Andrew’s Interview with DESIRE TO TRADE PODCAST


Less than one year before it hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics and Paralympics, I moved to Vancouver, Canada, rolled up my 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, I heard those dreaded words, “you’re no longer needed”. Now what?

The above letter of Termination of Employment changed my life in many different ways. I still have it hanging on the wall in front of my desk. I was proud of my achievements after earning a PhD, but I soon learned the harsh reality of life: “The world does not owe me a living.” I said to myself:

“Am I going to work for someone else again, for years, just to hear that I am no longer needed?”

With a new drive and determination I began studying the stock market.

“How can I be sitting at home, in front of my computer, and beat Wall Street at its own game?”

I learned it the hard way. But you do not have to. That is why I wrote my book and started this community. In my book, How to Day Trade for a Living, I share 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.

I tried to methodically explain the market and make what appears to be complicated to be easy to understand. The latest edition of my 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. My 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 because I have a passion to help others take control back over their lives too.

I invite all new and developing traders to join my community of traders. You can monitor my screen in real time, watch me trade the strategies explained in my book, and ask questions of me and the other traders in the chatroom.
