Online Stock Trading for a Living
"I have read several books on
stock trading online, and some of them have been
very helpful. But I cannot say that any of the
other books actually improved my online trading
results. Trading books tend to be written by
people who act as advisors, or observers, of the
market. These people make their living observing
the market in a detached fashion.
By contrast, Tony Oz is a
professional trader. He knows what it is like to
face the market day in and day out, and has
proven that he can take money out of the market
on a regular basis. What makes this book
invaluable is the actual stock trading setups
and the specificity with which they are
described. Oz walks the reader through his
setups, providing precise entry points and
numerous examples. These setups provide
profitable opportunities in the market day in
and day out. I have not found another book that
is so clear about its trading setups, or where
the setups have been so consistently successful.
I can say without question that this book is
worth every penny."

Hi everyone, I'd like to
thank you for visiting my home page, and I hope that you'll be able
to learn a few valuable things that will help you with your personal
stock trading and stock
want to take this opportunity and tell you a
little bit about myself. I placed my very first stock trade in
1986 with the HOPE that I could make some money in the stock market.
And since that day, I have made plenty of mistakes, and I have paid
"big money" to learn some very painful lessons. I knew, however,
that success in stock trading could be reached if I learned from my mistakes.
Twenty years ago, I was the
guy who wanted to become a stock
trader one day. I would
call my stock broker with a shaky and very
nervous voice trying to place orders or check on the performance of
my stock holdings.
now, that I made my stock trading
decisions based on
a couple of factors: hope and dreams. As the
years passed by, this "not-so-young-anymore"
stock trader has started to mature, and
as I continued to learn sound stock
market trading techniques from all the "bad"
trades I have executed, hope
and dreams were replaced by knowledge and experience!
Fast forward 12 years
and in January of 1998, I decided to enter the Classic Hedge Hog
Stock Trading Contest to test the different stock trading systems and
stock market scans I developed. I thought that a contest would
be the perfect environment to test my strategies. Because no
day trading was allowed, and all buy and sell were market-on-close
orders, it made participating in the contests an easy task, even for
an active trader such as myself.
the following five months, I competed in five contests.
Amazingly enough, I won first place three times, third place once, and I
finished in fifth place in another one. There were about 2300
contestants in each of the contests.
The impressive results
of the stock trading contests and the posting of my email address in the "hall of
fame," motivated hundreds of stock traders, who wanted to know how I did
it, to contact me. Since they all knew that my worst
performance was a fifth place finish, I was receiving more and more
emails every day.
of the reasons that I was getting so much
interest was because I was trailing and in 7th place going into the
last two days of what was the most competitive stock trading contest, in the
history of Hedge-Hog. There were at least 35 traders that
could win that one on the last two days.
As I was running my
stock market trading scans, I noticed that I was getting a lot of Sky Scraper setups that
day, so I closed all my long positions and went 100% short.
The stock market corrected big time over the next two days, and the stocks
that I was short really went down hard. At the end, I had a
four week return of 106% and I won the contest with a big lead.
The main question I got from all the emails I received was why did I
switch, and how did I know exactly when to switch from long to
short. At the time, I didn't think that it would take an
entire book to explain what seemed so natural to me, but it did.
While all the emails came pouring in, I
was also involved with Day Traders of Orange County where traders
were meeting twice a month to discuss trading strategies. From
my interactions with what would be thousands of traders at this
point of time, I saw a real need for high-quality stock trading educational
I created my stock trading educational
products mainly for one reason. I wanted to help people learn from
my OWN mistakes. When I got involved with Day Traders of Orange
County, I realized that the members were making the same mistakes
that I have made earlier in my career. Consequently, I was motivated
to share my passion for stock trading in my books.
I was really overwhelmed
by the warm welcome and success that my first book, Stock Trading
Wizard, had, and when I was challenged to write a trading diary
using the rules and guidelines from that book I accepted it. And the
result was another blockbuster book, The Stock Trader.
With over 100 REAL trades featured in detail in this book, readers
now could see what it is really like to be a professional trader.
Indeed, many industry pros felt that I have raised the bar really
high with this book, and to this day it is their absolute favorite.
In my last book,
How to Take Money from Wall Street, I tried
to tie all the knots together and answer all the questions that were
still coming in after the first two books. And in my opinion,
it is the best of all my books to start with. If you find that
you really like what you have read in this book, and you would like
to really trade the same way that I do, then recommend the four-CDs
stock trading course
as well. The CD course will put my voice behind the words you
read in my books, and it will really bring to life the way I trade
stocks for a living.
