Hey guys,

I want to put together several polls in the coming weeks so that in December everyone can cast their votes for the "best of trading", a series that I intend to hold each year going forward.

I will then place these polls on the forum home pages during December and will update this thread with the results at the end of the year.

Here are some categories I've identified so far:
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Member Of The Year
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Indicator Of The Year
  • Best Futures Broker
  • Best Forex Broker
  • Best Stocks Broker
  • Best Futures Data Feed
  • Best Futures Trading Platform
  • Best Forex Trading Platform
  • Best Stocks Trading Platform
  • Best Free Trading Room Service
  • Best Trade Management/Journal Software

1) If I have missed some important categories please let me know.

2) Please use this thread to start submitting nominees for each category.

I will have our graphics design guy create a set of trophies for each category.

Hi Mike,

Good idea.

But why have you not included a category for 'Paid For' Trading Rooms?

I appreciate issues about promoting commercial vendors, but you do have categories for best broker and best data feed etc which are commercial endeavours.

That's what this thread is for -- I'll listen to everyones comments for new categories and in the case of a paid trading room category, I'll read everyone's posts that are for or against the idea.

Thanks for your post.

[*]futures.io (formerly BMT) Member Of The Year----> Fat Tails
he has contributed to this community in a BIG way by developing and sharing indicators that are GREAT for reference areas (regardless of specific methods) and adding labels and visual references helping make our charts more SIMPLE to read.

[*]futures.io (formerly BMT) Member Of The Year----> ZTR
he has contributed with his big knowledge on price reading, shared a lot of videos trying to show us how he reads the DOM and he is a live example and motivation of how to fight with adverstity (and possitive attitude), which is something we experience in trading since we start on this business.

[*]futures.io (formerly BMT) Indicator Of The Year---> BSV39 , a GREAT tool to visualize Buying / Selling Preassure
[*]futures.io (formerly BMT) Indicator Of The Year---> Volume Ladder (nothing to say, it speaks by it self)

Be interested to see the paid room that does the best marketing (cherry picking winners etc, most logical approach). Also a tally of which paid rooms traders fell for but didn't work for them.. I have several to contribute..

Thanks, but I do not really program:

I just pester others with my bad coding until they get me an Indy/GUI like I want.

That is shameless. Your exploit honest guys like Zondor and then just present those wonderful charts, so everybody thinks that you have created them. And now you are close to becoming the futures.io (formerly BMT) programmer of the year. Yep, I will vote for you!

Against. Multitude of reasons.


Big Mike View Post


That's what this thread is for -- I'll listen to everyones comments for new categories and in the case of a paid trading room category, I'll read everyone's posts that are for or against the idea.

Thanks for your post.

Mike


I vote for best paid trading room as well.

Great idea with this survey / vote Mike,
I would stay away from the "Best Paid for Trading Room" category for many reasons as well.
At least for the next ten to twenty years or so, and then re-evaluate it.
"Best Free Trading Room" should work I think.
It will be interesting to see the results.
Thanks
Ron

Hi Mike,

Good idea.

But why have you not included a category for 'Paid For' Trading Rooms?

I appreciate issues about promoting commercial vendors, but you do have categories for best broker and best data feed etc which are commercial endeavours.

___________________________
i agree with Steve on this.

many "for pay" trading rooms have merit and are worth mentioning to get feedback from members who have used them as a means of gauging their subjective worth.
i would like to hear from other members about their experiences using the rooms.

but if this idea is included there needs to be subcategories because some rooms trade only eminis while other trade stocks, etc.

Starting on Wednesday Dec 1st, there will be multiple polls on the site to let you guys vote in each of the categories. I have used the nominations you made here, as well as added several of my own.

The voting will continue until Dec 31st, and the winners will be announced January 1st.

More details to come in a couple days.

"Merit" is a broad term thats needs to be defined into smaller units ie: most seemingly logical approach, most entertaining(yes there are some good ones who make it fun to lose ur money,most obnoxious ,did I make money, most hocus pocus?...

Overall no room can beat the 95% loser, of ur money odds, if thats the only measure, this will be a short or no list..
Those running the room have better odds.

here is my greatest

most entertaining: " Billy" IOAM

most seemingly logical approach: backtothefuture

most expensive: Viper

least expensive: Woodies CCI

biggest dud: Felton trading, TradeMaven

most obnoxious : any room with a "BRIT" or pet trader

Wow, thanks for the awards, guys, I am very deeply honored...

Unfortunately, next year is, again, "stop coding start trading year" and I intend to stick to it so I hope the coding stuff will come to an end :-)

Happy new year to everybody, with a special thought to ZTR.

Hello Guys and Gals of futures.io (formerly BMT),

I just wanted to post a thank you for the two futures.io (formerly BMT) 2010 Best of Trading Awards. It is truly an honor.

I feel a combination of pride in the accomplishment and humility knowing that so many of my fellow traders hold my work on the forum in high regard.

These awards are especially meaningful considering the high quality of the participants on the Big Mike Forum.

So......let's raise a glass and toast to another great year of trading and to the futures.io (formerly BMT) forum.

Jeff

Hello everybody,

thank you very much for the two awards. I am glad that some of my contributions were useful to others and that I was allowed to hand back something in return for the tools, knowledge, and experience that are available here.

The single most important reason that I am an active user is the familiarity that has itself established between the members. Big Mike's is simply more personal and more fun than any other trading forum.

A big thank you to @Big Mike for his active and personal involvement, which makes this forum outstanding.

My personal vote for the futures.io (formerly BMT) member of the year went to Andy. Although I never understood, how he managed to read the DOM, he impressed me with his attitude and courage. I will remember him.
