Publisher's Summary

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 audiobook, 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 audiobook short so you can actually finish listening to it, and not get bored by the middle. 

For beginner traders, this audiobook gives you an understanding of where to start, how to start, what to expect from day trading, and how to develop your strategy. Simply listening to this audiobook, however, will not make you a profitable trader. Profit in trading does not come with listening to an audiobook or two, or browsing online. It comes with practice, the right tools, software, and appropriate ongoing education. 

Intermediate traders may benefit from the audiobook'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 listening to Chapter 7 for an overview of the most important day trading strategies: 

ABCD Pattern Trading Bull Flag Momentum Trading Top Reversal Trading Bottom Reversal Trading Moving Average Trend Trading VWAP Trading Support and Resistance Trading 

For each strategy, I explain: 

How to find the Stock in Play for trade What indicators I am using on my charts When I enter the trade When I exit the trade (profit taking) What is my stop loss

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Its a sales pitch

He gives some advice. Cool. But the book is designed to get you to join his online community. This is some good elusive market strategy on his part.

The other comments you see on this audiobook look artificial. I think they are people who are already a part of his website trying to boast the book to a higher level than it actually is, which is just a way to market his website.

Charlatan

This writer gives you a bare bones how to with little evidence backing up his claims and constant advertisements for his additional services costing well over $1000, the book is an advertisement, plain and simple.

More BS from a trading “guru”

Just because a guy has a phd in chemical science doesn’t mean he’s more trustworthy. This book is just hours of selling you his website’s chat room, training program, and a subscription to his affiliate’s software, trade ideas (the most useless software ever).

So if you think you’re going to walk up to the market a total novice and make (and keep) money day trading, you have your head in a place where you can see what you’ve been eating recently.

This guy and others just wrangle up pathetic simps like you to convince you to throw you money at whatever they say, while not definitively saying it. Imagine you and ten thousand others are asking this guy what to invest in or what to trade. The capacity for abuse is there and, among these types of trading charlatans, almost always utilized. Think of it as being a donor to the trading guru charity. You pay them to learn, to talk to them, to talk to your peers, and then you buy the stocks they tell you to buy, and sub to the software and other things because they are packaging up your dreams and selling them right back to you.

Do yourself a favor: drop all of these stupid books. You’re in the wrong place for a trading education. The only place where you’ll get an impartial and legitimate understanding of the capital markets is through a college program in investment finance.

No? Fine. We need guys like you to buy at the apex, anyways. Ciao.

Save youself a headache. Start here!!!

So, I started trading on my own about 3 years ago. I was like a bull in a china shop. Didn't make a difference what I was trading or how I was trading it. I was here to re-invent the wheel. Buy, sell, buy, sell, watch a Youtube video and do it all over again. It shouldn't be surprising that I haven't been very profitable over that time. Then I came across this book. Honestly, I'm not a reader. I live by the motto that men need no instruction manual. But, I had to admit that I was going in circles. After reading some reviews, I decided that this may be the place to find some fundamentals I've been missing. I have to say, I was not disappointed. This book has forever changed the way I approach trading for a living. I highly encourage everyone to check it out before you get burnt out just spinning your wheels on your own.

A highly practical handbook for Day Trading

This book is a highly practical "textbook/handbook" for day trading. The author has a unique ability to explain complex concepts in a way that a total newbie can understand.

What I found to be exceptionally helpful is his "holistic approach" to day trading as an occupation. While this books is full of specific, practical material to hone your trading skills it also contains a wealth of information on the lifestyle and psychology of trading. This makes "How to Day Trade for a Living" indispensable for anyone looking to get into this vocation.

Unlike the typical "get rich quick" YouTube marketers, Andrew covers at length the "unsexy" aspects of trading and he does that very early in the book.

Like other reviewers I was a little turned off by the pitch to join Bear Bull Traders online community. While it is something I'm open to in the future I'm yet to join. Having read other trading psychology books I realize that a good community can aid one's resilience and significantly increase your chances of success.

What really distinguishes Andrew Aziz from others in this crowded day trading space is his ability to teach. I've recommended this book to friends and I'm sure you'll find it to be very helpful in your day trading journey. Good luck!

Where’s the PDF?

This is a great book overall. It’s perfect for beginners and I personally think that his website is helpful as well, despite it being a plug.

What bothers me and needs to be fixed is that the book mentions the PDF file many times, but it’s not available. I called audible support and they didn’t find it either. It would be really helpful to have because a lot of what he discusses you need to see for yourself- charts and setups etc- especially for a beginner.

Please fix this!

This is a great beginner book for learning how to day trade.

The wealth of knowledge you gain from this simple $11 investment will pay off more than you will ever imagine. I purchased the audiobook and paperback versions for reference.

Excellent introduction to a Day trading Career

Andrew's approach to daytrading as a career is explained extremely well in this book. I selected to listen while driving as part of my education into trading however initially it became clear I needed supporting visuals to view alongside the audio book (which you can download for free from www.bearbulltrading.com). I continued the book from the office with the downloads and found Andrews approach of explaining 'risk management' and developing your own 'trading strategies' very logical and clear. I've always hesititaed from putting my money into trading but this book explains very clearly, that if you approach it as a professional career, take the correct training, join supportive communities, practice your risk management and trading strategies and only begin when you've practised in live simulators then it is indeed not as daunting as first thought. Highly recommended

The Rock to Build Your House On

I found Andrew's book purely by chance (as an audiobook at first) and I could not be happier about it. It encouraged me to go further into the world of trading, and also to really examine myself and my own behavioural patterns.
The book itself is very easy to read and understand. I have read a lot of books about trading over the last couple of years and so many of them are filled with theories, strategies, patterns and jargon that the beginner will not know and that the authors just assume you know already. If you are the quintessential laymen; the noobie; the rookie, then this book will help you immensely. And so will the follow-up. They have so much great information in them. I recommend this book to people all the time and those who end up reading it, love it. This book will give you a solid foundation to build on, trust me - Andrew goes through everything from the kit and equipment required, the costs involved, the risks involved, the basic strategies, and most importantly, the psychological aspect of trading.

Great book!

Not only does his book give beginners everything they need, but I also think it would be a valuable resource for more experienced traders. I bought the paperback too and can see myself referring to it indefinitely. It has all the methods and practices you will need to succeed and has enabled me to map out the journey I will be taking. Many thanks to the author.

Simple Explanations

This book was good for a beginner (like me) as it gives good breakdowns of the concepts of day trading. I think I will need to listen to it again with a pen and paper handy to jot down key points and things to remember, or I may even purchase the hard copy as some parts would be better reading than listening.

This book is my 'great teacher'

This book has the best story line about day trading. It covers the whole thing you need to know especially for beginners and it can guides you right away in terms of where to start, build up your trading confidences and most importantly, it stresses about how important to keep your 'head down' the whole time and be humble and yet pumped up. As I have said, this book has brought me to a position where I can be positive about every stages of learning and keep on learning. I am in the midst of familiarising the DAS platform (building my own layout) and I wanna thank Andrew and his book for bringing me this far. I don't think I would be here if it wasn't because of your BRILLIANT work (the book).
If you're looking for a great start, I'm sure if you pick up this book and read it, you'll come out as a different you, the confident and ready to dig deep. Read as many times as you can to not missed out anything. Every word and sentences in this book are as important as your career.
