This thread should focus solely on reviews about the EZ Color Trading system and the author, Beth (wgreenie).

Any other vendor topics including vendors as a whole or vendors in general do not belong in this thread. You can use the below existing thread for such broad discussions.

Maybe that's because people who have been participating in this forum for a while know Beth's journey that she detailed daily in her journal on this forum. By the way, that journal is a very good documentation of the trials of a struggling trader. Unfortunately from a trading perspective there is no happy ending where Beth is "making her millions" and is now offering her trading success to others as a subscription. I guess the success could've come in the very short time between her last post in journal and the time she sold her first EZColor subscription but I have a hard time believing that. I know Beth a bit outside this forum and find her to be as likeable as others have stated. However, assuming her journal is an accurate account of her trading skills there is no way I would invest in a subscription to her system and that is probably where most people reading this vendor review are as well. Notice I used "probably" and "most". Obviously I don't know everyone nor do I know most who participate in futures.io (formerly BMT) hence the use of probably and most. Don't want someone to say that I'm being black and white making a comment about something I can't substantiate. Anyway, I know someone will find fault with what I present but the documentation of who Beth is and what her trading skills are can be found in great detail in https://futures.io/trading-journals/2630-beths-journey-make-her-millions.html#post25778. Read it for yourself and then see if you want to take a chance on her trading system.

Gosh Mike W!

I'm shaking my head here - I can't even believe you even made the post above.

This is supposed to be about the EZcolor system -reviews by people who have tried it.

I have read her journal. I used to read it at the end of a long day of working on my system, as did countless others, to relax and find out what she was up to. (It probably has the greatest number of views of any journal ever written on this board - guess a wild guess OMP).

No one is implying that she is a millionaire - you are smarter than that.
The title of the journal when she started out was her goal at the time.
The title of her journal has no relevance on the merits of EZcolor.

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.

Guys... agree, disagree, that is fine. But lets keep things civil. futures.io (formerly BMT) is better than that. We are here to help each other, not to get our point across or ridicule someone.

In the interest of keeping this civil, I will only say that it is not unusual for a losing trader to become a 'trading mentor', vendor, seller of systems, indicators...etc. When you don't make money in the market, you look for other avenues. I feel sorry for the people who buy into those things, and even more sorry for people who sell them... they have neither shame nor integrity.

The thing here is this a unique situation here, in terms of "trying" it before commenting

We've all bought, and tried stuff on the market. Is there anyone here who would seriously consider even trying something if the site said, I can't trade successfully, and couldn't make money with my stuff, but maybe you can so pay me and give it a try. I doubt it seriously

So we go to a site, and some of them we either can't take seriously or they are so pricey we don't even think about giving them a try, but in all cases they try and convince us that they are unique, profitably trading their stuff, and worth us giving them our money.

If I look at a site, and it gets my interest, I don't know if they are doing what they say, so I make a value judgement. Is it worth the cost of trying the product worth it, if it turns out to be junk. Another words do I mind throwing away their asking price to satisfy my curiosity as to whether they are really doing what they claim.

But here is where Beth's site is unique for us. If you go to her site, you have the glowing words, that could make you think wow. But then we also have her thread here, and that is the problem. I see her site, and the read the thread here, and don't see she ever traded profitably. So why would I even consider giving her money to try her system.

This isn't a problem with the naysayers here, but the way she went about setting herself up. That wasn't a good business move. She should have done it so we couldn't identify her. That also creates problems. Ideally, she should have found something she could trade profitably, trade it to build a track record, and then sell it if she wanted. Oh well.

What Pete said. I'm glad I saw the millions thread and it helped me decide about EZ. And thanks to Mr. Tolkien(jungian) and others that brought up the articles , started this thread, and new developments on the EZ site. Good to be informed based on available information.

The thing that bothers me is that she references her experiences on this forum to add credibility. To me, that was why I was probably a bit frustrated. I started reading her journal too, long before I signed up. I appreciate any learning I achieved through that thread among the 1000 others I was reading also.

But like Big Mike said, I think we beat a dead horse and nobody is going to win this battle here at least and it will just create more negativity.

Re: negativity. I did not imply nor say wgreenie stole indicators from futures.io (formerly BMT). All I said was my reaction on reading the "millions" thread and the posts here which btw this thread and links to articles I did not start or post. I am just VERY GLAD I was warned away by others' information here away from ezcolor. Then this absurd "fictitious" blurb about slander related to what I said. I have a right to say on this forum my reaction to what I saw and my misgivings about having to rent indicators at a relatively high price from a student trader who based on her journal thread did not achieve consistent profitability nor stick to a set of indicators nor achieve the psychological trading skillsets necessary to succeed even at scalping the futures markets. Yes, I just joined futures.io (formerly BMT) just this past summer, but I've learned since then to reach a degree of consistency and not just based on indicators thanks to very helpful threads and sharing by consistent traders here. I did not just keep skipping to the next set of indicators.
