Enhancing Trader Performance: Proven Strategies from the Cutting Edge of Trading Psychology by Brett Steenbarger is an enlightening book. I consider it the best book on trading psychology to date. The reason is because it dispels so many trading myths and replaces them with trading concepts and strategies you can sink your teeth into. I talk about some of the book’s concepts in my post “Why Do Traders Lose?”
The trading platitude that traders need to suppress all emotion during and around their trading is skillfully demolished in the subchapter “A Tale of Two Traders.” From adroitly explaining how trading is a performance discipline to knowledgeably discussing how traders can find their own performance niche, Dr. Steenbargers’s writing compels your attention with its surprising and satisfying twists and turns.
Enhancing Trader Performance: Proven Strategies from the Cutting Edge of Trading Psychology is a gem. Buy it. Read it. Reread it.
