  4. Exhibits only pass is only $50, fyi.
  5. "only?"
  6. Imagine all of the free pens, coffee mugs, key rings, t-shirts and mouse pads you can get! :cool:
  7. Imagine all the phone calls you'll receive from companies willing to service your trading business.

  8. !!!!!!!!!!!! +1 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    We get to spend a few hundred roundtrip to Chicago, hotel, meals, $50 entrance..

    All for the pleasure of being spammed, postal mailed, and called with hundreds of "we met at Convention... Let me remind you again about our cannot-miss offer!!"

    Not to mention meeting a lot of people who cannot make money trading, so would prefer to sell you hardware, software, trading methods, subscriptions, data access, etc. etc. etc. to help YOU make money.

    And meet hundreds of unemployed financial-services ex-employees wandering around, handing out business cards and resumes...

    Hold Me back...
