I started trading forex believing that its easy to make big money fast. I had this impression that all I needed to do is fire up my computer, make an informed guess and roll in the profits.

I was very wrong and now 7 months into my trading career, I’ve come to realise the importance of mental skills in my trading.

Thankfully, I’ve found Mark Douglas, author of the two books on either side of this sentence, and reading his book Trading in the Zone: Master the Market with Confidence, Discipline and a Winning Attitude

is helping me with the mental aspects of trading (which is the most difficult to learn, your own personality must be transcended)
