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.

IF MUCH is given MUCH is required

Today was my worst trading day in the last two weeks, not because i loss, but because i failed to follow my very basic rules. First i was trading in the pre-market which is not in my plan and of course it was a lossing trade then i told myself that all i needed to do was get to b/e before the open so 2 more trades 2 more losers so now i down nice but no panic i got up and left the room and did not return until the open of GC. So i'm calm all i need is a signal so wait and boom it's long i'm in +26 ticks on 2 cont so i'm almost b/e 2 more trades 2 more wins CL, and TF done for the day with 751.00 usd but i still want say that this is not how i should be trading. CONSISTENCY IN DISCIPLINE is going to make me a better trader yes i made some profit my acct won today but my quest to be better well let's calln this a minor set back.

Hi, this is the third thread you've created with the same title.

You need to stop creating "New threads" and instead hit "Post Reply", which means to reply to the existing thread. Here is the link to your last thread:

I am closing this one. I will move a copy of your post into the other thread for you.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
