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.

lol @BigMike,

On our orchard my brother and I were running a few years ago. We had some hippys that were working for us picking cherries that weren't very inspired. So my brother asked me to give them a peptalk. I go and listen to them (they are suffering the effects of last nights hangover) and listen to them talk about how they want to change the world by inventing a perpetual motion machine.

I basically told them they should never give up on following their dreams. Anyways they seemed much more cheerful so I left to check on other stuff.

That evening I found out from my brother they came to him right after I talked to them and asked for their check. When He asked why they told him that I had fired them to go follow their dreams!

After that our standard response to all pickers was - if you dont want to be here we dont want you here either!

Obviously their dream was to not have to work, you most certainly inspired them.lol
Cheers John
