Big Mike Challenge - Win a iPad or tablet...

I'm starting a new contest for March! It will begin March 1st and end March 31st.

The prize will be your choice of one of the following tablets:
  • Apple iPad
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab
  • Viewsonic G-Tablet
  • Archos Tablet
  • Dell Streak

Basically, I will pay up to $600 for whatever tablet you want, or if you want a $400 tablet and $200 cash that is fine with me. If you want a $0 tablet and $600 cash that is fine with me. If you want me to donate it to charity, that is fine with me. If you want a $2000 tablet then I can give you $600 and you can chip in the rest and get exactly what you want, etc. I like to list specific prizes because it gets more people interested

Note: I've listed example tablets above that I believe are less than $600. If I've screwed up and listed a $2000 tablet above, it was just a mistake, as the contest max-prize amount is $600. The price is based on US pricing, so if a $600 tablet in the US costs $5000 in Europe, the best I can do is PayPal you $600 USD.

To be eligible for the prize, you must:
  • Be a current futures.io (formerly BMT) member as of March 1st 2011.
  • Have a Trading Journal on futures.io (formerly BMT).
  • Make one post per day, every day, Mon-Fri, in your trading journal for the entire month of March.
  • That post at minimum must contain one screen shot or video (youtube, etc) of your trades (sim or cash).
  • That post at minimum must contain a summary of your trading day, like a description of trades and how you did for the day, your strengths and weaknesses, etc. There must be some content in the post.
  • The post must be made on futures.io (formerly BMT), not a link to your blog or other off-site location. You can post the summary content on futures.io (formerly BMT) but embed a YouTube video, that is fine.
  • You must post pretty much every single day to the journal. Don't skip a few days and then post all at once.
  • futures.io (formerly BMT) Admins are excluded, but futures.io (formerly BMT) Moderators can participate if they wish.

As of today, there are approximately 30 journals being updated on a daily basis on futures.io (formerly BMT). That gives you pretty awesome odds to win a $600 tablet!

The winner will be chosen by me, Big Mike. I'll be looking for a complete, quality journal with high quality content posts when deciding the winner. All decisions final. Void where prohibited

If you already have a journal prior to March 1st, feel free to keep posting to it. You don't need to start a new one. If you don't yet have a journal on futures.io (formerly BMT), or you want to use this opportunity for a fresh start, then create your new journal on or before March 1st and start posting!

I'll announce the winner around the first week of April. As for delivering the prize to the winner, we will work it out and find a way. I can buy it for you if you are in the US, or I can just PayPal you the money and you can buy it directly.

You guys are welcome to use this thread to talk about the journals and the contest.

Good luck! I look forward to reading the journals!

Last --- do me a favor, tell all your friends about our contest and encourage them to come to futures.io (formerly BMT) and create their own journal.

Mike

If you trade 4 out of 5 days, I'm not going to disqualify you. You could make a post every day, and just put "No trades today". But I won't be giving away a $600 tablet to a journal full of "No trades today" posts

I want everyone who maintains a journal to have a chance to win. So Andrew, I encourage you to give it your best shot!

I appreciate it Mike. But, for example, I won't be able to trade any of the 4 days next week due to the day job. And I have streaks like that coming up in March also. So no problem.

Andrew

PS If the schedule changes then I'm all in!

Yes, it isn't about proof of live or sim or actual trades. I just want people to post a complete journal and talk about their trades.
