This community is life changing. When I started, I was a nurse working sometimes 16-hour shifts. I knew I wanted the freedom and flexibility of trading.


Bear Bull Traders gave me this and so much more. I now have a new career that I love. The features and content they put out is second to none.



BBT is a great community to be a part of to develop as a trader. The chatroom and the educational resources are invaluable no matter your experience.


All of the members are incredibly helpful and questions are encouraged – it’s a serious but welcoming place to learn.


Philadelphia, USA

Andrew, his book, the Bear Bull Traders (BBT) team and the BBT chat room have reinvented and redefined Day Trading.


There are many chat rooms out there, and I have seen and tried many of them, and there is nothing that comes close to BBT. Their classes and success webinars are worth their weight in gold.

DANGER & OPPORTUNITY: Navigating Volatility during a Bear Market

The Chinese word for CRISIS consists of two ideograms: Danger & Opportunity.This well-known metaphor is particularly apropos for those of us who choose to actively trade this Bear Market. But the contradiction is real. And if we are not careful it can put us into a double bind… a no-win situation that leads to random acts of trading and account blowups.

I’ll show you some “tricks” to simplify your trading and at the same time make it more precise.
