BMT is uncharacteristic of the trading community!

I registered originally on futures.io (formerly BMT) a looong time ago, but didn't really spend any time on futures.io (formerly BMT) until recently. I wished I would have made futures.io (formerly BMT) my main stay of education 2.5 years ago.

But I have been around the block on many other forums, and futures.io (formerly BMT) seems almost uncharacteristic of the rest of the trading community. By that I mean there seems to be a certain sense of "Sharing" that just doesn't exist anywhere else.

On most of the other forums, every once and a while you will see someone who seems interested in sharing things with others. But usually, there is always some caveat somewhere that you don't realize until you have already invested a lot of time in something. Wether it comes down to someone wanting to sell you something, or finding out that the person explaining something has never traded the method they portend to explain, but wish to keep whatever allegedly makes them profitable a big secret.

So, 'Respek' to those that help out.

Glad you like it here... just don't make the mistake of saying you are for or against "Big Gov'ment Entitlements" ... and you'll be fine...

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

Hail to the chief!

Great point Forrestang!

All the "Respek" goes directly to BigMike. He's really gifted with the type of leadership that makes this place comfortable compared to other forums.

It takes a huge effort on his part.

Thanks BigMike!

I hate to be a party spoiler, but all the reasonable and necessary caveats apply to this forum as much as they apply to many others. Always do your homework. No one here is really your friend, they are all strangers you probably never met in real life.

Rely on your intelligence more than on your emotions and you will do fine, on this or any other forum.

Just my 2 cents.

I've been at this a while, and have memberships on quite a few different trading forums, each one with several hundred posts probably.

Just so you know my opinions ARE NOT based on futures.io (formerly BMT) being my first stop with a trading forum along my path.

I agree with all you have said but would like to add that futures.io (formerly BMT) is pretty much devoid of what I like to call "guttersnipes" who seem to go out of thier way to attack or belittle or demean other members and/or thier posts. Critical review of topics or other members are not malicious or otherwise unnecessarily offensive It's a positive atmosphere here (due in large part to Mikes "hands on" involvement and vigilance) and is most certainly the best site I've seen am glad to be a part of

"Nerdy Nerdo" has been banned for signing up with fake info and via an anonymous proxy, both of which are not tolerated on futures.io (formerly BMT). He was likely here to cause trouble, and is now gone.
