'Trading in the zone' offers specific solutions to the 'people factor' of commodity price movement. It uncovers the true culprit for lack of consistency when it comes to stock picking - lack of focus and self-confidence. Through simple exercises, traders will learn how to think in terms of probabilities, and adopt the specific beliefs necessary to developing a winner's mindset. Along the way, they'll gain keen insights into their own entrenched misconceptions about the market.

In the Zone

User Review  - joyce f. - Overstock.com

I bought this to get information on trading. I then changed my mind and didnt read it. However it was selling faster than fast on *** so I listed it there for a resell. It sold within 15 minutes of listing. This book must be in high demand if it sold that fast. Read full review

User Review  - Valerie - Goodreads

This is a must read for traders! I am relatively new to trading, and there were so many "nuggets" that I took from the book. This book is likely one that I will read again every year! Definitely recommend it! Read full review
