The website Big Mike Trading is running a massive scam on the Internet. Besides the fact that the whole forum is a con and a scam forum with no real traders there whatsoever, Big Mike Trading or Big Mike himself is using his own forum to slander other traders online such as myself. And not just slander them but to lie about them everyday without end for years! Big Mike has been warned by me over and over again for a very long time now to take down the thread on his forum because of the slander against me. He laughs at this. Can you imagine that? What kind of a legitimate business owner would laugh at people and businesses being slandered for years almost everyday on his own forum? Is that what his forum is actually for? I'm here to submit that's exactly what his forum is for, it's being run by Freemasons, who's whole purpose and pleasure is to scam people and to slander people, they take great pleasure in causing nothing but havoc to society.

My lawyer and I are filing a lawsuit against the website Big Mike Trading, a video of this can be seen here:

Big Mike Trading Lawsuit

You'll see that this problem I'm having with this website Big Mike Trading goes back a long time with the following two videos:

Big Mike Trading Scam

I am alerting the public as to what is really going on within this website Big Mike Trading, the owner is a scam and a con artist beyond belief, and he deserves to be put into prison where he belongs, but first my lawyer and I will be taking this con artist inside a courtroom where he can explain to a Judge why he uses and allows his own forum to slander other businesses online when he knows what's going on and won't do a thing about it. This is why I'm taking this guy into a courtroom and suing him for allowing his website to be used for the purpose of slandering people online, and not just slandering, but slandering in the most evil, most vicious, and most hateful way I've personally ever seen anywhere on the Internet.

Big Mikes Trading Forum is now FUTURES.IO

AUTHOR: Mark - (United States)

POSTED: Wednesday, July 25, 2018

I am a really well known legitimate trader with a independentdly audited successful track record.  I have give and contributed to forums of all sorts.  Just as others have said I was attacked and belittled after Big Mike contacted me to pay for his Elite group. Others in that group who know me said Mike was deleting my public contributions off his site and posting the content for the Elite members who were paying.  After I confronted him about this he threated to kick me off the site and when he relized I had a huge following he just buried my post to never be seen instead. 

Big Mike obviously only cares about profiting from others work and contributions and has nothing of value of his own.  Some fools bought his forum good for them.

Big Mike is Smart - Fooled us ALL

AUTHOR: sallymcgregor71 - (USA)

POSTED: Thursday, September 24, 2015

This Mike dude fooled us. I mean I saw an article on his review not so long ago about BigOption trading. At that time I thought he was genuine and was an Expert Broker, so I didn't pursue the chance to give a go at trading binary. After a few weeks I took a gamble and traded with them, they were legit, no scam, I could withdraw my money after a few trades and all. I'm not a professional so I dont' trade ridiculous amount like thousands of £ like some people. Little amount suffice me. I'm happy with them and regret that I didn't start trading in the beginning. Anyway Mike Trading is fake! Don't fall for this trap like I did.

So Big Mike Trading is Fake?

AUTHOR: John Cain - (USA)

POSTED: Monday, September 14, 2015

I'm new to this whole Binary Trade world. But I have seen a lot reviews from Big Mikes Trading almost everywhere on the web. So everything he said is FAKE? Because I wanted to give a try at it and trade with a firm called BigOption. But seeing those reviews everywhere got me worried. And now seeing this, I'm starting to think I could have started trading with them. Oh well.

Not relevant

POSTED: Wednesday, July 09, 2014

Your proposal is basically ridiculous and has nothing to do with BMT. I can personally testify to the remarkable trading community that exists at Big Mike Trading. It is not about an individual but the environment that exists when folks get together to share experience and expertise. Frankly, not much truth, IMO, to your allegations nor much benefit to time in your room.

Big Mike Being Sued By Amp Futures!

AUTHOR: Oil Trading Academy - ()

POSTED: Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Well it's finally happen, the criminal Big Mike running the Big Mike Trading Forum and Website is being sued:

Big Mike Trading Being Sued

And here is my own message about the Big Mike Trading Forum and Website:

Big Mike Trading

Big Mike himself is a criminal, he is the biggest liar I've ever seen before, and he is using his own forum in a conspiracy to slander other traders with and is knowingly doing this, making himself guilty of a conspiracy, and as a scientist and philosopher I'm calling for the FBI and any law enforcement to take action against Big Mike himself and file criminal charges against him and put him into a prison cell where he belongs.

All of the people who have said that "Big Mike is a good guy and I found the forum very useful" are all shills, make no mistake about that. The entire forum is run and operated by criminals, and it's time for law enforcement to take action now and put these people into prison cells where they belong.

