What Is Meta-Trading?

Meta is a Greek prefix, meaning above or about. In this context, it refers to the fact that we traders – indeed, all humans – possess reflexive self-consciousness. That is, we not only think about the external world – about the markets, since we’re talking about trading – but we think about our thoughts and emotions as well! We call this a Meta-Move or going Meta . So Meta-Trading is going Meta to trading – thinking about your trading, and thinking about your thoughts and emotions as a trader.

What Is Coaching?

Professional coaching is an on-going partnership that helps clients produce fulfilling results in their personal and professional lives. Through the process of coaching, clients deepen their learning, improve their performance and enhance their quality of life. Professional coaches are trained to listen and observe, to customize their approach to the individual client's needs and to elicit solutions and strategies from the client.

Coaches believe that the client is naturally creative and resourceful and that the coach's job is to provide support to that creativity. The coach provides feedback and an objective perspective and the client is responsible for taking the steps to produce the results he or she wants.

And a Meta-Trading Coach Is?

A Meta-Trading Coach is a coach who helps you go Meta to your current trading – to take your trading to higher levels.

What Tools Do You Use?

I have two sets of tools – mathematical and psychological. The mathematics ranges from simple addition and subtraction to the stochastic partial differential equations of options pricing theory. I’ve been a working applied mathematician for 40 years, and I’ve spent 20 years studying the mathematics of computational finance and trading systems.

The psychological tools are hypnosis, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Meta-States® and Neuro-Semantics®. I am a certified hypnotherapist, Meta-NLP® and Neuro-Semantics® Master Practitioner and Trainer. Together, these tools – mathematical and psychological – create a synergy, so I can help you take your investing and trading to a higher level – to a place where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts!

How Do I Get Started?

1. Send me an describing what you want to accomplish with Meta-Trading Coaching. If I believe what you want is a good match for my rather unique service, I will reply by e-mail with my phone number and a time for you to call me. If I don’t believe it is a good match, I will tell you up front. This helps insure that the first phone call will be a productive one. Many simple problems are solved on the first call!

2. The first call is free (well, you do have to pay the long-distance charges) up to two hours. If we agree that a Meta-Trading Coaching relationship is a win for both of us, we will make arrangements for payment and schedule the first month of telephone sessions. Unlike many coaches, I work on a month-by-month basis and don’t require a longer commitment. And I offer an unconditional money-back guarantee!

How can I do this? First of all, the processes of Neuro-Semantics are powerful and can achieve significant psychological change in a single session. Second, in both the mathematics and the psychology of trading, I look for the “low-hanging fruit” – the simple, small, obvious things in your investing or trading that are holding you back. The odds are you’re already doing lots of things right!

3. Traditional coaching is usually done in half-hour telephone sessions, usually once a week. However, because of the complex psychology and mathematics of trading, I prefer one-hour and sometimes even two-hour sessions, with e-mail interchange of technical details and data such as spreadsheets. I don’t sell software or trading systems, and I don’t expect you to buy any software.
