Publisher's Summary

Become a savvy trader with a 'mindful' edge....

TraderMind is an essential resource for understanding and applying mindfulness-based approaches that help to enhance an individual trader's overall performance.

Based upon extensive research and practical application in the real world of the trading floor, TraderMind includes methods, tactics and techniques to build and enhance awareness and insight, which help manage thoughts and emotions and maximize trading performance.

The author demonstrates how to overcome habitual or impulsive trading behaviours, manage energy levels, become more attuned to and responsive to the market, become more situationally aware and build patterns of effective trading behaviour. By developing these skills and good behaviours, traders can overcome inherent biases and ultimately improve their trading decisions.

The techniques outlined in TraderMind can be utilized as core competencies of trading psychology or can be used to complement other behavioural methods and strategies. The TraderMind tool set does not replace the need for basic trading skills, knowledge, strategy, or key performance enablers such as preparation and performance analysis.

Rather, TraderMind is designed to act as a facilitator or multiplier to enhance trader decision making and improve overall performance.

difficult to keep focus. ironically

one of the chapters in the book teaches how to keep attention, ironic considering I had so much difficulty listening to the narrator. I don't know if it was due to poorly written text or the performance of Carter? I feel the content is important and I got a lot from it after listening a second time, perhaps this book is better suited to paper form?

Standard Applications of Mindfulness

It is quite trendy to apply the concepts of mindfulness to any human endeavor and then write a book about it. Unfortunately, this book fails to add anything meaningful to either trading or mindfulness.

A lot of rambling for simple concepts

Very very repetitive book.
crux is just that well known mindful exercises - breathing yoga can be very beneficial for trading.

Good insights into trading psychology.

I enjoyed this one. It's a perceptive and applicable study of the stresses of trading with practical approaches to responding in a way that is good for your bottom line, and beneficial for your mental health. It's based heavily around meditative and mindfulness techniques, which won't suit everyone, but which I have found to have some value.

It's the kind of book that will benefit from re-reading during times of difficulty.

Narrator was good too.
