What if the mystery of market crashes stems from a simple but total misunderstanding of our own minds?

Market Mind Games

Could everything we think we know about ourselves – intelligence and rationality versus emotion and irrationality – be wildly off the mark? With these words, Denise Shull introduces her radical – and supremely rational – approach to risk.

Her vision stems from the indisputable fact that human beings can’t make any decision at all without emotion and that emotion gets the first – and last – word when it comes to our perceptions and judgments. She started out managing major accounts for IBM and then chose to research unconscious emotional patterns instead of getting her MBA. Next she became a trader and trading desk manager while continuing to study biopsychology. We are all taught that sidelining our emotions is the gmes way to make good decisions – Shull declares the converse: Attempting to control them actually increases the risks we take.

Shull advocates treating feelings as data, and she convincingly argues that doing so eradicates the baffling question that repeats itself in our heads after making a poor investing decision: Through a series of lectures, Shull logically but engagingly connects emotions, beliefs, and context to our innate reaction to uncertainty and risk yes, the two are different.

In Market Mind Games, she merges more than 20 years of studying risk decisions into a single, astoundingly effective strategy. A reasonable approach to emotion is the best and only way to win the investing game.

The methods Shull details in Market Mind Games shake the foundation amrket conventional market and decision psychology.

Most traders, whether novice or experienced, at some point deal with the emotions of trading and investing. Novices will shrug off the psychology of trading as not being important. Others who say they are experienced feel they have conquered their emotions, or are looking for a roadmap to controlling emotions.

Those who truly want to make themselves and their trading business truly better will embrace the concepts mjnd this book. I approached the book with a good bit of skepticism.

As Gakes delved into it, I was most pleased with the way Denise weaved fictional characters into the presentation of her material. It has long been established that traders must control their emotions.

Yet, Denise presents the fact that we are emotional mwrket and controlling emotions is difficult if not impossible. However, by embracing our emotions and understanding our emotions, instead of ignoring them, we can cross a divide that increases the probability of success in the investment world.

In fact, I have taken the principles offered in the book and have applied them to other areas of my life only to find increasing benefits. Most people look for an answer, a technique, or whatever they feel will bring them success in trading. The answer, as described in the book, is really in understanding our own emotions when approaching the markets. Since reading the book, not only gamse my trading improved dramatically but, after years of trying to control emotions, I allow them to reveal themselves, in trading and in other areas of life.

This has given me more complete understanding of how I interpret information coming from the market and what emotions drive me to enter, exit or stand aside. This is an excellent book. I urge anyone who reads it to take time with it and think through it carefully.

Market Mind Games Summary and Quotes

After reading the first couple of chapters, I found myself reading, contemplating the material, applying it to my own trading and then moving on. I am very pleased I took the time to really indulge myself in the material Denise offers.

What an ‘outside the box’ book for day, swing or long-term market traders! Recommended by an experienced Chicago Stock Floor trader, Denise Shull’s book opens the idea of ‘randomness’ and ‘mass emotion’ as a market mover. Shull has her own blog and Twitter; read it! For a change, it’s a rapid-reading book that will fascinate you.

Well, as the author states in the last page, the real market mind games happen between your two ears. I love her challenge, make working on yourself your edge in trading. I will take that challenge, Denise Shull!!! Thank you for writing a book like no other trading book and making it enjoyable and thoughtful.

Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This is a great book. For me, it provided many “aha” moments. You just cannot “will” yourself into being disciplined because your actions are based on very deep experiences from before but also on the present context. The previous trade or trades always have an impact and leave a mark.

That mark is sometimes on the subconscious level and not readily in your awareness. When you are in that situation, your decision making process is affected to the point where you cannot fully trade to your plan. Just having an awareness that this happens, you can try to resolve as many contexts as you can and it will bring a new perspective and revolutionize your trading. Just a couple of weeks after reading the book, I have begun to approach my trading slightly differently.


But, that slight difference sometimes is all you need to go from a losing or breakeven trader to a profitable trader. I also liked the concept of fractal-emotional context which explains why it so difficult to change some of your problem trading behaviors.

All of us have a couple of them and they are a constant challenge. We feel like we have control over those behaviors but they keep popping back up periodically after we think we have moved forward which is extremely frustrating. Figuring out your fractal-emotional contexts could give you deep insights into some of the most persistent challenges you’ve been experiencing as a trader.

This book is definitely a game-changer. This is not a book to be read once and put on the shelf. This is a book to read and re-read over and over until the ground breaking concepts presented here sink in to your mind and become second nature.

I’ve read sections of this book many times and my trading results have ben greatly improved and my enjoyment of trading has also expanded immensely. This is a must read for anyone who is serious about improving their bottom line when it coms to trading the markets. One person found this helpful. You’re looking for a solution that will guarantee you profits. Too bad that doesn’t exist Since this book provides a science-backed, practical, solution to your real problem, you’ll hate it.

Market Mind Games: A Radical Psychology of Investing, Trading and Risk

You’ll probably leave a three star review, if one at all, never trying any of the simple yet effective tasks to improve your odds of making money trading. Soldier on intrepid speculator! Perhaps, one day, you’ll return to begin your real education. I’m in the process of my second pass thru this engaging book. For me, it offers insights into the “whys” of getting into and out of trades.

I like Denise writing style for an otherwise typically dry topic. I heard about the book from the instructor of an investment course I was taking. He’s a friend of Denise and mentioned her book and showed us one of her YouTube videos during class. Denise provides an in-depth understanding of how events and feelings impact our trading behavior in the stock market. Applying her thought processes and observations to my non trading life exposed recurring patterns that I had never considered.
