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

Not bad not great!

The book is good for beginners and provides basic knowledge but not great if you wanna start day trading after reading the book. You can get this basic knowledge from other free sources such as Youtube. Don't waste your money buying this book

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.

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!

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.

Great for the beginner

What made the experience of listening to How to Day Trade for a Living the most enjoyable?

Topics were easy to understand and very clear on the recommended methods.

Who was your favorite character and why?

?

What about Kevin Foley’s performance did you like?

Did not drone on and kept my interest. I have never been a good reader but I retain a lot from listening and his inflection and delivery was very good.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not that kind of book

Any additional comments?

Like the way the book was written, and the concepts were very well explained. I wanted to get the concepts down, so I ordered the book, listened to the audio again, and highlighted the pages I thought were important so I could reference back to them quickly. Which I have done and am still doing as I practice.

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

What is appealing about this book apart from its intriguing Author, Andrew Aziz who by the way is self taught in the Day Trading who learned and harnessed his skills over time to be highly successful so he can relate to the beginner as he was once there trying to grasp the steep learning curve. It is all presented in plain english making it easy to understand. This is an excellent starting point for anyone looking to grasp the basic understand the world of day trading. Highly recommend

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.

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.
