IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU AND I BECOME FRIENDS

As mentioned earlier this afternoon, I have an important matter to discuss with you. There’s been chatter on this topic since late last year, but the time has come to start putting plans into motion. We are officially going to expand our content offerings to include an upcoming iBankCoin Investor Conference. I need your input to start organizing the event.

The idea would be a two day weekend event hosted in Las Vegas, hosted by Chess and myself. We will be selecting a premier hotel on the strip to host our event where we will be conducting 2 full days of content rich classes on various investing topics. We’ll arrange group rates for the hotel, should you choose to stay at the venue.

Below is a link to a simple survey. We need to gauge audience and timing. Thank you for your attention in this matter. This poll will make its way around…only vote once.

    Perhaps we schedule the event on the anniversary of the 87 crash. Will you be back for that?

      OA, I would be happy with any of the three date options, but am only allowed to click on one. Selected Q1, figuring it’s going to get the least love…

    Dang dude. You’re messing up my plan to meet on a yacht. That was a weird premonition I had yesterday.
    I don’t think I would amass the required coin by the time I attend this conference. Lol.

    I also chose Fall, but pricing is also a big consideration. Looking forward to it though.

    Selected Fall, though with a month or two of lead time I can make just about anything work. Also down for New York as an alternate location.

          I’m a bit of the opposite, I used to live on the West coast, been to Vegas a number of times. Haven’t been to NYC though. Would probably make a week out of NYC and bring the wife. Flip side is I could do Vegas a couple of days then we could hop to somewhere else on the coast. Either place works.

            I’ve read all of these replies. Auntie just loves going out of town, no matter what. Juice, if it was NYC, she would flip out with excitement. She’s yet to visit there.

    I am moving this fall, Alaska to Washington, so the fall time frame won’t work for me. January would be better. The energy seems to be pointing to the fall slot, which would’ve been my first choice.

    OA, off topic, but I’m interested in learning about trading options. To do that, my plan is to considering join and follow your premium service for a month or so. Sorry if this is a repeat question, but can you recommend a book to read in order to educate myself and best utilize the premium club? Thanks in advance.

    Hammy, I think the educational video’s he’s got on the TA website are far better to start off with than any books… Also if you join afterhours, there is a 5 night “beginners guide to options” videos back in the history and a really good 5 part series on trading breakouts… I learned more in those videos than I ever did reading books on this stuff.

    preference for early next year March/April only because this fall/winter is so busy at the boulders house. But I’m there regardless of when it happens. Vegas makes the most sense for most people, logistically, I would think: Every major center has direct, inexpensive flights to Vegas.
