Matchbook hosted it’s 2nd Traders Workshop this past Monday on March 14th at St. Ermin’s Hotel in central London. As a spin off, and in response to feedback, Matchbook launched a series of smaller, more in-depth workshops that provide delegates with more advanced material.
Matchbook’s 2nd workshop focused on the psychology of trading and featured speaker Steve Ward, a Trading Performance and Psychology Coach. Ward went beyond the pages of his three published books on trading psychology and shared advanced and unpublished work. Ward also underlined key lessons through demonstrations, exercises and free flowing Q&A. In a post-event survey, one delegated commented “Steve was easy to understand and his presentation very interesting!”.
Key topics covered in the workshop:
- The 3 keys to becoming a successful sports bettor
- The high performance sports betting cycle
- Preparation – getting ready to perform
- The 5 keys to effective execution and strengthening discipline
- Developing attention, willpower and discipline
- Managing emotions
- Dealing with pressure and stress, and betting with poise
- The mind-body connection, energy and decision fatigue
- Evaluation, analysis and continual improvement
