Andrew Aziz is the author of How to Day Trade for a Living (2015), a trading guide for everyone. Holder of a PhD degree in Chemical Engineering, he has worked as a research scientist before reorienting himself by focusing on Trading. He started studying the stock market in 2009 or so, and today he wants to share with us how we too can take control over our life and have success in day trading on the stock market using the right tools and showing strong motivation and perseverence.
Andrew Aziz knows the markets very well and has a special knack for methodically making what appears to be complicated to be easy to understand. This book is definitely NOT a difficult, technical, hard to understand, complicated and complex guide to the stock market. It’s concise and practical. It’s written for everyone by an experienced teacher with a passion to help others take control back over their lives.
Andrew worked hard to earn a PhD degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of British Columbia, in Canada. But like many others, despite his high-level expertise in the field, one day he was the victim of a faltering economy.
With the same drive and determination that led to his success at university and with industry, Andrew started studying the stock market with this question in mind: How can someone sitting at home, in front of their computer, beat Wall Street at its own game?
This latest edition of How to Day Trade for a Living sets out in easy to understand language all that you will need to know to launch yourself into day trading on the stock market.
If you persevere, you too can be a successful day trader.
Very few careers can offer you the freedom, flexibility and income that day trading does. As a day trader, you can live and work anywhere in the world. You can decide when to work and when not to work. You only answer to yourself. That is the life of the successful day trader. Many people aspire to it, but very few succeed.
In the book, I describe the fundamentals of day trading, explain how day trading is different from other styles of trading and investment, and elaborate on important trading strategies that many traders use every day. I’ve kept the book short so you can actually finish reading it and not get bored by the middle.
For beginner traders, this book gives you an understanding of where to start, how to start, what to expect from day trading, and how to develop your strategy. Simply reading this book, however, will not make you a profitable trader. Profit in trading does not come with reading a book or two or browsing online. It comes with practice, the right tools and software and appropriate ongoing education.
Intermediate traders may benefit from the book’s extensive overview of some of the classic strategies that the majority of retail traders regularly use with proven success. If you think you are beyond the stage of a novice trader, then you may want to jump ahead and start reading from Chapter 7 for an overview of the most important day trading strategies:
Day trading is not gambling or a hobby. You must approach trading very, very seriously. As such, I wake up early, go for a run, take a shower, get dressed, eat breakfast, and fire up my trading station before the markets open in New York. I am awake. I am alert. I am motivated when I sit down and start working on the list of stocks I will watch that day. This morning routine has tremendously helped my mental preparation for coming into the market. Whatever your routine is, starting the morning in a similar fashion will pay invaluable dividends.
Day trading is not gambling. It’s not an online poker game. To be successful at day trading you need the right tools and you need to be motivated, to work hard, and to persevere.
