Dr. Andrew Menaker is a licensed clinical psychologist who has been coaching traders and money managers on performance improvement for more than 25 years. He also has an extensive background in training C-level executives and entrepreneurs all around the world on emotion management and creative development.
For those of you who have been following Topstep for a while, you may remember Dr. Menaker as one of the Performance Coaches from our “Market Therapy” show on Squawk Radio. We’re happy to announce that he will once again be joining the Topstep team as a trading psychologist to help guide our traders on their journey to professionalize their passion for trading.
The Market's Going to do What it Wants. How do we Adapt?
As far as how he’s maneuvering these markets, Dr. Menaker believed that “we don’t see the market as it is, we see it as we are.” In a nutshell, he’s saying that It’s not the market that’s being irrational, it’s the people trading it. To be successful during times of market uncertainty, traders need to learn to adapt and adjust to constant changes.
Rolling with the punches isn’t always the easiest thing to do for a lot of traders, that’s why we’re so excited to have him back. We’re planning to start pumping out a whole lot of content focusing on trader psychology. Everything from blogs, to videos, to podcasts, and maybe even some live Q & A sessions to address your questions about the markets.
Dr. Menaker recently joined us on the Limit-Up podcast to discuss the difference between feelings and emotions – words we use interchangeably, but mean different things. He has some great tips for day traders interested in micro-contracts and also talked about what he calls your “inner market.” Listen to get in touch with your inner market.
