Mastering Day Trading Psychology

If you’re looking for a trading coach it’s probably because you’ve realized that trading is harder than it first appears.

There are several reasons for this. First, we are hard-wired to deal with financial risk in counter-productive ways.

Second, after the honeymoon is over, traders start to fear loss; and fear causes behaviors that increase losses. Catch 22. That cycle feels like self-sabotage.

To break the cycle we need a method with an edge and the habits necessary for success. This isn’t just a theory. I’m a trader myself.

I work with traders of all levels of experience to develop and optimize both factors: your technical edge and your habits of success. Listen to some feedback from a recent client.

Hey Dr. Reid!

I want to update you. In the five weeks since our 90-minute Tune-up session, I’ve grown my account from $2k to just over $5.4k. This includes trading from a week-long trip to Greece. This is me trading at the pool in Mykonos!

Thank you for your help!!!


Method and Mindset

Mark Douglas was a friend and mentor. I consider my work an elaboration of his insights.

“If you can learn to create a state of mind that is not affected by the market’s behavior your struggle will cease to exist. When the internal struggle ends, everything becomes easy. This is when you can finally take advantage of your analytical and technical skills to realize your potential as a trader.”

Is Coaching Right for You?

Whatever your level of intelligence, education or success in life, learning to trade for a living is likely to be the most difficult challenge you have ever faced.

Your business skills will not help you because the day trading environment is completely different than the business environment. Moreover, you are likely to confront certain things about yourself that you are unprepared for.

You may be driven to master trading because it holds the secret not only to your financial future, but to your own self-mastery.

Many of my coaching clients report that as their day trading improves, the quality of their life improves along with it. If you are this type of aspiring trader, passionate about succeeding, I am confident I can coach you to achieve your goals.
