If you are a Trader or an investor, and you havent herd tradimg Dr Brett Steenbarger, I strongly recommend you read this book earlier the better. I’m stoked to read Dr Steenbarger’s other books and I’ll finish this review with a great quote from the book: Jun 15, Jason Field rated it really liked it Shelves: Contains countless gems of knowledge that can be used in life let alone trading steenbrager.

Well worth the read. Jan 14, Michael Huang rated it it was psychplogy. The author is a psychotherapist who does trading on the side, presumably when the therapy business is slow. Being a trained scientist psychologgy can argue about whether psychotherapy is a true sciencehe applied what he knows steejbarger psychology to the problems traders have — intuitively traders tend to go through emotional roller coasters a lot.

This is a book that documented some of these sessions not always with traders and attempted to draw some general lessons about traading Very disappointing.


This is a book that documented some of these sessions not always with traders and attempted to draw some general lessons about “psychology of trading”. It could be a reasonably good book under a different title, say “Random thoughts from a psychotherapist”, but “psychology of trading” is way out of the league of this book — and the subtitle “tools and techniques for minding the market” is borderline misleading as a title.

Let’s start with the good part. Being a psychotherapist with a long history of practice, the author has an interesting array of client stories to relate. If these are not illuminating, they are at least an interesting collage of people and their problems. Being a presumably good therapist, he will also be able to convey some key insights of the business. For example, he mentions that the purpose of therapy is to “comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable”.

I thought that was cute. Stwenbarger least it tells you that stednbarger you are bored by your comfort, don’t go see a shrink. Unfortunately, the list of the bad part is somewhat longer. In “How to read a book”, Adler and van Doren tell you to X-ray the book in order to understand the general message. This is when I first steenbarged the feeling it’s not looking good. You know the author is going to play hide and seek. Unfortunately, this turned out to be the case.

If the stories are interesting, and the writing is good, I wouldn’t mind nearly as much. But some of the stories are downright weird, leaving you with big question marks in the shape of WTF floating in front of you.

You ask, do we learn anything about trading after all? And that’s the biggest thing. When the lessons are finally psychologyy, they often feel like flimsy narrative to support some vague principles that sounded good. For example, he talks about psychotherapists “make an effort to tune out clients’ words and simply absorb the feeling tone of their verbal and physical communication”. I thought this was a very interesting piece of insight into how they work. But listen to the lesson when it applies to trading: And it gets worse.


Later on, the author explains that forehead skin temperature is associated with cortex activity and he will not issue a trade if the temperature is “below baseline”.

Except it is not. I did a cursory research on forehead temperature with brain activity and found no scholarly article to conjecture and support the belief that lower temperature than baseline means something. There is no citation in the book to support the argument.

This to me is worse, as it is not voodoo-presented-as-voodoo, but voodoo cloaked in scientific robe. I get it that Dr. S needs to make a living and establish himself as an expert in some field and get a reputation to attract clients as well as speaking opportunities.

And who knows, stefnbarger those traders who read books a year, there might be a lot of insights new to someone. But after spending quite some time I don’t drop a book midway reading not at all enlightening nor entertaining pages, I get angry.

But proceed with caution. Sep 13, Nico Nieuwendijk rated it it was amazing. Stwenbarger – in trading circles a famous psychologist and day trader – wrote with ‘The Psychology Of Trading’ one of the most important books about the most important aspect of trading. A must-read for every student as well as the accomplished trader.
