There are many cognitive biases that can influence a trader's decision-making and result in a gap between knowledge and performance. The main objective of this course is to gain self-awareness of your weaknesses and strengths to bridge this performance gap.

Learning objectives

After successfully completing this course module, you should be able to:
  • - explain how cognitive biases may influence your trading decisions,
  • - evaluate your own strengths and weaknesses related to your trading,
  • - apply methods to recognize your cognitive biases and mitigate and/or eliminate them,
  • - understand how emotions may impact your trading decisions,
  • - differentiate between temporary and permanent stress reactions,
  • - use regulation techniques to control emotions and remove unfavorable emotions from your everyday trading.

CFTC Rule 4.41

Hypothetical or simulated performance results have certain limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, because the trades have not actually been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs, in general, are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown. Testimonials appearing may not be representative of other clients or customers and are not a guarantee of future performance or success.

Risk disclaimer

Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. This is neither a solicitation nor an offer to buy or sell futures, options or forex. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
