My name is Darren Miller and I developed Psychtrader over a decade ago to help people find their place in the financial markets. I created the Market Awareness Profile (MAP) after seeing hundreds of people plop down thousands of dollars to learn how to trade and fail. The need for the MAP became apparent as these budding traders came to the stark realization that they were trading the wrong market, using the wrong time frame, unable to control their emotions, etc. You can read more about the MAP here.
In addition to the MAP, I’ve developed a unique approach that combines cognitive psychology, psychometrics and brain training. The idea is to help those that have found success in the markets but are looking to increase their performance. I’ve worked with individual traders, proprietary trading firms and hedge funds. You can read more about the services I offer by clicking here.
I studied psychology and counseling at Texas A&M University in Commerce, Texas where I earned my Bachelors and Masters Degrees. I furthered my studies by attending Kent State University in Kent, Ohio where I received my Ph.D. While in graduate school I found myself focused on the psychology of use. In other words, I would help others by focusing on what they were doing with what they had. As an example, ask yourself these questions:
- Trading but losing money. Profitable but not enough to make a living. Ready to take my trading to the next level.
- I want to be independently wealthy. I want to make $1,000.00 a day. I would like to know which market to trade.
- Trading a certain strategy. Focusing on a certain sector. Spinning my wheels. Reading about & researching the markets.
Through the use of psychometrics I am able to better understand you and your trading style. With this knowledge I can work with you as your coach to help you “turn the corner” to take your trading to the next level. Using cognitive psychology, along with brain training, we work together to create the ideal trading plan for your success. The markets are not as easy to make a living in as some would have you believe; I’ve seen this first-hand.
In my own market participation I’m a premium seller in the broad based indices. You can read more about my strategy in The StockTwits Edge book. I appreciate you stopping by and look forward to working with you. If I can answer any questions you have please feel free to contact me.
