Publisher's Summary

Every trader is an entrepreneur. And just as a new business must capitalize upon the strengths of its founders, a career in the markets crucially hinges upon the assets - personal and monetary - of the trader. As an active trader and a coach of traders in hedge funds, proprietary trading groups, and investment bank settings, author Brett Steenbarger has helped others see the personal assets they have possessed all along: those that can pay a lifetime of dividends.

In The Daily Trading Coach, Steenbarger provides the tools to help you prioritize both your trading goals and your life - and become your own trading psychologist.

There are 101 lessons in The Daily Trading Coach, each averaging several minutes in length. Each lesson follows the same general format: identifying an everyday challenge that traders face, an approach to meeting that challenge, and a specific suggestion for implementing that approach. The lessons cover a range of topics relevant to trading psychology and trading performance, including detailed instruction for utilizing psychodynamic, cognitive, and behavioral brief therapy methods to change problematic behavior patterns and instill new, positive ones. In addition, the book includes insightful self-coaching perspectives from 18 successful trading professionals who share their work online.

While the aim of the book is to help you become your own trading coach, its broader purpose is to help you coach yourself through life. The challenges and uncertainties you face in trading - the pursuit of rewards in the face of risks - are just as present in careers and relationships as in markets. The Daily Trading Coach provides a road map, and a practical set of insights and tools, for discovering and implementing the best within you.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Great for all experience traders

Fantastic book in helping become your best trader.

However, waaay to much info/thoughts packed into each chapter. No one could possibly keep up to it all regularly. I tried taking notes each chapter but found myself with simply too many things to try and keep track of. Instead just took the major points/things to do fitting for my personal trading areas.

Great book and tips

Would you consider the audio edition of The Daily Trading Coach: 101 Lessons for Becoming Your Own Trading Psychologist to be better than the print version?

This book is perfect to be placed in audiobook format because there are no real charts, tables, or figures to look at it. I personally hate reading and only do so when necessary. I'm thankful I found this book here. I found it via Investimonials - they provided great reviews of this book if you would like further information/reviews...and I guess there are the numerous www.amazon.com reviews...

What did you like best about this story?

It helped me a lot to assess my psychological trading mistakes. I think every trader should at least skim over this book. They will find a mistake they are committing. I've learned a lot about myself while reading this book like my fear or rejection or making mistakes - this makes me stay in positions longer than I should. There are a lot of great trading tips.

Which scene was your favorite?

Definitely does not apply to a trading book...

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

...It's a trading book...

Excellent Audible/Book!

I actually bought this book solely to improve my trading. I've been trading for around three years and felt that I needed to work on things like emotional control and other psychological components of the trade process.

Although I have used it extensively for trading, I have also found the material useful for improving other aspects of my life that are unrelated to trading.

I prefer the actual print book, which I also have, because it's easier to study the material thoroughly and go back over certain sections when I need to. Still, whether it's the audible version, or the or the print or e-book format, you can't go wrong with The Daily Trading Coach. Of all the similar books on trading, this is one is the absolute best I have found.

very helpful

the book delt with many areas that I haven't even thought about as a new trader! I'm glad I was able to open my mind to a whole new area of trading that I need to work on!

Great book for every level of trader!

A book you should listen to at least a few times a year to keep you on the right track.

One of the Best

Would you listen to The Daily Trading Coach: 101 Lessons for Becoming Your Own Trading Psychologist again? Why?

This book is full of psychological tips and tricks that are very helpful for high frequency traders.

Ok, but wouldn't buy again.

This book just covers your own personal psychology, nothing else about trading. I didn't learn anything new here, and would not buy if I could do it again.

However, if you are completely new to trading, then this is a solid pickup.

Hard to listen twice

The book has more tips than necessary, youll have to go through a lot of fluff to pick out the few gems worth implementing. The narrarator was also not my favorite and mostly ruined the audio book for me. Better to get a hard copy and take notes on the parts of the book most relevant to you.
