There is a ton of stuff in this area and, time allowing, I'll try to populate with a good selection, most of which is worth a critical read IMO.
Currently I am reading about psycho-physiology. How the body and mind interact to emotion, thoughts, mood etc. I have an HRV monitor which measures a few features of heart beat (not just heart rate) and that is fascinating to watch in real-time as I consider trades. take trades, etc. I'm just playing with it really but have already found a few patterns. I hacked one together using an Arduino (open source embedded electronics) and a heart sensor and then feed the raw data into Excel with few rudimentary macros. It is far from scientific but I think is accurate enough as a first step. Whole set-up cost about 50.00GBP.
I'm also looking into intuition as I have been rule governed for set-ups (up to now) but increasingly wanting to just trade from the gut. Having read up on it I have found the confidence to incorporate intuitive entries within trading guidelines (rather than rules) and that has removed a great deal of conflict - so far.
The field of emotion regulation is relevant to trading too and I have enjoyed learning about some of these ideas. There is a researcher James Gross who has driven a lot of work in this area. I have a few papers of his which I'll post to the other thread soon.
Thanks for stopping by.
