Fresh Perspectives From Trading Coaches

In this post, I thought I would step back and pass along worthwhile ideas from a variety of trading coaches who post to social media.  Ultimately, my hope is that the ideas on this blog--and the ones that I link--can become fuel for your own self-coaching.  The more I stay in this business, the more I realize that the really successful money managers and traders are those who spend as much time studying themselves (and their trading) as they do studying markets.  For them, self-mastery is as much the motivation to compete in markets as making money.  As we launch into a weekend, these posts might spark some self-coaching insights:
