futures io is the largest futures trading community on the planet, with over 100,000 members. At futures io, our goal has always been and always will be to create a friendly, positive, forward-thinking community where members can openly share and discuss everything the world of trading has to offer. The community is one of the friendliest you will find on any subject, with members going out of their way to help others. Some of the primary differences between futures io and other trading sites revolve around the standards of our community. Those standards include a code of conduct for our members, as well as extremely high standards that govern which partners we do business with, and which products or services we recommend to our members.

At futures io, our focus is on quality education. No hype, gimmicks, or secret sauce. The truth is: trading is hard.

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.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading sites:
  • We are here to help. Just let us know what you need.
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive in our community.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendors advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, we can help you find it.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Thanks for sharing these... I don't know anything about PATs but I've always enjoyed listening to Mack's commentary.

Your mind has to be stronger than your desires

Mack is back with a punch! This video should be watched by all traders because this challenges apply to all of us.

There are two parts, one right at the beginning and the second part starts at around 17 minutes where he goes into a talk about discipline and patience.

Very important lesson! Also, thanks @xplorer for keeping the thread clean, I would like to ask the same from all followers, since the topic is very clear.

Keep up the work!

Wow! What a lesson in a nut shell. Don't care how you trade that was universal, really belongs over in the trading psych threads.

Thanks Mtype for making up for my lack of discipline. I freely admit that given an after the fact chart of the day I can pretty much match 90% of what Mack is going to show at night which has made me an occasional viewer. Wish he had an advanced viewer version of his videos.

We got this down to a science

Talk starts around the 7 minute mark, regarding why most people fail at trading.

Enjoy

Don't be that guy!

Man, Mack is on a roll again.



The talk starts at the beginning. Listen to it.

Also, I'm thinking about doing a project where I would collect all the "soapbox" episodes and cut them together in an audio file. I'll ask him if he would support this and also I would like to ask you, if you know any episodes from the past that has helped you, please do share it and I will include that as well, only PATS talk of course.

Best

Hi PipBandit,

Yes I would. He is very consistent with his work and also does it for free but just like any other trading system the time & effort required to make it work is substantial, at least from what I've experienced. I've been following him since 2014 and as you can see I deeply appreciate his work.
