I truly find in being profitable and being able to overcome the psychological battle one must come to your trading desk with a positive mind and knowledge. You can’t beat yourself up with a loss, its a learning experience. If you have a bad day know that tomorrow is a fresh slate and new set ups. Try to analyze and learn what went wrong. Those losses make us stronger if we use them to our advantage.
Momo Traders: Tips, Tricks, and Strategies from Ten Top Traders by Brady Dahl (2015-05-03)– This book is a contemporary book of interviews of day traders. Not big hedge funds but people like you and me that decided to trade for a living and their experiences.
Dark Pool Secrets was the book that really educated me about the dark pool prints or movement of money from the big guys. We are talk trades of milions of shares. Definitely check it out you will thank me.
This inspired me to change my career to trade a profession that can be done anywhere in the world.
This is a link to a movie which I found more inspiring than reading the book. However the book came first and is available too.
More books recommended from the interviewees in my book.
