Well...if that's NOT the holy grail, I really don't know...

And, hopefully I can make a whole lot of SIM money, so I'll be able to buy a lot of SIM food as well as paying my SIM mortgage and SIM gas...

but if a person can make money in SIM and do it for a period of time, doesn't that mean it will work well in live?

Well, of course this would be a good precondition, but trading real money is a quite different animal, also because of the psychological aspects which come into play.

I really do admire this company's tremendous benevolence and generosity towards their fellow man. They have created a system that can make over 50 million in a year...and instead of selfishly using that system themselves to become jet setting moguls, they share it with us !( for a modest fee..of course.)
They could easily use this system to generate an absolute fortune..but out of the sheer kindness of their hearts, they choose to open a trade room....That's what I call "Paying it forward.."

I spent a couple of trial days in his room a few weeks ago. His chart looks like a Donkey Kong screen, when price hits a level he fades it with 3 cars. If it goes against him, he adds with 3 more, continuing adding until it turns around and goes his way. No stops. The largest trade I saw go against him was around -$32,000.

On his web site he has trade records from other accounts, says he makes $400K a day. I asked "If you can make $400K per day, why don't you do it?".

You bid for the room fees, like eBay.

He send me another trial for last week but I didn't bother going.

This actually sounds a lot like @vegasfoster's sim approach, just keep adding and it will eventually turn out well.

is that what you call it?, "goodness", I think I read (over the holiday season or something), "no one is good, but the father".

oh, wait, perhaps I am confusing topics, and conversations,
oh, wait, let me look around, and see where am I.

oh, was that praise or what?

one side effect of winning (big) and losing (bigger and smaller) in trading live accounts are the reality that "reality" exists.

the "if" factor is quite expensive to stop advancing in the manner that we each have achieved, and start following someone else's methods, especially someone so fabulously successful....

or does that express a qualified, justifiable, valid level of disbelief, suspicion, doubt or reality.

where did Sharky lend his support?, in a statement on his website?, or here on the threads?, or how did you come to know that?

novel idea.


why not offer (qualified to interested contributors from futures.io (formerly BMT)) to some futures.io (formerly BMT)'ers (those who contribute, based on participation (any level, not just insomniacs) to be trained and allowed to trade side x side, say up to a certain level, such as helping them make money in their accounts (based on qualified account statements being submitted for review)

and after say, achieving $5,000 profits, or $10,000 profits, then terminate and allow them to do two things:

A) attest to the credibility of the approach and offering
B) become paid customers based on those earnings

this does multiple things:

1) establish credibility both ways
2) confirms the validity of the offering, website and approach, and respects the fact that this industry remains frought with hucksters and jaded realists that just can't afford yet again, another Huck

3) invests in both qualified customer base as well as verifiable results (oops, did I repeat myself)

there are many other benefits, but one has to respect the fact that these threads are juicy targets of any vendor hoping to shoot ducks in a barrel with their warmed over, repackaged "stuff", and being peppered with buck shot from all prior experiences, very few of us can distinguish from valid verses vanity offerings.

hey, perhaps you're really all that you claim, so on the chance that its so, then consider that more than just presenting your services are required.

after all, at least you know that those who participate on these threads are your better than average potential customer base, and knowledgable potential consumers

just a thought....

ok, so like, uhhh,,,,

who cares?

well, opportunity missed......


frankly, the opportunity was here are some novel terms that do justice to both groups (vendor and vendee(s) )

perhaps one is too busy, or not in need of vendee(s), although the request to solicit for bids is made on website

perhaps one is too busy, or not in need of another driver to deposit all those money bags at the bank teller,

perhaps those who were potential customers have heard it all before, and just not trusting, yet again, for fear of outcomes similar to all previous similar offers....

hey,
gotta be fair to both sides...

especially when you represent yourself (i.e. we as traders, represent ourselves and have to manage our own risk management profiles)
