Bao “Modern Rock” is an American day trader, well-respected in the trading community. Unlike many other professional traders, Bao routinely helps newer traders by calling out his trades (in real-time) on Twitter. The idea of “giving back” to the trading community for free is a strong part of his overall philosophy.
Bao graduated from U.C. Davis with a degree in Engineering and spent 8 years as a developer during the .COM days in Silicon Valley. However, Bao was more interested in trading stocks than he was programming applications. He became instantly hooked when his very first trade on Silicon Graphics (SGI) made him 30% overnight.
Bao moved to NYC around 2000 during which time he became really focused in day trading and decided to become a full time trader, trading exclusively for himself. Although Bao currently trades all types of US equity stocks, for many years his expertise was in the area of penny stocks, where he made a name for himself as “Modern_Rock”. Bao currently lives in Silicon Valley, CA and spends his time traveling and paying it forward, sharing his trading knowledge for free via THE Trading Fish @mrockrulez
