Mindfulness for the Markets is a unique two day course that introduces traders and investment managers to mindfulness techniques that can enhance their decision making and performance. It blends proven mindfulness-based approaches with stress physiology, neuroscience and performance psychology to provide a practical methodology to help you to train your trading and investing brain, develop your ‘mind fitness’, strengthen your psychology and increase your mental edge.
The use of mindfulness is growing, largely due to its rapidly expanding scientific evidence base, and it is now being used by the military, athletes and sports teams, law enforcement agencies, the corporate sector and a growing number of traders and fund managers because of the many benefits it provides.
The benefits to traders and investment managers of practising mindfulness include reduced stress reactivity, improved emotional regulation, lower levels of impulsivity, enhanced intuition and less negative thinking. It also enhances self-control and discipline and improves attention and focus, whilst reducing proneness to behavioural and decision biases.
This course is led by Steve Ward, one of the world’s top trading and investing performance coaches, qualified mindfulness teacher, and author of ‘Tradermind – How To Get A Mindful Edge In The Markets (Wiley 2014)’. Each delegate will receive a copy of his book.
