Welcome to

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.

I keep finding misleading and/or deceptive ads on Yahoo! UK that have to do with trading/investing. This is the latest.

Please register on to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

By clicking on the link, you are taken to this webpage (I don't actually recommend clicking on it at all).

Leaked Wall Street Software Turns $1,500 Savings Into $2.7 Million Fortune

where one is greeted with the following, in large font

How One 64-Year Old Man Grew His $1,500 Savings Into $2.7 Million Fortune
The Fable of Ben Ivy*

Note the asterisk at the end. That asterisk is referred again to at the bottom of the page, where you can read (I've added the emphasis on certain words)


Ben Ivy turned $1500 into $2.7 million using our free software in his dreams. Ben is a fictive character marketing a very real trading software product and investment opportunity. Any and all earnings assertions and examples made by Ben not only are to be considered exceptional, they are not even actual.They are the reveries of the imaginary Mr. Ivy. The software also is not actually honorary but comes with the opening of a brokerage account.

Success of real people in real life using our software depends on several factors, including your finances, proficiency, market conditions and trading skill. Since these factors vary among individuals, we cannot warrant your results, nor are we culpable for your actions. Trading is a highly speculative business and you accept our proposition cognizant of the fact that you could undergo momentous losses.

Welcome to the Wonderful World of the Fabulous Mr Ivy. Enjoy the show, good luck with our software, and happy trading.