BMT is a top notch site for traders

AUTHOR: dtlsaw - ()

POSTED: Saturday, July 27, 2013

BMT is anything BUT a ripoff. BMT has great value in my opinion. I've learned a great amount from BMT and respect the way that BMT is run. BMT is obviously a high class site, it's as plain as day.

I would recommend it to anyone that is trying to improve their skills in futures trading. I would be seriously harmed if Big Mikes web site closed. I'm not familiar with the oil guy making these allegations, but it's obvious he's using small minded tactics. How is having a trading contest anything but a silly divergence from the original complaint. A $10,000 challenge, your character is showing you up now!

A scam, how could that be?


POSTED: Wednesday, July 10, 2013

 I am a member of bigmiketrading.com and have been since 2010

You want to learn about how to trade? You want to learn what it means to trade successfully? You want to learn what it requires to think and act like a trader? You have questions about how to code an indicator or an automated strategy?  You want unbiased, real world user's opinionated reviews of nearly any trading system ever made available for purchase? You want to understand the logic behind many of the trading systems ever made available for purchase?  You have questions about money management, emotional control, setups, entries, exits, market relationships, or maybe just the basics of how to read a chart or how to start out?  You want to attend free webinars from the leading traders, authors, providers and brokers known, recognized and highly regarded throughout the trading world?

Check out bigmiketrading.com

Does the site have real traders? Absolutely, just ask them and decide for yourself if they are real or not. Trading is not for everyone, trading is not a hobby, trading is not a sport, gambling or a challenge.  Trading is a business that is controlled by the greed and fear of the market participates. Trading is about knowing the edge this offers, confidence in your thought process and taking action as required when the opportunity arises. 

Bigmiketrading a scam, hardly... How could it be?  Nothing is sold on the site.  You can sign up for a free membership or an elite membership that costs about the same as 2 months of a data feed subscription.  Both memberships have access to hundreds of free indicators, documents, threads, posts, methods, ideas and mentors.  How can all that be considered a scam?

I have found my time at Big Mikes Forum very helpful

AUTHOR: TraderChris - ()

POSTED: Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Having spent literally hundreds of hours looking for pertinent information regarding trading, the community at Big Mikes Forum to be far and above the best that I have found. The community does work together - if you simply ask a question and expect THE answer you may be discouraged because more often then not they will not give you THE answer. 

What they will do is provide commentary from their own experiences, point you in the right direction and encourage you that the answer lies WITHIN YOU rather then chasing after someone elses magical system.

Any rational person can tell after reading the ridiculous accusations made by Oil Trading Academy or listening to his youtube videos that he is not basing his attacks on anything close to facts but rather just spewing vitrol.

If you have any doubts about Big Mikes Trading forum I would encourage you to come spend some time over there and check it out for yourself.

$10,000 Challenge

AUTHOR: Oil Trading Academy - ()

POSTED: Monday, July 08, 2013

Anybody on the Internet can say anything they want, talk is cheap.

That's why I've publicly challenged anybody at Big Mikes Trading to a $10,000 challenge. You get your best trader you have and come into a trading room with me which we'll record and whoever can trade the best wins the challenge and takes the $10,000 that we'll give to a 3rd party to hold for us.

How would that be?

But guess what, nobody is going to accept this challenge because none of you are real traders, what you are is nothing but con artists and Freemasons, nothing more.

But when you grow up and become men and become traders you let me know, the $10,000 challenge will still be offered to you. You can even attempt to find a trader anywhere in the world, since I'm by far the best trader to ever exist you won't be able to find anybody that can even hold a candle to me, since I'm the one who broke the entire code to the entire Futures markets.

And believe me, when people come to my website they not only believe what I'm saying but they buy my videos as well, and then they learn about Big Mike Trading and learn what a con and joke the entire website is, run by Freemason criminals who lie for a living.

Big Mike Trading is a great forum

AUTHOR: Jay - ()

POSTED: Monday, July 08, 2013

Big Mike Trading is, in my opinion, the best internet trading forum.  David has given absolutely no facts here or reasons why BMT is a scam.  If this were taken to a court of law, David would be laughed out of the courtroom.  David says that BMT slanders in a "vicious" and "evil" way; he needs to look no further than the nearest mirror to see the real slanderer.  Just have a look at Oil Trading Academy's internet presence and David's youtube videos if you want to see a true raving lunatic in action; it is entertaining at least.  I wish David no harm, only the best psychiatric help he can find, and soon, before he causes some real harm.

To reiterate--BMT is a great site. It's a shame that lunatics like David try to create trouble for others.

