Who is Al Brooks?

Al Brooks, MD, a trader, technical analyst, author, and contributor to Futures magazine, Sacramento, California, USA.

Al Brooks earned his medical degree from the University of Chicago and, after working in eye surgery for more than 30 years, switched to day trading with a focus on price action. He has given lectures on all four continents and trained countless merchants. Additionally, he has taught advanced trading methods at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. He is particularly well-liked for his lectures at the MoneyShow and the TradersExpo. He contributed technical analysis to Futures magazine for a long time.

Al is a remarkable individual who reads the price action using a 5-minute candlestick like a storybook. His publications aid traders in understanding the market in straightforward ways. Definitely, one may earn good money by being patient. His works are not as tough to grasp as most of us believe; you simply need to catch on to his vocabulary, which may be challenging at first. The third of his three books, Trading Reversal, contains most of the approach; the beauty of this book is that you can’t grasp the third without first understanding the previous two.

He states that there is a 60% likelihood that the trade will move in your favor when the probability of trade is good. At the same time, he adds that you cannot ignore someone who is pointing at you from 40 yards away. Think as a buyer and a seller; they are wise words for every dealer. He claims that the key to successful trading is patience.

He practices ophthalmology. Being medical students while pursuing a degree in medicine, they continued to write theses and journals. This practice was carried over when he transitioned from medical student to full-time trader by penning these great books on price action.


Trader’s Career

Al feels that he views price action differently from other traders because he thinks that every tick that occurs during the day has meaning and is not just random noise. He believes that each of the 200 or so major corporations is highly familiar with many parts of the puzzle because of the enormous quantity of information that is contained in the charts for every time period, but a large portion of the puzzle is really invisible to all of them. A trader doesn’t need to view every piece in order to regularly earn money, but the more he does, the more chances he has to do so.

Always an awesome guy to hire and buy from in our early days of surfing in the 90s. Always super friendly, helpful, and understanding. If mates hired boards he would let us drop them back up at his house. Total trust.

I remember often going into the shop on South Street with my parents so they could catch up with him. Once a customer was trying on a hoody while we were in there and pulled out a packet of cigs from the pocket…Al said ‘oh sorry they’re mine’   xx

  1. You have written about 2 completely different Al Brooks here. The poor guy who died is not Al Brooks the trader.

    An example of poor fake news or very poor AI-enabled writing. Pathetic.
