Welcome to

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.

Bottom line, I think the more you are able to remove psychology and focus on the data that gives you the green/red light for a trade, then the quicker you'll hit consistency.

I'm sorry but this just strikes me as dead wrong. Yes I am not consistently profitable YET but I will be soon. I say that because I am open to the fact that just maybe I have it all wrong. But, that being said I'm not quite sure Denise Shull would agree with this statement. Or Robert Koppel, Mark Douglas, Jason Voss and Ravee Mehta.

I can only imagine the only way to remove psychology from the equation in trading or anything is to die. Sorry to be blunt. Even automated systems have psychology that effects them because the creator or operator turns it on and off as they see fit.

Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will. Perfect: the enemy of Done. per·fec·tion·ist: ultimately one lacking self-confidence
