You need to get a grip on your own mind before getting a grip on trading

For me, the single most important aspect in trading is dealing with the psychological hurdle. You can be an economics major, a chart analysing wizard, yet none of it means anything if you can't get your mind in the right place to trade first.

The psychology of trading features highly on the list of trading objectives at Market Tutors and they have brought in a former LIFFE trader turned performance coach to help traders focus their minds on trading.

Here's part one of a series of video's with Stephen Desborough who will be teaching traders at the Market Tutors workshop 26th November. The course will be held in London and there's still some places available. ForexLive has an exclusive discount for our readers whereby the course is £199+vat instead of £299+vat. For that you will also get 3 months access to the professional Livesquawk services instead of the 2 months they're offering as standard.
