The excitement, anticipation, and adrenaline rush of online trading and investing, along with the hard-won money traders risk with every keystroke, make it a minefield of explosive thoughts and emotions. As a trader, your ability to recognize and manage these thoughts and emotions is the pivotal difference between success and failure.

Have you invested hundreds of dollars on the latest trading software and spent thousands of hours studying trading techniques and strategies, yet neglected the most basic and important trader's tool, your mind? Let The Disciplined Online Investor show you how to apply today's most relevant psychological principles to the take-no-prisoners battlefield of online trading and gain a versatile and effective edge, one that can be adapted to you and your personal trading style.
As we enter the twenty-first century, easy access to once-proprietary trading tools and technical strategies has created a virtual trading revolution. Markets regularly skyrocket, and then plummet, with seemingly little rhyme or reason. Yet in all the media hype and analysis of these phenomena, one essential trader's tool remains unchanged, and virtually ignored.
That tool is the trader's-mind, and more than rolling Level II screens, difficult-to-decipher fundamentals, and confusing technical strategies, it is the trader's-mind that moves markets. The Disciplined Online Investor is the first book to introduce and explain vital psychological concepts as they relate specifically to the fast-moving, high-risk, high-return arena of electronic trading.
The result is a powerful, innovative, and eminently useful guide to understanding the psychological forces that shape markets, equally intended for the active trader in the trenches and the serious long-term investor. Experienced clinical psychologist, and active and successful trader, Dr. Steven Hendlin provides insights and answers into the mental and emotional aspects of online trading as he divulges:Psychological tools to balance and neutralize fear and greed Strategies for recognizing dangerous perfectionistic thinking,and transforming it into more attainable trading excellence Effective techniques to employ both active and passive forms of self-control Methods to monitor moment-to-moment awareness and to keep fantasies and negative self-talk from interfering with trading When to trade, when to hold back, and how to know the difference
More than just a simple listing of techniques and strategies, The Disciplined Online Investor is a handy reference and essential resource on the psychology and discipline of online investing. Through exercises, examples, case histories, and personal self-disclosure, Dr. Hendlin helps investors become more present-centered, expanding their self-awareness and ability to react quickly to capitalize on changing market conditions. Conversational and free of jargon, this book will change the way you perceive the trading arena, and your place in that arena, and make you a more perceptive, confident, prepared online investor.
