Why a Seminar About Mistakes?

It has often been said that we learn more from mistakes than from successes. But traders tend to focus on, and are fascinated by, success – especially the success of others. Unfortunately, the advice these pros offer on how to make money is often contradictory.

People lose money in the markets either because of errors in their analysis or because of psychological factors which prevent the application of good analysis. Most of the losses are due to the latter.

All analytical methods have some validity and make allowances for the times when they will not work. But psychological factors can keep you in a losing position and cause you to abandon one method for another when the first one produces a losing position.

Most discussions of the psychological aspects of the markets focus on behavioral psychology or psychoanalysis, i.e. sublimation, regression, suppression, anger, self-punishment.

This isn't to say such approaches aren't instructive, it's just that most people find it hard to digest and apply the information presented. But more importantly, such approaches are trying to change your natural psychology – a difficult, if not impossible, task.

This two-DVD video seminar with an easy-to-follow workbook takes a different tack. It entertains and educates you on the psychology of market losses using layman's terms, anecdotally, through the story of a former Governor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange who actually lost over a million dollars in the market.

One of the most important factors affecting the market's supply-and-demand equation (i.e., selling and buying transactions in the market) is the expectations of the participants — expectations about where prices are headed, fundamental reports and the market's response to news releases.

The Federal Reserve Board recently adopted an expectations model of the markets for economic forecasting, and now you can apply the same approach to your trading. In testimony before the Senate Banking Committee in 1997, Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan described the expectations model this way: “Participants in the financial markets are susceptible to waves of optimism. Excessive optimism sows the seed of its own reversal. When unwarranted expectations are ultimately not realized, the unwinding of these excesses can act to amplify a downturn, much the way they can amplify the upswing.” This session teaches you how to identify and take advantage of these waves (trends) of optimism and pessimism and their reversals. You will also learn how Brendan combines elements of the economic science used in the Chicago Board of Trade's Market Profile and the Nobel Prize-winning theories of expectations (as expressed in sentiment surveys) to develop a method for analyzing and trading the futures markets.
