Pro Trader Program – Module Descriptions

Module 2 – Part 1 – Mind Mastery Challenge
Many traders have not really explored the power and impact the subconscious mind has on the outcome of your trading. We are extremely confident this will be a very enlightening module for you and give you immediate steps on improving your performance. We are going to share the secrets to mastering your very powerful subconscious mind and how to re-program your mind for trading success. In this program we look at a detailed analysis of the human brain and how it reacts to the pressures of trading. We look at the classic signs of a trader who is struggling with the psychology of trading. We dig a little deeper and show the science behind the processes, the cause and effect on your trading. Our first video in the series looks at how to identify the signposts of our thought processes associated with the trading process – it’s all about preparing your mind for trading. We can’t wait for you to immerse yourself into module 2.
