The Trading Composure Pack

Course description

Now, I know what you might have said to yourself as you read the title of this course…

“That sounds too good to be true, but let’s check it out anyways…”

Just know this: Yes, trading for a living is possible! How do I know this? This is something that I do. And I also know plenty of other people who do the exact same thing.

Here’s an important thing you need to know: People have an idea of how traders who successfully “trade for a living” work and the kind of returns they make, but reality is often, very different.

For the longest time, I had a rigid idea of what trading for a living should look like and because of that I’ve been on the wrong path many (many) times, and I’ve struggled a lot before I arrived at where I am today.

So, allow me to share some important information with you and really clear up some things.
Imagine that I come to you and say, “hey, I make on average 20% return trading the U.S stock market every year.”
That’s a nice return, right? But, not impressive, by any stretch of the imagination.

On the other hand, my friend Chris makes +250% return. Now, this is what you can call impressive!

Now, imagine that both of us are offering to show you how we trade. Chances are that you’ll probably think to yourself, “Well, Chris makes more, so he must have some special knowledge that Yvan doesn’t have; he must have more experience, so I’d rather learn from him.”

But is that true?

Well, let’s look into that…

What if I told you that my equity curve is waaay less volatile than his.

Furthermore, what if I told you that I have a systematic way of trading which leads me to trade only 2 hours a day (usually less but let’s say 2 hours), and for the research and planning, a maximum of 10 minutes, at best.

That’s a total of 2 hours and 10 minutes a day and around 11 hours a week.

Chris, on the other hand, is a discretionary trader. He uses his intuition to gauge market sentiment, and he relies heavily on chart patterns and esoteric analyses. He works 50+ hours a week – his spends on average 6 to 12 hours a day in front of his screens trading or watching his trades unfold, looking for opportunities, and he spends an additional 4-5 hours a day for research and planning for the next day.

Then if Chris runs a website like I do and has to answer emails, create content for his followers, etc., we’re possibly looking at an 80 hour week for him.

For me? Well, currently I spend 2 hours a day doing those things, and I am constantly optimizing things so that I spend less time doing them. So in total, I only work around 22 hours a week. Worst case, it’s 25 hours. But we’re still very far from Chris’ 80 hours.

“Interesting… go on”

Ok. What if I told you that I lead a much happier life than Chris? Of course, this is difficult to verify because of the subjective nature of this claim, but let’s say that there are some clearly visible signs that attest to this:

✔ I lead a peaceful life; I have a clear understanding of myself and my thoughts and emotions, while Chris is an emotional mess, a walking time bomb waiting to explode at any moment just because of the sheer amount of stress he’s exposed to on a continuous basis given his trading style (discretionary trading).

✔ I have time for my family and friends. Chris? Well, he doesn’t! He can’t even spend time with his 4-year-old. And whenever he spends time with her, his mind is with the markets.

✔ I’m currently in my thirties and I look like I could be maybe in my early 20s (really), while Chris looks much older than I do even though he’s younger than me… he always carries bags under his eyes. It must be those damn losses that keep him awake at night or those long hours he spends in front of his multiple screens.

✔ Chris lives in Manhattan where life is crazy expensive. So even though he earns 5x- 10x more than me in absolute income, in relative income, I’m earning more than him since I live in a part of the world where life is cheap and good. I earn in dollars and I spend in that country’s currency which increases my quality of life.

I could go on like that…

Money has been forever the absolute measure of happiness even though individual experience points out otherwise. So, you see, we need another way to measure happiness/success. In this age, money alone just doesn’t cut it anymore.

But, as you see, there is a way to trade for a living that really makes it exceptional. And it’s not about how much money you make in absolute terms, it’s about the personal freedom; it’s about the quality of life; it’s about time, energy, health, and the emotional capital that you preserve by doing so.

“Okay, okay… I’m sold…. show me your way!”

I will show you what a proper approach to trading for a living in this course.

Here’s what you’ll learn in there:

✔ I’ll reflect back at you some realities about trading for a living, and I will show you what’s the best way to go about this journey and maximize your chances of success.

✔ I’ll show you my stress-free trading strategies and how I manage my two trading accounts with the least amount of emotional resistance as possible.

✔ Trading for a living for me is ALL about emotional preservation. Nothing else! I’ll show you a simple way to help you cultivate mental stability day after day as you run your business.

✔ I’ll show you "The dirty little secret of trading" and how I earn a reliable source of income through content creation (blog, book, course….) on the side – which allows me to weather trading drawdowns that is an inevitable part of trading. This also helps in decreasing performance anxieties and allows me to trade to the best of my abilities. I’ll show you how you too can do that. It’s not rocket science.

