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.

Let go and Let God:

In going back over this chapter, I find I might have judged this too hastily as overly spiritual.
Rereading it, it seems to be saying that the faith in yourself is as powerful as the "normal"
principal of spiritual faith, and this may be my absolute number one greatest problem with my trading.

On page 80, this passage hit me like a ton of bricks as crystalizing what happens when I initiate a trade.....

"A mind saturated with fear of failure or images of unwanted results, can no more accomplish, create, or
produce anything of value, than a stone can violate the laws of gravity and fly upwards in the air."

I know where this fear comes from and why, it's from my not having a profitable trading plan and here i am
trying to make a living with it anyway. But hey, just like the header to this forum say's

"Psychology and Money Management
This forum is where successful traders spend most of their time and where struggling traders never visit. The psychology and money management forum is where you learn to become a profitable day trader"....
like Carl Spackler says, "at least I got that goin' for me"

so...i'm getting better

I know I am not the only one who feels this way,

oh well, i'm going over it again, and trying to pull more out of this
valuable book.
