Chicago Chapter Book Club / Holiday Cheer Meeting @ Ceres Cafe - Lobby Level
Dec 11 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

The CMT Chicago Chapter invites you to our Holiday Cheer / Book Club event on Tuesday December 11, 2018.

For the Chapter’s fourth book club meeting of 2018, we will be discussing Market Mind Games by Denise Shull.


Market Mind Games

When it comes to investing, we’re usually taught to “conquer” our emotions. Denise Shull sees it in reverse: We need to use our emotions.

Combining her expertise in neuroscience with her extensive trading experience, Shull seeks to help you improve your decision making by navigating the shifting relationships among reason, analysis, emotion, and intuition. This is your “psychological capital”—and it’s the key to making decisions calmly and rationally during the heat of trading.

Market Mind Games explains the basics of neuroscience in language you understand, which is the first tool you need to manage the emotional ups and downs of the trading. It then provides you with a rock-solid trading system designed to take full advantage of your emotional assets.

Come join us for some Holiday Cheer and an interesting discussion, even if you didn’t read the book.
Heavy appetizers and a Cup of Cheer will be served.  Please register!
