From the Inside Flap
Even the most astute, highly motivated, well-grounded traders can be crippled by counter-productive thinking that leads to poor decisions and trading errors. They suffer from an inability to stay objectively focused or lack the necessary confidence to execute their trades properly. Or they let mental contradictions and misconceptions about trading or the nature of the market rule their trades.In this book the reader will learn that maximizing the trader’s state of mind is the key to successful results. Douglas teaches traders to think in terms of probabilities and to adopt the core beliefs necessary to assuming the “winner’s mindset.” Traders in the “zone” don’t need to know ~ and don’t care ~ what the market is going to do next. They know what they are going to do next. And that makes all the difference.
