My name is Yvan Byeajee and I'm the man behind Trading Composure. I'm a trader, trading psychology consultant, and meditation teacher. l also like to think of myself as a ‘philosopher of markets’―my daily reflections on trading, risk, uncertainty, mindfulness, life, and other topics are followed by well over 200k people from all over the world.
I have been fascinated by financial markets since my teenage years. I discovered trading around 97-98 and began to trade for a living towards the end of 06.
The journey wasn’t easy; in fact, I’ve failed a lot on my way to consistency and success in the market.
Despite those failures, I never looked back, and today I stand where I am because of my undying perseverance… most bystanders in my life have called it folly.
Today, I trade for myself and manage a rather large fund (for a retail trader) for my clients―a close circle of family and friends.
Outside of my trading hours, I keep myself busy by helping aspiring consistent traders go through the same process of internal transformation I went through to win the mental game of trading.
