From the Inside Flap:

Traders, just like athletes, constantly deal with unrelenting pressure, performance slumps, confidence issues, and changing motivational factors. This is why the psychology of elite athletes has translated so effectively to that of the online trader.

In The Trading Athlete, sport psychologist Shane Murphy and trading coach/former Division I athlete Doug Hirschhorn take the strategies of sport psychology and apply them to the arena of online trading. This one-of-a-kind play book will give you the confidence and discipline needed to build a profitable, long-term career as a "Trading Athlete."

Apply the mental strategies of elite athletes to your online trading game plan by writing a mission statement, setting effective goals, and maintaining confidence through body language. As you continue to trade and obstacles arise, this book provides the tools necessary to overcome the bad days, weeks, and even months that come with the territory. "Trading Athlete" strategies for difficult times include:

  • Maintain a Positive Trading Attitude (PTA)
  • Use "self-talk" to get back on track
  • Avoid a "trade for revenge" strategy

Peppered with consulting stories of online traders and sport psychology strategies that work, this book will teach you how to deal with pressure, reduce stress, and stay focused as you engage in the "game" of online trading. Bounce back mentally from losses as John McEnroe did after Bjorn Bjorg defeated him in the 1980 finals of Wimbledon. McEnroe faced his failures, overcame them, and beat Bjorg in the finals of Wimbledon the very next year. Carry the expectations of a nation (or a company/family in a trader’s case) as Olympic sprinter Cathy Freeman did in 2000 by "tuning in" and staying focused on the task at hand. You don’t have to play sports to understand the principles behind this unique trading guide. All you need is the desire to put yourself in the best possible position to win.
