Mark is the author of the bestselling book Trade Like a Stock Market Wizard: How to Achieve Superperformance in Stocks in Any Market. Starting with only a few thousand dollars, Mark turned his personal trading account into millions, averaging 220% per year for five consecutive years with only one losing quarter, achieving an incredible 36,000% total return.
To put that in perspective, a $100,000 account would explode to over $30 million in just five years. To demonstrate the capabilities of his SEPA® methodology, in 1997, Mark put up $250,000 of his own money and entered the U.S. Investing Championship. Trading against highly leveraged futures and options traders, Mark traded a long-only stock portfolio to win the real-money investment derby with a 155% annual return, a performance that was nearly double the nearest competing money manager.
Mark is featured in Jack Schwager’s Stock Market Wizards: Interviews with America’s Top Stock Traders. Schwager wrote: “Minervini’s performance has been nothing short of astounding. Most traders and money managers would be delighted to have Minervini’s worst year—a 128 percent gain—as their best.” Mark educates traders about his trading methodology through Minervini Private Access, a streaming communication platform that allows users the unique experience of trading side by side with him in real time. He also conducts a live Master Trader Program workshop, where he teaches his system in a twoday weekend event
