Dear Fellow Trader
I'm going to cut straight to the chase...
Life is too short to 'muck around' and I'm sure that you have already invested a huge amount of time (and money) in getting to the
point where you are at now. I know I had.
That said, if you did answer 'yes' to any of the questions above, then that's a sure sign that you've fallen victim (like me) to the
same traps that empty the accounts of thousands of traders every day.
My first year in trading left me a bit angry, extremely frustrated and bewildered. Probably like you, I consider myself to be a
pretty astute person - a little smarter than average. Most traders are. You just won't find average people trading the markets. It
takes more money than the average person can muster just to show up.
With that said, my first foray into trading ended by having so many losses that I had to stop, step back and take a break. I didn't
quit though. At this point, I had a love/hate relationship with trading - it lured me in. Despite the fact that I had 'given' my money
back to the market, I still had this nagging insistent belief that I could be a successful trader.
You see, I am an Engineer by trade and it's my business to figure out how things work. So utilizing my Engineering training I started
asking a new set of questions and began looking to different sources for the answers.
I found that there are plenty of books on the 'traders mindset', 'trading psychology' and other similar topics, yet so many people continue to fail. In my
mind this is illogical since most 'would be' traders are already successful (in other professions) before they ever get into trading.
They already have 'good heads' on their shoulders, have commonsense and know how to take action.
I continued to dig deeper...
I sought the guidance of experts within their field, including a certified trading psychologist, who helped me to unravel what
went wrong. Why is it so many smart people have such difficulty making money through trading? I reached the following conclusion.
Trading is both a skill and an art form. It involves both technical ability as well as emotional management. The challenges we face are
actually from causes that aren't readily apparent. These causes are very subtle yet very powerful.
With the benefit of my engineering background, pursuing my interest in human behavior, and armed with pertinent information from the
right people, I was able to determine where I went wrong. I discovered that there are certain events (40 at my last count) that happen to all traders when they begin trading. These events
affect virtually everyone and are the root cause as to why 90% of traders lose and it's the same for all traders!
So what separates the 10% of traders who succeed?
Through the years, on their journey to becoming successful traders, they have consciously (or subconsciously) learnt to overcome the
effects of these events - what I call "The Subtle Trap of Trading." That said, even for the very best traders, this took a very long
time with a never-ending amount of unexpected "dues to pay".
So how can you learn these same lessons in the shortest possible time and almost immediately improve your trading results?

of the nightmares people encounter would have been avoided had they taken the time to read and follow the principles

There are many facets to long-term successful trading, and the skills and competencies that are necessary to make a

This course will assist you in doing just that.
Brian is able to help people understand why the odds are against them, as well as what you can do to turn those odds
around in your favor. As I read this course for the first time, I was struck by how many of the pitfalls he mentions that I myself went
through as a developing trader. I only wish Brian had published The Subtle Trap of Trading 15 years ago!
