Meditation – The Secret Weapon to Becoming a Better Trader

Do you find yourself repeating the same mistakes in trading over and over again?

Perhaps failing to pull the trigger when you have a perfect setup right in front of you?

Or find yourself afraid to take a new trade for fear of losing?

How about ‘knowing’ what to do, but being unable to do it in real time, yet you can do it perfectly on demo?

The answer to any and all of the challenges above you experience in trading comes down to two things:

1) How Your Brain is Wired
2) Your Mindset

The good thing is you can re-wire your brain for success in trading and life. And luckily you can do this in just a few weeks, for only minutes per day.

In this infographic I explain how top wall street traders meditate to improve performance, how different practices produce different results, and how you can improve your brain for trading and life in just a few weeks.

      Hello Elkin,

    Nicely put together. I’m a busy family man Chris, but I try to put in at least a half hour to an hour of working out every other day because I know the benefits of this for my physical well being. I think I can give meditation a try but I am limited to time. What is the minimum amount of time you would consider good for someone short on time?

    • Chris Capre

      Yeah when people have full time jobs and families, time is of a premium. But in some sense, nothing is more important than meditation as it will help make sure the time you do get with your family is more enjoyable, sane and clear.

      In terms of the minimum amount of time – 5-10 mins per day would be great. And if not every day, then 3-4 days per week would be great.

      Is that workable?
