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.

-- Big Mike

I've always liked this Lincoln quote, and think it may apply to trading in certain circumstances (overconfidence):

"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power."
Abraham Lincoln

I think the most intellectual trait someone can have is being able to correctly identify their own weaknesses and areas where they don't have knowledge more so than demonstrating knowledge in a field.

I just noticed this thread but I've been putting together some trading one liners for a while in my journal. I'm sure some, or maybe a lot, of them are from things I've read, but it's something that made sense to me at the time so I put it in there, here's a few:

-This is a world-class competition for money, I hope you prepared.
-If you seek steady profits with no risk, get a job.
-The market has an insatiable appetite for hope.

* Being a Consistently Profitable Trader is a measurement of the Mental Skills you have developed.

* Don't waste time learning the "tricks" of the trade. Instead, learn the trade.

Work harder on yourself than you do on your job.
-Jim Rohn

By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.
-Ben Franklin

Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach.
Tony Robbins

These are my favourite (almost)-one liners from the Market Wizards:

I think that, in the end, losing begets losing. When you start losing, it touches off negative elements in your psychology; it leads to pessimism.
-Marcus

First, I would say that risk management is the most important thing to be well understood. Undertrade, undertrade, undertrade is my second piece of advice.
-Bruce

The correct approach is to say: This structure means up, and this structure means up no more, but never that this structure means up this much and no more.
-Dennis

The elements of good trading are: (1) cutting losses, (2) cutting losses, and (3) cutting losses. If you can follow these three rules, you may have a chance.
-Ed

Although the cheetah is the fastest animal in the world and can catch any animal on the plains, it will wait until it is absolutely sure it can catch its prey. It may hide in the bush for a week, waiting for just the right moment. It will wait for a baby antelope, and not just any baby antelope, but preferably one that is also sick or lame. Only then, when there is no chance it can lose its prey, does it attack. That, to me, is the epitome of professional trading.
-Mark

I like to make money gradually at first and then play with the money I have made.
-Brian

I've got a summary PDF of the book if anyone wants it, ask for it and it's yours. (if this is wrong then let me edit this out, please?)

"History has demonstrated that the most notable winners usually encountered heartbreaking obstacles before they triumphed. They won because they refused to become discouraged by their defeats."

One of the quotes from my trading journal.

- When archers shoot for enjoyment, they have all their skill; when they shoot for a brass buckle, they get nervous; when they shoot for a prize of gold, they begin to see two targets.

To play at top of your form, you cannot be emotionally involved in the results.
