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.

Avoiding Secondhand Trading Psychology

See the attachment.

Just too good not to post, especially considering that the author is not a trader and the passage is not explicitly referring to trading (it is meant universally). Yet, it is spot on, IMHO. Can't trade what suppresses what you are. The psychology of a second hander (trading something second-hand simply because one believes it has an edge) does not typically work. Must make it one's own. Anyway, the passage says it much better than anything I could say about it. From Freedom from the Known.

If you find the quote useful, you'd probably get lot of mileage out of the book too.
