I paid $25 for lifetime access. Sounds like a damn fool way to make money to me.


lol - I knew when my gym offered me a lifetime membership for $300 that they were doomed.

Indeed, they are no more...

Big Mike's results: I'm so sorry to have been jaded by so many service providers / educators / well-meaning traders, but: the Elite service could be Mike's only way of making money. Mike, can you ask your broker to provide sanitized statements of your accounts to others showing that you actually are consistently profitable?

Come on it is a one time $50 fee. If $50 is a big deal should not be trading. I personally hope Big Mike makes money off providing this site. It takes a lot of time and work to make this place what it is. In my opinion he fully deserves compensation whether that is through Elite fees or advertisements etc.. I paid the fee within weeks of finding this site not because I was looking for a method but because I liked the site realized someone had put a lot of work into it and I should support it. That being said I have benefited much more than the $50 I paid.

I also think whether Big Mike is profitable or not is his own business and has nothing to do with this forum.

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

I think you guys scared him away!!

I said this before and it worth repeating; The accumulated knowledge and education found on this site is infinitely more useful and educational than any collection of books you could possibly collect or read in your life time. (@Fat Tails may be the exception to this rule.)

No offense to Mike, but I don't come here for what he has to say. I come here for the collective knowledge shared amongst the members, he is just a middle-man facilitating discussion. I would however like verification as to how many dogs he actually has, I am skeptical.

LOOOL yeah I am also wondering more often about the number of dogs he has than his profitability :-p go figure

Successful people will do what unsuccessful people won't or can't do!

I suspect they are correlated, what happens during a major drawdown

Thank you for your replies so far. Sounds like Mike generates a lot of good will here and seems to have helped at least a few people.

If Mike has all this site's information available to him, and has been reading, writing, absorbing information here from the start, his results might be a good indicator of the quality of the site's usefulness to others like him. He says he trades. It might be useful to see his results from two to three years ago through to now to see how Mike has progressed. If Mike trades and he is not consistently profitable, then his own content regarding trading has to be seen as potential rabbit trails, wastes of time, and not education as what does not work for one person does not mean another cannot use it. Only when a trader arrives at consistent profitability does he or she know a correct path - and that only for themselves. (Once there, if they can teach or help another person is an entirely different matter.)

This is not an attack on Mike at all. I value Mike and your time enough to re-visit, spend my time to try to continue my trading education. Thanks again for all replies. Very kind of you!

this is not a valid asumption. Big Mikes trading results have nothing to do with the
enormous amount of useful information on this site.

I think the thread should be closes because you sound like an troll
and if you are not you are just very very d....b

As only our honoured red members are giving such quick remarkable answers...
I think That thread may be closed immediately! :-)

I've had the same thoughts...maybe Mike is enjoying the show which could hopefully help him a lot to get well soon ...

Besides that, I think everything else has been already said.

Thanks @Big Mike for providing such a fantastic and informative platform !
