Funny enough, Brooks claims that anything outside of chart bars is unnecessary noise ;-)

What has been the most foundational resource/book in your studies of futures?

Watching the markets for the last 15 years.
There are some great pshchology books about trading Mark Douglas- Trading in the zone, Van Tharps- first book. I also liked Daltons - Markets in Profile.

I have read a few on specific strategies/setups but none have been much help, for me at least

One mentioned on here that I am goin to read is Denise Schill: Market Mind Games

Volatility is good for the market and trading.

Preservation of capital is the most important concept for those who want to stay in the trading game for the long haul. - Van Tharp
