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.

Hacking Flow - The Flow Genome Project

"The Flow State: Flow states, peak experiences, in the zone, runner’s high, being unconscious—the lingo is endless. The experience though lives up to the hype. Time slows down, self vanishes, there’s a complete merger between action and awareness— it almost sounds like nonsense, but fifty years of serious research says otherwise. Flow states are now known to optimize performance, enhance creativity, drive innovation, , accelerate learning, amplify memory and underpin happiness itself."

Here are a couple of videos by Steven Kotler to start the discussion . . . not sure how to embed them so will provide links . . . .

Total viewing time is about 1 hour . . .

My desire is to have all members (but especially those with Advanced Trader after their name, since they are survivors of this game, presumably successful and experience flow state on a daily basis) discuss their own experience with flow states, peak experiences, being in the zone, etc. as it relates to their trading . . .

How do you achieve such a state, personal experience (stories), guidance, mentoring, routine used to achieve the flow state, . . . I would like for this to be an open ended discussion . . .

Come play in my sand box . . .


You get out of trading what you want. With daily intention, you can carve a trading career, more importantly a life, directed and produced by you . . . Bella
