I really appreciate all the feedback. It helped save me $150 to sign up for the room. I hope it will help others too!

I was in their room last month - the trader in the room doesn't even use their indicators or autotrader. He uses a moving average crossover system on a 377 tick chart. DO NOT believe his youtube videos as they are not even close to the results he actually gets in the room. To get his results to positive one day he put on a 60 contract trade in the bonds...he also averages in on losing trades. Total joke.
They now only focus on an autotrader strat that has stops 2x the size of the target - my back testing showed negative results.

My post was certainly not "a complete fraud and a lie". I'm reporting what I experienced. The massive contract trade in the bonds was actually in one of their youtube videos which has since been deleted. Anyone that watches their other videos will also see that most of the trades are based on the MA crosses which is NOT a buysideglobal indicator or system. The results posted most days were not the same as what the trader was getting in front of the room members. This is not an attempt to harm their business although as a trader that has been in a number of rooms, it really bothers me when false returns are promoted in youtube videos. The "fraud and lie" is not on my end.

Do you have a link to the deleted video by chance? Maybe it can be resurrected by other means, as the vendor also claimed they never trade more than 4 contracts at a time.

Do you have any receipt or email of some kind to prove you were in their trading room, which would establish you have had an experience with them.

The Youtube video that showed a 60 contract trade in ZB was 10/17 - you will see that it is now conspicuously missing from that week's videos. I'm not aware of how to recover it - ask the vendor to re-post it without editing and you will see who is telling the truth here.

I want to commend and defend Sawdr. for his post. He replied to my request about user experiences with this company. It wasn't about trying to harm Buyside global. It was a response to a question I posted.

I too was not successful with this company, in the past. I was a member a couple years ago when they were promoting their "BG Pro" indicator. The room trader did not even normally use it. Then for a while he tried it in front of the room members and was not successful and even stated he would not be using it again. He went back to using his order flow method which was highly discretionary and hard to follow.

I'm not accusing Buyside global of being frauds. The fact is I don't know. However, I do know there are a lot of frauds out there and very few legitimate trading rooms and this hurts people who spend money on a trading room only to find out it was a fraud. If Buyside global is legit, where is the verified track record to prove it? If they don't offer a track record, then how about at least a 2-week trial so people can make up their own minds. They refused to do this, I asked. They did offer a 1 week ($19 trial) a few weeks ago. However, this has ended and they are not allowing people to take advantage of it now. Also, 1 week is not enough time to evaluate a room.

I also appreciate futures io for allowing people to post their honest opinions. This helps people like me looking for an honest and transparent mentor.
