Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

love these (i find a lot of parallels between success/life & quantum physics...and feel parallels in what i see with trading.

Quantum physics is not about any particular thing & is still not really understood. Quantum physics however deals with our very existence and is an amalgamation of everything we see & do. lol many people phoo this and each to his own...but w/o quantum and light trading would not have been possible. Enjoy !!

I totally agree. Studying quantum physics was one of the major things that helped me develop my edge. Now I don't use anything that has to do with physics formulas in my systems; but what physics did for me was open my mind to looking at the markets in extremely unconventional ways. Chaos theory helped as well.

Now that I reflect on it more, what I think these two fields really did for me was severely reduce anchoring bias in my perspective. So in the last several months I've been noticing myself spotting thinking errors in my head much sooner then I use to. And what this obviously does is allows me to learn and troubleshoot at a more rapid pace. I've found that ruling things out that don't work the way I has been just as important as figuring out the things that do.

Keep things complex. But not more complex then they need to be.
