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.

That's because you set this thread up as a "Ask a Question" thread from the home page.

So those big huge banners you are seeing on every post saying "Does this post answer your question", you need to click one of them to select a post as an answer before you can use the thanks button.

Mike

Thanks mike. I was guessing that might be it.

Good trading to everyone.

NP - almost deleted - not much of a contribution. The clip I found on visualizations didn't seem like a good representation - but seems crazy enough to possibly help (whatever works). Should have just waited for Wildman's follow up.

Yup on the OTM. Catch up with you soon.

Thanks for your efforts.

I don't use google but if you'd like to do me a favor you could post my question on Dr Brett's blog.

I visualize what I will do with the money, not the trading itself. House, car, beach...

Thank-you.

Good trading to everyone.

When I started the thread I was hoping people would post/share examples of the visualizations they use.

I do have one myself, howver with some blocks around accepting abundance, I was hoping others would share what they use. Perhaps if 20 or 30 examples were posted I might be able to improve mine. (I didn't want to post it so as to not stem the torrent of examples.)

This isn't what I use - just the outline of what it entails........

For my trading I have a few sets of imagery:
  • One is trading in the flow like an expert kayaker catching anticpating each turn the rocks and using all to his advantage catching every turn with effortless ease and perfection
  • In another I have a notebook with a set of tables where I look up values and times and it tells me where each turn will be in advance and perfectly so I am catching every high and low to the tick.
  • In a third I have a small office with a team of people each with a set task (doing an andrew's pitchfork, or certain retracements, of time formulae each callilng the results out to a central person would is co-ordinating and melding the estimates - like a control room.
-----------------

For the trading visualizations none are quite right. - though 2 occurs most frequently.

Well it's late and 3:30 comes early....

PS Perhaps some kind soul will ask Linda R what she uses or ones that others have shared with her, that she thought were really good. She should have some gems!

Good trading to everyone.

I recent experience has gelled my desire to move.
In reply to a friends email I wrote:

Nearest town 20 miles away. No other homes on my lake.

Home by a beautiful lake, woods all around, out on my dock, have a coffee go
for a swim and then paddle around the lake with only the ducks for company!

Come back and check how many million my computer prg has made for me today.
Order another shipment of gold bars.

Plan my next trip
Hiking the Himalayas,
Whitewater the Ganges headwaters
Hiking and gold panning in the Yukon
Surfing in Hawaii
Hiking the swizz alps
..

Good trading to everyone.

I have written a small book on creating with the aid of visualization.

I the book I created 3 visualizations:

The first is the abundance - it has the home I would like and lifestyle and health etc.

The second is the way of achieving it - this is a visualization of myself trading with perfection

The third is myself being victorious - this includes what I will do to help the world with my wealth. A little bit like the longer term plan. So if part 1 is making $x millions via trading then this part is having brought forth my inventions in green energy, ending pollution, restoring the planet's health (reforestation, cleaning rivers and oceans and skies, establishing wildlife protection areas and so on.

Good trading to everyone.

One thing I got from a DVD of Jack Canfield on the Law of Abundance was that 1hour of inner work - meditation visualization etc is worth 8 hours of outer work - studying charts, building trading programs, screen time etc

So I need to spend more time on the inner work!

Good trading to everyone.

Here is something from a self-hypnosis tape on abundance:

Allow your thoughts to roam upon the question,

"How is wealth created?"

and you will soon discover that all wealth is created in the mind and that every person who has ever created wealth has created it first in their mind and then proceeded to project into physical reality the mental images they have been nurturing and holding within their minds.

---------
I liked it. Now to do it!

Good trading to everyone.

Yes.

In the self-hypnosis tape, after the relaxation part, he guides you through a visualization to release 5 basic fears and so clear the blocks preventing you from allowing abundance to flow into your life. These are:
fear of poverty,
fear of criticism,
fear of loss of love,
fear of illness,
fear of death.

Then in another part you are given suggestion to release and forgive anyone who has harmed you.

These are before the actual abundance suggestions

Good trading to everyone.
