Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

ZTR (Andy) is in the hospital again.

I've never met someone like ZTR before. He is going thru hell but determined to live, but not only that - he has a positive attitude to boot. Clearly it is "mind over matter" for ZTR, his strength comes from deep within, a place that most of us have never seen in ourselves.

Please send him your best warm wishes and prayers to help him get through this.

Andy saw things, he saw it his way, primarily, and he saw beautiful things especially. He lived on the edge, and for him, livin' was a real fine line. Don't ever want to lose the vision of my great friend Andy nor shall I. We can all be paranoid and delusional about certain little details within the facts, the technical stuff you know, but really what we all have in our trading minds is really just a silly linear or nonlinear perception of things, take out the ng and read backwards for instance. Well, nobody can copy that, everything changes. If you can keep seeing the truth in something, adapt, and roll with the punches, maybe you'll get tougher and meaner and leaner, but in the end, it's about the journey and not the destination. So make it yours and make the best of it. That's what he offered me in his great Wisdom and life on the very edge. I'll be seein' you Andy Brother. Missin' you man..

I share your sentiments and wording too.

Andy was able to take broken shards of pottery in all of us as traders and make us whole, and together we were able to carry volumes of water that none of us even dreamed were possible, but we aspired to do at some time.

His good works will go right along with him, as he awaits his calling too.

I am trying to type with tears in my eyes, on my hands and in my heart. I talked often with Andy, and did what I could to bear him up. We text messaged when we could, even the last posts were encouraging and inspiring to both of us, as we both took the approach of looking forward irrespective of the obvious. He did wonderfully, in surviving cancer and in participating on these threads, as a distraction from his health. To have survived so long and with such resolution and focus is a testament and tribute that is worthy of this memorial we have contributed to.

Thanks guys for expressing your sincere comments.
Thanks Richard / Zondor for your tireless care and help.
Thanks ChipolteBob, ZT, Zondor, Sykes, Gomi, and forgive me if I can't remember the others too.

We all come from such complex, compound and varying technical backgrounds and bring these skillsets towards our individual endeavours towards trading in the hope that we don't have to return to those careers. Big Mike's Forum has taken off like wild fire because it tapped into a niche of sophisticated retail investors who combine (at least, what they want to share and however much they wish to contribute and participate) their mind-share towards that goal of individual success. For that I solute you too.

These forums provided an amazing outlet for Andy to participate in his limited health conditions and when he could, go out for a spin on his motorcycle(s). These forums provided a means of interaction with so many others, and from that lofty perch he was able to assemble a group of outstanding bright lights / candles, as it were, and together we made some incredible discoveries and achievements possible, that simply would not have been possible otherwise. For that, again, I salute Andy!

We have all been honored to have known him, and to (whatever extent you have become familiar with his work and frequent published recorded events) have seen his work.

(all the best)

I rest easy knowing that (again, I say) his good works go right along with him!

I just noticed the RIP on Andy's avatar going through an old Sharky thread. He always helped me in
the past and I'm sorry to hear of his passing. I noted that he put up a hell of a fight.

Fair well, my friend.

I have been hibernating too long, and missed the unfortunate news I really liked your attitude towards everything.

Reading the news made me ponder about what is truly important in life.

Hope you are Riding in Peace, ZTR

Happened to chance upon an unrelated thread and saw that ZTR (as i know him in futures.io (formerly BMT)) had passed on.

Rest in peace, Andy. My condolences goes out to your family and your friends, even though I'm more than 4 months late.

I know this is very late but RIP Andy. It was not until recently that I've come across lots of his posts, thoughts and info and realized what a wonderful mind and generous soul we lost. My condolences to his family and friends.
