BMT members from 2009-10 – how many of you are still in the game?
futures.io (formerly BMT) members from 2009-10 – how many of you are still in the game and are successful traders?
Recently I’ve spend some time browsing the futures.io (formerly BMT) site and it’s struck me the number of traders that simply stopped posting – so I was just wondering from all of the 2009-10 futures.io (formerly BMT) members how many of you are still trading.
Are you profitable?
Can you share your insight how do you stay afloat?
Looking at the database, approximately 50% are still active.
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.

Thanks Mike, but I’m more considering this thread as a survey and not as hard stats. So, if it’s OK with you (if not please delete this post) -- if any futures.io (formerly BMT) member would like to participate here (including you Mike) please go along with the following scheme:
1.) Member since:
2.) Male or female:
3.) Last year (2011) wins:
a) Below $0
d) $25,000- $100,000
e) Over $100,000
4.) Your trading skills level:
a) Non (if you’ve just started, or just observing)
d) Somewhat top
e) I could also put TOP – but I don't think anyone could achieve that in trading
5.) What is your biggest strength to stay afloat?
Here are mine as an example, although I’m not a member from the 2009-10 years:
1.) Member since: Jan, 2012
2.) Male or female: M
3.) Last year (2011) wins: a)
4.) Skill level: b)
5.) Trading less; observing and learning from others
--Optional if you want to explain:
I’ll never stop learning and there is a lot to learn so will be unfair for me to say that I’ve reached intermediate or somewhat top level.
