Mark Melnick has been a professional day and swing trader since 1999, when he was a 19-year old college student at St. John’s University.
Mark is the author of the classic trading book Scalping for a Living, and has trained thousands of traders in the art and science of exploiting volatility for profit. Mark was initially lured in by the promise of financial independence during the dot-com boom.
However, he achieved sub-par results until he discovered the most important element in trading success: the ability to adapt to changing market conditions.
In his quest for trading consistency, Mark developed mastery of technical and fundamental analysis, algorithmic trading, market psychology, and real-time news breakdowns.
He has deep experience with equities, options, ETF's, and currencies, and enjoys teaching traders his unique brand of news-driven active trading.
