Andrew Aziz is a highly successful Canadian trader and a top-selling author.
Before trading, he gained a PhD at the University of British Columbia in chemical engineering and worked for a while in the Cleantech sector. It was only after losing his job that he turned to day trading.
It was a good move. From the start, he was making on average $2,000 a day ($730,000 a year), but that was just the beginning. Today he is a multi-millionaire and has invested millions of dollars in a range of projects.
In 2020 Aziz co-founded Peak Capital Trading in Vancouver, British Columbia, where he currently has the CEO role. The company’s mission is to become the leading firm for trading US stock market equities. It trains and monitors top trading candidates and finances them up to $1 million with an 85% share of the profits.
He also founded Bear Bull Traders in 2016, a global community of traders with common goals – getting very rich. The organisation provides its members with access to technology, experienced mentors, psychologies, ongoing education, webinars and regular meetings. He is also a member of the Forbes Business Council.
Andrew Aziz is a prolific writer and has authored and co-authored six books on various trading aspects, all of which have received excellent reviews. Many have been published in multiple languages, including English, Chinese, French, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Vietnamese. Here are his leading publications.
