What is the main purpose to ask the occuring questions from time to time

HI

I am really wondering what the main purpose is of that ever new occurring new questions in the the gray box on the right side of the forum when coming on to it.

Why do you ask this questions?

- Are there any advertisement reasons behind it?

- Is the forum paid for such questions?

- Any other valuable reason behind it which could bring any market advantage to the individual trader or just an other way of spying what retail traders are doing?

Are you asking about polls?


I can't answer for Big Mike but just a comment that some forums allow member created polls, not sure if that is the case here or has been considered...

Yeah Big Mike, wtf? I'm certain the 30-50 responses each one gets is worth millions to the right company. I feel so used.

If you mean the polls, they are just questions I come up with. No I am not paid to ask these questions.

If you don't think there is value in the poll, don't vote on it -- or stop coming to the site if you don't want to see it...

Why create a thread just to complain about it? I work very hard to keep things positive here and to build a community, and there are a lot of people that support that way of thinking. The people that like to complain and cause trouble for the sake of complaining and causing trouble are not welcome here.

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)

LOL. Here is a sample of recent polls, it seems this guy is just making trouble where none exists.

Because heaven forbid I ask the community what they view as important, to help shape future webinars or forum discussions in order to help people... my real motives have been revealed, Microsoft paid me to start a Browser poll, and the NFL paid me to predict the outcome of the Super Bowl!

Why get angry about a question which occurs when seeing this pools? Nobody just ask questions for fun. There is a resaon why and that was the simple question from my side.

As far as I can see: Nobody ever questioned the quality of the forum or your personal work. As far as I also can see, that is not to find in any question of mine.

spying what retail traders are doing?

Delta_Panther

I agree. This is spying from the first degree!
In fact, I think that Mosad, ex KGB agents, and CIA are constantly on this forum.
AND they are all here to copy your magical Algo.

Seriously....out of all the good things here you decide to focus on the surveys.
I see that them as a decoration ornament, nothing more...
Even for me as a broker after so many years in this business I have learned so much about trader's needs, I cant even begin to tell you. Focus on the good! please.

PM with any questions about optimusfutures (800) 771-6748 (561) 367 8686. THERE IS A SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS IN FUTURES TRADING.

I dont think BM has a alterior motive,he is just keeping the place active....positive,thought provoking.

Trust me this place is way better than other sites and they way they operate and the things that admin do.
Always something new to learn with the seminars and some sharp cookies to answer ones questions.
