Maximize individual & organization’s potentials
“If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.”
Marcus Aurelius, Roman Emperor & Stoic Philosopher
Experienced traders and investors know that trading is 90% psychological. Perhaps another way to think of this is that our experience of an event is about 10% what actually happens and 90% our reaction to it. How we perceive, interpret, and respond to an event, e.g., a trading event, greatly depends on how we understand and relate to our internal state. Our internal state includes our thoughts, emotions, and physiological sensations such as bodily tension and elevated blood pressure when trading the market.
Most of us ignore the 90% until it becomes problematic, and we try to suppress or control our internal state. Does that work? The answer is no because we cannot really control our internal state. Paradoxically, controlling and suppressing our thoughts and emotions makes these unwanted thoughts and feelings more prominent. Check your own experience and see if you have been successful in suppressing or controlling your thoughts and emotions.
Modern psychology understands this phenomenon and has developed new approaches to help traders and investors better manage their internal state. Instead suppressing or controlling, we need to develop and build specific, trading-relevant mental skills and hone them so they can be applied effectively real-time.
Dr. Gary’s training programs on psychology combine the state of science from sport & human performance psychology, cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, and general and clinical psychologies to help trading and investing professionals understand the mental side of trading, and to develop the mental skills needed for the unique emotional and mental challenges in trading.
What we teach in our training programs on psychology:
Educate professional & individual traders to understand what held them back & what caused them to struggle, what can be done, so as to achieve their goals in work & life
To avoid thinking errors that trap us in trading & investment
So you can stick to your plan and make sound trading decisions
Improve performance, relationship, health, work & life
This is the trading school I have been looking for where traders can actually learn how to trade. It’s like when you go to any other school, outside of trading, with a good teacher where you learn exactly how to do things in a clear, concise and complete manner, where you afterwards know exactly what to practice on. When you practice you know that you get better.
I have never seen Wyckoff explained in such a simple and concise manner. It was a total package: Market understanding, how to read price charts and market structure, momentum, trade setups with simple trade setup sheets. Anyone who attends your program will have the tools and knowledge to trade profitably. This is a rarity in the trading seminar industry.
Now that nearly every trader has access to the same charts, software … the real edge separating wealthy traders from failed ones is their mental approach to the markets. Trade Mindfully gives today’s trader the tools they need to reach their peak earning potential by showing them how to maximize their profits through psychology. The way a trader ‘think’ about their trading and the markets has never been more important, and Dr. Dayton provides a step-by-step method for mastering the last true ‘edge’ traders have for making money in the markets.
The bar by bar analysis practice always makes me much sharper when reading charts. What I like about the class structure is it is a system that forces me to allocate time to the practice. There are times when I don’t feel like practicing but because it is scheduled, I do it anyway. It is like a having a regular time to exercise every day. By having it scheduled, it compels me to do it even when I don’t feel like it.
