  1. Which requires proof of a margin account with a minimum of 50 thousand in assets.

    a screen shot as evidence from a known legit brokerage firm to get access to it.

    This way it filters out the trolls and paper traders and more serious discussions can occur there.
     



  2. The local bar was so sure that its bartender was the strongest man around that they offered a standing $1000 bet. The bartender would squeeze a lemon until all the juice ran into a glass, and hand the lemon to a patron. Anyone who could squeeze one more drop of juice out would win the money. Many people had tried over time (weight-lifters, longshoremen, etc.) but nobody could do it.

    One day this scrawny little man came into the bar, wearing thick glasses and a polyester suit, and said in a tiny squeaky voice " I'd like to try the bet" After the laughter had died down, the bartender said OK, grabbed a lemon, and squeezed away. Then he handed the wrinkled remains of the rind to the little man.

    But the crowd's laughter turned to total silence as the man clenched his fist around the lemon and six drops fell into the glass. As the crowd cheered, the bartender paid the $1000, and asked the little man "what do you do for a living? Are you a lumberjack, a weight-lifter, or what?" The man replied "I work for the IRS."
     
  3. $50K in assets only proves that someone may be willing to blow his/her wad and has no clue.

    Maybe someone who shows at least one year of reasonably active profitable trading (that might leave out a few of our trading-service sponsors here - lol)

    I might be more impressed with someone who starts with little, rather than blowing it all ASAP

    JoePaterno:

    $10,000 Cash at the O'Hare International Airport terminal of your choosing if any one of your annual trading statements for the past 18 years is bigger than mine.

    You have never posted one thing in two years reflecting any substantive knowledge of trading.

    Put it up.

    Elite trader,

    This Bone guy is out of control. He just called an OP on a thread in the index futures a pussy.

    No one provoked or mentioned him in any way on that thread.

    Very wrong in so many ways.


    And the irony is that Bone has never posted any proof of his stupid statments that only a newbie would believe.
     
  6. I see now that you have resorted to cyberstalking - posting desperate and clueless offers over and over and over again.

    Everyone who actually expects that you should PROVE your claims will now become the recipient of your rants?

    And I will ask for definitive proof of the second claim (although "Proof" is a 4-letter word to you.

    JoeP is also "TraderZones".

    I've been getting private PMs about it and "Fireplace" spilled the beans on the Feedback forum 'garbage' thread.

    The same guy who was peddling a trading system for a quarter mill and without all of the "verification" he asks of other people. He was also fishing around amongst the membership looking to start up an educational service.

    There is also another "Joe" lurking around here who is heavily related, to say the least.

  9. This might have been discussed here ...

    Many newbies would be willing to pay to enter such a forum to learn from the pros. Count me in 500% if such a thing ever gets underway.

    Hopefully the pros will remember that they were newbies once upon a time. :) :)
     
  10. If there is anyone who has standing in this forum, then its me. I correctly called "the bottom".
