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, but no thanks from me as well.

I am very selective as to who I tell what I do for a profession - too many people just do not understand.

Half kidding here, but in some countries it maybe even deemed to be advertising an activity (trading) that is strictly controlled - not sure if there is enough room on the cap and mug for the CFTC wording as well as futures.io

In order to try and minimize this as much as I can, I will be sending out a mass email to every single member advising them of our name change. That email will contain their username, and advise them they will need to login again, and the instructions should they have forgotten their password.

Mike

Just FYI - I never got any email about this (yes I checked Spam). Might be due to the communication/subscription settings I have. But then there maybe lots of other members who have the same communication settings who also won't have got the email.

It is due to your settings, you disabled announcement emails.

Earlier today I sent a site-wide email notice, everyone should have received it (or will receive it today) unless they've marked us as spam or unsubscribed in the past.

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)

Great news @BigMike. I saw the logo changes and I thought its dues to BMT V5.0.

@Big Mike

I also noticed the logo change on Chrome Browser tabs (ie on the tab headers themselves) at least a day before you made the announcement.

Not that it matters now - just an FYI.

Yup, I snuck it in a little early, I don't think it gave anything away as to what was really coming

The new favicon is much better, yes?

Why make a new Twitter? Why not keep the followers you had and just rename it and put in new profile and cover photos?

Hi Mike,
Just finished viewing the Blown up. Done with trading YouTube video. Great Stuff and love your comments! I do hope you will be doing videos like this one more often. Thank you!

Feedback on the name and the direction?

I like the new name and logo, and it does seem like the majority of content and users focus on futures. Although I would have been just as pleased with trading.io, or something similar.

The name change

Yes Big Mike sounded a little red neck and unpolished. So a the new name probably suite the nature of the website better. So I am for it
