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.

... I learned what it felt like to trade and win in a string, ride the market surf. The take-away, was the feeling.
That experience cannot be measured.
Now that i know what it feels like
I have not only the confidence that it can be done but the experience of feeling it.

Hi Don,

I think you have been given a rare gift with this experience.

Currently, I have trouble creating the visualization of myself being in the zone. It would be so much easier if I had had a day like yours. I appreciate you sharing this experience with the board, and so by extension, with me. I am going to take what you have shared and try again to create a visualization for myself of being in the zone.

"The bible makes it plain that whatever you imaging, you can do. If you cannot make a mental picture of a thing you cannot create it. ....but if you can imagine and visualize a thing you can make dreams come true."
-W. D. Gann, The Magic Word

"Anything the human mind can believe, the human mind can achieve."
-Napolean Hill, Grow Rich with Peace of Mind

"If you can dream it you can do it"
-wall hanging.

Good trading to everyone.
