Book Review: Trading in the Zone

Trading in the Zone: Master the Market with Confidence, Discipline and a Winning Attitude is written by Mark Douglas. Mark Douglas was a trader and trading educator. He is known for his teachings and insights on trading psychology. He is mostly known for his trading publications Trading in the Zone and The Disciplined Trader.

Trading in the Zone provides various insights and advice on trading psychology and is recommended by some of the world's best retail and professional traders. Most fail to be profitable in their trading. This is usually due to the lack of a trading action plan and/or following emotions and letting trading psychology influence
trading decisions. This book focuses on the latter.

Below is my review of Trading in the Zone...

It's all about trading psychology

There are very few trading books that are just about trading psychology and trading emotions. Trading in the Zone is a unique book and is written by someone who is renowned as an expert in this field. If you want to read a book about trading psychology, this could be the best publication available.

It should be part of your trading library

Trading in the Zone is one the best selling and most referenced books amongst traders. If you are planning on having a trading library, this book should be included.


Most traders that have read Trading in the Zone love it. I personally was a little disappointed with the publication and thought that it was not that well-written. I am sure the content has been useful to many but it wasn't for me. I recommend reading Trading in the Zone as most do find it a beneficial read but I personally don't recommend this book.

The Complete Investment Banking Course - Trading Course Review

The Complete Investment Banking Course is not a trading course.

The reason why I wanted to take and review this course is that many financial traders have an active interest in investment banking and their role within equity, debt and other financial markets.
