Welcome to futures.io.

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.

The Diet Cola Scenario

Hi fellow traders

One of the reasons I have been off-line somewhat lately is that I have finished my first novel - "The Diet Cola Scenario". It's now available on Amazon:
Amazon.com: The Diet Cola Scenario (9781453669389): Ross Cossins: Books

Ross Cossins is my nom-de-plume.

The novel is a biotechnology thriller about the unforeseen consequences of developing a biological agent used to eliminate cocaine, and involves the first female Prime Minister (yes really - it's a coincidence that we now actually have one - I wrote most of the book 5-10 years ago), the US President and his relationship with the PM, Australian scientists, investigative journalists, and leaders of a powerful Mexican cocaine cartel.

I don't expect any of you buy traders to buy my novel, but if you are tempted you may also post a Customer Review on Amazon.

Cheers,
Nano

That's awesome, nano. Quite an accomplishment, I'm sure you are very proud!

I've considered writing some trading books. I would be interested in learning more about the "behind the scenes" or "the making of" the book, if you wish to share some tidbits.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Ross Cossins is my nom-de-plume.

So if Ross Cossins is your nom-de-plume does that mean Nano Biotech is your real name

Would you recommend to read it?

Well, several of my friends read it over the past year as proof readers and all said they really enjoyed it. Comments like "it's a high-tech novel but the plot is scary because it is so plausible" were common.

So I do recommend it on that basis, but only others can really judge it.

Cheers,
Nano

Sure, I can put a short story together how I did it as it is relatively easy to get a book published these days and not expensive other than the time it takes to write, edit and proof it.

Actually I do disclose my real name in the book in my short bio.
