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.

    Will it be available like your other books, in paperback, or only Kindle? Love EVERYTHING you do, have read all your books AND have taken the Trading Mastery Course as well….

    • Jason, thank you! I appreciate it, and above all, I’m glad you’re finding value in the work that I do here.

      I’ll get the paperback version out there soon. In the meantime, feel free to download the e-book version. It’s free until the end of the day. It’s a short read so it’s perfect for smartphones, tablets, computers, and E-readers.

      If there’s anything I can help with, let me know Jason.

        Thanks for quick response, but where is the download? In members area?

        • Hi Jason, it’s actually in the Trading For A Living course. I think you have the Trading Psychology Mastery course if I’m not mistaken.

          I’m sending you an email right away.

          • Jason F Kaufman

            Received. Thanks so much. You are correct, I have the Mastery. I am working another system right now, and the composure you have taught me has been as critical as the system’s technical analysis, but I will invest in your trading course, I am sure. Can I ask, the difference between the course and your new book. I image you go into more detail in the course, but can someone glean the essentials of the system from the book alone? Thanks again for the email you sent 🙂

          • Jason, not a problem 🙂
            Also I’m glad you found the first course useful. In Around The World, Day Trading The Spy, we go through my short term day trading strategy — The Rainmaker. But in the Trading For A Living course, we go deeper. You see how I run my trading business from A to Z.

            In short, I’m able to trade for a living because my goal as a trader is emotional management. And so, I have different streams of income coming my way that allow me to maintain stability of mind day after day. So drawdowns that inevitably occur on the trading side, they don’t affect me that much anymore because no matter what, I’m still making money every month.

        Yeah, went to my courses and do not see it there. So where is the e-book exactly? Thanks again

    Hello, I’ve read half your book and I’m confused by something. It says in it that you developed “The Rainmaker” strategy around 2012 and showed it to other people with great success. It’s an option-based strategy. However, in a comment somewhere on this blog you stated 8 month ago that you were just starting to test using options, in a test account. Which one is it? What’s going on here, is it something that you only back-tested or only used for a few months “for real”?

    Btw, there is a lot of bold/larger character phrases in there that really mess up the formatting on the kindle.

    • ulricr, thanks for your comment. Yes, ive developped the rainmaker in 2012 and ive been using it live, with real money ever since. Its a great strategy. It has been performing very well in recent years — even better than my other longer term stock trading strategy. But dont believe me. Open your trading software, pull up a chart of the spy and see for yourself. I dont know which comment you’re referring to but its true, im always looking to test new strategies and instruments and a few months ago ive been trying my hands at binary options in a test account. At the moment, the results haven’t been conclusive.

      If you have any other questions, or concerns, dont hesitate. Im happy to clear any confusion.

      Thanks for the feedback regarding the formatting. I appreciate it. I’ll look into it when i have a moment.