✔ You’ll see how much I make from my trading business (screenshots) and I’ll share with you some important money management tips that have allowed me to travel the world for 2 consecutive years while trading and running my business.

✔ I will show you how to maximize your experience of trading and make this whole thing enjoyable and effortless.

I’m sharing my business template with you...

I’ve read somewhere that about 80% of Americans dream of starting their own business. If you are part of that 80%, those ideas (and many others) that I will share with you, if applied, will start making you money right away. But as said earlier, it’s not really about the money; it’s about the personal freedom. I really believe that, because that’s what’s working for me. And I know for fact, that’s what’s working for a lot of people.

Maybe you don’t have a lot of experience in trading, maybe you do, maybe you’ve lost a ton of money, maybe you’ve made a ton of money… whatever your current situation, if you’ve been following me for a while and trust the quality of the content that I’ve been sharing with you so far, then this course is for you.

“But why are you doing this?”

Two reasons…

First, again, I run a business… I want to make a profit. But, I’m never going to sacrifice my integrity for money. Never! I don’t want to sell you a bunch of dreams like what you see online 99.99% of the time, I want to sell you REALITY. Because I’m tired of the scammers, the frauds, taking advantage of people’s credulity and selling a bunch of fluff. In this course, you’re not going to get that. You’ll see how I run my business from A to Z so that you can replicate it if you want, or you can modify some aspects of it, take it in an entirely new direction… It’s your call, really.

The 2nd reason is that is that I genuinely want to see you succeed because I know how it is to struggle. It might sound cliche but it’s true. And I want to see you improve your life, make money, and thrive as a human being.

Anything else in this course that is noteworthy?

✔ You'll get the tools that I’ve created and have used over the years to better manage my business. These, alone, are worth the price of the entire course.

✔ There are 40+ video lectures to keep you busy for at least a couple of days.

A simple day trading strategy that has allowed me to come in 2nd in an online trading competition in 2013.

And more.

I decided to seek the assistant of a course from Ivan after finding his posts on Twitter constantly hit the mark on places in my trading that seemed lacking. The structure of the course is very well laid out with the different audio, video and text modules keeping the material fresh. Ivan has a way of presenting the material in a simple easy to follow manner. The acid test was when I started to see results in my trading, the bad habits dropped of quickly (they do reappear so its a constant battle). The course wasn't long in paying for itself with that alone. I'd highly recommend the course to anyone but be warned. . . you get out what you put in!

by Patrick Hilley

I was very reluctant in the beginning to stop trading activity for 2 weeks, but I want to give it a try as I was in a very bad draw down in my account, I could not believe my self that it had made so much difference that I started looking the market in totally a different way and I am also planning to conduct a course of my own to help other traders to get benefited by this knowledge. Thank you so much for this course.


Thanks Yvan for this Valuable course. I really like the weekly strategy. Very useful.

Hi Yvan, Sincere thanks to you for enlightening me on how to trade for a living. Your trading for a living course is one of its kinds. Rarely do we come across people who are genuine to share with others their ideas and realities of trading. Your course is a testimony to your truthfulness, genuineness and kind heartedness. It has personally benefitted me in the following areas. 1. It has helped me in setting my expectations right. 2. It has helped me remove some of the misconceptions about trading for a living. 3. It has helped me to understand what I should be focussing on while trading. 4. It has helped me in taking a macro view of trading than the micro view. As we all know trading is all about psychology and you have rightly focussed more on that part of trading. You have clearly shown how to develop the right mind-set for trading. Secondly, you have also taught how to build a business around trading. You have also taught how trading methodology can be kept as simple as possible and with the help of right trading psychology; you can still go on to become a successful trader. Hope someday we will come across at one of the holiday destinations….!!!


I have attended innumerable trading courses and workshops. I have bought software and systems, had trading mentors, traded options, stocks and mini futures and was a member of so many trading groups, but none of it worked, none of that turned me into a successful trader. WHY? Very few traders are truly successful and the ones who are rarely teach. Yvan Byeajee is one of the rare ones, who trades successfully for a living and teaches. He is authentic and honestly shows you how he trades for a living and also his journey which is very similar to mine, so I can attest to it ! Your life and hence your trading career is dependent on your beliefs, your emotional state and your mental strategies. Trading is 100% psychological, including why and how you trade and which system you will follow or build. 97% of traders (only 3% of traders are consistently successful) have a hard time or categorically refuse to “believe” this. The resistance is palpable. Only you can decide whether it is worth your time to learn what beliefs you hold : which ones are supporting your trading career and which ones are not. You must be willing to self inquire. This course is an INVALUABLE TOOL to guide you on the right track, the fastest even, track to success. I highly recommend it and will be suggesting it to our students also. You are lucky to have found this course! Enjoy it and happy success in your trading!

