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.

@Big Mike if you read this can you?

Change title of this thread from

"Taking accountability for your own actions"


"Taking responsibility for your own actions"

My original title does not make total sense. Not sure why I did it that way. I would change but don't see how to do it.


"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

I'm about half way through the interview.....at the part about each person gets from the market what they want.....and the reason things are the way they are is because thats what I wanted.....it resonates with me but its hard to take.....it's exposing things in myself I find distasteful.

This interview is worth a listen. FYI at the end the interviewer does a pitch. But the interview itself is not trying to sell anything and has some excellent points.

Interview with one of our frequent readers, Larry Tentarelli.

Michael Covel talks to trader Larry Tentarelli. Tentarelli started trading his own account after leaving Merrill Lynch in 2003. Covel explores some of Tentarelli’s influences: from Napoleon Hill (taking accountability for your own actions), to Jesse Livermore (“The money isn’t made in the daily fluctuations; the money is made in the big swings”), to Ed Seykota (“everybody gets what they want”). You don’t have to be a computer engineer or rocket scientist to come up with a trading system, nor do you have to have all the time in the world: Tentarelli spends less than 15 minutes a day on average trading his own programs. He also relates several “light bulb” moments he had that led him into trend following: from an investment in Chinese oil to reading about Tom Basso’s experiments with coin flips to determine entry points. Further topics include the distinction between predictive and reactive technical analysis; the importance of connecting and asking questions to those who have more experience than you; and the idea of knowing what you want out of the market.

Hi Liquidcci,

Just wondering if you can re-post the interview as the link is dead? I have found this one - just checking it is the very same?

High Value Actions

Futures Edge on FIO
Here is and article Dr. Gary Dayton wrote on High Value Actions. The idea is to focus on things that improve and benefit ones trading and not on the emotions and feelings that take away from good trading.

Gary is also offering a 4 session course on a Winning Trader Psychology. It begins March 5. He had a free webinar today, Sat Feb 23rd discussing trader psychology and his new program. Check his website and or contact them about it.

I am not a salesman for them. Just passing along info for who may be seeking this kind of assistance.
