What's The Crack ?

Recommended Posts

So whats the crack regarding the ongoing legal issues between Big Mike and AMP GLOBAL CLEARING ?

 

Are AMP behaving like the typical cry baby brokerage company and trying to get negative reviews removed by throwing their weight about?

 

Has "big mike" lived up to his name, and proved he's got a pair of brass balls and wont back down to threats ?

 

I cant be arsed to sign up for an account over there, fill me in someone. Is this really a case of a forum owner with integrity ? whats the world coming too, they'll de discussing trading at the zoo next !

I've never paid the BMT forum any attention either. There's a post (seemingly from moderators or 'Big Mike' himself) clearly aimed at discrediting a vendor whose (totally free) blog I have followed and found helpful.

 

I'm not really sure why AMP would ever get so concerned over the allegations unless someone in senior management there is somewhat pious and self-righteous? How many out-and-out con men are out there with dozens of websites proclaiming them as such, yet continue to swindle unsuspecting marks to the tune of millions a year? Why would AMP get wound up over a few bad reviews on a forum or whatever? Haven't they got more important things on their mind?

Well, he's taking donations for his legal defence. One would hope that these donations will be returned if Amp has to pay all legal costs

 

Seems like he's standing up to AMP, but I'm not sure that's wise given that it's seemingly a member with a grudge against AMP that has made comments that have got him in trouble (it appears that a member joined and with his first posts made negative comments about AMP because he worked for them and they didn't pay him).

 

Reading the legal documents that were posted, it states that a large % of AMP clients are members of BigMike's site and so there is some damage to their company from disparaging comments that are alleged to be false. They're suing him for $50,000 and all comments removed etc.

 

I feel it's always sad when people's comments on a forum end up in a court case, and in my opinion, reflects badly on those that have brought it about.

Hopefully any half decent judge will throw this case stright out of court and award costs to "big mike".

 

The management at AMP appear to be deluded half wits. How can they reach the conclusion that many of their customers are members of big mikes forum ?

 

Was "big mike" actually mad enough to pop over to AMP with a list of his members names and adresses and allow AMP to check them against their customer list :rofl:

 

Even if "big mike" was mad enough to help AMP establish this fact, how does "big mike" even know who his members are because apart form those mad enough to pay for premium membership, they are simple annonymous usernames on a forum.

 

The reality of course is that AMP assume that their customers are members of "big mikes" forum, and that anyone actually gives a flying feck, and on that basis, they start throwing their weight around, and trying to claim 50K in damages, which to be honest is practically chump change. FFS havnt they got a business to be running, or is it "teh office junior" whose responsible for this action.

 

It's not often you'll find me defending a forum owner, but in this case I hope "big mike" takes these clowns to the feckin cleaners, and if he does, I hope he'll have the gonads to expose every single prior communication between himself and AMP futures before they threw their toys out of the pram. If he doesnt, leak the info to me, and I will :rofl:

Even being in constant research for useful resources for trading I've never come across with BMT forum. Just find out about it here. I think the point of debates is a try of a broker firm to get a leverage on internet forums as a whole source of "unbiased" traders information. As traders used to seek a trust in the forums, (me too, as I found my broker Hotforex, browsing FPA folders) it is very important for broker to sort out this different marketing channel for them. That's it. This case show us what side will get the win and determine in some degree future points of contacts between these two Forex related projects.

Just checked 'big mikes' and I'm pleased to say that there's at least one judge in the USA with a functioning brain, and the case has been kicked out of court.

 

No idea what happened regarding costs, but in my opinion AMP FUTURES actions where clearly vexacious. I sincerely hope their crass stupidity comes back and bites them on the arse.

 

Generally speaking, I like brokers, and I despise forum owners, but in this case I'll make an exception. Amp Futures what a bunch of tossers :crap: "Big Mike" balls of brass and a prince amongst forum owners :cool:

 

