We will probably never tire of Big Mike and his circus of dimwitted clowns that form the only forum under the Sun that is so ridiculous that is no longer even funny. You can’t help but plainly feel sorry for these losers and their dear leader (Comrade Mike), the silly chap who takes himself way, way too seriously desperately trying to pretend to be what he most definitely is not, never was and never will be, and what happens to be a profitable day trader, a small detail perhaps for some, but everything if you want to maintain an aura of authority, authenticity, and credibility in the trading world.
The profitable trader he is not and this article is not exactly about it (because frankly that requires no further comments), but about how he tries to pretend that he is. That’s much more interesting in a weird kind of way if you are into pathologies that he and his forum are the best walking (if forums can walk, we are not sure about it) examples of such out there.
Let’s talk about how he does it using one of more recent examples of that and let’s relate this example to something else we briefly pointed out in our previous post.
Check out the first image below. It shows an exchange beetwen the Loser in Chief of the Big Mike Trading forum and one of his more dedicated tools for discrediting chief’s competitors, meaning other vendors, known as bobbyacim. He was a very dedicated tool and pretty obtuse as well, but the latter is true about most of Big Mike’s tools.
He is not anymore. That’s because the tool, provoked by Big Mike, decided to challenge his BS and demanded to know if Big Bozo himself was profitable. Of course, he is not. There is no good reason to believe it. Not a shred of evidence to suggest so.
Remember, that’s the same guy who blew tons of money on his misguided trading education only to start a trading forum for his fellow losers.
By his own admission (see the image that follows), this guy blew a couple of accounts. He says that he is “like most day traders.” Well, we beg to differ. He is like most dumb day traders.
How exactly did he manage to become profitable when running a big forum while he had failed in this endeavor before having all the time at his disposal to master trading? No one of sound mind will take his claim of being a profitable trader seriously unless it is backed by solid evidence. That will never be coming, though. You can bet on that.
And we would never believe it unless it’s audited by a reputable firm. Remember, that’s the guy who has no problem lying even in his site’s Terms of Service. That’s someone who cannot be trusted at all. He is a congenital liar. He has yet to “audit” his real name!
As you can see in the next image, to prevent any further challenges in this direction, he banned the first of the challengers from the forum and closed the thread right after that, obviously afraid that others might attempt a similar challenge.
What a pitiful cowardly loser this guy is!
You may think that Big Mike had a right to demand the proof from bobbyacim. Well, yes and no. Mostly no, in our opinion, simply because he should first apply this to every BS artist he has ever invited to give webinars to his crowd of dipshits and losers. Only then can he claim the right to demand it from anyone else. Otherwise, singling out bobbyacim for such a treatment is simply unfair. Bobbyacim is (most likely) not a vendor, unlike Big Mike, though he could be a shill for one. It’s the vendors who should be expected to provide a proof (or, at least, solid evidence) of profitability or trading prowess and not the regular members of his forum. That includes Big Mike too, if he wants to have any credibility at all.
Closing a thread that abruptly is rather uncommon on that forum, especially if the thread is about a vendor’s business. That is the case here too. As we pointed out in our previous post on this blog, when Big Mike banned Jam of StrategicDayTrading.com, he kept the thread open. The same happened when he banned Mr. Roger Felton as you can see from the following two images, the first of which shows the Big Mike decision to ban this vendor (on page 26) and the other shows that the thread is still open having reached page 38.
That’s the pattern he likes to keep there, the pattern of allowing his minions to attack his competitors as long as it pleases him or them. But whenever he feels threatened, he closes the thread right away.
Once again, only a pitiful, desperate loser and man of no integrity can act like that. And that’s what this guy is.
As far as bobbyacim is concerned, as you could probably tell, we have no sympathy for this guy at all. He was largely a malicious but useful tool for Big Bozo, pretty much like Fat Tails (Harald Steinhaus), but much dumber than the latter. It’s also possible that he was in cahoots with the vendor that thread was discussing. In one of his earlier posts on that forum, he had made it clear that he was considering starting a vendor business. It’s conceivable that he decided to team up with someone else, like Charles Booth, the vendor discussed in that thread. This guy too has a somewhat dubious reputation, but that can be said about many vendors who were once embraced by Big Mike. Yes, he was one of those too. Not a shocking surprise at all!
We may return to bobbyacim in one of our future posts when discussing dedicated Big Mike tools. He is a very good example of such a tool and may still serve us as an inspiration for another post.
Let us finish this article with a message to all the Big Mike tools. Here it is.
You will never be too useful for him. The guy is a user and he will dump you the moment he finds it useful for him. That’s what tools are for, after all, and that’s how users treat them. They don’t get married to their tools and only stupid tools get married to their users.
