Self-Coaching

Learn to be your own trading coach. Take notes on Post-its and attach them to your trading screen or leave them on your trading desk. Consider what messages are the most important for you at your current stage as a trader. What do you think you need to be focusing on? Here are a few practical examples: 

1. One trader might be focused on expanding his trading size without losing its efficiency. His note could say, “Focus on playing the setups as efficiently as you can. Money will follow.” 

2. Another trader may be fighting overtrading. Her note could read, “Play only your best setups. Don’t be easily distracted; it does not pay.” 

Be creative—do not be afraid of creating a true piece of art with your Post-its! Eventually, if the messages are repeated enough times in enough ways, they will become part of a trader’s self-talk and a natural part of performance.

You will follow practical steps and acquire the essential skills a successful trader must have in order to consistently win, and you'll also learn:

- how to develop a trading system
- how to utilize the best trading techniques within a trading methodology
- how to think about the psychological aspects of trading and the markets
- how vital it is to treat trading like a business

As you master this breakthrough program, you'll build yourself a distinctive trading signature.

"It took me five years to become a profitable trader and almost another five years to become extremely consistent. If I had come across the right trading material and concepts earlier, I’m sure the learning curve would have been far shorter. This practical book will give you the materials and concepts I wish I’d had early in my career." - Henrique M. Simões
