About this title


This novel envisioned, years before its time, electronic stock analysis and trading with an algorithm as now commonly is deployed worldwide at hedge funds. Dr. Rich Proffette, Chairman Emeritus of the Wharton School, has discovered the Holy Grail of Wall Street -- a breakthrough computer model for investing with a penchant for predicting the next day's trading range of stocks on the New York Stock Exchange. His Pinckney Award winning investment model, Market Equilibrium Shock Theory (MEST), is widely hailed as one of the greatest economic ciphers of the 20th century and has rewarded him with an immense fortune amid Wall Street's longest, highest Bull Market rampage. In the virtual world of "The Day Trader," it seems that everyone from money management gurus and underworld hackers to multinational banks and the U.S. government wants to seize the precious assets of Rich Proffette -- everyone except the one true love of his life, a stunning, gifted Wharton research assistant, Katherine North, who invented the model with him. And she knows a secret that may cost him his fortune. "The Day Trader" affords a random walk down Market Street in the City of Brotherly Love. This comic novel immerses one in the exotic universe of day trading with a jaunt through virtual Wall Street, where online investors drive relentlessly to become rich at the risk of their capital despite the odds against them.   
Please Note: The 1st Edition Softcover of "The Day Trader" is no longer in print.
