‘What percentage of trading performance do you think is psychological?’

‘How much time do you spend working on developing your trading psychology?’

It is interesting that so many traders attribute a relative, to very large proportion of trading performance to psychology, often in the 50-90% range, and yet so many spend so little time actively working on developing it.

Good trading skills, knowledge and strategy are foundational to trading success, but they alone are not enough to maximise your market returns.

There is a difference between knowing what to do, and actually doing what you know, consistently, in the heat of the markets.

Ask yourself whether any of these scenarios are familiar to you.

"I exit winning trades too early"
"I fail to accept and cut my losses"
"I hesitate to pull the trigger on my setups"
"I can't help but overtrade"
"I trade too big (or too small)"
"I suffer from a fear of missing out (FOMO)"
"I struggle to cope with a run of losses"
"I get overconfident after a run of winners"

What are these behaviours costing you?

The good news is that in the same way that trading skills, knowledge and strategy can be taught, learnt and developed, so can trading psychology.

The best traders think, and behave differently to the rest.

Over the last 17 years I have helped some of the world’s top trading talent to develop their mindset, train specific mental skills and build effective high performance behaviours, that enable them to make good trading decisions, to navigate the highs and lows of trading the market, and to maximise their market returns.

Trade At Your Best has been developed so that I can help you too.

"This course has transformed my trading in many aspects beyond my p & l. It has significantly improved my trading edge. More critically, it has helped me build the resilience to take losses early and has enabled me to focus on the next opportunity promptly. I cannot thank Steve enough for the hard work he has put into this course which I know will pay dividends for years to come."

"Steve is an experienced psychology coach and the training is put together well to break down each of the components involved in a traders psychology thought process. When you learn to breakdown this down it’s helps you identify and improve in small areas you couldn’t do before, as it was thought and seen as a whole concept. Now that whole psychology concept can be broken into different parts."
