Market Mind Games: The Book

Conventional wisdom tells us to “remove the emotions” when it comes to investing. In Market Mind Games, Denise combines her years of study in neuroscience with her extensive trading experience to explain the basics of neuroscience and how to rethink your thinking about market risk. The spectrum that includes confidence or conviction is a feeling or emotional spectrum. Making it more explicit leads to better results.

Market Mind Games provides a pragmatic approach to develop a strategy for your mind to work in harmony with your strategy for the markets. “Games” enables you to improve your decision making by navigating the shifting relationships among reason, analysis, emotion, and intuition – giving you the knowledge to capitalize on your psychological capital.

Denise Shull’s gem of a book is long overdue. Her book has made the ability to analyze and overcome our unconscious biases and prejudices available to everyone.”

Dr. Donald T. Wargo, Department of Economics, Temple University

Excellent book for understanding the behavior of markets. I approached the book with a good bit of skepticism. As I delved into it, I was most pleased with the way Denise weaved fictional characters into the presentation of her material. This has given me a more complete understanding of how I interpret information coming from the market and what emotions drive me to enter, exit or stand aside.”
