Hi Big Mike,
I listened carefully to the webinar and actually you did not mention from which company you lease you remote server (you read this question at the end saying that you had discussed it earlier).
Could you share with us please?

Philippe

Dedicated servers from Steadfast. You can also rent VPS's from @sam028 as he offers VPS to futures.io (formerly BMT) users, he uses Steadfast but will be cheaper than a dedicated server.

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)

One More vote for the VPS from @sam028. I took the trial test and loved it. I will be renting one just as
soon as I am ready to return to live trading. @sam028 is pleasant and helpful also.

Hi,

If you want a VPS with no specific co-location requirement (*), you can also have a look at OVH in a near future. They are settling in North America. I have been using them in France for 8 months (**). Quite nice.

Nicolas

(*) I mean: you want something reliable and fast, but you are not specifically performing high frequency trading requiring to be as close as possible to the exchange.

(**) I have all my trading applications on the VPS (feed, platform, broker, etc.), and not on my personal computer.

First off, I must say THANK YOU!!! This webinar has been a tremendous help as I begin my trading career...

Quick question, where can I find the remaining videos in the series? Didn't see them under the Webinar section and wasn't sure if I missed them.

Thanks again Mike!

Hi Mike

I have a lot of problems for watching this particular video with FFox or Chrome

I can see no more than 5 minuts, starting form the beggining or even in the middle

does not matter, the video freezes. I had a similar problem with Perry's Method Video.

Is there a way to download it and watch offline ? I suppose the problem is the server, I

don't have problems with other webminars.

Thanks.

Make sure you are using the latest version of Flash, and disable any third party add-ons or blockers on your browser. You might also try from a different location (home vs work or vice versa).

This particular video is on our YouTube channel.

Hi guys,

I want to announce that "Where to start as a trader (Part II: Trading Platforms)" will occur on Thursday, January 17th @ 4:30 PM Eastern US.

Yes I realize it has been a whole year later. My bad.

But the important thing is, we can move forward to Part II now. I will be putting together a presentation that talks about how to select a trading platform when you really aren't sure where to start. I am going to try to do my absolute best to be impartial and just demonstrate the facts about different platform choices, and why one platform might be better than another depending on your trading style and your own requirements.

If anyone has any particular items they would like for me to focus on in "Part II: Trading Platforms", please post to this thread so I can consider it as I create the material.

I will open up registrations for the webinar as we get closer to the date.

Mike

Hi,

I want to ask if theres a platform out there that caters to the price action trader. Most offer very sophisticated stuff that a price action trader dont use.

Thanks
