much.

Why the low turn-out?

Hey, Mike!

From a marketing perspective, I think you hit us on this last-minute deal on short notice, while most Americans are on their long, holiday weekend. Maybe next year, you can alert everyone of the upcoming special when non-elite members are still around.

Would you please change my UN to: MarthaChiriboga ?

(it's 15 characters, per requested)



Another alternative would be to extend the special past Monday and until 1 June, 2014.

Best,
Martha

Hi guys,

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the fundraiser, either directly (existing Elite Members) or indirectly via the new membership promotion.

Together we raised $2,800.00 via futures.io (formerly BMT) for this fundraiser.


Wounded Warriors: $1,500
Disabled American Vets: $600
United Services Organization: $700
-----
Total raised: $2,800


You guys make futures.io (formerly BMT) what it is today! I am very proud of what we have accomplished.

Mike
