Am I tied in to any kind of membership contract?

No! Of course we would love you to stay, but you can cancel at any time and will not have to make any further monthly payments.

I like to bet but am not a trader. Is it still worth me joining the site?

Absolutely. Our site is driven by people with a wide range of motivations, from full-on professional trading to casual betting.

Do any professional traders contribute to the site?

Yes. We have a mixture of pro, part-time and amateur traders covering all skill levels, all of whom are very active on our forum. Check out the member trades gallery for an idea of how profitable the information shared can be.

Is this for real? How do I know it is legitimate?
