futures io is the largest futures trading community on the planet, with over 90,000 members.

The community is one of the friendliest you will find on any subject, with members going out of their way to help others. Some of the primary differences between futures io and other trading sites revolve around the standards of our community. Those standards include a code of conduct for our members, as well as extremely high standards that govern which partners we do business with, and which products or services we recommend to our members.

At futures io, our focus is on quality education. No hype, gimmicks, or secret sauce. The truth is: trading is hard. To succeed, you need to surround yourself with the right support system, educational content, and trading mentors Ė all of which you can find on futures io, utilizing our social trading environment.

With futures io, you can find honest trading reviews on brokers, trading rooms, indicator packages, trading strategies, and much more. Our trading review process is highly moderated to ensure that only genuine users are allowed, so you donít need to worry about fake reviews.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading sites:
  • We are here to help. Just let us know what you need.
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive in our community.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendors advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, we can help you find it.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Hi TRO

One thing I've learned in life is when you try to "defend" the few who are a pain and say things, is you just in flame them. If you just walk away, and let good deeds speak for themselves, then the flamers will be ignored and/or others will defend you.

The problem is you over whelm the board with your "warfare". I am rapidly forming the opinion, that you weren't banned from other board, because your trading and education of traders was hurting peoples pocketbooks as much as the just plain got tired of your "woe is me" I will get banned because you don't like me crap.

There is a decision making tool, of taking a piece of paper, drawing a line on it, and putting both sides of a decision on it, and then outlining the pro's and cons to see which has more weight to it. In your case on one side is the educational benefit, the other side, the paranoia posts. Right now to me the educational benefits out weigh the negatives, and I would say to Mike, this guy is worth having here. But as this nonsense continues, the other side starts to build fast.

At the end, I would say to you, that you have been welcomed here, by the majority. Forget the minority, and leave all the other crap, behind. Otherwise you are making a self fulfilling prophecy.

Pete

Pete,

There is no "woe is me".

As I mentioned before, the reason I know about BIG MIKE TRADING FORUM is because SOMEONE POSTED LIES, HALF-TRUTHS, MISREPRESENTATIONS AND DISTORTIONS about me and one of my systems and I received a "DRAIN THE BANKS" google alert.

THAT'S THE TRUTH.

Obviously, I have proven myself to a few people on this board, yet there are still those who are trying to undermine me.

THAT'S THE TRUTH.


This is the OFF-Topic thread. This is the right place for this discussion. Having this thread does NOTHING to disrupt those focused on trading. If you are reading this, it is because YOU CHOOSE TO. NO ONE IS FORCING YOU TO READ THIS OR ANY OTHER THREAD ON THIS OR ANY OTHER FORUM. IT IS THAT SIMPLE.

THAT'S THE TRUTH.

I do not "overwhelm the board with my warfare". I fight where ever someone else starts the battle. I do not go looking for trouble. I came to BIG MIKE TRADING FORUM to defend myself and post the facts.

THAT'S THE TRUTH.

Rather than tell me what I should do, perhaps you should tell the others to BACK OFF. That would solve the problem. That would be fixing the problem at the SOURCE. I am NOT the instigator.

THAT'S THE TRUTH.

Peter, thanks for taking the time to post your feelings and views on this matter. I appreciate it.

Hi TRO

You can't control what others do, you can only control what you do.

You continually point out we need to open our eyes to see the simple truth of the markets, and you are right. Consider the same thing for yourself, in this situation.

Simply ignore the negative posters, and don't let them bother you. It ruly is that simple, and it works.

Pete

PS. Years ago a book by a fellow, I think his name was Robert Ringer, and the book was "Winning thru Intimidation" Overall not a great read, but in it he had one true pearl of wisdom.

"Reality isn't the way things should be, Reality isn't the way we want things to be, Reality is in fact the way things are." You are in essence saying this about trading. Well the reality is you can never fix the problem here at the source, you can only fix how you react. That is the reality.

Hey Peter:

Ringer is one of my favorites. His books are great. READ THEM!!

I have all of his books and have exchanged a few emails with him.

Had I ignored the negative posters, I wouldn't be here right now.... Hmmmm....

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

The RO,

You "fight where ever someone else starts the battle". You "do not go looking for trouble". You "came to BIG MIKE TRADING FORUM to defend myself and post the facts".

It should not take you too long for you to defend yourself and post the facts. I believe you have already achieved those objectives; you can therefore leave the forum and move on (this forum does not seem to want to be counted as one of the 'BANNING' forum); OR stay in the forum and put the fights and wars behind you and concentrate on what the forum is all about ---- TRADING !!!!

If some forum members have offended you, they should apologize and you gotta accept their apologies. If you have offended any member in this forum, learn to apologize to them. I have received an apology from a member who by mistake, offended me; and I have accepted the apology. This is the spirit in this forum; NOT WAR and FIGHTS.
