Coaching Programs

Thank you for your interest in my Coaching programs, but before you read any further I’d like to point out that you might not need individual coaching.

It depends on your goals and how fast you want to reach them.

I play tennis (USTA). There are two types of players: recreational and competitive. Recreational players improvise everything: their strokes and their tactics. They improve for a while and then plateau. Permanently.

Competitive players take private lessons with coaches. I take lessons with Arthur Ashe’s former doubles partner who happens to be the Pro at my club. I’ve got the information I need to reach my full potential.

Of course, there are a few gifted players who are “naturals.” In trading I call them the 4%. They don’t need much coaching at all. However, most traders are men and men over-estimate our abilities, under-estimate risk and rarely ask for directions when lost. Am I right? 

So below I’ve laid out a simple road map. If you can apply it in your own trading, your psychological issues will largely disappear. If you can’t follow the guidelines, then contact me for a free consultation. 

According to Mark Douglas, to trade successfully you need two things:

the ability to trade without fear… and a method to take advantage of that ability,
which he calls “an edge.”

I’ll break it down into 6 Steps:

1. Accumulate some risk capital. (Money you can afford to lose). 

2. Pick one market (but not Commodities, not Forex , not Options, not CFDs, not Nadex and not Crypto.)

3. Create one reliable trend-following long setup and a variation of that setup for short selling. Use 3 or 4 technical elements, not more. Buy low… sell high. Do not trade counter-trend.  

4. While you are learning, stop trying to make money. Focus on Process not Outcome. 

 5. Trade your setups. 2-3 hours a day max. 1-3 trades per day. Trade small size and manage your trades to target a high win rate until you have it all locked in.

6. Only then should you shift your focus to account growth.

That’s the Formula buckaroo. 

It’s simple… but not easy because most traders have it backwards. They start out focusing on account growth. They never master a simple edge and they trade the wrong markets. Consequently, they trade in FOMO and trade-not-to-lose. That state of mind guarantees more losses so they stay stuck in what I call “the tangled web.” It’s the “Hotel California” for traders. 

 

FUND MANAGER JEFFREY M.’S STORY

Jeffrey M., a former VP at a leading Wall Street firm, has been a licensed financial advisor since 1988 and managed tens of millions of dollars for individuals and corporations.

After he began trading the E-Mini futures, he realized something…

“I knew it wasn’t the system, it was me because I was still making mistakes based upon my mental frame of mind and I couldn’t seem to get out of my own way. So I paid for coaching with Dr Reid. Let me say this: Dr. Reid’s work is the difference between me going through the motions and making money.

Under his direction I have been able to be more consistent and less emotional in my trading. I recommend his work without hesitation or reservation. He is without doubt one of the most impactful people I have ever met.”

I offer four options for one-on-one coaching:

A 90 Minute Tune-up, a 2-Week Jump Start Program, a 4-Week Trader Coaching Intensive and a 10-Week Trader Mastery Intensive. Find the right one for you or call for a consultation

2-Week JUMP START Program

This program is designed for experienced traders who are ready for a professional-grade tune-up around a single issue. You may be in a slump, a draw down phase, or you’ve somehow “lost your mojo.”

We will identify the source of the problem and work together to change the ‘bad’ habits and/or beliefs that degrade your performance. You have personal access for 2 weeks via phone and Skype. Daily access to a coach who actually trades is the fastest and most efficient way to cut through the confusion and make real progress.

This is not a canned program; we will do whatever is necessary and appropriate to get you back on track as quickly as possible.

4-Week Trader Coaching Intensive

This program starts with a phone interview in which I learn more about your situation and you can interview me.  The program is entirely customized to meet your specific, personal needs.

If we agree to proceed, then we will make a detailed assessment of your trading strengths and weaknesses, which can be done with a few questionnaires. We will then have an initial phone/Skype session where we work out a coaching plan together. The coaching plan will generally address one or more of these common trader issues:

  • Technical tactics and strategies
  • Your trader personality
  • Your risk profile
  • Limiting attitudes, habits and/or beliefs
  • Increasing emotional stability
  • Upgrading mental focus and discipline
  • Clarifying your trading plan
  • Understanding tricks & traps

We then work together on improving one issue at a time. Everything we do is customized, just for you.

This coaching program is designed to take you to a professional level. It gives you unlimited access to me for 10 weeks. As with the 4-week program, the work we do is entirely customized to meet your specific, personal needs. It starts with the same phone interview where I learn more about your situation and you can interview me.

If we agree to proceed, then together we will make a detailed assessment of your trading strengths and weaknesses along with your goals. We will then have an initial phone/Skype session where we work out a coaching plan together. The coaching plan will generally address one or more of the trader issues listed above.
