The Psychology of Risk For Traders | FREE MINI COURSE

The world is an uncertain and risky place. I’m sure this is no surprise to you. Risk is everywhere and associated with almost everything.

And, like it or not, risk is a big part of trading. Losses are going to happen, and we’ll all have to deal with them on a regular basis.

Anytime you place a trade, the trade may result in losses.

In fact, it won’t work more often than we’d like to think, and the traders who come out on top, despite the inevitability of losses, are the ones who are really good at managing risk.

The good thing is that we’re all risk managers, whether we’re aware of it or not – as humans, risk management is just part of our DNA.

In life, we’re continually weighing the costs and benefits of every decision we make.

But, in a game like trading where the potential to get rich quick is omnipresent and irresistibly enticing, it’s easy to get confused about how to maximize our chances of success.

Developing a More Thoughtful Approach to Risk

To come out on top as a trader, one has to learn to approach risk in a more calculated and rational way, and in January, I’m releasing a mini-course on just that.

My goal with this course isn’t to come up with yet another guide on the mathematics and logistics of risk — how much you should risk on your trades, how to position size, where you should place your stop-losses, etc.

There’s already a ton of info on that on the internet — just type risk management in trading on Google or Youtube and you’ll get hundreds of results.

Instead, I want to offer something different: I want to help deepen your current understanding of risk.

This is important because you can’t expect to be fully proficient at managing risk if you don’t fully understand it.

Deepening Your Understanding of Risk

Here are some ideas we’ll explore in this mini-course:

  • What is risk?
  • What is Thoughtful Risk Management, And Why is It So Vital?
  • The Upside of Risk
  • Asymmetric Risk
  • Human Fallibility and Attitudes Towards Risk
  • Consistency: What It Is and What It Isn’t
  • Psychological Tricks to Better Manage Risk

If you regularly come to this website which strictly deals with the mental and emotional aspects of trading, then I assume that you’ve been trading for a while and you’ve already figured out a trading system and a risk management plan.

But now you want to work on your mindset.

That’s the missing piece for you in order to come out on top and reach your full potential as a trader.

The Psychology of Risk for Traders mini-course will help you in that area – in fact, it’ll also be a nice complement to The Trading Psychology Mastery Course.

Release Date: January

Traders tend to understand fairly easily the mathematics and logistics of risk, yet the psychology of risk is where they fall short.

The Psychology of Risk for Traders mini-course will help you develop a more thoughtful approach to risk management so that you can begin to manage uncertainty and minimize adverse events more effectively, in the market, but more broadly in your life.

You don’t have to like risk. But you will have to manage it if you want to thrive as a trader. Then, why not do it effectively?

Take this course in January and I guarantee that you’ll have a completely different take on risk; it’ll improve your capacity to manage it; it’ll improve your confidence, and the results will begin to show very quickly.

This course will FREE for a limited time.

I've been trading for a living since 2006. By merging mindfulness (an in-depth study of the mind and its tendencies in the present moment), a good trading process, and an efficient business practice, I went from being a losing trader to a consistently profitable one. Through my work here at Trading Composure, I aim at helping you do the same.
