"am providing you a golden opportunity to ads whatever you like here...."

I appreciate the opportunity, BUT this is not our site or forum and I have gained the trust of guys here (I think) through the respect that I had for personal choices of traders. I always welcome the call of every potential prospect explaining the safe guards that were taken via our clearing. As for technology, we could set you up with any trading platform so you could see it yourself how the data feed functions.

Infinity Futures


jsouvertjis View Post
My trading funds are frozen with PFG. I had a couple people independently suggest opening an account with Infinity Futures. Does anyone have experience with Infinity Futures or could recommend a good futures broker?


I have my account with Infinity and thery are good. Well for now they are good. The did not take moy money yet.
I traded futures with Infinity, went to PFG to trade forex, when I decided to swing trade.
Now I'm deciding if I'll stay in business all together.

Gregory.

@mattz

a statement made by a vendor, particularly vendors appearing on bmt, ought to be more reliable and to carry more weight than most others appearing else where, where trading is not taken as seriously as here at bmt....

your statements such as the followings made in public in terms of self promotion:

1--....Go with brokers who invests in technology and execution....

2--....despite the fact that we have a better feed....?;

really need to be substantiated and ought to be able to prove to the satisfaction of most interested traders on board, don't you agree, mattz?

on the other hand, if you or your company is not able to respond to my following questions, whether or not related to pfg and others does not matter much, then

how could you expect potential customers/traders on board to believe what you said--to just tell inquiring traders to pls go to your official site for further info, is a cop-out and a major waste of traders time and effort, imho.


...We have at times lost customers to PFG because prospects were more familair with a company that plastered their ads in every hole possible., despite the fact that we have a better feed, better commissions, etc...


my questions are as follows, and if you are still not willing to answer them, that is alright with me too, for it is your right, K?

From your prior statement as vendor, i posted the following questions to you, not to give you a hard time or anything like that, but as a potential customer seeking a new broker and clearing house, hopefully much better than pfg.

i am quite certain there are also others, perhaps also--@jsouvertjis whose funds have also been frozen at PFG....; among numerous others who would also profit from your frank and to the point answers.... if you so wish.

Q1--and JUST HOW IS YOUR SIGNAL BETTER AND FASTER THAN, FOR EXAMPLE;

ESIGNAL'S AND

TRADING TECHNOLOGY'S.... for example....? and

2--do you have some special arrangements to have such exclusive signal arrangements, not available to other signal providers....?

3...better commissions, etc...?

just how much better are your comm than the rest of the markets, pls.....?

4--and how does your company accomplish such admirable attainment that other brokerages are not able to.... pls?

5--and the issue of deposits and on money safety issues and such....

HOW IS YOUR COMPANY SUPERIOR OR MORE SECURED THAN THE REST, pls?

thx much for your attention, mattz. and my apology to all, if i appear to be redundant.

< when there is no answer, the no answer can be taken as the answer itself, k? >

@nakachalet, I am quite sure that @mattz is not allowed to answer your questions here as he must not promote himself according to the rules here. Perhaps you could ask @mattz to reply via PM?

@nakachalet

@vvhg is right. I am sure @mattz would love nothing better than to talk to you at length about his company. But he is just respecting Big Mikes rules against vendors doing that in the forum. If Big Mike didn't have that rule, all the threads would be full of vendors ads instead of members posts.

Have him PM you, or chat online. I'm sure he will be glad to answer all your questions.

Have a great day!

TMFT

Please keep this thread focused on PFG.

There are other threads for other brokers.

Mike

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.
