As a long-time investor, Hans Wagner was able to retire at the age of 55, by following a rigorous and disciplined process that used sound investment principles. After his children and their friends graduated from college, Hans began helping them to invest in the stock market. Soon, friends and acquaintances also began to seek advice, so Hans created Trading Online Markets, an investment advisory firm which provides information on investing topics, along with sample portfolios.


Hans has earned his Master's of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Colorado Boulder in 1974, and he earned his Bachelor of Science from the United States Air Force Academy in 1969.
