Inspired by real life, Author Aiden Drake bares it all in his novel ‘My Life As A Day Trader: Living The Dream: A Financial Market Thriller’


    Aiden Drake is offering the first installment in a promising new series, The Day Trader, set in the exciting and dangerous world of financial markets, trading, and corruption. Aiden Drake is just a small-town boy who has made it big and is now facing a web of corruption darker and deeper than he could have ever imagined. 

    LaSalle Street, Wall Street, the Las Vegas Strip, and beyond set the setting for this novel, places full of luxury, money, and also corruption. Aiden does trading for a living, but this dream comes with a dark side, as during the night, he faces all the troubles, some of his own making. 

    Beyond the exciting narrative, the book serves as an introduction to the world of trading and can help readers understand how traders live and work. The novel is a perfect combination of education and entertainment, something that author Aiden Drake also seeks out always and tries to provide in each of his books.

    This is just the first novel in a promised series of four, which means that Drake’s adventures are sure to escalate. The first book brings a wild combination of all the things one expects in a thriller centered on finances: drugs, sin, money, and danger. But instead, Drake becomes caught up in a complicated web of scams, corruption of cops and lawyers, drug dealers, and even wicked Mormons.

    The book is the first part of The Day Trader series that promises a lot more excitement, danger, and, besides, an introduction to the world of trading that can interest many readers in the theoretical or more practical sense, as it is written by someone with experience in the field.

    In addition to The Day Trader series, which is currently being developed, Drake has published a non-fiction book, The 5 Rules of Highly Successful Traders, which serves as a powerful guide for people who are entering the world of trading and growing professionally within the field. Drake is experienced in trading and also offers guides, courses, and other forms of support for people who want to join the market. In particular, you can get The 5 Rules of Highly Successful Traders for just $29, and if it’s not useful, then the author will refund you. What is more, Drake makes the promise of offering the best “damn book on trading you’ve ever read.” 

    Trading is a high-pressure, high-stakes environment, which makes it a perfect setting for a thriller with a focus on corruption and power, and the author’s expertise adds many touches of realism and engagement, making it all feel so much more real. It serves as an entertaining, thrilling ride across a world hidden from view and also as an educational guide to what trading is, how it works, and other elements that are sure to benefit readers. 


    We had the pleasure of interviewing Aiden Drake. Here are the excerpts from the interview. 

    Hi Aiden, Great to have you with us today! Please share with our readers about yourself.

    Hi, I am a day trader for a living. I was educated at the Chicago Board of Trade and Chicago Mercantile Exchanges and have had a wonderfully fantastic life, but I got into a lot of trouble, so I decided to create a novel around some of my real-life experiences. 

    Please tell us more about your book. 

    When I read books, I like to be both educated as well as entertained, so my book is both educational, where the reader will learn a lot about the financial markets and how I trade for a living, but the book is also interwoven through a “fictional.” storyline. I have also provided links to resource material, such as PowerPoint presentations and other books and cheat sheets, to help one receive a more immersive experience. For example, in one chapter, the main character, Aiden, gives a speech at a financial symposium and provides a link to the PowerPoint presentation so the reader can follow along with not only a written description of the speech but also the slides. 

    In one chapter, the main character, Aiden, is interviewed by a radio station, where he gives a lot of details about his life as a trader, his philosophy about trading, and a number of tips and tricks about how to get started trading the financial markets for a living. Again, this is all woven into the overall story of his life, where Aiden becomes tied into a very seedy underworld in Las Vegas, with stripper scams, drug dealers, and some very corrupt cops and lawyers. 

    This is an educational thriller. (I’m not sure if that’s really a thing, but here it is.) 😉

    Any message for our readers.

    This book is both entertaining as well as educational, and it’s a how-to book on trading and a how-not-to on life. 

    Fantastic! So tell us, how can people find out more about you?

    To find out more about me, visit the website where the entire series of books are listed, both published and in the works, plus several resource books I’ve written for people interested in learning more about trading. This really is a book meant for people interested in trading the financial markets but enjoy reading torrid thrillers at the same time, which may be a small and unique category of readers, but that’s where I fit into the world of book reading, so I wanted to write that kind of book. It’s fun, entertaining, and educational. 

    Thank you so much, Aiden, for giving us your precious time! We wish you all the best for your journey ahead!
