Friends and students are always asking me about the resources I use as a trader and as a fellow human being making her way through this adventure called life. I’ve put together a list of some of the trading tools I use and value, as well as links to a number of websites that I find – well, simply valuable. You’ll find them here in no particular order and I hope you’ll visit, enjoy and profit from them as I have.
If you’re wondering what trading platform I use, it’s optionsXpress. They’re extremely reliable, reasonably priced and offer great value for money.
I also use MetaStock. Considered by many to be the world’s most powerful technical analysis software, MetaStock provides the professional level of graphics, accuracy and customization that serious traders require. I use the MetaStock end-of-day data feed. MetaStock’s charting software provides better graphics than any internet based program, including Big Charts. The charting software provides clear, sharp images and is customizable to your charting formulas.
To be a successful trader, you have to know your own mind and be able to control your emotions. If you can’t, they’ll control you and that’s a recipe for disaster. One of the tools that has helped me to become the successful trader I am today is Norman Hallett’s TradingMind Software. This CD-based training software helps me program my subconscious mind for trading success and I believe it can help you, too. All you have to do is pop the CD into your drive and let the software do the rest. The only click you’ll have to make is choosing the mental training session you’d like to run. Then sit back and relax. Look and listen and follow the training.
