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.

Do you actually need a coach/mentor?
It seems you broke your own rules, so you went against your edge. How is a mentor going to stop you doing this?

Do you have confidence in your edge? Have you tested it thoroughly? You know it works?

If you answer no to any of these then that's the issue, imo. If you answer yes to all of these then you are the issue. A mentor won't change that - diligence/discipline will, but that comes from within.

Unless of course you pay a mentor to sit with you to hold your arms back from clicking the mouse.

All my opinion btw so take with a punch of salt.

Davy is right.

You are afraid of having to add capital. Solution; add capital before you have to.

Be more concerned about following your plan than about the outcome of the trade.

Follow the process and accept the results.

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