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 don’t need to worry about fake reviews.

Was his leaving related to your trading?

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

What were some of the reasons? Was it spending too much time, obsessing over trading? Was it financially motivated, for example the losses in your trading are effecting your daily finances?

All those reasons I think.

I think it's not common to have a partner that understands all points involved in trading.
(i realize how lucky i am with a wife that is as passionate about trading as myself)

But if your partner leaves you for trading, most likely it's not the right partner
because trading can put you in moments of joy and equally in difficult moments
the right partner should be able to be supportive, or if you are loosing too much
money according to the partner, to discuss and find a middle way.

If trading is not the reason, then probably something else might become the
poblem, where trading can just be an acceleration of facts...

I agree, and we don't have enough details to really know what happened. But if it were a long time relationship, or someone the poster felt very serious about, and they left -- it could be a signal of a bigger problem, such as not being responsible with your trading.

Recent posts in the forum reminded me of this thread.

How many of you have the support of your spouse or girlfriend in trading?

Mike

I have a fantastic wife who doesnt care much about money or trading. I have never seen her worry about money and she doesn't spend much either. She never complained when I quit my job and never worry about my trading business. Maybe she believes in me and know I will do the right thing OR she knows that she can manage the house without my help
