About the Author

Thomas Busby (Mobile, AL) has been a professional trader and broker for 25 years, working with Merrill Lynch and Smith Barney. He is a member of both the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and the Chicago Board of Trade. Busby founded the Day Trading Institute in 1996 and it has grown into one of the most successful trading schools in the world. The school operates out of a 10,000 square foot facility and has trained more than 5,000 traders. One year after taking the DTI course, about 70 percent of the students are still trading, one of the highest success rates in the industry. After enormous success early in his career, Busby lost almost everything in the 1987 stock market crash. Following that experience, he developed a low-risk, short-term trading method, which consistently generates profits and is the basis of the Day Trading Institute curriculum.
