Now now

I am now considering to stop posting on this thread about the tradergames.I am getting no feed back of the so called traders on here. all i see on trad2win is spreadbetting talk. and traders posting they pretty charts saying you could have gone long here or short there. I say put you money where you mouth is.

I checked the site the other day & it seems that the idea hasn't really caught on. There have only been a few 2hr FX games this week. I was playing a lot, for fun, a couple of months ago and won 21/25 games - I guess not everyone likes being spanked & the core of winning traders frightened off the punters

cj12 started this thread You may as well trade the futures maket.although I think tradergames is good for traders who don't have much capital,But I would say the 1000 pots are interesting you are only laying out 250.I think the concept is better then spread betting, as long as the platform you are trading on is sound.

cj12 started this thread Hi c6ackp

Agree with you I shouldn't have put my name up on here ( Momtic.) I got over 70% wining streak. maybe I have frighten them off.

In the last 4 weeks have been dead. prior to this I was getting a few games every day. A big corporation firm. as stopped playing, This is what tradergames told me. so it looks like one company was giving them all this business. It is a great shame.

Hello CJ how are you, thanks for you reply. yes i would agree with you on the 1000 pound pots, I would love to have a game but not against you lol.

Thanks for the reply's guys. and I was going to knock this thread on the head I may keep it open a little longer. now

Well, I give up trying to get a game on tradergames.

Am I expected to just sit around all day waiting for a game?? It is more boring than my trading Strategy.

Guys.....I palyed lots of times on Tradergames and have actually exchanged emails with their head of marketing! Looks to me as the site is for the scrapheap.....there doesnt seem to be any effort on their part to want to make it succedd. Sponsoring FXplayer.com would have been a start.

Im up for a private game if anyone wants one?

The web site looks professional, The only think lets it down there are no players to have a game. send an email to Ladbrokes marketing team, maybe they be interested in the concept. Could take off like party poker or 888 under the right management,

Look's like it could be on it's last legs as there have only been 4 games in the past month!!

I tried to get hold of the guy who was marketing the site a couple of months ago, but he's "no longer involved with tradergames"...

Good fun while it lasted...

Hi Guys,

just thought i'd add my input. Whether a new or experienced trader people would rather pit their wits and strats in the real market. Now i understand the point of if everone is in negative territory and the one who loses the least still wins the pot. Still a winner and good for your pocket. Isnt this promoting negative behaviour in trading in that even though you are losing you are still a winner. Im not a phsycologist but the thought of trading in real market conditions and losing but still winning breeds good thoughts intrinsically but are you following your owns systems rigidly. Maybe you are violating all of your rules just to win the pot knowing you only have a fixed loss just like a stop in the market. Except your not just doing this on 1 trade but maybe hundreds. Next you trade the real market and your trading behaviour has changed as you didnt stick to your rules.

Maybe the answer is in the name of the website 'tradergames'. Its a game for trading and at most taking gamble against only a few players and not calculating your true risk in the real market against other traders. Spreadbetting has its negative points and so does this but hey each and everone to their own.

This reply is not to shoot anyone down as im nowhere near a trader in the least.

Just reading and learning still

just realised this post was from a few years ago but hell i'l leave my post
