Webinar: Creating the Ideal Trading State

In the final part of the 3 part webinar series for Disnat Direct and clients, I discuss the importance of not just trade management but self-management. Summary: Anyone who has been trading for any length of time quickly realizes how important the mental game is to trading. After all, trading is largely a game of decision making and as human beings, there is a host of cognitive biases and mental leaks (fears, limiting beliefs, etc.) that can bleed into one’s trading. Many traders mistakenly believe that consistent trading success is simply a function of having a battle-tested trading system that […]

I was recently coaching a trader who had been trading for several years and had found some success with trading however his results had rather been inconsistent.

At the end of the day he was at his wits end and felt as though his progress as a trader had stalled out.   […]

Unfortunately in trading this emphasis on “just doing” rarely works. Don’t get me wrong there is a place for determination and effort however often times in our rush for results we skip the lessons and try to go straight for the outcomes. So what’s wrong with […]
