Investing & Day Trading Education:  Day Trading Academy

About Marcello: Emini Day Trader

My favorite cheetahs in Zambia

I’m amazed that it has been almost 10 years since I started learning how to day trading.  When I was younger I was always selling something; mixtape CD’s when CD burning software first came out, when financial calculators first flooded the market I was the man boy to see if you needed one, I even sold pastries as breakfast in high school when I wasn’t supposed to. 

Even though it was illegal, I would have a line as both students and teachers would want to buy their breakfast in the morning.    Everything was sold at one dollar a pastry and even the principal and teachers would line up for breakfast.

I wasn’t into the 9-5, I was more interested in working for my definition of success, by the age of 16 I was already working for jobs.  It wasn’t about being a millionaire or owning a Ferrari, it wasn’t about having the nice issues or watch. It was about freedom.

The freedom to live the life that I wanted to live

I moved to Italy and since I had to keep my promise to my mother to finish university, I enrolled in a school in Sicily to finish my degree.  Things got complicated and I had to come back to the states where I began my day trading journey.  I took out $25,000 in student loans and did what everyone would do, I did a Google search for day trading software and bought the first program I found.

I lost the $25,000 in 1 month.  I was a student, in college, working for $8 an hour.

I was working full time, going to school full time, and trying to learn how to day trade.  I pulled 2 to 3 all nighters a week to study charts and popped NyQuils like Skittles to sleep and wake up for exams.  It was hard, exhausting, and nearly impossible.  But it didn’t matter.  I had one goal in mind and that was my freedom.


I wanted to get into day trading because it would give me the freedom to work whenever and more importantly, where ever I wanted.  Nearly ten years  later I now consider myself a Wandering Day Trader (WanderingTrader) as I day trade and travel around the world.  I run a travel blog called where I share how I balance day trading and traveling at the same time.

My very first Day Trading Office

I’ve started The Day Trading Academy to help others people reach their dreams and have a more in depth view of day trading.  I’ve seen a lot of bad things in this industry and most people that want to start day trading are taken for quite a ride, a ride that’s worth tens of thousands of dollars.  I know I started when I was in college and I really couldn’t afford to start day trading.  This new venture is meant to help everyone that wants to get started.

If you want to learn send me a message via my contact page, its never too late to get started.