I have found my time on Big Mike Trading Helpful

AUTHOR: Jim - ()

POSTED: Thursday, July 04, 2013

I have been a member of Big Mike Trading for about 2 years.  It is a big site and I cannot vouch for everything that goes on there, nor do I expect Mike to control the behavior of thousands on the Internet.  But it has been a helpful forum for me to learn more about trading.  I have read hundreds of posts that I have formally "thanked" and hundreds others that I probably should have.

I do not recall seeing Mike bad mouth vendors specifically.  He does caution people from taking trading vendor statements whole-heartedly, which is generally wise advice in the industry.  He also encourages people to shy away from just "following someone" to learn how to trade, and rather do "the hard personal work" needed to seek success more on your own. 

He will shut down conversations/threads when they become bitter and emotional.  Some are frustrated by this, but I think it biases the group towards a more civil discussion and community. 

I have looked at vendor reviews on BMT and have been encouraged to seek some out and disuaded to seek out others based on what people with experience have said.  Those that simply dismiss a vendor without reason are easy to ingore.  Those that post thoughtful evidence for why they feel the way they do have been helpful for me in sifting thourgh a huge set of possible distractions. 

BMT is on the internet, and comes with the internet's troubles.  But on a scale of crazy, anonomity-driven instanity to civil egalitarian discussion, BMT is an 8 on the good side, which is why I spend more time there than other trading related sites.

Big Mike Trading is nothing but the best.

AUTHOR: Will248 - ()

POSTED: Wednesday, July 03, 2013

I don't get any of the claims about Big Mike Trading being a ripoff or a criminal organization. It's a fine moderated site for retail traders where there is no vendor ad spam and vendors with a history of dubious snake oil products are fairly reviewed by the consumer side of retail traders so that vendors with something of real substance to offer stand out that much more. More to it's merit, it's where aspiring traders can freely share trading ideas and advice and the membership community is very helpful

and one can write their own trading journal thread in a helpful and stalker free environment. It's also the most popular forum for futures trading the world over. The elite membership fee is a pittance for a host of well written indicators and contributions from various members, far better value than most intro to trading websites and expensive trading "schools". Give it a try if you are new to trading, you'll be glad you did.

Scam indeed!

AUTHOR: Timm - ()

POSTED: Sunday, May 26, 2013

What you're saying makes perfect sense from my experience using this board in the past. I never could get any help even when I asked for it and got blocked by asking questions. I never understood this until now by what you say here and in your videos. You are waking us up and unmasking the mask. It all makes sense now keep up the good work I like what you're doing!

Big Mike Trading

AUTHOR: Oil Trading Academy - ()

POSTED: Thursday, May 16, 2013

You'll see here in the following link that I'm not the only one to notice what's happening at Big Mike Trading Forum, take a look at the following link:

Big Mike Trading

Here is an excerpt from that page:

"More and more people and websites come to realize how incredibly pathological the Big Mike Trading forum is. Not that we are mightily surprised. We expected it to happen just as we expect this to continue. We expect more and more people to come out with the stories of abuse that is quite common on that forum. We primarily mean the abuse of elementary freedom of expression, but that’s pretty much just for starters. We are not finished yet with our critique and condemnation of the objectionable business practices of the Big Mike Trading forum. You will most likely hear about this forum here again. And again."

So you see I'm not the only one to notice what's really happening at the website Big Mike Trading, the guy is running a massive scam and uses his own board to slander other traders, this man is a criminal who needs to be put into a prison cell where he belongs.

Big Mike Trading Scam

AUTHOR: Oil Trading Academy - ()

POSTED: Tuesday, May 14, 2013

Here is more information on the website Big Mike Trading, I've done the following webpage to explain what Big Mike Trading is doing attacking me online and then trying to cover it up:

Big Mike Trading Scam

The guy is a scam artist like I've never seen before, he is running a criminal organization at his website and this guy needs to be shut down, he is not a trader and does not trade nor does he know anything whatsoever about trading in any way shape or form, his videos are a joke, his courses are worse than a joke, there are no traders whatsoever at his website, the whole entire place is one big gigantic con job.

And to think these first class losers in this life would have the nerve to call me the scam, and mock me each and everyday. Welcome to the world of Freemasons, they control and run all the trading message boards, and they love to scam people that's what they enjoy doing.

I will be filing an FBI report and putting that submission here at Ripp Off Report, I'm calling on the FBI to shut down the website Big Mike Trading and to charge the owner with Conspiracy to use his forum as a means to slander other traders to destroy their business and reputation.

The owner of the website Big Mike Trading is a criminal and a fraud, and again I'm calling on the FBI to shut the website down.
