Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

I asked cobraking
because he joined FIO today. And guess what
he made his first post in this thread

I wonder why

Possibly this massive just a coincidence? remembering that Chris his father is the real rocksolid68. I'm tired of this, I'll throw in the good stuff soon Alex.

Googling (with quotes) "rocksolid68" stealth

eBay Suspension & Paypal Limited Forums - View Single Post - Ally bank (a banned user called rocksolid68?)

http://www.aspkin.com/forums/members/rocksolid68.html "Complete scammer, do not buy accounts from his individual"

https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/how-i-lost-two-power-sellers-in-one-day.476684/
https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/im-looking-for-ebay-stealth-account.473798/


The last one - "like a title, I'm looking for ebay stealth account, pp if you know where to get it, plzzz tell me "

rocksolid68 "Shoot me a PM - I can assist."

[I]Stealth eBay accounts are used when Ebay bans you as a seller for various reasons. They scan for duplicate IP addresses and other identity factors but steath ebay accounts can defeat eBay's security monitoring (sometimes). The same tech that one could used on a site like this?

Ok but if you have a stealth account.. you need a stealth paypal account.. but.. how can you open a paypal account in another name?

Just an idea. Try googleing "rocksolid68" carder

In 2012 rocksolid68 , a blackjack player going back a bit (very intelligent man I guess?), lost his job. In 2012 a rocksolid68 starts stealth eBay services and carding.

How do you feel about giving any rocksolid68 your name, address, computer IP, biographical data and credit card? Do we know it is him or it is not him?

We don't and we can't I guess.

Remember Alex was not banned as such. His dad was the real rocksolid68 account owner here, he also uses rocksolid1968 I believe. In the future Alex can use his own card (now 18 he can get a card) to buy a membership or Paypal if he showed a clean slate and Big Mike was amenable.

Rory,

James "German 10 yr" Bund himself would be proud of this detective work. Masterful, shades of Michaelangelo. I wasn't convinced by your prior postings regarding his fathers involvement, given the obvious reasons involved with sharing an account and his dad paying for hosting seeming natural for his age, but this confirms it.

Nice work, there cannot be more 'good stuff' surely, unless you're working besides NSA.

Sorry if I offend anyone, but come on and get real. There are only two types of people that get started in penny stocks and IF they say they made money then they lost my trust. If they lost money I believe them, but then I gotta ask why in the world were you in penny stocks?

The guy was probably just doing a new age multi-level marketing or do it yourself bucket shop. Always the same basic idea appeal to other people's greed by saying give me a little and I will show you how to make a lot, the quick and easy way. Wan't even a new imaginative hustle, just got busted by Big Mike before he pulled the sting.

Those that think he is a great guy may eventually be proven correct but I think the odds are greater that they wake up one day and realize that they were suffering from battered wife syndrome. After all most of Wall Street runs on fees, not profits from trading, profits are just the gimmick to get the rubes into the game. Big Mike works hard to keep that type away. Please don't make him gun shy the next time he has to make a hard call for our collective benefit.

statement of the day.

good post.

Rory,

James "German 10 yr" Bund himself would be proud of this detective work. Masterful, shades of Michaelangelo. I wasn't convinced by your prior postings regarding his fathers involvement, given the obvious reasons involved with sharing an account and his dad paying for hosting seeming natural for his age, but this confirms it.

I just used Google guys..

I used to do work for the UK police as an IT tech. This MAY NOT BE the same man!. Only court orders would prove that or not with absolute certainty. well maybe..

One thing I learned from the police, massively over confident people are often bizarrely sloppy, they leave huge trails behind them but don't care as they can get out of anything usually with a few mindgames. Look at DT and others in this election. One lie is like a nail, it hurts you, 1000 is like a bed of nails, you can't feel them anymore. Unless your me, I have a headache.

I've resisted posting this. There are two people here, a young kid and an adult.

You need to consider the available public information and make a decision without accusing anyone unfairly for obvious reasons.

No offence but I think you're probably wrong. I don't know him from Adam but his posts did not come across as trollish, just as yet another guy who's having to lose a lot of nervous energy over this ridiculous farce.

Save time and let it die. A lie is a lie.

thanks! simple really.

