Use sports psychology to overcome mental obstacles to trading excellence Like professional athletes, traders' livelihoods depend on their ability to maintain peak performance under enormous pressure.

Written by a renowned sports psychologist/trainer and a Division I athlete-turned-trader, this book provides proven techniques for increasing mental discipline, acuity, and maintaining a positive mental attitude. Throughout, Shane Murphy and Doug Hirschhorn use effective analogies from the world of sports to convey the concepts of trading psychology. Shane Murphy, PhD, is a prominent sport psychologist and assistant professor in psychology at Western Connecticut State University. Doug Hirschhorn, MS, is the Director of Trader Motivation and Performance at Schonfeld Securities, LLC.
