Dear Trading Friends,
I have just learned that a great hero of the trading industry Mark Douglas one of the truly original and great trading educators has passed away at the age of 67.
He passed away peacefully in his home in Arizona.
Those of you who know me realize how much stress I have put on reading Mark’s books over the last 15 years. His writings are simply the absolute best wisdom in my view on what I call “Traders Mindset”.
His beloved wife Paula has been partnering with Mark in this field since 1999 and will continue the work through her site:
Paula Webb .com
I have been in touch with Paula and she said there is a lot of new resource material that is being released which is very exciting news for us traders.
I met Mark back in the late 1980’s when I flew to Chicago to attend one of his private trainings. It was a very inspirational meeting and later Paula took me on a tour of the Chicago exchange while Mark did some private coaching.
In 2004 Mark joined with me to present at a 2 day seminar in Boca Raton Florida I had organized at the Marriot hotel. We had over 320 traders attend from around the globe including over a dozen floor traders and numerous brokers as well.
Mark’s presentation was really excellent and the traders there were really impressed. Since that time I have continued to exclusively recommend Mark’s “trading mindset” books and now Paula’s too. Paula was a trader on the Chicago exchange and you can contact her to hear some of her experiences and for coaching services.
Below are some images of Mark Douglas and the books I recommend by him and now Paula. You can see Paula on the exchange floor on the book on the bottom.
We love you Mark and are grateful for your super excellent and literally career saving insight into the trading mindset, psychology and price movement. And for just being a truly wonderful person.
