To Master the Market, Master Your Trading Psychology

I have been actively involved in the equity and futures markets since 1996 as a trader, trading coach, financial newsletter editor and pundit. You might have read articles I’ve written for Forbes, SmartMoney and SFO Magazine, or perhaps you saw me on CNBC.

I hold a Ph.D. in clinical psychology, so I am aware that academic studies show that most traders lose money, even in a roaring bull market.

I work with all levels of traders, from beginners to top hedge fund traders, my Trading Coaching Program is customized just for you. Together, we will analyze your entire trading situation (emotional, mental and tactical) and formulate an individualized program that will take you to the next level in just six weeks.
