Darryl Morley is a well known and respected newspaper columnist and professional trader, who is a former stockbroker. He has been writing his avidly followed Day Trader column on trading and technical analysis for the Melbourne Herald Sun and the Hobart Mercury for over 11 years.

Darryl is likely unique, in that he actually writes about his own trades, his reasoning for selecting or rejecting certain stocks, how he sets his targets, his stops, his exit strategies. He’s also not shy about staying out of the market if the signals are not right and explaining why. This is very different from most talking heads, who are not dealing with their own money.

New columns are updated to this site every week.

These columns are written and published as a chronicle of Darryl’s trading. Any information provided is of an educational nature only. Please note that we are NOT a stock tipping service, either through the newspaper column nor through the workshops. Our hope is that by watching and learning from Darryl’s trading technique, you can start to learn to take control of your own finances, which we believe is especially relevant in today’s turbulent market.
