I second that vote. I have been impressed by Spartacus's journal. Very thorough analysis and clear explanations.

I vote Mike's journal

The method is simple and clear, also Mike is very nice to help people, he knows futures.io (formerly BMT) is a big family, we love to learn each other, the important qualification of this prize is how the owner of journal help others. Mike is.

I'm a big fat liar.

I am having a very hard time picking just one journal!! I don't want my selection of only one journal discourage all the others who have worked so hard at improving their trading and bearing all to see. This is making me put off this decision.

I'm trying to evaluate impartially -- looking at how things like group participation in the journal, looking at how much info was shared and what avenues used (videos, screen shots, spreadsheets), looking at the popularity based on number of views by futures.io (formerly BMT) members, looking at how the poster evolved over the period and learned from the journey... and so much more.

A very, very tough decision for me. When we do this again I am putting the voting on you guys

I need another day or two. I've been reading threads like crazy but am far behind on my forum duties due to my broken hand, it makes things like typing this reply take 10 minutes instead of only 1.

I'll be back very soon. I know this has to be done -- can't put it off, and hopefully whichever winner is selected you all understand just how proud and amazed I am at everyones contributions!!

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


As I said in my last post, this was an incredibly difficult decision! So many fantastic journals, so many great journeys, so much shared, so much learned...

But I had to pick a single winner. And I have.

Before I reveal the winner, I just want to say how awesome it has been reading all of your journals. I am so incredibly impressed with you guys, and I feel really great that this contest has helped encourage you to do something that will almost certainly improve your trading. So a feel good moment for me

We will absolutely do this again. And I plan to award more than one prize next time.

And the winner is... @MWinfrey!

https://futures.io/elite-trading-journals/8035-mwinfreys-5-minute-odyssey.html

MWinfrey's journal is full of great information. He has shared everything about his method, rules, and actual trades along the way. He has learned much from his journey, and I believe he has also educated many others at the same time, giving them the benefit of his knowledge and experience. His journal also had more group participation than any other.

Fantastic job, Mike! Send me a PM and let me know which way you want to go on your $600 prize.

Cory, I think it is pretty clear from post #1 as well as my last several posts about how this one worked and how future ones will work.

Well done to MWinfrey!

But also, well done to Big Mike. To set up this great forum and encourage those starting out to journal is very generous of you, personally I've been inspired by that and the great spirit of community here. I think I have found a new direction in life as a result of being encouraged to start the journal and also the help available on this forum, and I hope many others have gained as much as I have.
