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.

So happy for you, I also see you much more relaxed in what you are doing, you take the good and the bad at the same way and this itself shows how you grew up! Great job today, your trade was less easy to take then you described

Your landscape and view a bit better than mine. Also you are pushing it more. During summertime I tend to run 7-8km as well. But I have been realized, I was getting tired for the afternoon session. From weightloss point of view it was a huge. In 3 month I have been lost 15 kg, but from trading perspective it was not profitable. So I am concentrating for a good run, try to do it every day, before trading - if I am not running at least go for a good walk Consistency here and in trading is the same thing for me.
But I am super-jealous for the landscape

No time for trade today

Sorry guys. No time for trade today. Did not even meditate. We have workers at home, they are changing our windows, to do not get freezed out during winter time.

Missed a nice entry, missed my 25 tick profit, so got out. Market is smelly for me for a drop, dont want to overpush it... Sorry to dont see a nice clean disciplined trade. This is what it is...

I believe the greatness is trading comes with time, but thank you.
About books: I do not have good answer for this. In the begining I was trying to believe it is good to read books, but for me did not played out well. We are all different, and based on this everyone has to find his own best thing to do. What I love about books to read is the ideas, and not the solution. I am giving you an example:
Reading Van Tharp till he is giving you an idea about the R, and other thing is good. I am not using them as it described in the book, but I do aware of that, what is it used for, so I tailored the information to my use. But, reading for 300 hundred pages about this concept is get me tired.
Otherwise, reading market wizards Jack D. Schwager is a great pleasure for me, even if he is not giving any solution, but highlighting a lots of interesting view and thinking around the market. So for me is reading books is to get experience from others, and not solutions.

This is the main reason, I am trying to not read trading related books, or listen podcast, I am trying to read, and listen other stuffs, ideas, stories to keep my brain thinking and processing information, and not to get solutions from others.
