Howell, Rande

Rande is the owner and founder of Traders State of Mind. He is a performance coach and licensed therapist. His work focuses on using emotions to build an effective mind for the management of uncertainty. Rande’s work is grounded in Emotional Intelligence, Mindfulness, and developing latent potential in traders. He teaches traders how to harness emotions to achieve the performance edge so they can effectively control the mind that is brought into the moment of managing uncertainty, rather than attempting to control the outcome. Based in the United States he travels, speaks and trains internationally for the emotional finance community. His publications have appeared in many venues and he is the author of the book: ‘Mindful Trading: Mastering Your Emotions and the Inner Game’.

This presentation moves from the theory of Emotional Intelligence applied to trading, and teaches practical skills that can be used to manage your emotions in real-time performance. You will learn emotional regulation skills that will show you how to manage the intensity of an emotion rather than be swept away by it. You will also learn Mindfulness Skills that will allow you to have more control over the quality of the self-talk occurring in your mind as you trade. And you will learn how to access powerful tools for replacing a fearful and over-confident mind with patience, discipline, and impartiality.

Once the trader has learned the mechanics of how to trade, the gap in performance between struggling traders, adequate traders, and highly effective traders is their emotional intelligence. Highly effective traders know how to use their emotions to create a calm disciplined mind that can make confident decisions under the combined pressures of uncertainty and the need for performance. In this presentation you will learn a very different way of understanding how emotions work to create the mind and state of mind for trading.
