About the Author

Merlin Rothfeld has been actively involved in the financial markets since 1996. After receiving his degree in Business Finance, Merlin worked for a large financial planning firm in California where he applied traditional, long term investment strategies. In 1998 he began day trading his own money using a variety of DAT trading platforms.

Merlin's experiences with trading strategies, ranging from long term investing to short term, high volume trading, offer students a well-diversified perspective of the trading life. The fact that Merlin trades daily using his own unique trading strategy enhances his abilities as an Instructor. Online Trading Academy is delighted to have Merlin on staff, as students always appreciate how his market experience positively influences his teaching style.
