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

Written is varied ways:

A rising tide raises all boats.
A rising tide raises all ships.
A rising tide lifts all boats.

A rising tide lifts all ships.

I just said one of these to my friend over the phone actually. The concept
is that, if the stock market goes up, most stocks go up as well, regardless
if any individual stock has a real reason to go up. (This is how I always
interpreted the saying anyway.)

====================================================

A number of sayings here at the link below.

Market Wizards
Interviews with Top Traders
Jack D. Schwager
Study Notes by Zhipeng Yan

I'll post some right now. I think anything that is more than a single sentence
would not be considered a 'one-liner'. But maybe something has some
use to someone, which also has value in its own way.

(Rules and sayings below are from different traders. Maybe even the best
ones below are not one-liners, in the sense that they aren't cliche.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

11. Gut feel is very important. Being a successful trader also takes courage; the
courage to try, the courage to fail, the courage to succeed, and the courage to keep
on going when the going gets tough.

12. If trading is your life, it is a tortuous kind of excitement. But if you are keeping
your life in balance, then it is fun. All the successful traders have a balanced life;
they have fun outside of trading.



The first rule of trading is that donít get caught in a situation in which you can
lose a great deal of money for reasons you donít understand.

Place your stops at a point that, if
reached, will reasonably indicate that the trade is wrong, not at a point determined
primarily by the maximum dollar amount you are will to lose per contract.

A common mistake is to
think of the market as a personal nemesis. The market, of course, is totally
impersonal; it doesnít care whether you make money or not.


I have always tried to
keep the concept of patience in mind by waiting for the right trade, just like you
wait for the percentage hand in poker.

One of the most suicidal things you can do in trading is to keep adding to a losing
position.


Donít trade until an opportunity presents itself.

When you start being
afraid to lose, you are finished.

Markets are fundamentally volatile. No way around it. Your problem is not in the math.
There is no math to get you out of having to experience uncertainty.


A trader at one with his feelings feels nothing between himself and executing his method.

adjusting to market conditions

Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way round or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend.Ē ~ Bruce Lee

one-liners

People, who make a living looking into crystal balls, are destined to eat a lot of broken glass.

I read this in some trading book and I try to remenber it.

Some quotes are long, but might fit on futures.io (formerly BMT) if shortened.
=================================================================

Every winner needs to master three essential components of trading; a sound individual psychology, a logical trading system and good money management. These essentials are like three legs of a stool - remove one and the stool will fall, together with the person who sits on it. - ALEXANDER ELDER

Markets offer unlimited opportunities for self-sabotage, as well as for self-fulfillment. - ALEXANDER ELDER

Most aspiring traders underestimate the time, work, and money required to become successful. - MARK D COOK


For a trader, rationalization is a guaranteed road to ultimate failure. - VICTOR SPERANDEO

To succeed as a trader, it is absolutely necessary to have an edge. You canít win without an edge, even with the worldís greatest discipline and money management skills. If you donít have an edge, all that money management and discipline will do for you is to guarantee that you will gradually bleed to death. Incidentally, if you donít know what your edge is, you donít have one. - JACK SCHWAGER



People underestimate the time it takes to succeed as a trader. Some people come here and think they can sit with me for a week and become great traders. How many people when they went to college wouldíve thought to walk up to the professor and say, ď I know the course is for a semester, but I think a week should be enough for me to get it.Ē Gaining proficiency is the same in trading as in any other profession - it requires experience, and experience takes time. - MARK D COOK
