Summary

Want to be a successful trader? It's not enough to master generic trading strategies: you must first know yourself. You must understand your own emotional predilections and psychological tendencies. You must learn how to match your strategies to your own personality. You must choose strategies that are sustainable over the long haul, that you can tolerate–and execute.

 

Michael Martin's The Inner Voice of Trading explains why deep self-knowledge is so crucial to successful trading, helps you gain that self-knowledge, and guides you in applying it. Drawing on interviews and discussions with great traders like Michael Marcus and Ed Seykota, he shows how to quiet your mind, develop an "inner voice" you can rely on, and make it your most important trading ally.

Author Biography

Michael Martin has been a successful trader for over 20 years. He’s been teaching for the last 13 of those years through UCLA Extension and the New York Society of Security Analysts (NYSSA), a member society of the CFA Institute. During that time, he also served as Associate Editor at Trader Monthly. He was born and raised in New York and now lives in Los Angeles.

 

He contributes to The Huffington Post, The Business Insider, and his blog MartinKronicle.com. He has also been published in Barron’s.

 

His interest in trading commodities began as a student, both in the classroom and at work. It was during a random work-study program that he got introduced to creating seasonal models for Heating Oil and Natural Gas for a large hedger using Lotus 123.

 

That led to working on Wall Street and trading commodity accounts. The commissions were gigantic, but he figured he could earn several times more by earning an incentive fee. After only 3 years at a brokerage firm, he started his own company.

 

After moving to Los Angeles from Manhattan, he started his own CTA and also began teaching. Around that time he joined the Incline Village Trading Tribe and flew from Los Angeles to Lake Tahoe for meetings. He also formed the Trading Tribe in Los Angeles, for which he was Chief. Coincidence or not, he was ranked #1 by AutumnGold around that time.

 

His trading courses are available online and can be found at MartinKronicle.com.
