This class serves as one of the three elective courses required to complete your certification.
Adopt or refine the habits – psychological and analytical – needed to acquire mastery of the Wyckoff Method of trading. Anyone who has been trading for more than a few months knows how normal human emotions can lead to self-sabotage and trading losses. The “smart money” (or in Wyckoffian terms, the Composite Operator) extracts enormous profits from retail traders by exploiting these emotions and forcing behavioral errors. Without appropriate attitudes and habits, even traders skilled in chart analysis can often be wrong-footed by large market operators.
Through many years of trading and teaching, Roman Bogomazov and Bruce Fraser have identified and distilled critical mental practices and behaviors that can help traders decisively put the odds back in their favor.
