Michael Sincere profile

Michael Sincere

My Biography

I write easy-to-understand nonfiction books about investing and trading in the stock and options market. I’m also a featured financial columnist for MarketWatch/The Wall Street Journal digital. My column on MarketWatch is “Michael Sincere’s Long-Term Trader.”

I’ve been interviewed on dozens of national radio programs and have appeared on several financial news programs such as CNBC and ABC’s World News Now to talk about my books.

Personal: When I'm not riding one of my e-bikes, I'm traveling, or doing both. Although I love dogs, I have an indoor-outdoor cat, Lizzie, who I rescued in 2022.

My Investment Strategies

I believe that most people should start by investing in an S&P 500 index fund. This should be their core account. After gaining experience, it makes sense to buy stocks, ETFs, and mutual funds. I also like selling covered calls on dividend-paying stocks that I own because of the income I receive.

Best-Selling Business Books

I wrote two bestselling books, Understanding Stocks (McGraw-Hill), and Understanding Options (McGraw-Hill). I also wrote All About Market Indicators (McGraw-Hill), Start Day Trading Now (Adams Media), Predict the Next Bull or Bear Market and Win (Adams Media), and Make Money Trading Options (McGraw-Hill). (My books have been translated into 13 languages, with Thai and German being the latest.)

In 2022, I wrote another edition of Understanding Stocks (McGraw-Hill, 3rd Edition), and How to Profit in the Stock Market (McGraw-Hill).
