Publisher's Summary

Maximizing the trader's state of mind is the key to successful results.
Conflicts, contradictions, and paradoxes in thinking can spell disaster for even a highly motivated, astute and well-grounded trader. Mark Douglas, an industry consultant since 1982, sends the message that a "thinking strategy" will profoundly influence a trader's success rate. Douglas addresses five very specific issues to give traders the insight and understanding about themselves that will make them consistent winners in the market.

Trading in the Zone™ offers specific solutions to the "people factor" of commodity price movement. It uncovers the true culprit for lack of consistency when it comes to stock picking: lack of focus and self-confidence. Through simple exercises, traders will learn how to think in terms of probabilities and adopt the specific beliefs necessary to developing a winner's mindset. Along the way, they'll gain valuable insights into their own entrenched misconceptions about the market.

Backed by compelling examples, Trading in the Zone™ adds a new dimension to getting an edge on the market. Through a better understanding of themselves, as well as of Wall Street's realities, traders will come to leverage the power of their psyche for unprecedented profitability.

    "too much waffle"

    the book started quite well. However, by mid chapter 5 I was lost! too much waffle, repetition and selling opinions as facts!

    "You cannot call yourself a trader unless you have read this book"

    If you are serious about trading, this book should form the foundations to your education. Trading is not about having the right system or the right program to identify trades, trading is about controlling your mind. This book teaches you how to understand the emotional roller coaster traders experience and how to get and remain in control of your mind.

    "very repetitive, good info overall"

    I found the first 8 chapters quite annoying as the same message was being stated over and over.
    once past the initial stages, the value of the book came through.

    "Essential for success... Excellent!"

    I think I will find this book to be an invaluable resource to keep me profitable.
    Although some chapters are on general psychology and not specific to trading, this helps the overall message of understanding why you make certain decisions with your trading.
    Simply buy it as you'll save many times this investment if you implement the lessons.
