Alpha Trader: The Mindset, Methodology and Mathematics of Professional Trading Kindle Edition
You get punched in the mouth.
Trading attracts intelligent, driven individuals who see enormous financial rewards and few barriers to entry. But no amount of intelligence or skill is enough if you are irrational, undisciplined, or overconfident. The best analysis is useless if you keep reaching for the self-destruct button. How do you survive and excel in this high-stakes competition? How do you become an Alpha Trader?
The answer is mindset, methodology, and math.
ALPHA TRADER is not a behavioral economics textbook and it is not a boring, theoretical deep dive into trading psychology. It’s a practical guide full of actionable information, exciting and relevant trading floor stories, concisely-distilled research, and real-life examples that explain and reinforce critical concepts. The book details the specific strategies, tactics, and habits that lead to professional trading success. It will help you become more self-aware, rational, and profitable.
This book will make you a better trader. It will help you unlock more edge and it will motivate you to become an expert in your market. It covers practical and essential topics like strategy vs. tactics, microstructure, market narrative, technical analysis, sentiment, positioning and systematic risk management. It will explain the importance of adaptation, rational thinking, behavioral bias, and risk of ruin.
Brent Donnelly, the author of ALPHA TRADER, has been a professional trader for more than two decades and has been writing about macro and markets for more than 15 years. His writing style is engaging, approachable and entertaining and he has the experience and knowledge of a veteran professional trader. His first book, The Art of Currency Trading is a bestseller and has received rave reviews.
Brent has worked as a senior FX dealer at some of the biggest banks in the world. He has traded global macro for a Connecticut hedge fund, and he has day traded equities with his own money. He loves trading and he loves writing about it.
ALPHA TRADER is for traders of every skill and experience level. Veterans and rookies alike will benefit as the book digs into topics like self-awareness, discipline, endurance, and grit. Learn the common traits of winning traders, the myriad sources of trader kryptonite, how to improve your decision-making, and how smart people do stupid things, all the time.
Professional trading is a lifelong journey of self-improvement, struggle, adaptation, and success. This book will help you level up on that journey.
Be rational and self-aware.
Learn, adapt, and grow.
Unleash the Alpha.
I couldn't put this book down! Brent has done an amazing job capturing the challenges that traders face on a daily basis and how best to navigate today's markets.
It is an essential read for anyone who is interested in managing money and the behavioral psychology behind those who "make the market!" Brent shows himself to be as skillful an author as he has been one of the leading players in global foreign exchange! Well done!

Alpha Trader is one of the most intuitive books about applied trading psychology and rational behavior. It is a masterpiece that puts you in control of your trading.
- Saed Abukarsh, partner at Ark Capital Management (Dubai)
Brent is a smart, balanced and hyper-pragmatic trader. I have known and worked with him for years, and his constant search for new paradigms is what sets him apart. ALPHA TRADER is a very, very valuable book which may save young (and old) traders from significant emotional (and monetary) pain.
- Jens Nordvig, world-renowned currency strategist and founder of Exante Data
Brent's book is an honest assessment of what is required to be successful in the markets. Successful traders have a process that is not canned or rigid... Because markets are not.
If you are serious about making it as a full-time trader, ALPHA TRADER is the book you need to read. It's an honest take on what you will need to do and expect to make it like a pro.
