Changes to the Trading Psychology Weblog

Dear Readers,

Starting this Sunday, the Trading Psychology Weblog will join the rest of my personal site with a weekly publication schedule. This will enable me to focus on broad market themes, and it will accomodate my expanding schedule on the road working with traders.

Some of the daily indicators that had been part of the Weblog will be posted to TraderFeed, particularly when there are significant market developments. Similarly, I will be posting worthwhile blog links and resources to both sites.

The personal site will continue to post articles and reflections on trader performance. My hope is that the weekly features on that site will provide a big picture context for traders, regardless of their trading style and time frame.

Thanks for your interest and support. Look for the format changes to go into effect on Sunday!

Hi Brett,

I'm sorry to hear that the weblog is going to be a weekly rather than daily event. Its been my first port of call every morning for a long time now.

I am not exaggerating when I say that I would not still be trading today if it was not for the weblog. It was no coincidence that my own trading started to improve when I stopped paying the market wizz I used to subscribe to and instead put the ideas you posted into practice.

What you have achieved with the combination of the Weblog and Traderfeed has been amazing. I can't think of a better source of advice on trading than the collected works on your websites. Far, far better, in my opinion, than any single book on trading. Its funny how the structure of an internet blog seems so well suited to education. The steady drip, drip of a few hundred well chosen words a day seems to work wonders.

I'm very glad to hear that you are going to keep posting some of your indicators on your own site as considering these has become an integral part of my daily routine.

Through the links you have posted on the weblog I have have found many leads that have helped to develop my trading further. I'm thinking here especially of people like Jason Geopfert, Henry Castens and Charles Kirk who I had not heard of before reading about them on your blog.

Hopefully, your readers will still get their daily dose of creative ways of thinking about the markets mixed with a large large slice of integrity on your other sites. Thank you. Bryan Wendon

Brett: I'm going to miss the daily pivot, support and resistance numbers you post to your weblog. Is there somewhere you can direct me to on your website or elsewhere so that I can learn to calculate them myself? Your articles have been a big help!

Hi Bryan,

That is high praise indeed. Thank you so much for the note. I will indeed track significant findings among the daily indicators and hopefully catch some of the larger moves as well!

Hi Joe,

Thanks for the note. The method for calculating pivot levels can be Googled, but is also posted to TraderFeed. If you do an advanced search in Alexa or Technorati and use "pivot point" as the search term and look specifically in the TraderFeed URL, you'll get all the relevant posts and info.
