12/31/07 - Happy New Year! In coming weeks, I'll be reorganizing this site and its content. Meanwhile, market updates will be available on the TraderFeed blog.
Trading the financial markets is among the most challenging of human endeavors. At its best, trading is a celebration of the human mind's capacity to master complexity. Rarely does any single activity so reward individual initiative and the exercise of the reasoning mind. And yet, financial rewards are only part of the allure of trading. In mastering the markets, we are called upon to exercise extraordinary self-mastery. Like any noble undertaking, such as art, science, or athletics, trading is a means of self-development, fostering the ability to act intentionally, in the service of one's training and ideals.
This website is designed as a resource for those who choose the path of self-development through trading. Here you will find tools for the trader and the trading, from articles on market psychology to hands-on trading techniques documented in the Trading Psychology Weblog. If you are a short-term trader of the stock index markets, I believe you'll find unique perspectives here, free of hype and commercial solicitation. Thanks for visiting, and may you profit in all your life's undertakings!
