Jacket Text

Take a bite out of the markets with the Naked Trader in his 100% all-new book about TRADING PSYCHOLOGY!

This book is for anyone who really wants to consistently make money trading shares.

Trading and investing can be tough – most fail. The human mind is to blame. It’s prone to emotion, cluttered with distractions like Twitter and social media, easily trapped by scams. But it’s possible to make money in the markets – and to do so reliably.

Robbie Burns, aka The Naked Trader, has been trading successfully from his home for 15 years – making over £2m tax-free (while eating a lot of toast and watching Game of Thrones). He’s also met and helped thousands of fellow traders at his seminars, seen every possible trading meltdown, and knows exactly what can go wrong – but also how to put it right.

In Trade Like a Shark, Robbie uses his unique firsthand experience and the real-life stories traders have shared with him to expose exactly how the human mind can play havoc with your trading. At the same time he reveals his tried-and-tested methods for overcoming it, showing how to be a shark, gobbling up money from the 'fish' who are full of fear, greed and other emotions. (And also why modelling yourself on Mr Spock can work wonders.)

If you’ve run into problems trading in the stock market – or just want to reinforce good habits – there is no better or wittier guide to the pitfalls that are out there, and some surprisingly effective ways to overcome them. It's a must-read book on trading psychology – without the jargon. Read it and take your trading to the next level now!

Professional Reviews

"Will likely be doing the rounds on commuter trains and among the City’s grad scheme applicants." CityAM

"Like The Naked Trader the writing style is light, humorous and entertaining, but the subject matter is important and serious ... It's the sort of book which I will keep on the bookshelf and enjoy dipping into on a regular basis over the next few years." Blissgull, Stockopedia

"[A] very good guide to trading psychology and could be applied to all forms of investing, not just share trading." Honest Betting Reviews

"Robbie Burns has done it again with Trade Like a Shark. Like all his other books it is written in the same unmistakable humorous and entertaining style. Experienced and amateur investors/traders alike will learn a lot from it and should always have it on standby in case they are tempted to make an emotion driven trading decision. Overall, a fin-tastic and jaw-some read!" Richard Gill, CFA, Master Investor
