  1. It's part of having an edge in the market. I have been amazed at how often they do seem to work, but nothing is %100. It's just a bigger probability that these patterns will repeat themselves, as opposed to just going out and taking trades with no edge.
  2. Thanks JD, I tried to open a live chat, but nobody home. I sent them a message. I usually record the open and my trades, but for some reason the recorder did not start this morning.
  3. DAS is telling us that the replay function is available to everyone now, and free for the first month. When I try to switch to replay, I get a message that I do not have permission. I watched the video on how to use it, but still can not get it to work. Has anyone else been able to use it yet?
  4. I use the Genovation, and although it took some configuration and getting used to using it, I really like it so far.
  5. Found these while searching for chart pattern illustrations. Thought I'd share them with the community.
  6. "The hardest easy money you will ever make".
  7. I went on a mission to learn as much as I could about chart patterns. This is the best web page that I could find that explains in detail many of the common chart patterns that we look for as day traders. Hope you find it as useful and educational as I did. https://school.stockcharts.com/doku.php?id=chart_analysis:chart_patterns
  8. Absolutely, even my wife and son had a great time, and we are all looking forward to Jacksonville!
  9. Just put our names on the sign up sheet. Looks like 65 now. See you all there, looking forward to it!
  10. I agree on all counts. I didn't know when I opened my account that I was being directed to download Sterling, or that I had to specify DAS. By the time I downloaded the platform and logged on, I was on the hook for the full $150, for the calendar month, no pro rated charges. The fact that they sent me someone else's logon info by mistake was troubling as well. I did have to contact them again today, but the logon email with the link to download DAS did finally arrive. I opened an account with IB today, will probably only keep the CMEG until the end of the month, which will give me time to get my IB account up and running. I hope that there are users who will find this information useful. That was my intent with this post.
  11. Good morning @Justin, thank you for your reply. The fact that you are able to pull one sentence out of the information I provided and are able to use that to alert me to the fact that it makes the warning I tired to provide useless, tells me I have not been clear enough in the point I'm trying to make. Ironically, the reason I left out those details was in the interest of clarity, but obviously I failed. My thought was that the specific details of my issue would be helpful to someone trying to resolve my issue, but what I'm trying to do here is provide folks with information that I wish I had when I was trying to decide on a broker. You say "Bad customer service won't deter people from using the service." I should point out that I'm really not looking to deter people from using the service. I'm simply trying to provide information. However, from my point of view, bad customer service is exactly what is driving me to find a new broker. As I have said in the past, when things are working well with CMEG, it's great. But being ignored when there is an issue is unacceptable to me, given what is involved here. So, since I am still unable to trade, thanks to the fact that I'm continuing to be ignored by CMEG, I will try to synopsize; 1. On October 17, 2019, I sent an email to CMEG customer service, requesting they switch my account from Sterling Elite Pro, to DAS. 2. On October 18, 2019, I received this; Your request to switch your account from the Traders Elite Pro Platform supported by Sterling to the version supported by DAS has been received. As per your request, your account will be switched to the DAS platform. Please note that due to processing requirements this switch can only occur at the end of this calendar month and you will be able to use the requested platform on the first trading day of the new month. You will have full use of the current platform until the switch is processed at the end of the month. Please also note if you have any open positions, these will have to be closed before the platform switch can occur. An email confirmation will be sent on the last business day of this month advising of your new credentials and platform download link. If you have any questions in the meantime, please call us at 833-445-9086 or send an email to [email protected] Thanks for being our client - have a great day! Your team here at Capital Markets Elite Group LTD. 3. I did not receive the email as promised, and I had been warned that if I logged on to my account on November 1 or later with sterling, there would be a full charge of $150, plus the full charge for DAS, since there are no pro-rated charges. 4. When I was unable to trade on November 1, I called the support number, which I have stored in my phone. I put the phone on speaker, and after 2 hours, gave up, and left a message. An hour later, after not receiving a reply to my voice message, I tried again. After approximately 20 additional minutes on hold, a person finally answered. I explained my situation, and was assured I would receive the email with my new logon information that day, Friday, November 1. I later received an email stating that I would receive the email that day. 5. The promised email never arrived, and I am still waiting on November 4, 2019, and still unable to trade. What if I were calling because I was in a trade, that I needed help with? What if I had lost power, or my internet connection? When everything works, CMEG is great! I'm just trying to warn folks to please, use max loss in DAS, and set it to close the position if max loss is hit. If you don't know how to do that, there is a video available in the education area of the website.
  12. Hey man, it happens to all of us. You came to the right place for help. Glad it worked out. I will be signing up with IB on Monday, so thanks for posting back that it worked.
  13. Yes, I got so frustrated that I actually considered retiring from trading completely. This learning curve is hard enough without having to deal with PDT, and offshore brokers with zero customer service. I'm looking at it differently now. I'm actually lucky that I wasn't in the middle of a trade problem that could have wiped out my account when I discovered that no matter what, I'm on my own. I'm convinced that they have more business than they can handle, so I will be helping them by closing my account. It's sad, because things are great with CMEG, until they are not. Then it is as bad as it gets. I'm sure that I will still be unable to trade on Monday, because they are refusing to do 5 minutes worth of work, and it boggles my mind. I discussed it with my wife, and we decided that we are going to close the CMEG account, take the tax hit, and open a real account with IB. Calling them first thing Monday morning. Will keep everyone updated on how long it takes to get my money back from CMEG. Right now, I wouldn't be at all surprised if they continue to ignore me, and I never get it back. Not sure what recourse I would have, should they decide to go that route. Please, everyone....If you are trading with a CMEG account, be sure to enable max loss in DAS. If a problem occurs and your account gets blown up, it's over.
