Just about every professional trader that we have had on the TradingPub over the past two months has stressed the importance of discipline and the mental aspect of trading in the markets.  I can personally testify to the struggles of the mental side of trading as I took a large loss in the past week on a short option position in the Swiss Franc when Switzerland announced the news about selling Unlimited amounts of swiss currency and it dropped about 10%... never good to be trading against a central bank who is throwing unlimited resources against your position (new trading rule of mine)... now back to today's session!

Bennett McDowell of TradersCoach.com was kind enough to stop by and share some tips on mental side of trading and working to control the two aspects that shape much of our trading decision making which is fear and greed.   Other topics discussed include how our senses affect reality and learning to step outside the "matrix" of fear and greed in order to make them work for you and much much more.  Thanks again to Ben for stopping by the TradingPub to share his time and knowledge with our patrons!  Click the link below to view the recording (it will be available for 48 hours and then move into the Premium Pub section.
