About the Author

Less than one year before it hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics and Paralympics, Andrew Aziz moved to Vancouver, Canada, rolled up his sleeves, worked hard, earned a PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of British Columbia, and went to work as a research scientist. Like so many others, as the economy faltered, Andrew heard those dreaded words, "you're no longer needed". Now what? With the same drive and determination that led to his success at university and with industry, Andrew started studying the stock market. How can someone sitting at home, in front of their computer, beat Wall Street at its own game? In How to Day Trade for a Living, Andrew shares how you too can take control over your life and have success in day trading on the stock market. You need the right tools and you need to be motivated, to work hard, and to persevere, but, if you do, you too can be a successful day trader. Andrew knows the markets, underlined, and has a special knack for methodically making what appears to be complicated to be easy to understand. This latest edition of his book sets out in easy to understand language all that you will need to know to launch yourself into day trading on the stock market. This book is definitely NOT a difficult, technical, hard to understand, complicated and complex guide to the stock market. It's concise. It's practical. It's written for everyone by a gifted teacher with a passion to help others take control back over their lives. And, as a purchaser of this book, you will also receive at no cost and with no obligation a membership in Andrew's community of day traders at www.vancouver-traders.com. You can monitor Andrew's screen in real time, watch Andrew trade the strategies explained in his book, and ask questions of Andrew and other traders in their private chat room.

Reviewed in the United States on 12 June 2018
First after reading this book some people love it and some think it simple. Yes, it can be both. I found the book so simple that I was compelled to buy time in his chat room. My thought was, maybe it is just that simple or it could be something I’m missing and it’s actually complex. After a few sessions in the chat room watching someone monitor the market and listen to why buying and selling decisions are made, one way or the other, I decided to purchase three months time in a trading simulator exactly like the one used in the chatroom and connected with a feed just like the exchange floor. After 4 weeks of daily trading I became disciplined enough to start making smart trades and to get out of a trade properly.

It’s a business. You are buying and selling a product. Reading this book, putting in training time and practicing your training is no different than any other profession. It’s all about knowing when to get in, when to stay, how long to stay and when to get out. We all know that a lot of business startup’s fail because they didn’t do their research on location and product offered. This is your opportunity to do the research on a specific type of day trading. I am opening my brokerage account and feel confident that I can make money doing this. When I say make money I’m talking 50K range not millions per year.

And for those that don’t like this book because it seems “negative” that’s because it is compared to other books that put a nice pair of rose colored glasses on your face and tell you anyone can do this and how you will make millions. This book, the morning chat room, the simulator are all real world and a lot of potential traders lose money because they don’t put in the time before they put in their money. Be smart and learn to do it properly first….or you could just send me your money and save yourself some grief.

This is what I consider to be a successful trade. I did my research in the morning before the market opened, this was one of my selected stocks for the day, spent time in the chatroom, we discussed trade possibility for the day, a list was compiled and based on all that information I shorted this stock for a quick $500 then got out for the day.
