Currently I'm using \newcommand{\ps}{\textbf{\psi}} but this bolds everything after $\ps$. What do I do to get the desired result of inserting a bold $\psi$ when I use $\ps$ ?

Thanks

    You code is not giving bold \psi for me. This is how to get a bold symbol: \newcommand{\ps}{\ensuremath{\pmb{\psi}}} where the \pmb command needs \usepackage{amsmath}. Read this question for how to get bold math symbols: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/595/… – jak123 Oct 18 '15 at 5:21

For making math symbols bold, it is better to use bm package.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{bm}
\newcommand*{\ps}{\bm{\psi}}
\begin{document}
  \[\alpha \ps \psi \beta\]
  $\ps$ is some bold symbol inlike $\psi$.
\end{document}
