The Trading Edge


Have you run through several accounts and kept making the same mistakes?

Have you jumped from trading educator to trading educator trying to find something that works?

Do you really want to get an edge in your trading?

The Reality is that most people who attempt to learn to trade do poorly at it. 

Financial trading is a sophisticated skill comprising a number of component skills that need to be mastered to develop consistent results. These component skills can be divided into two categories, the technical skills and the psychological skills. 

Broadly, technical skills can be sequenced as research (for set-ups that fit the trading rules of the traders model), execution (clean entries and exits), and trade management.

Get Ahead of the Game

Psychological skills involve awareness of one’s own patterns and emotional responses. Interestingly, traders often come to recognize how important the psychology of trading is only after trading for a couple of years.

Good technical analysis skills without a sound understanding of Trading Psychology mean you will become very sophisticated at getting very stressed and very anxious. 

One skill is useless without the other. 

Successful traders focus on both skills, have training in both and work on both at the same time. 

In this course Chris Collingwood and Michael Brook will be focusing on the key principles of trading psychology.  At the end of the program participants will have an awareness of the influence of their emotional responses during trading, and some simple tools for tracking and developing choices about their emotional responses.  They will also gain an understanding of the process of developing high-performance or ‘flow’ states that are a feature of the psychology of expert traders.
