Alexander Elder, M.D., is a professional trader and a teacher of traders. He is the author of 10 books, including Trading for a Living and the Study Guide for Trading for a Living, considered modern classics among traders.
Dr. Elder was born in Leningrad and grew up in Estonia, where he entered medical school at the age of 16. At 23, while working as a ship’s doctor, he jumped a Soviet ship in Africa and received political asylum in the United States. He worked as a psychiatrist in New York City and taught at Columbia University. His experience as a psychiatrist provided him with unique insight into the psychology of trading. Dr. Elder’s books, articles, and reviews have established him as one of today’s leading experts on trading. Many of his own trades are featured in this book.
Dr. Elder is the originator of Traders’ Camps—week-long classes for traders. He is also the founder of the Spike group, whose members are professional and semi-professional traders. They share their best stock picks each week in competition for prizes among themselves. Dr. Elder continues to trade, conducts webinars for traders, and is a sought-after speaker at conferences.