Can you imagine any other forum owner doing similar ? I cant

    • Date : 11th November 2019. Events to Look Out For Next Week 11th November 2019.Important events are coming up this week, with UK, China and US inflation and GDP releases.Monday – 11 November 2019 Gross Domestic Product (GBP, GMT 09:30) – UK growth has “slowed materially” this year due to Brexit uncertainty and global trade wars. September forecasts see GDP growth steady, while the preliminary outcome for Q3 is anticipated to slow down. Tuesday – 12 November 2019 ILO & Average Earnings Index 3m/y (GBP, GMT 09:30) – UK Earnings with the bonus-excluded figure are seen unchanged at 3.8% y/y in the three months to September. UK ILO unemployment is expected steady at 3.9%. ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 10:00) – Economic Sentiment for November is projected at -22.7 from the -22.8 seen last month, as the current conditions indicator for Germany turned negative. The overall Eurozone reading though is expected to decline slightly further to -32.5 from -23.5. A lower than expected outcome ties in with the stagnation in market sentiment. Wednesday – 13 November 2019 Interest Rate Decision, Monetary Policy Statement and Press Conference (NZD, GMT 01:00) – The RBNZ is widely expected to proceed with a 25 bp cut to 0.75% as it continues to ease policy amid the slowing in growth. However, it will be interesting to see whether RBNZ will signal further easing in contrast with the latest encouraging economic data. Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 09:30) – The UK CPI is expected to rebound to a 1.8% y/y rate in October after dipping to 1.7% in September and August from 2.1% in July. Consumer Price Index (USD, GMT 13:30) – A 0.3% October headline CPI rise is anticipated with a 0.2% core price increase, following respective September readings of flat and 0.1%. As-expected gains would result in a headline y/y increase of 1.7% for a third consecutive month, just as core prices rise 2.4% y/y for a third consecutive month. An up-tilt in y/y gains into Q1 of 2020 is expected due to harder comparisons and some lift from tariff increases that should leave gains in the 2.4% area, which may help ease concerns about persistent inflation undershoots of the Fed’s 2% objective. Powell’s 2-day Testimony (USD, GMT 16:00) – Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell testifies before Congress, providing a broad overview of the economy and monetary policy. Thursday – 14 November 2019 Employment Data (AUD, GMT 00:30) – While the unemployment rate is expected to have increase at 5.3% in October, employment change is expected to have stabilized, at 15K compared to 14.7K last month. Retail Sales ex Fuel (GBP, GMT 09:30) – UK Retail Sales are expected to have dipped with a -0.9% ex-auto figure on a m/m basis. Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 13:30) – Eurozone Q3 GDP growth held steady at 0.2% q/q – a better than expected report that highlighted once again that it is a mistake to reduce the Eurozone economy to the German manufacturing sector alone. The same outcome is expected on Thursday as well, at 0.2% q/q for Eurozone preliminary reading. Friday – 15 November 2019 Retail Sales (USD, GMT 14:30) – A 0.4% October gains for both the retail sales headline and the ex-auto figures have been estimated, following a -0.3% September headline dip with a -0.1% ex-auto figure. Gasoline prices should give a boost to retail activity given an estimated 4% increase for the CPI gasoline index. Unit vehicle sales should ease in October with a dip to an estimated 17.0 mln pace from 17.2 mln in September. Real consumer spending is expected to grow at a 2.6% rate in Q4, following the 2.9% Q3 clip. Always trade with strict risk management.

    • It is really an amazing too to use, if it really works as it is shown on picture. Many strategies are always based on these high and lows.
    • It is good to see that there are few ones who are sharing their tools for free so that many traders can have a good trade day. Good to see a nice post.
    • EOS Begins A Gradual Rally; Can It Reach The Resistance Level At $6?   Key Resistance Levels: $5, $6, $7 Key Support Levels: $3, $2,$1   EOS Price Long-term Trend: Bullish EOS is in a bullish move but it is encountering penetration at the $3.70 price level. The market pulls back and continues to trade below $3.70. EOS has made concerted efforts at the resistance so as to move up the price ladder.   Previously, the bulls have successfully prevailed over the downtrend line as the coin moves up. Similarly, if the current resistance level is surmounted, the coin will move up again to either $4.60 or $5 price level. Nonetheless, if EOS fails to move up, the coin will fall and find support at $3.20.   EOSUSD - Daily Chart Daily Chart Indicators Reading: The RSI period 14 levels 58 signify that EOS is falling and approaching the sideways trend zone. EOS is at the point of a bullish crossover which means that EOS may rise. The downtrend line has already been broken as the market went up. It is unlikely for the selling pressure to resume and price fall below the downtrend line. If it does price may retrace to a low of $ 3.20.   EOS/USD Medium-term bias: Bullish On the 4-hour chart, the EOS fell to a low of $2.60 in September and October to resume a bullish move. In September, the market went up but was resisted and it dropped to another low at $2.60.   At this low, a trend line is drawn to establish the level of price movement. The uptrend is said to be continuing if the price makes higher highs and higher lows. Nevertheless, if the market falls and breaks below the trend line, the uptrend is said to be ended.   EOSUSD- 4-Hour Chart 4-hour Chart Indicators Reading EOS is below 40% of the stochastic indicator signifying that price is in a bearish momentum. The EMAs are trending upward suggesting that EOS is rising.   General Outlook for EOS EOS is in a bullish market. At a low of $2.60 in September the bull market was short-lived as it was terminated at $3.20 price level. The bulls embarked on another bullish move in October but faced another resistance at $3.70 after breaking the initial resistance at $3.20.   As already indicated in the price analysis, EOS may move up, if it takes care of $3.70 price level. However, on the 4-hour chart, if EOS pulls back and breaks below the trend line, the market will drop again.   EOS Trade Signal Instrument: EOSUSD Order: Buy Entry price: $3.40 Stop: $2.50 Target: $6.0 Source: https://learn2.trade
