What Is Meta-Trading?
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
is going Meta to trading – thinking about your trading, and thinking
about your thoughts and emotions as a trader.
What Is 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
And a Meta-Trading Coach Is?
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
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
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.
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
I don’t sell software or trading systems,
and I don’t expect you to buy any software.