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)

Hi Mike
i completely respect this, and will do going forward. And I apologise.

I was called a troll and two faced for: being nice to Alex in his chat room, but not on here. Imo someone else started the rudeness and name calling.


DaxyMcDaxFace View Post
He's a really nice guy, very talented and will do well in whatever he wants to. Possibly even trading. His time has run here for now. I agree with a temp ban and I doubt he will be back.

Thanks.

------------

For anyone who still has popcorn left....

The gist of the original post was, wait for it......................................................:

I could actually like Alex and think he made a mistake!

I have a view that Alex is a nice guy, has skills to offer, and went about things the wrong way. Not being able to understand this is beyond me. I dont sign up to the: 'you need to be multi millionnaire trader wizard' to offer assistance in others trading journey. Theres examples in every day life (public/sports/music/science/art/business/being nice) of people being coached by others who havent excelled at that particular activity. And the point of this was: this wasnt in question. Alex's behaviour in this instance was in question - these two are NOT mutually exclusive.

Have a nice evening everyone.

Was just thinking, If he does come back, he might need to start a new thread


Lol

I did say in his room today he's going to be second guessed every time he posts. It will be distracting for everyone, but more so for him.

I don't want to give an impression I'm casually amused (and I'm sure mmaker is not either). I see a smart young man going down a path into a very seedy industry with dangers to his reputation he can't hope to manage. Nose in the tent? certainly, there is a big shadow from outside the tent we could forgive ourselves for assuming is the rest of the camel.

I wish Alex no ill will, I hope he finds happiness in life after this upset. However..

Regarding the real rocksolid68 (1968) dad who has not intervened to my knowledge and has been funding his kid to learn what? pumping punters, clumsily damaging his young reputation in the process. Walk in a man's shoes etc. but..

Look at the comment on the the zerogravity site (I'm not giving them back-links on purpose, every one is SEO gold) and see the biography:

"My name is Alex Zobell and this is my story. Its not for "maketability" as he claimed IMO. This is not a "nom de plume" like an actor or writer is traditionally licenced to use and everyone knows is theatrical.

He was planning to take real and substantial room fees using a false name? Come on. Is the additional biography a very (too?) adult idea to avoid statues on using false names in financial translations I must ask? There are a lot of legitimate Alex Zobells out there so he is bound to make sure he does not confuse anyone with them. Accident or design?

He did not say "Alex the wonder trader" or "James 10 year Bond" which is obviously fictitious (and ok I understand). A normal person finding his site would have no way to know. I personally believe "Zobell" lends to a "burner", if it goes tits up its harder to trace in the future.

-I AM 18 YEARS OLD AS OF THIS PAST JULY. I assume one must be 18 to legally trade in the US? Again, his 3 years "trading experience" is BS. Only live counts the context of selling a training service which was his stated intent. Multiply the room fee by 100+ and then add market share accumulation value, advertising, referrals, other sales and "Advanced" in the future?

-COLLEGE FRESHMAN AT UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA/DULUTH When does this young man go to class, study, sleep? Even if he has time to deal with the endless emails and admin of running a site, would you let your kid's health and education suffer doing this? really? They appear to have some money - see the car below.

-HAVE BEEN TRADING FUTURES FOR NEARLY 3 YEARS. part time while in highschool. Also to be trading you have to be trading not on SIM most if not all of the time. Misleading.

-YOUNGEST MARKET WIZARD ON FUTURES.IO. I barely know what I'm doing myself after 2.5 years full time. Wizard.. its potentially very misleading. People here know that Wizards are mixed bags, not the novice public.

-DRIVE A 2015 VW JETTA TDI (NO MASERATI YET) "

1 year old VW jetta, many impoverished adults on this forum would dream of that car. This is the equivalent of what I call the 'infinity pool' selfie, I wish I could have just his jetta... its an old old sales trick.

I wish Alex well though I don't want to spend my time wondering if he is just adding to a con posting here.

I certainly hope he is not or gets out from under a bad influence that has a relaxed attitude to the truth, identity and other people's trust/money.


I must go to my office, have a profitable Friday everyone.

Too many pertinent points in one post for this forum, people's heads will be exploding trying to compute this common sense posting.

I vote ban Rory for making sense.
