So I am a bit biased, which is why I need your input on this --- now that our name reflects professionalism and reflects your trading career and/or favorite hobby, would you guys like to see some branded items such as hats, polos, coffee mugs and the like with our name on it?

Would you wear or use such things, or would they just go in a closet or on a shelf?

Mike

Sorry, on a shelf.

Nothing against the site name, I just don't wear/use branded stuff.

Bob.

I don't care for those things but I am a sucker for morale patches. Have you thought of a slogan? Something that is concise and kicks ass. Kind of like some of the quotes that show up on the home page (I like "Those who know get paid by those who don't.") You probably don't want to use someone else's quote, but something along those lines.

Someday, and that day may never come, I'll call upon you to do a service for me.

I have not. Feel free to create a new thread here in the Feedback section and we'll see if the community can jointly come up with a great slogan(s).

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.
6)

Sorry - no. Not even on a shelf.

You have one customer here for a coffee-mug or two, and willing to pay for international shipping (especially if they feature that nice Molly); but I suspect you'll need a hundred more, to make it worth having them made?

I think the initial cost is probably quite a big deal, with that kind of the thing, whereas the run-on cost is negligible by comparison?

Coffee Mugs

First of all - very well done on the name change!

I would definitely buy a coffee mug (or two).

How about mouse pads?? I'd likely get a couple of those.

I was thinking mouse-pads as well, but (a) those are generally freebies, so probably very hard to sell, and (b) I think more and more people have "mice" that don't need pads, one way or another, these days?

3rd party orgs exist where you, as the owner of the artwork, provide the digital image to the 3rd party. The 3rd party does all the manufacturing and shipping. This is how photography sites work... the photographer supplies the digial media, the end user customer orders directly from the 3rd party. See Zenfolio as example. I am not affiliated with them, just used them to set up a site for my photo nutt brother using them...

Long live Futures IO

I would give a bunch of them away, I'm not worried about minimum quantities if there is enough actual interest in using the products and not just shelving them.
