As you may know, my husband Mark Douglas is popularly recognized as one of the founders of the coaching industry for traders. Mark's first book on trading Psychology ~ The Disciplined Trader™ ~ helped pave the way for many traders to understand that to be a consistently successful trader, and develop that professional trader's mindset ~ takes more than just technical analysis and a reliable system. These concepts were expanded in his second book, Trading in the Zone™ which continued the determined trader's education to become the best trader he can be. Both of his first two books are considered industry classics and are currently used in many business school curriculum, such as Wharton.
And, one of the things that has been a constant since the mid-1980s in the collaboration between Mark and myself is our passion for providing the highest level of services to assist traders at all levels of development. This currently includes one-on-one coaching with me, as well as a number of dynamic books written by myself - and Mark; workshops, and other new, as yet unpublished products, and of course "apps" for those traders who have requested them.
Since many of you may not have heard my name over the years - you might think I am the proverbial "woman behind the man." In actuality, what you should know is that I am defined by Mark as the "woman beside the man" - as Mark and I worked on every project between us, together. That is one of the reasons why he dedicated "The Disciplined Trader™" to me. Our partnership and collaboration began in the mid-1980s, and continues to this day and forward. We grew our coaching business together; he consulted me over every paragraph he wrote for his books and workshops - and vice versa.
It is through this joint effort, this lifetime of collaboration with Mark that I am able to continue to bring you the clearest, most concise materials and coaching for you to achieve your highest trading goals.
So as our slogan states at the top of the page - "...how well do you know yourself...?" This is the focal point of my work with traders, as it was with Mark - to provide you with the most concise mindset - a mindset of a successfully consistent trader. And if you do not know yourself, do not know what you are thinking during each and every trade, then you cannot and will not be consistent - except at losing.
"A winner knows how much he still has to learn..." (Sydney J. Harris)
What does it mean to be a winner? Making a lot of money in the markets? You will have to ask yourself, do you want to be a consistent trader - or do you want to be right? Keep in mind, this is the learning curve that all traders must go through - if they choose to learn what they don't know, but think they already do know, then they will be winners. Meaning, you can be a great analyst, you can have a great platform, purchase a good system - but if you do not know what you "think" - then you will not become successful at trading.
What are some of your most pressing trading challenges today ~ or any trading day? More importantly ~ what is it you feel you have yet to accomplish with your trading?
Do you want to be more consistent?
Have you realized a steady and upward equity curve?
Can you take advantage of opportunity when you see it in the markets?
Do you wonder why you may not follow your rules all the time?
Have you developed and maintained a professional trader's mindset?
Are you still afraid of losing?
No matter what your answers to the above questions may be, one of the things to understand is that all traders go through a period of self-examination. This is just a necessary part of learning how to trade. You have to "know" what you are thinking at every given moment ~ to be able to effectively take charge and manage your trades to raise your equity curve, and keep it moving in an upward motion. You also have to understand your own unique mindset, and update that mindset as needed to one that is more productive to produce higher results.
This is where my materials and coaching come in!
What my coaching and products will help you discover is what the most successful traders have learned, implemented and know ~ that they had to acquire, and instill within their own thoughts, specific psychological trading attributes and skills unique to trading.
Attributes and skills which allow them to transcend the most common of trading errors that continue to challenge and limit the results all other traders.
This unique and specialized trading and thinking methodology, along with enhanced trading skills can be accomplished by any trader ~ by any trader willing to go the distance, "do what needs to be done" with regard to how they manage their own thoughts and actions ~ and do the mental homework necessary to instill a professional trader's mindset.
