Playing the cynic...

I know crazy,

Has your trading performance changed over the "training" period or are you just getting good at video games?

Definitely the $64M question, all I can say for sure is that I feel and act a lot 'sharper', make less dumb mistakes and am much quicker to size up a situation, both background context and trigger pulls.

However, I would say the main block for me up until now has been the emotional/impulsive rubbish that has to be dealt with en-route, before any major trading performance threshold can be crossed, and that has been happening in parallel so it is of course hard to measure.

What I have noticed is 'surprise' improvements that seem to come along when it doesn't feel like anything is really going on, this suggests to me that stuff is being consolidated in deeper or more useful ways that are not just game specific.

I'll use the journal area to update more trading specific reviews as we go but I am very happy that I was introduced to Lumosity and have given it time - and I think it's important to do it at a measured pace as they recommend, seems like that is what helps it 'stick' deeper.

I've been doing the lumosity training for a couple years now and I'm happy enough with the results to keep up a subscription, I've even bought subs for some of my relatives. I was playing online poker professionally when it came out and always looking for ways to increase my edge so I got into it right away. I noticed fairly soon that I was able to remember peoples names better, so that was all I needed to see it was working, and I've been going ever since. I've actually been slacking lately, probably only playing once or twice a week, as I've been spending most of my time devouring every bit of info on trading I can find, but reading this has reminded me that it needs to be a part of my daily routine again.

Great thread - I'm going to try this !

I bought a couple meditation apps for my iPad but I would love to work on more than just anxiety management and stress reducers.

Great results and interesting observations, I found the face memory one of the biggest changes as well.
