The community is one of the friendliest you will find on any subject, with members going out of their way to help others. Some of the primary differences between futures io and other trading sites revolve around the standards of our community. Those standards include a code of conduct for our members, as well as extremely high standards that govern which partners we do business with, and which products or services we recommend to our members.

At futures io, our focus is on quality education. No hype, gimmicks, or secret sauce. The truth is: trading is hard.

With futures io, you can find honest trading reviews on brokers, trading rooms, indicator packages, trading strategies, and much more. Our trading review process is highly moderated to ensure that only genuine users are allowed, so you donít need to worry about fake reviews.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading sites:
  • We are here to help. Just let us know what you need.
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive in our community.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendors advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, we can help you find it.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Trading Beyond The Matrix - Van Tharp Free Download


Trailer Guy View Post
If anyone wants to do some work on themselves and become a system treader with an edge there is a guide available for under $5.00. Van Tharp the very well documented trading coach is offering the paperback version of his newer book, "Trading Beyond the Matrix" for the cost of shipping (hunt around on his web site). Of course he is hopeful you will sign up for a seminar but he says you have no further obligation.

The first part of the book is a current re-cap of his prior writings on developing a system that fits you, what reasonable metrics are and some system comparison tools (noticeably missing in some parts of this web site that focuses on bell and whistle indicators).

If anybody thinks they can be successful with someone else's canned system I urge you to read the first couple of chapters of Curtis Faiths book on the famous Turtle Traders, or watch some of the seminars Big Mike so graciously arranges for us.

Most of the book is devoted to exercises and meditation methods to help you develop a state of mindfulness. Big parts of it are written by other traders describing how they managed to change their thinking (spoiler alert it isn't by doing a weekend retreat and coming home a different person). Maybe Tharp and his methods aren't for you. But I do think that you should consider that he is offering an organized, step by step method to move in the direction of this thread. He says he has included everything that is in his seminars. He has been doing this for a long time and is careful to include typical responses and objections from people attending his seminars that I found very helpful. For example in meditations where the practitioners appeal to a higher power what do you do if you don't believe in a higher power?

I have found that books that have been around for quite a while can be found in PDF format for free download.

Try searching for popular titles and with some patience you will find what you are looking for. Only download from sites that don't required you to register etc. to avoid getting a lifetime of spam afterwards.

<<< Link Deleted because it is a violation here on Futuresio AND because the link no longer contained the full document>>>
Thank you xplorer for helping me along the path as newbies frequently do.

But, you can find many books like Trading in the Zone and The Disciplined Trader for free download also if you are diligent.

=====

Also, in reference to Curtis Faith and his book "Way of the Turtle". He is a complete fraud.

I could waste a lot of everyone's bandwidth expounding on stories about my search for someone to teach me or where I could learn to trade. I have spent decades in the search but now finally on the right path.

My New Year's Resolution is to become an active commenter on Futuresio and not just a learker.

Trade Well My Friends,
Mark

I am not going to delete your message because the content for the link you provided actually just offers the book index, but bear in mind that trading books are generally copyrighted content and so either uploading them onto FIO or providing a link can always be construed as copyright breach.

As long as the book is copyrighted (most books are), no link should be posted on FIO to pirated copies of such books.
