Three Traits all Successful Traders Have

There are three traits that all successful traders will have. Those traits are, discipline,patience and consistency. These are what the team at Gorilla Futures like to call the three pillars of trading, if traders are only able to harness one or two of these traits there trading temple will topple over leading to destruction.

The Pillars of Trading

As many of our members are aware of we like to start out with building a strong foundation for our future trading endeavors to stand on. Working on the three pillars is no different, traders must first grasp what they are and why they are so important.


Trading is unlike any other business venture out there, traders must be able to stay disciplined and follow there system and rules if they hope to become a successful trader. Discipline is not taking FOMO trades or taking trades that only half way fit your plan. With trading you are either all in and disciplined 100% of the time or not at all.

If you are lacking the ability to be disciplined throughout the trading session then take a day or two off to realign yourself with the three pillars of trading. No trader will be able to 100% all the time but good traders and able to know when to trade and when not to trade.
