BTW, I did not care for Trading in the Zone but many do. Market Wizards, and Market Wizards II, and Reminiscences of a Stock Operator are all must-reads.


I found Trading In The Zone to be excellent for the psychological aspects of trading (the importance of truly thinking in probabilities and not just paying lip service to it). However it is repetitive and contains lots of needless waffle. I condensed the book into 6 pages of A4 which I sometimes re-read.

I don't much care for technical trading books. The Market Wizards books are great. Reminiscences of a Stock Operator (annotated edition very helpful for those aged under 100) is next. I'm gonna get Pit Bull on the strength of recommendations here. Beat The Forex Dealer also sounds like it might be a good read.
