“Have you ever found yourself fully intending to do one thing and ending up doing quite the opposite? Or promising yourself you won’t do something and going ahead and doing it anyway? Or wanting to do something but finding yourself not doing it? These are sins of omission and commission and mixed behavior.”
Are you the reason for your inability to be a prosperous trader? You may see an opportunity, have the courage to invest, and yet end up sabotaging the trade before fruition. She guides you into acknowledging your strengths and weaknesses and gives practical successful resolutions.
Ruth’s first book on trading psychology, Exceptional Trading, is a well acknowledged success and this book should equal or exceed your expectations. The reader will want to review the book each year to assess his current trading ‘habitudes’ and make adjustments under her competent tutelage.
You get an extra bonus when you purchase this title or her first book. As you recognize your shortcomings and bad ‘habitudes’ in trading, you’ll find you can apply them to your whole life. Along with owners of her first book, you will begin looking for another new title authored by Ruth Barrons Roosevelt.
