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

Get some basics on YouTube than read this

I had a basic grasp of day trading before reading this book on stocks. I would suggest you do some basics learning on YouTube before you read this to get the most of it. They try and do pretty well at explaining things like moving averages, VWAP candlestick paterns and other things but I feel that if you didn’t have at least a basic understanding of day trading it would be tough to follow along. If you started on some videos to see things live you will thank me later.

Overall good read or listen.

Start with this book to see if trading is for you!

I listened to this book straight through the first time and was blown away, and have since gone back with a fine toothed comb. I have visited many day traders books, websites, chatrooms, and YouTube channels. I can say Andrew provides you with the most honest, down to earth, and practical look at day trading to see whether or not it is for you. No click-bait or Lamborghinis and bikinis, just straight up day trading from someone who loves to trade. The fact this book's first edition was 2015 and Andrew decided to write and publish it while he was still learning as a trader gives me utmost respect for this man. Check out Bear Bull Traders YouTube channel to see his community trade everyday. It is a beginners guide, nothing more, nothing less. I will definitely be picking up his Advanced Techniques in Day Trading. Thank you Andrew!

Great Book!

I am swing trading now but would like to transition to day trading and this book was a great one to start with. I've listened to it once and will need to write down the methodologies and go through them a few more times. I had an idea what would be needed for day trading and the author covered them with details. Would recommend it.

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.

To much of a sales pitch

The book is basically a sales pitch to join his other programs.
Content is of some value but this structure don’t work for me.

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!

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.

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.
