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.

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.

In this webinar, Neda will talk about how by practicing mindfulness we will get a deeper understanding of ourselves. Mindfulness helps us get intimate with our present moment experience, notice our emotional and behavioral thought patterns, and respond to them wisely.
During this townhall Mike and Dr. Katz will invite two traders from the community to share their biggest psychological issue while trading and why they believe it holds them back. Join us to watch and listen to how Dr. Katz assists the traders in identifying the root cause behind the issue and steps to begin addressing it.
“Whether you think you can or you think you can’t – you’re right.” Mindset plays a hugely important role in successful trading. However, a ‘negative mindset’ can actually take many forms. There are many sneaky thinking styles that we may not even class as being negative until we understand how that thinking impacts our actions in the markets. This webinar unearths some of the most common mind-traps that result in losing trades, and provides practical tips for cultivating a mindset that will support you in becoming more consistently profitable.
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.
