Neda earned a master’s degree in Computer Science from Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, Canada. Following work as a software developer and computer science researcher for several organizations, Neda has taught since early 2019 in the computing department at the British Columbia Institute of Technology. It was back in 2015 though that Neda (very randomly!) came across an “Introduction to mindfulness for those who can’t meditate” class on Facebook, and reading that one post began a life-changing journey into the world of mindfulness meditation. Although it did take time to be comfortable with practicing mindfulness meditation every day, after seeing the values and benefits of that daily practice, Neda set about to hold virtual and in-person meetings to assist individuals in practicing meditation and establishing it as a regular part of their daily life.

If there is such a thing as a secret to the nature of trading, psychology of trading is it.

Trading is a performance sport and mindset is the competitive advantage. To be a successful trader or athlete, technical skill is a requirement. But technical skill alone is not enough. In sport and trading, where split-second decisions and impulsive actions can make or break a career, mindset is what separates the good from the great. Drawing on cutting-edge performance psychology and the mental training techniques of professional athletes, this webinar will explore the similarities between professional sport and trading and provide practical tips for you to gain the mental edge in your trading.

In this module you learn what discipline is in the trading environment, importance of disciple, causes for lapses in discipline, and steps to improve discipline. A person can be well-disciplined in a particular profession; however, that discipline does not necessarily carry over into being a well-disciplined trader. Learn why other traders are so disciplined in the areas you struggle at and how you can become a more disciplined trader.
Do you know exactly what you need to do to make profitable trades, but find yourself repeatedly getting in your own way? Being over-active in the market, revenge trading, ignoring limits or hesitating to take on risk because you are afraid to make a mistake? These are all ways that your mind and emotions can sabotage your trading process, even for the most technically-skilled trader. You bring yourself to every trade, so any limiting beliefs, negative behaviour patterns or self-doubt that linger in your subconscious, will determine your actions in the markets. This webinar explores how increasing self-awareness and facing your core self can improve consistency and profitability, and provides a practical roadmap for deep personal transformation.
In this townhall Mike and Dr. Katz will discuss some of the worst and best trading moments in traders careers and how it has assisted them in becoming better traders. Of course you there will also be an opportunity for you to share your worst or best moments if you desire.
This community is life changing. When I started, I was a nurse working sometimes 16-hour shifts. I knew I wanted the freedom and flexibility of trading.
Bear Bull Traders gave me this and so much more. I now have a new career that I love. The features and content they put out is second to none.
BBT is a great community to be a part of to develop as a trader. The chatroom and the educational resources are invaluable no matter your experience.
All of the members are incredibly helpful and questions are encouraged – it’s a serious but welcoming place to learn.
Andrew, his book, the Bear Bull Traders (BBT) team and the BBT chat room have reinvented and redefined Day Trading.
There are many chat rooms out there, and I have seen and tried many of them, and there is nothing that comes close to BBT. Their classes and success webinars are worth their weight in gold.
