This is an awesome site. Although I just recently discovered it is now my "daily driver". Thanks to Big Mike for creating it and @Fat Tails for your contributions (and those of the many others that I have seen).

May the force be with you.

Thanks for all you do.

To Fat Tails, and all that give their time and expertise freely and unselfishly to us all, all I can ask the the good Lord is to reward you accordingly, and may the saying "The more you give, the more you receive" hold true in your lives.

Congrats FatTails, and thanks so much for sharing your expertise, trading experience and indicator research on futures.io (formerly BMT). Like TMFT mentioned , your indicator code are great examples to learn about NT coding. As well as effective tools in trading.

I'm too want to thank Fat Tails for his work and also for his humor. He gaved us the ana's and visual's and since then I finally make some money and I can't imagine working without them.
I hope he stays well for the future so we can see more of his great work.

I'm also want to thank futures.io (formerly BMT), he gaved us a great, clean and organized website (and Fat Tails).

Fat Tails

Thank you very much - Vielen Vielen Dank - Muchisimo Gracias

Fat Tails belongs to a rare breed, he is knowledgeable and willing to share this knowledge, these two traits are seldom found in a single person. Furthermore he is one of the most generous people I have come across here!
As if that wasn't enough, he is spitting out the most beautiful code like a machine, anyone who had the joy to read some code written by him, knows he is a literary genius.

As it is clearly impossible to unite all this in a single person, he must either have multiple personalities or be some kind of superior being.
As his appearance here in deed seems to be very homogenous, I come to the conclusion it must be the latter....

Fat Tails, a big THANK YOU for having you on futures.io (formerly BMT)!

Prolonging Fat Tails honor thread

Quick wits, excellent mathematical and statistical background and as I read here - genius coding capabilities

These are three gems together one finds rarely on the net! Congrats to @Fat Tails!

As I do not want to hold a 15 minute laudatio here in german - I want to send you one burning question:
What is most important for you if you have to chose one:
1) trading live on your own
2) coding a new indi
3) commenting here on futures.io (formerly BMT)

I think I can feel the answer ;-)

DANKE und GoForIt!


Maybe Big Mike invents a new special award for the longest honor thread? ("LHT award"?)
