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.

Which sports do you play?

Which sports do you like to play?

I like to play tennis and volleyball. I coach my kid's volleyball team, starting my 4th season now (won 2 championships, almost 3). All 3 of my kids (triplets) are on my team so that keeps me busy. I also like to play basketball but I'm not very good as I never played much when I was younger, and I'm not in good enough shape to run up and down a full court for an extended period of time, but I love the game. In the winter I like to snow ski as well, either here in So. Cal or in Utah, where my sister lives.

I find a lot of similarities between trading and sports, especially tennis, where there is a lot of mental/psychological challenges to overcome when playing an individual sport like tennis, and you often have to think about whether or not to take high probability, low reward shots or high-risk shots with certain point gains if executed properly (risk mgt). It also helps to size up your opponent during the warm-up (pre-market) to see where their strengths and weaknesses are.

What do you like to play?

I like tennis the most, I play usually 3 times a week.
I also play soccer once a week, and like to play volleyball, beach volley and basketball when I have a chance.
