How the Mind Muscles Method works

1. Get answers, get clarity.

Use the Trader's Compass Assessment to get the answers you need to help you take your trading to the next level. You will establish your current state, find out which areas of your trading could use some adjustments and which are serving you well.

You are welcome to use the Assessment as many times as you want, to see how your responses change as you progress.

If you need help getting the most out of your analysis, book a complimentary session with Rich at the end of the Assessment.

Compass Trader Assessment

"The problem we have as traders is that we keep repeating behavior patterns that cause bad trading decisions. We are typically told to be 'disciplined' in order to solve the problem, but this rarely, if ever, helps."

Compass 3.0 End of Lockdown Edition


2. Build your processes

Trader's Compass takes you through a 5 Module step-by-step process to replace reactive, emotional trading with personal awareness, acceptance and new actions that support consistent execution, which in turn results in growing, consistent profits.

You will have a clear and concise plan that tells you exactly where you are going and precise steps that you need to take to get there.

Our clients come to us because they understand their decision process drives everything else. They are eager to look at the critical aspects of their success and expand their decision process and behaviors in ways that feel better and get them to their goals.

The only lasting solution is to expand your mental game - create new neural pathways that enable you to make good trading decisions.

"The temptation is always to look for an easy fix in the latest trading course or new indicator or system. It feels good to open that new toy - but this does nothing to get you on the road to consistent profits."

3. Measure what matters

As retail traders, our greatest edge lies in our ability to understand market activity and to make clear choices based on the information we are receiving.

Yet, on a day-to-day basis, our ability to see the market and to act on that information increases and decreases in ways that we are not aware of.

External and internal influences can affect our thoughts and emotions, and as a result, can have a profound impact on our decision-making process.

Through the use of Mind Metrics, you can start to reduce these variables from your trading performance by tracking and eliminating hidden elements that have a negative impact on your trading.

What Mind Muscles students say

Rich, I just want to let you know that I am blown away with your materials in the Compass course. And, I know that this is only the tip of the iceberg. I've started the SET Awareness form yesterday and it stopped me from taking an impulsive trade this morning. What an amazing tool!!! I just want to pass this on to you...I know it's still early in the stage of this life-long journey. But, boy, this is exciting."

I took the class to improve my trading only, but it ended up changing my whole life! So......I feel like a billion bucks... I wanna go to San Francisco and hug Rich but I am afraid I might squeeze him too much and hurt the poor man :^) Words alone cannot express how much better I feel. I am so grateful I can’t even express it!!?"

I have been doing what your course says to do and it resulted in Thursday being the first significantly profitable day I've had In almost 2 months. I still had a mess up day today, but there was still progress in the right areas. I can't put into words how much your help means to me and how much I value the opportunity you have given me. It truly means more than the world to me. Your anchoring video Is awesome.."

Former Pacific Exchange options trader

“When I entered the world of floor trading at the Pacific Exchange, I wanted to join the most sophisticated trading group on the options exchange. Rich Friesen's group met the bill. I learned how to picture options value and positions with his proprietary Magic Carpet™ trading model. It gave me the tools to become not only a leading trader in our group, but one of the most consistently profitable traders on the entire options floor."

When I began trading for Rich using his system, I was profitable for the first thirty days straight. That was a big boost both to my trading confidence and to my account. I have to say that his "Magic Carpet" visual is the best model I have seen for reducing risk and generating profits.

About Richard Friesen


"I traded for 20 years in the pit at the Chicago Board of Trade, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and the Pacific Exchange.

When I started my own firm I hired traders to trade with my money.

They made Trade Management, LLC one of the few consistently profitable firms on the Pacific Exchange options floor because I trained out their losing behaviors and replaced them with consistently winning ones.

Now you can get this same training online in my trading courses at the Mind Muscles Academy."
