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.

What exact process did they use to make their psychological shift?

I changed my definition of a successful trade;

I does not matter if the trade made a profit or a loss; what matters is if I followed my trading plan.

If all my criteria to enter a trade were met and I closed the trade according to my plan then it was a successful trade.

Once I got away from the fear of being wrong , of taking a loss and of missing a move and just concentrated on the process of trading I became profitable.

It is hard to find the Truth when you start your search with a preconceived notion of what the Truth will be.
