Welcome to the New Blog!

This blog will support my new book, which will be available in 2009. Entitled Becoming Your Own Trading Coach, it consists of very practical, user-friendly lessons that will show traders how they can use time-tested psychological techniques to advance their learning curve, improve their performance, and effectively deal with the stresses that are common to trading.

Wiley will be the book's publisher, and the book will contain several new elements not found in either of my two other trading books or in the Trader Feed blog. I'll be blogging about the book as I'm writing it to keep readers posted about its features and its development. In the interim, if you have topics you'd like to see covered in the text, by all means leave your suggestions as comments to this and future posts.

One of the topics I'm most excited about covering is one that I've been wanting to share for quite a while, but haven't figured out the right venue until now: how to use Excel to identify historical patterns in markets. Part of self-coaching is training yourself to find potential edges in the markets; the new book will be the first resource I'm aware of to tackle that training.

Thanks for the interest!
