Trading Risk Profile

“The market’s behavior will seem mysterious because your own behavior is mysterious.”
Mark Douglas, The Disciplined Trader

COMPARE YOUR MINDSET TO SUCCESSFUL TRADERS

As a trading coach for more than a decade, I’ve noticed that trading attracts individuals with different natural trading abilities.

Some people are natural-born traders. These Market Wizards (4% of traders) are naturally fearless, competitive and report little emotion in trading. One hedge fund I consulted  with recruits Ivy League athletes to fill positions at their trading desks, since these folks are smart, competitive and resilient.

The rest of us have to work diligently in order to train ourselves to perform well under pressure.

Trading Risk Profile - Trader's Performance Bell Curve

 

BREAKEVEN Traders (32% of active traders) tend to be risk averse individuals who have either not yet fully defined their trading system or may have been emotionally wounded by losses.

HIGH RISK Traders (64% of active traders) are creative, intuitive, emotional, experiential and adventurous. They immerse themselves into trading, but tend to get too involved in the drama of the market.

In order to become consistently profitable, High Risk Traders may need assistance in developing a system that they are willing to follow and help developing the discipline to follow it.

Coaching Testimonials

"When I met Kenneth Reid I was at the end of my rope. It turns out, signing up for his 6-week program was the best thing I’ve ever done. I learned more with Ken in the first 3 days than I had in years of trading. Part of the reason is that he doesn’t just teach “how to trade,” he teaches you how to be a trader.

This is the most in-depth and highly personalized training I’ve ever experienced. I’ve learned how enter trades with minimal risk and maximum reward. My first day trading I had a 10 1/2 point trade on the ES. I had never done that before. He has shown me how to keep my losses very small and put myself in a position to make consistent profits..."
