I am interested in knowing user experiences of the forum called BigMike Trading. I believe the owner of this site lives in some exotic island and teasing everyone of the potential of trading and similar lifestyle. He apparently changed the site name recently. I wonder why?

My experience of the site was fairly negative. Firstly, the site was highly addictive. I kept checking all the posts every 5 mins. It had lots of intelligent people who make you feel like trading needs hard work, discipline and commitment. They won't give you the secret code or timing to buy and sell. They are very harsh on almost all vendors out there. (I have used many of those vendors systems and it seems unfair. All the charts and indicators in the websites look really pretty. Though I lost money on all of them, I am pretty sure that it was because of market manipulation or my astrological sign and not due to vendor's fault).

The members also seem to talk about other useless stuff like psychology, discipline, execution and unnecessary funny stuff like recent movies, songs and cute pictures of beaches, cats and dogs. Trading is all about indicators, trend lines and money, right?

Anyone else with other experiences?

Never heard of it. Based on your post, it sounds terrible.

Hey, do you know of a method that can give me just $50 a day on Crude? Just something simple. I just opened an account with $1000 at a broker who gives me $400 margins, so I figure I can be trading 20 contacts soon when I find a good profitable trading room. I'll post my spreadsheet later that shows all the gains.

Also, which indicator do you recommend to filter out bad signals from my other indicators?

I heard that all of the users on the site are shills... And that he pays the Market Wizards on the site to defend him.

I spent time in that horror show. All this talk of discipline and hard work.

You know I think there is an EA or automatic strategy that can fix your problem. its called AwesomeMegaTrendSuperBucksATM . It has a 98% win rate. How can you lose? I just put in my life savings of $5000 and am going to use it to trade 10 ES, 10 6E, 10 CL, and 10 GC. I don't have to worry about drawdown or leverage because with a 98% winrate I will never lose. I am so excited by the end of the month I can buy the Ferrari I always wanted.

4 tick mean Renko chart with the latest scalper strategy and of course 3 moving averages. Works great if Goldman doesn't run your stops

Problem with that Futures.io is that it's so damn inexpensive and they give everything away for free. That Big Mike guy never spams your email account With useless shit either. Kind of makes me a little weary.

I believe it is a scam run out of some third world country. They suck you in by letting you sign up for free, and then if you pay the ridiculously expensive membership fee, all you get is access to a great community of traders, exposure to every trading idea under the sun, and free downloads of thousands of indicators and tools. And they don't even guarantee you profitability. What a joke.

It's even worse than that, I'm afraid: they also routinely remove all the desperate spam, promotional nonsense and irrelevant crap that you get anywhere else, and they seem actually to imagine - for reasons best known to themselves - that being helpful and keeping the forum well indexed and arranged isn't going to irritate anyone.

I'd pay double if it was called ULTIMATEMegaTrendSuperBucksATM. Ultimate has to be better right?
I've had 'Awesome' indicators before and they didn't work so I just need something newer and better.

I think he has a chain of eating establishments.
But with a name like Big Mike I guess that is obvious.

I came to bigmikes to get reliable signal cues from the chat but all I see is this @Itchymoku character, @tturner86, @srgtroy, and @TheShrike talking about grilling burgers, flying planes, and GOD KNOWS WHAT! The other night I could swear they were talking about ladyboys and obama really being osama. What's in the hell is going on!!! I need help finding signals for my awesome new range bar system with 8 tick target and 16 tick stop.

I heard this is all an elaborate ruse to help cover the fact he is a CIA agent. Also heard he narrowly escaped detection during a customs inspection. Although he did lose a mattress in the ordeal. He was able to get a drone, high powered camera, and enough computer hardware in to complete his mission.

I heard that Big Mike guy moved to Ecuador or something.

I heard he has a house girl squeezing him fresh juice every morning and lives with a bunch of dogs on the beach. He's probably a real estate tycoon down there now.

Hey wait, that sounds pretty cool!

With a name like Big Mike, I dont think he misses too many meals

Around 5% move the market. 10% try to follow the 5%. The rest provide liquidity.
