Trading in the Zone: Master the Market with Confidence, Discipline and a Winning Attitude | [Mark Douglas]

Trading in the Zone: Master the Market with Confidence, Discipline and a Winning Attitude

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.

    Story
    "A zen like approach to trading"
    What did you love best about Trading in the Zone?

    As an apprentice in trading I really enjoyed Douglas's approach to the subject and was taken by the almost spirtual undertones of what he described as the qualities a successful trader needed to attain to. In many ways these ideals could be applied to any human endeavour.

    For me personally it was the synchronicity of what he described of


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Trading in the Zone?

    Realising it wasn't about making money with some winning formula


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Living in the Now moment....see above ...read Tolle

    "Thought Provoking!"
    What made the experience of listening to Trading in the Zone the most enjoyable?

    This book is so thought provoking I'm listening to this a second time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Trading in the Zone?

    Not to over think the trade, believe in your edge and act according to your trade plan.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Very monotone, it made this book a bit dry, which is sad considering the content.


    What did you learn from Trading in the Zone that you would use in your daily life?

    The market is not competing with you, just take what it gives you.


    Any additional comments?

    Solid book, perhaps should be bought as a traditional book.

    "worst book ever"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    NONE


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I generally dont write negative comments. But I reaaaaaaally wanted to write something about this book. I literally said to myself, "I cant take this crap anymore" and stopped listening. Book is only a play of words, nothing concrete.
    Folks, do proper market analysis. That's the key, all others are craps..
