@kronie reminded me we are less than 30 days away from the Expo in Dallas this year, so thought I would bump this thread.

Now, where are the "Big Mike's Trading" branded t-shirts we can wear to show our futures.io (formerly BMT) pride?

Big Mike's Trading: everything is bigger here.
Big Mike's Trading: my account is bigger than yours.
Big Mike's Trading: size does matter.

More to come, but you get the idea.

@Big Mike, let's talk about how to split the profits from the futures.io (formerly BMT) t-shirt booth we will have there.

We will also need to hire a "booth babe" to model a shirt or two.

Dallas TradersExpo - Thoughts


Let me start by saying that I've been to three TradersExpo's, one in New York, and two in Las Vegas. I missed last year's Expo in Dallas, but had wanted to go as I'm within driving distance. I can actually hop in my car and go without being groped and x-ray'ed by the TSA at some airport.

I've looked over this year's show schedule, and am surprised at how much these shows have shrunk over the years. My first show was the New York show in 2004, and it took me days to collect all the information while there, and weeks and months to plow through all the stuff after coming home.

The big name presentations are really about selling expensive, proprietary systems that include training, trading rooms, and indicators that in many cases are similar to ones in the Elite section of futures.io (formerly BMT). I did a random analysis on some of the presenters, like Bennett McDowell, Sunny Decker, and Tom Busby. Not to pick on these guys, but in each case, you can spend over $5000 just to get setup. I've found that people like this are more entertainers and marketers than real traders.

On the other hand, it looks like there'll be an opportunity to meet people who are basically selling books. Most notable will be Al Brooks. He has a one hour slot on June 9, and am guessing he'll be hanging around the Futures Magazine booth at other times. I'm also interested in listening to Corey Rosenbloom of "Afraid To Trade", and Matt Brown from "eMiniJunkie.com". Markus Heitkoetter will be there, and can say that he's decent guy who's truely interested in your success, without charging excessive fees. I've actually recommended Markus to a couple people who were getting started out in trading, and his material/setups were helpful.

Another notable item is the TradeStation presence. They in effect will have their own side show running the entire time. If you have TradeStation, this may have some value. However, a number of the presentations are really a forum to advertise add-ons and packages.

So with that, I'm really kind of undecided whether to make the 4.5 hour drive from Houston to Dallas. The only thing that might push me over the edge the remote possibility to meet a few real traders who may be around. These are other attendees that thought there might be something to gleen from going. IMHO many Expo goers seem to be newbies and the "get rich quick" types. I have to admit that I fell into that crowd at one point, and didn't make much progress from all the booths and presentations. Anyone making real money, would probably not have the time to attend, unless they're bored, or need some human interaction.

As the old saying goes: "Those who know won't say, and those who don't teach" - unless of course you are a member of futures.io (formerly BMT)!

I went; noticed less booths/vendors than last year, and seemed to have less visitors as well; at least when I went.

I did get to meet @mattz; good guy!

Just thought I would make a note for the record.
