From the Inside Flap:

The daily grind of the trader is always full of excitement, energy,adventure—and stress. While many live for the thrill of thetrade, most also feel the emotional, psychological, and physicalimpact of the constant changes; riding the roller coaster of thefinancial markets for eight hours a day, five days a week,forty-eight weeks out of the year.

But while some traders just seem naturally better equipped todeal with the emotional turmoil of trading, others seem to "fallapart" under much less dire circumstances. While eliminating stressis not realistic—or an entirely desiredapproach—reducing stress is. And traders can best cope withstress, says Ari Kiev, by being proactive and taking steps toreduce it. With this book, Kiev shows you how to dothis—beginning with developing an appropriate understandingof stress and how it physically affects us, and leading all the wayto specific exercises that can help traders manage their dailystress.

The author, a psychiatrist who specializes in stress managementand performance enhancement, has worked extensively with tradersover many years. In Mastering Trading Stress, he draws on his vastexperience to offer examples, transcripts of conversations, andpersonality profiles of real-life traders that illustrate howstress robs them of their ability to perform at their best. Hepoints out that the stressors for all of these traders weredifferent and, accordingly, asserts that aspiring traders need toidentify their own particular stress points and learn to deal withthem in order to succeed.?Kiev describes a variety of practicaltechniques that can be used to handle destructive emotions andout-of-control feelings, including his "Most Basic" stress busters,and tells what to do if a breakdown does occur.

There is no way to take the stress out of trading. But stressdoes not have to make you emotionally, mentally, or physically ill,and it does not have to hinder your trading game. With this book asyour guide, you can learn to reduce stress, cope with the stressesthat are inevitable, and even use stress to your own benefit.
