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

Futures Edge on FIO

Which time slot for our live webinar events works best for you?

Total votes: 422
 
Wasted time this evening.

Broke with my schedule to buy Mother day card and mail a birthday card and went to a coffee shop to read an investment book. I got into a mistake of getting into a conversation with a young lady who asked "What are the reasons for being good?"

When I replied with a more spiritual answer to her question she wanted me to answer it without using any metaphysics. The conversation floated into many directions but in the end she expressed that all answers were in science - and if they weren't science just had to do more digging.

Her justification to the Halloran particle accelerator ($6.8B?) when compared to a growing Sahara desert, 90% of the fish stocks gone in the world's oceans, 200,000 people dying of starvation and starvation related diseases each 3 days, species eradication and habitat loss, burning the amazon rainforest - size of Belgium each year, 6.8 billion people on a planet that can only sustain half that and growing every day, etc. was "misallocation of resources".

Yet another praying to the god of science.
So depressing.

So now I'm wrapping up numbers I should have done long ago. It's 11:33pm local time and I need to wake up by 3:30am. I am angry at myself for the time-waste.

Good trading to everyone.

Nice job aquarian! You should change your sig and make it your own,

eg "I will strike it rich and buy a tropical island"

"The primary thing required to obtain what you want from life, is simply the will to pursue it, and the faith to believe it is possible." - Author Unknown

"The ability to maintain discipline and stick to the rules is the hallmark of the experienced successful trader" - Curtis Faith
