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.

those things will happen again and again. They will become less eventually but I honestly doubt that you won't "mess up" some days. The only thing that is crucial is that you know when enough is enough.

And as you ended the day with a good trade that seemingly fits your rules, you seem to be able to recover from mental stress. .

So don't be too harsh to yourself.

You are on track, just stay calm. You just went a bit bored crazy and rather manic in the gap time between passing the combine and waiting for the funded account to start. Sorry to say but it was obvious to watch (I know these things *very* well.)

Murphy's Law also said you would have some difficult days to kick off the new status, that's normal and you shouldn't worry, you describe real life well, just do what you do, tell it like you do and all will go as it should.

Best Wishes and Good Trading.

Cheers

You certainly have shown that you can succeed, so you probably won't be "one of them."

But if you do, well, you have shown that you can succeed, so you would just need to pick yourself up and do it again. At this point, the question of having the proven ability has been settled, so if you make some mistakes, don't worry, you can recover.

Just keep trading the way you normally do, as other people have said. You will do fine, no matter what happens in the short run.

Bob.

There is *no* rush. You will be fine.

Breathe and walk first. Then the trading and the running will come.

Honestly, the biggest difference for me has been learning how to win calmly and lose calmly in the same day. That one has been more important than all other door keys.

Yes I know. And I am overcoming my weakness over and over again. And even if it is not a full winner day, it is VERY GOOD TO KNOW I can beatmyself. I can switch side, swithc view when it is need. I can go for good profits, instead of stopped out badly like I did it first, and THIS IS something....

Oh man.... Thank you for your support it means a lot!

Santa is coming

We have a new holy grail indicator idea with @daddy. I need some more testing, than I will do the programing. Anyhow, it is not a big thing ofc. You have to guess the bias right, also you have to choose a good location also, but if you can do this, than it gives you a perfect location entry... Why am I writing this? Dunno Just letting you know guys to stay tuned. If it will work, I will do some post, right now it is really just an idea (but a good one I can tell...) As @daddy wrote it, it could also guess the future:P

Hi Mate, I followed your story and you already did an impressive result.
If I can give you an advice, don't put even more pressure than what already is on your job. Try to avoid to overthink what you do, be relaxed and I know for what I've read what means this for you, but anyway this will not be your last trading opportunity in your life both you succeed with it or not.
And don't think you have anything to prove to yourself or someone else, it will only make your trading worst.

Keep doing a good job, follow your rules but don't focus yourself too much on the single day outcome and results will come with time.
