The community is one of the friendliest you will find on any subject, with members going out of their way to help others. Some of the primary differences between futures io and other trading sites revolve around the standards of our community. Those standards include a code of conduct for our members, as well as extremely high standards that govern which partners we do business with, and which products or services we recommend to our members.

With futures io, you can find honest trading reviews on brokers, trading rooms, indicator packages, trading strategies, and much more. Our trading review process is highly moderated to ensure that only genuine users are allowed, so you don’t need to worry about fake reviews.

This thread over the last 2 days has done nothing but distract us. It's distracted me, and I'll not view it any more unless Horst decides to post again. Is doing all this arguing and questioning actually helped anyone's trading? The only thing that helped here is Horst being calm and positive, and being "cool hand Luke" on his videos, taking wins and losses in stride. This greatly helped my demeanor when trading, even on sim, to try to keep a clear head. Thank you Horst, and I hope you return. Goodbye.

Considering that there's a product / method being peddled here, I suggest a simple test.

"Do you want the acid test of the evidence? Ask whoever is trying to sell you whatever it is they are trying to sell you to let you pay for that system, research, tools, opinion, or analysis out of the profits that it generates."
From The Art of the Trade by Jason Jankovsky

Looking forward to the evidence, Horst. This should be no problem, as the method clearly makes thousands and thousands of dollars every single day without any problems. (In trading, we call that Holy Grail, and congratulations on obviously discovering it).

"...the degree to which you think you know, assume you know, or in any way need to know what is going to happen next, is equal to the degree to which you will fail as a trader." - Mark Douglas

Horst


I dont think we will see Horst around anymore, he seems to have stopped posting. I am wondering though why all of the video's are in "Private" mode now, is this something the forum administrator did??

No, it's private on Youtube, it's a request of the owner(s) of the Youtube account(s).

It´s a shame.

I enjoyed Horst´s videos, well edited and eloquently narrated !
Who cares if they where real trades or not, it was entertaining .

To anybody who thinks the whole idea of trading for an hour in the morning and making 80k in a month,
or nuggets is achievable in the long run, just think about it.........

@horst :
If you made the money, good on you, and please let us know how you select the market to trade in the morning ?
If you did not make the money, keep posting the videos anyway !

Kind Regards

Locust

So it seems like Horst blocked most of his old videos. I visited his channel today to see if there was any new activity. He seems to have posted a video yesterday and today. He doesn't have em private, but the other ones still seem to be gone.

For those that care here is the link:

With luck this is my last post in the thread. Short - very hard to type due to hand.

I don't care if "Bob" is sim or cash, or says he is cash and is really sim, or whatever. That is 99.99% of journals here, "Bob", a regular trader, trying to improve themselves.

That is not Horst, in my opinion. Like I said before, he has gone to many sites and created new threads and links solely to say how fantastic this 10k system is. That is advertising, and we don't allow vendors to promote their products here in threads.

I say the above because it is my belief he was pushing an agenda here to sell a method. So when he pushes this agenda, then I start to care a great deal about the info he is posting on my site.

So understand this is not a typical case like other journals here.

Furthermore when all the new people registered and trashed futures.io (formerly BMT) and praised Horst, that is just another huge red flag that to me, personally, and in my opinion, screams scam and dishonest behavior. I discussed it with other moderators and they had similar opinions.

If you guys disagree with me, that is totally fine. But hopefully you respect me and know me well enough to know I am doing what I believe is right, and the best action for futures.io (formerly BMT).

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.

Mike,

What about adding to a vendors section? I guess they could post in the Vendor section? I think more vendors (which he is directly not a Vendor as I know for certain) might be interested?

Horst is VERY loyal to Henry and hence the issues. But, it would be great to see other traders show daily trades who are consistent etc. to help others? Just an idea...

Vendors cannot promote anywhere in posts. The vendors section is for regular members to review commercial vendors, not for vendors to post in. Vendors can respond to members in that section, but they cannot use promotional language like how much money they make or how great their room is, etc.

Any more questions on vendors please start a new thread.

Greetings Mike, I have not been around to respond to your viewpoint for the simple fact that the negativity that I've been exposed to here recently, doesn't suit me well. I am somewhat disappointed in your position and the conclusions you have been summarizing. Lets go back to the days before starting the journals for March where we discussed the ground rules in the form of PM's between you and I.


#1 You asked me how I was affiliated with NFT because you obviously had seen my videos on their YouTube channel that was posted with a link in another thread here. I told you I was a student, which I am. #2 I asked you if I could host my vids from that channel and link them here. You adamantly replied no, and that I must open my own YouTube channel for hosting since then, there would be no links to follow to my coach. I gladly obliged. #3 You made it quite clear there was to be no advertising and/or links posted involving my coach, which I haven't done. Do I love my coach enough to recommend him to others on onother site? Yes. Did I ever recommend him HERE? No


I have honored your requests to the fullest. Nowhere in our communication did you ever mention the fact that I needed to trade with one hand tied behind my back whilst blindfolded. I have been keeping a video log of my trading since Oct. 2010 and have no need to make these special so called "Sales Vids" for your contest. Yes I have bad days just like everyone else, but they can be counted on one hand, and they don't wipe out a weeks worth of gains (Feb. was a good example). It just so happens that in March, I was focused with a clear vision and a little extra determination. Consequently I give credit to your website and the inspiration of posting my journal here. For that I thank you, and I should be the one buying YOU the iPad as a token of my appreciation.


I would also like to address those with the obvious "Lack Mentality" (google it) that can't see the forest for the trees. They are engaged in the most lucrative business in the world, yet fail to realize the true potential in front of them. By criticizing and ostracizing me, they can defend their own shield of denial. Speculating that trading better than they do is a distinct possibility, but yet this way, they don't have to feel as bad about their own shortcomings and failures.


Guys, I was trying to help open your eyes and make you aware of your surroundings and your true potential. It's there, if you search within yourselves. Set your goals a little higher, you won't regret it. Just because you can't see it yet, doesn't mean it's not in your horizon.



I will retreat now back into my cave, as I can hear the villagers approaching in the distance, bearing pitchforks, clubs and torches once again .................Hence, I Bid You All Adieu
