BIG MIKE TRADING 1-YEAR ANNIVERSARY




THIS THREAD WILL BE FOR THE PRIZES "TEN COMMISSION FREE TRADES FROM MIRUS FUTURES." WE WILL BE GIVING AWAY TEN OF THESE, FOR A TOTAL OF 100 COMMISSION FREE TRADES IN ALL.

As mentioned in the main thread here, our 1-year anniversary is this June and to celebrate we are giving away over $4,000 worth of prizes!

futures.io (formerly BMT) owes its success in large part to you. Over the past year, you guys have contributed great content to the site... and in that spirit, we are going to ask you contribute just a little bit more in order to win this prize!

To enter the drawing, simply post a reply to this thread. Important: your reply needs to be creative! Don't just reply with something plain or basic. There is no particular topic that we are going to specify for you, but the prizes will be awarded based on the creativity of your reply to this thread. In other words, the better your reply is, the more likely it will be selected as the winner. Please don't ask for guidance, we are leaving this up to your judgment and asking you to be creative!



Eligibility and rules:

- You must be a registered member (it's free, it just means you've signed up and created a username on our site).

- Both new and existing Mirus Futures customers are eligible. Once you place ten new trades, Mirus Futures will rebate them back to you. Exchange fees are not included in the prize.

- You may enter only once per prize/thread (once for this exact prize). You can enter to win the other prizes in the other threads as well, but you can only win the exact same prize once. It is possible that you win more than one different prize from more than one thread.

- There will be no substitutions of prizes. If you do not wish to accept the prize, it will be forfeit.

- The moderating staff at futures.io (formerly BMT) will select the winners. Again, the winners will be selected based on the creativity of the reply. In the event of a tie, Big Mike will make the final decision. Big Mike has the final say over the outcome of the drawing and the awarding of all prizes.

YOUR ENTRY (REPLY) MUST BE RECEIVED BY JUNE 25TH 2010.
WE WILL ANNOUNCE THE WINNERS BETWEEN JUNE 26TH AND JUNE 30TH.

Thx and good luck!
Mike

Mirus Futures in my broker of choice because...


I am the type of person who researches the crap out of everything. If itís on the net I can find it. I also make my decisions based on my intense research. The search for a futures broker was no different. Being the millionaire NOT that I am, start up and ongoing costs were a primary concern for me. Commission costs, software costs, data access costs, hidden help line costs , on and on and on, one really needs to read the confusing fine print (if you can find it). After reviewing I dare say 20+ brokers I went with Mirus. Simple and no nonsense, with easy to understand pricing. I obtained a demo account and I was up and running in no time. Technical support is quick and efficient. I even have direct access to a real person if needed Ė and he answers the phone. Iíve even gotten responses from him in the off hours. Both tech support and my account contact work in concert, the both know of my concerns and follow through. Stability, my Zenfire access from Mirus works rock solid with my Ninja platform - most impressive during the flash crash. This organization has been nothing but professional, treating me like the millionaire I know I will be one day. I recommend these guys to anyone who is serious about getting into this line of work, be it for making a living or just as a lucrative hobby.

I started out only reading the contributions of everyone here on futures.io (formerly BMT). CunParis gave the confidence to post. After starting my own thread, I began to understand that maturing in trading is much like maturing in life. Its a journey of self discovery, peeling your own onion. Each layer reveals more truth about yourself. Without knowing the core of yourself, your inner values, needs, desires, fears, pleasures, you will not succeed long term in this business. I cannot hide behind my ego. I must be openly honest with myself by being honest to you all.

thank you Big Mike for futures.io (formerly BMT)!

10 Free Mirus Trades

Since I'm already a Mirus user, that would be like a winning ES trade. Have you ever noticed they continue to charge commissions, even when you have a losing trade, just adding insult to injury?
