Risk Disclosure

Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

Hypothetical Performance Disclosure: Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. no representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. for example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.

Why choose TradersMentality.com?

The primary reason I started this website is to provide high value information at a low cost. And to give those who are serious about trading an actual chance to make it in the markets, without ignoring a key variable; your self. 


This website describes the trading system and market guidelines I use in the market every day as a Price Action Trader.  The Trading Psychology section details how I view markets internally and how I interact and engage with them on a psychological level.  It describes how I "Trade in the Zone."  The Investing Guide explains my process on entering and managing long term investments in stocks, ETF's, and various other markets.



  • To give back to the trading community by providing low cost, high value information to help others succeed in the market.

  • To empower anyone who wants to learn to trade or invest by providing a simplified approach to help navigate stock markets, through all market cycles.

  • To provide a clear, detailed analysis to help you make better actions in the marketplace.

  • Whether you are a beginner or experienced trader, we provide insights and skills you need to perform consistently in the markets.


Why I created Traders Mentality:

  • Our competition charges absurd prices for worthless information which only leads new traders down the rabbit hole.

  • To provide new market entrants with what is needed; not to exploit them through sales gimmicks and empty promises.

What makes us different?

  • If money was our goal at Traders Mentality, the price would be 10X what it is.  (Like the competition. And yes the information within is worth it!)  The market is my employer; not this website.

  • We make no claims to make you a rich.  That is up to you.  But we do provide the tools necessary to better your life both in and out of the market.

Josh Ridenour

My name is Josh Ridenour, I am a full time Price Action Trader and Entrepreneur.  I have been trading my own money for over 5 years.  I also have a Bachelors degree in Business Management.  I actively day trade futures, and also hold longer term positions in various other markets.  I enjoy sharing my thoughts, experiences, and analysis to help others make better informed actions in the market.

Prior to trading I worked in the world of Corporate America as a Manager.  After a few years I was burned out and realized it was not what I wanted to do with my life.  Just out of high school I was interested in markets and knew I wanted to invest in stocks one day.  I quickly forgot about this while going through college, but when I graduated I was re-introduced to markets.  From there my trading journey began.  As I worked full time I traded when I could.  About a year later I quit my full time job to focus solely on trading.  

Today I day trade futures markets on 10 minute charts.  I only trade on trend days which occur a handful of times a month. This allows me a lot of free time outside of the market to conduct and manage other businesses.  The rest of my time I enjoy spending with my family, just being, and living life.
