In the continuing win-win spirit of educating traders at minimal cost and continuing our support of charities, readers of Chronicles of a Million Dollar Trader can receive $250 off the timeless Jellie Webinar Series, while benefiting needy children via World Vision.

This week’s heartfelt diary entry looks back at my own trading and passing of a great mentor, as well as asking ourselves how to optimize the market passion which we’ve been given.  Thank you in advance for my indulgence.

Two links referenced in the video include scorecard files and Steve Harvey’s outstanding video on “jumping” and knowing your parachute will open.

Today’s entry discusses my perspectives of personal trading and market rhythms during the first week of the year, and my plans to prepare for the coming week. I also briefly touch on the possibility of a 13th trader training effort toward the end, emphasizing that it’s not a magical “cure-all”, yet continue to make available as long as interest and feedback remains strong. Either way, I’ll be trading cuz that’s what I do!

And thank you TOS for postponing your system upgrade until later as Monday AM should be wild.

By Don Miller · Comments Comments Off

This weekend’s diary entry focuses on trust and instinct as I worked out of the case of the Yips in part by looking to the games of golf and football.

Here’s the ESPN link on Malcolm Butler’s training referenced which included catching balls with his eyes closed.

Getting Over The Trading Yips

By Don Miller · Comments Comments Off

Tonight’s journal entry follows up on my previous entry and discusses my attempt to get over a case of the trading Yips in part by adding a fourth leg to the pre-existing three legged stool of focus, motivation, and showing up.

Thanks to all for your thoughtful feedback.

And so the journey continues.

The Weekend Trader – Out of Step & Pissed Off

By Don Miller · Comments Comments Off

The title says it all as my reads (A+) and executions (D) this week weren’t even on the same planet.

Maybe the self-directed anger will help … we’ll see.

Today, we look back at many key industry contributors while we look forward to the blank canvas of 2016 and the brush in your hand while we ask the question … what are you going to do with it?

This weekend’s edition returns to ideas from The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy to boost trading results and consistency, including using competition and opposing views to your advantage, as well as installing your own “excessive media filter.”

Also, we’ve begun firming up dates for the sole live 2016 Jellie Trader Training effort (Lucky Team #13!) which we expect will take place in February. Please me at don@donmillereducation.com if you’re interested if you haven’t done so already as space will be limited to ensure a quality experience for all. Please note we’ve also converted the popular Jellie team webinars to MP3 files for those unable to participate or who are interested in a lower tuition option.

Have a great weekend and outstanding trading week!