by Marie Micallef

It's quite evident. Yvan has clearly pinpointed exactly the way a trader must trade. No bulshit. I have purchased both his courses. And this course is by far the most crucial, it is the pinnicle of what every trader should have in their pursuit towards success in trading. Yvan clearly demonstrates the importance of engagement which contrary to conventional wisdom of "over trading" Yvan justifies the importance of being able to trade as much as you can and adapt to controlling the cognitive biases that occur when we trade. This is a must buy. For any trader at any level. Thank you Yvan.

Hi Yvan, Firstly, thanks ever so much for putting together a very informative and easy to follow explained trading for a business package! I found the content fantastic with clear & precise instructions on how to implement the systems shown and run a successful trading company. The simplicity of the systematic approach in comparison to a discretionary system i was taught and heavily emotionally digested in without realising, was well and truly breathe taking and a pleasure to learn what you had to say. I was amazed at myself and my own beliefs after completing this course and now cannot wait to put to the test what you have shown me. I will certainly be back in touch via email with updates of any incremental progress i make as opposed to my discretionary side of trading. As for the techniques within building the business as a whole, this somewhat excites me on a larger scale and i look forward to creating a website for the first time and begin posting my own beginner blog posts. Thanks again Yvan, truly a breath of fresh air. All the best Craig John

I think this is first time a Trader has given actionable ideas with proof of working. Real eye opener. Course is to the point no beating around the bush. All the ideas are presented in a simple manner and can be implemented. Highly recommended.

by Shashank Gonchigar

I want to Thank you for all you have taught me. The knowledge and wisdom you have imparted upon me from your last two courses have been a great help. I believe my success is at least in part due to your sincere support and Mentorship. Thank you YVAN.

by Kogulan Kanesanathan

This is by far the most honest trading course you would ever come across. It might not only change your whole approach towards trading, it might change you life per se! In the course, Yvan talks about his trading system and has opened up on how he makes a living via trading business. There are enormous amounts of examples which will set you on the path if you trust. He not only talks and provides strategies, he "walks the talk " as well. Thumbs up for the course, Yvan. Go for it folks.

by Saurabh Srivastav

Hello Yvan. Thanks for sharing all of your knowledge about trading for a living and beeing so honest with your readers. Excellent stuff for those who want to be really engaged with this life. Juan.

by juan gonzalez

In this course Yvan explains how he set up his trading business in a very hands on way. He shows you his own trading strategies, results and how he´s able to sustain a healthy income buy supporting his trading with additional income from books and courses, which again reduces the pressure on trading itself. I am a big fan of Yvan as he is being very transparent, honest, humble, straight to the point, and will help advise you on how to do this yourself. Yvan does everything in a simple fashion and breaks everything down step by step. There´s never any doubt on what to do, how to do it or where to go to and get it. He will explain everything to you. If you haven´t heard about this guy before, then I can thoroughly recommend you take this course. Besides this course Evan has other courses and books out that deals more with trading psychology, which is Yvan´s speciel field. The guy changed a lot of things in my trading and in my life already, you won´t find a more open "book" than this.

Yvan Byeajee

I will help you master the inner game of trading

My name is Yvan Byeajee; I am a trader with several years of experience in anything pertaining to meditation and present moment awareness. Meditation/ Mindfulness has provoked some deep transformational changes in me and the way I trade, and in my work, I aspire to help traders go through that same process of transformation.

The implications of such profound mental changes are enormous for us traders. When equanimity, balance, wise discernment, among other wholesome mental characteristics become the new norm of the mind, what ensues is a way of trading that is effortless, enjoyable, and above all profitable!

I run Trading Composure, a website that centers around trading psychology and I am the author of the following amazon best sellers:

The Essence Of Trading Psychology In One Skill;

Zero To Hero: How I went from being a losing trader to a consistently profitable one,

Paradigm Shift: How to cultivate equanimity in the face of market uncertainty.

I have written for, or been covered by Newtraderu, Zentrader.ca, Tradeciety, Tradingstory.com, Bizcommunity, Traders Mag, Business Magazine, etc..You can also read a little bit about me in Dr. Brett Steenbarger’s book, Trading Psychology 2.0.
