Shortly after most novice traders discover how trading works and begin to realize that they have the potential to make unlimited amounts of money in the financial markets, they start dreaming the near-impossible dream. They fantasize about buying that condo in Boca Raton for their parents or surprising their son with a brand-new car on his 16th birthday. They even begin to imagine themselves opening their own trading firm or milling about the pit of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, lobbying against other professional traders for the perfect entry into a once-in-a-lifetime trade. But then ... they watch the markets lurch in wildly unpredictable ways, lose their shirts in a few live trades, and then freeze in their tracks, wondering if they will ever be able to consistently trade in a manner that can even loosely be defined as “profitable.” To be sure, becoming a full-time, professional trader, working at a proprietary trading firm, or managing the trading activity of a hedge fund may sound like the perfect career, but it’s all too easy for beginner traders to overestimate their trading abilities, underestimate the movements of the markets, and find themselves in a financial hole of epic proportions after a few bad trades. So what does it really take to make a living in the markets? Tim Bourquin, co-founder of Traders Expo and the Forex Trading Expo and founder of TraderInterviews.com, and freelance writer and editor Nick Mango set out to answer that exact question in Traders at Work, a unique collection of over 20 interviews with some of the world’s most successful professional traders, from at-home hobbyists who have opened their own firms to those working at hedge funds, on proprietary trading desks, and in exchange pits. What mistakes did Anne-Marie Baiynd make early in her career? What does Michael Toma wish he had known about trading? What trading strategies work best for Linda Raschke? How does John Carter remain cool, calm, and collected when the markets are sending mixed signals? And how did Todd Gordon make the transition from part-time to full-time trader? Bourquin and Mango ask all of these questions and more in Traders at Work and in doing so reveal insider insights on what it takes to be a successful trader from those who are living that dream. Fascinating, compelling, and filled with never-before-told stories from the front lines of the trading arena, Traders at Work is required reading for anyone who has ever asked themselves if they have what it takes to trade for a living.

Likewise, so many creative physicians have commercializable ideas, but find out the hard way how a good idea does not a successful business make. Hacker’s book is a gem in that it speaks to both of these challenges in an engaging way. It is chock-full of wisdom, easily read, and very enjoyable reading. I’ll be recommending it to all of our trainees.” Joseph C. Kvedar, MD Director, Center for Connected Health Partners HealthCare System, Inc. Associate Professor of Dermatology Harvard Medical School “Part I allows the reader to envision the necessary activities for opening his or her own practice in the voice of the author, while Part II is a guide for budding entrepreneurs. Part II covers victories and defeats in clear, concise tones that anyone can appreciate and empathize with. Hemingwayesque, concise, and practical, this book would be an ideal gift from department chairs to their senior residents at the start of their last year of training, or a personal purchase around the same time if the chairperson is too cheap to buy it for you. If you are reading this, turn the page and take the roller-coaster ride. Enjoy!” Daniel Mark Siegel MD, MS (Management and Policy) Clinical Professor of Dermatology, SUNY Downstate Director, Procedural Dermatology Fellowship American Academy of Dermatology President 2011 “After reading this book, I am now more certain than ever that my impressions of Dr. Hacker nearly twenty years ago were correct. His book is an honest, open, forthright attempt to share with his colleagues those precious details he has learned about establishing a medical practice and becoming an entrepreneur. I thought this book was fun to read, informative, concise, and blatantly honest. As I told Dr. Hacker after reading his book, ‘I think you have taught an old dog some new tricks.’ “ Franklin P. Flowers, MD Professor, University of Florida College of Medicine Department of Medicine, Division of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery
