Hedge Fund Masters: How Top Hedge Fund Traders Set Goals, Overcome Barriers, and Achieve Peak Performance by Ari Kiev

My Views

Ari Kiev is a Psychiatrist and he uses his experience in this area to help Hedge Fund traders achieve Peak Performance trading. This book is a collection of interviews with top traders alongside his Ari’s comments on how these traders should improve.

While this is a collection of interviews, this book is quite different from Jack D. Schwager’s Market Wizards. And that’s also the main reason I’m recommending this book, it gives a very different prospective from Jack and I believe it’s always good to see the same thing from a different angle.

If you’re not familiar with his work, feel free to watch his video (click link) on “Becoming a Discipline Trader”.

Description

Discover the psychological strategies that hedge fund traders use to maximize their success in Hedge Fund Masters.

Author Ari Kiev interviewed over 80 hedge fund traders, including some of the most successful hedge fund operators in the world, to illustrate the principles of success. Filled with in-depth insights and practical advice, the book explores the pressures felt by professional hedge fund traders as they manage enormous sums of their clients’ money and shows you how to maintain emotional balance, focus on targets and goals, overcome deep-seated psychological obstacles, and trade with consistency and discipline.

Since reading the book, it’s not about “Can I make money?” any more, but it’s more like “How much more can I make?”
