StockTickr Recommended by Brett Steenbarger in Enhancing Trader Performance

November 8th, 2006

I was ecstatic to see my copy of Brett Steenbarger‘s new book Enhancing Trader Performance arrive last week. I was even happier to see StockTickr Pro listed as a recommended resource in the book.

I knew from reading Brett’s blog that he regularly exercises, but I didn’t realize the kind of shape he’s really in. Take a look at the picture of him on the cover of the book:

I’m a little over 50 pages into the book, and I can already say that it’s very good. Here’s a nugget that I hadn’t thought about before, but it makes perfect sense. Brett’s referring to a trader that can’t muster the discipline to stick with a certain trading style:

Their losses of discipline are intuitive gravitations to their natural trading styles.

… and a little bit later…

When you have found your niche, you don’t need discipline to do the right things; you won’t want to do anything else.

I’m getting a lot out of this book and I’d highly recommend it. I was also happy to read that his first book (review) is still selling well.

Congrats, Brett!

    I agree the book is great. I read it last week and did a review on it over at my site.
