"The Daily Trading Coach" by Brett Steenbarger and reviewed by Richard Friesen

I am giving this book to all of my clients

“The Daily Trading Coach” by Brett N. Steenbarger is the best step-by-step guide for traders who want to make steady improvements to their trading game I have read.

The Daily Trading Coach: 101 Lessons for Becoming Your Own Trading Psychologist (Wiley Trading)

I do have one complaint about the book however. Normally, when I read such a book I will mark everything I read th
at is of value with notes in the margin and then bookmark them with a sticky note. Then, after I finish the book, I will do a quick review of the parts that are relevant to me and create a “to do” list for action items.

This book has over 150 sticky notes and almost every page has a handwritten note in the margins that stimulated or confirmed my thinking. There is so much of value here that I will have to re-read almost the entire book to review the valuable lessons! Because this book is so practical, I am afraid I can’t summarize it and do it justice.

Seriously, Dr. Steenbarger covers every aspect of the transformational process that traders will need to deal with. Reading the book is like walking on a field of diamonds and hearing them crunch under your boots. The issues that my clients are working on are all addressed clearly along with suggested solutions.

Our mutual experience in trading and trading trainers has forged a common psychological foundation that my clients will recognize as they read this book. My process of building new satisfying behaviors (I call Mind Muscles™) sync right up with his self-coaching guide.

If you are a trader who wants to become more consistently profitable by improving your own mental abilities with self-coaching, there is no better resource. If you want to accelerate your process with professional coaching, I will send you a copy of this book for free.
