Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Just read his ripoff report, in particular I like this last sentence:


PureTick's Brian Padgett
Buyer BEWARE!! Do not subscribe to Bike Mikes Biases Forum, Unless you want to lose your credibilty.

Brian is exactly right. He joined futures.io (formerly BMT) to promote PureTick, and by the time he left (banned, a few minutes later) his credibility was indeed lost!

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.
6)

stay away...not even a free trial

I have been in the futures business since 1987 (CBOT floor). I was surrounded on the floor by a lot of different personalities (some good/some bad/some difficult). Also, dealt with a lot of large institutional clients (mostly from NY).

I have seen it all but I have never seen a more unprofessional person as Alex W. at Puretick. In 2012 I had to reinvent myself as a trader (formerly a spread trader) and I somehow joined Puretick. A total scam and you will lose money in his trading room. I won a raffle that they had and I got their A to Z guide for free. They charge $2,500 for it and it is worthless. I could go on and on....

8,000 people have been in his room....don't be 8001. You will lose and after you lose he will try to get you to pay for a private mentoring program (for $10k). He is a bad person and if he would have worked on the CBOT floor in the 'day' he would not have lasted more than a month. No one would have put up with him. Fortunately, my stay in the room was rather brief...but I still cannot believe I joined this room.

Alex if your listening....show your DOM.

Thanks Big Mike, for checking on Brian Padgett...

Hi All,
This will be my last post on Puretick.com ( now : Puretick.co because of high volume complaints).
Yes, I need to grow in all ways.
Yes, Alex can trade, and does have a sense of humour.
However, Alex does call himself a Coach. Honest? Truthful of called trades ?
No comment.
Padge is obviously a long time member of Puretick.- since virtually no one knows
much about a great trader there: 'Stretch' . He is a Great guy, generous and quiet.
*
Those who know don't talk, those who don't know 'talk' .
*
I was a defender of that site in the past; no mud on my face- I do stand up and
accept responsibility. However , I have learned from that experience and feel others
must get a 'head's up '' , before joining any room.
*
However, I do feel that the owner of the 'Puretick.co 'site, does have serious issues that I feel
must be raised - so other traders are forwarned .
*
I accept criticism, and will stop here, except to say thank you to Mike for allowing
differing opinions- 'cause we are all traders here, with different ideas and goals.
*
My goal is to be a helpful trader, and a great one.
Cheers to all serious students.

Futures Edge on FIO
A futures.io (formerly BMT) user let me know they posted a rebuttal on rip off report:

Ripoff Report | Big Mikes Trading Forum Complaint Review Princeton , Texas: 1092663

I then read another post by Puretick saying that I called Alex and told him for $5000 I would take down this thread. This is completely false, and I wonder if I should contact an attorney or not and sue them for make knowingly false statements (libel/defamation).

The issue isn't whether or not I could win a lawsuit, it's the time it would take. Something I really don't have. Anyone care to comment on this, whether you think it is worth it or not? Maybe the goal could be to finally put Puretick out of business, and from that point of view I do think it would be worth some time, in order to protect all the future victims that this company could create.

This is just the game pt likes to play making wild accusation without a shred of back up evident. I say don't waste your energy on them, relax on your private beach and chuckle at their silliness.

Hi Mike,
This all seems like traders having different opinions and Brian Padgett
feeling snubbed because very few agree with him- as sales
marketing manager with Puretick.co .
It is unfortunate that Brian does not examine why Puretick.co is so small
in number. 9 years in business and still he only gets 100-120 paying members
a month. If the site was so good why churn the membership number at only
110 traders monthly. Traders are dropping out at the same rate as they join-
that would explain why Alex needs a new marketing guy !
*
I 'd suggest leaving Puretick.co to its' own demise. Traders are a much smarter
group now than they were 5 years ago.
*
Any simpleton who can read can tell in a heartbeat that you and most
members here are here to help, share, and grow.
*
Any judge reviewing 5 pages of notes in your forums will see the integrity you
have brought to : 1) public forums in general, and 2) to the trading community
overall ( new and experienced traders alike).
*
Remember , again I said - I defended the Puretick.co site in the beginning, but
as my eyes opened; I saw a very different picture - hence my reason to comment.
*
Thanks for doing a great job, Mike. You have a lot of supporters, far more than some
unscupulous trading operators.
G.

Personally, i would not invest a iota of time in this pursuit. The more time you'd invest on that case the more energy would be lost for other worthy pursuits. Think about it this way, is it your mission in life to save all souls?

I don't think it's worth the time either. These guys have unfortunately been more successful than the Oil Academy loony and survived over the years like Netpicks. gone are the old west days when they used to tar and feather and cut off body parts of snake oil waggoners. Overall I think this thread alone is good enough to warn most newbies who search for real info reviews on Puretick. Even as a more positive, friendly site, futures.io (formerly BMT) makes no bones about hard trading is on it's forum threads nor any less in the vendor review section.
