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.

    "very good concepts, but ..."

    This book has many good concepts which can be summarised into a 10-Min speech. Way too long. Too much repetition and unnecessary elaboration.

    "Repetitive!"

    Helpful overall. Yet, too repetitive. I kept thinking to myself, "Alright, I get the point".

    "Very good book."

    I liked this book and would definitely recommend it. Good info about mindset and viewing each trade as an individual and not associated with past or future trades. I would have given 5 stars, but, at some points it became very repetitive and I found my mind wandering. All in all, good read.

    "Good but slow"

    Excellent book but too long-winded and drawn out. He could have said the same thing in half the words. Too much repetition

    "Repetitive, boring and could be shortened 7/8ths."

    I'll save you a few days out of your life here and tell you that this book says there are no solid rules to the market and you need to control your emotions to trade successfully. The book then repeats this again and again over its countless, nauseatingly boring pages.
    I have no idea who pays for this man's advice but it makes me want to start my own consulting firm.
