Why Elite?

I see the price is at $100/mo, I thought it was at $50 a few weeks ago. I don't think it's been adequately explained why some posts / downloads are only accessible to Elite members. I had read it was due to prevent indicators from being widely disseminated..but lots of good posts seem Elite only. Please explain why this is, then I will gladly subscribe if this is adequately explained.

Elite membership is a one time fee of $100.00, not an ongoing monthly fee. You will find nothing better!!!

@trs3042

Elite membership of futures.io (formerly BMT) requires little explanation. It's a no-brainer IMO. Look around and you'll soon realize what you're missing. Good luck.

You don't know what you don't know.
Pay the $100.00 one time fee and access everything. In all the trading resources on the internet, this is THE place to be to access Elite journals of successful (and not) traders, access indicators that provide same functionality that you might pay $$$ for elsewhere, get answers to questions from people who actually do know. Like the dude said, it's a no brainer....

If money were as easy to make on the market as it is to lose I wouldn't be as tight with my gelt.

Your comments suggest the indicators are the main appeal of the subscription...most of the best traders I know of have a KISS attitude to indicators.

Your skepticism about paying is exactly why it is worth the money. It is a filter. Those not serious, don't pay.

............... the indicators are the main appeal of the subscription...


I've been an elite member since I signed up and have never looked at the "indicator" section, I probably couldn't figure out how to download one anyway. But I guarantee you it is cyber Heaven for any indicator junkie that happens to be into that sort of thing. If you're NOT an elite member your experience here will be limited, for example you won't be able to post in the Chat Rooms (albeit, few do).

IMO this ain't about Getting something it's about Supporting something. Have you ever found a topic on another forum that you actually had an interest in and began reading only to find yourself sifting through post after post of total garbage unrelated to the original subject matter,,, you won't find that here. This site sells itself, take some time to look around. I believe the most obvious difference you will notice between this forum and any other (that I've visited) is, rude behavior is not tolerated. For me, the civility here makes visiting this forum and reading the posts much more enjoyable, this is why I chose to support Big Mike's.

Maybe the Holy Grail is in the indicator section (I heard it was) and I'm missing out on an untold fortune, so be it. I like to think of Big Mikes Forum as a book, a book that is never finished, a book that anyone can write in. New chapters are added every day and new paragraphs and pictures (charts) are added to existing chapters as well. For the one time price of a singe trading book, not only do I get updated content by countless authors, I get direct access to each of them. In my opinion That is Worth Supporting.

Good points. No one addressed the 100% Elite member price increase rolled out recently.

I'm clearly in the minority and I respect the way things are done here. However I believe strongly in the concept of open information on the internet. I'd rather buy a Big Mike Trading coffee cup and t-shirt and have all the threads open.

Being elite is not about getting the cool indicators or reading elite journals; its about getting on the path to becoming a professional trader. Took me a while to figure that out. Want proof? look no further than @Big Mike signature on his posts. 1 thru 4 is the foundation you need to become a successful trader.

@KosherTrader

This happened in July. He sent out a email to everyone on futures.io (formerly BMT) notifying them of the price increase. He has recently upgraded the servers and made numerous changes to improve quality over the past couple of years. Basically the price increase is to cover the cost of doing business.

If you go the route of free then you get spam 300 times a day and 50 advertisements on every page trying to sell you the holy grail trading system. Personally I will take the paid version.

I will say this; Knowing what I know now about what futures.io (formerly BMT) has to offer, I would say, and I am probably low balling it, 300 to 500 is a fair price for what you get. I would pay it now if he asked. Its worth every dime. I have learned more here in 2.5 years than I had in the previous 8 years of trading.
