Cool, I'm gettin' it. As a former short lived interbank dealer at ICAP, I can totally attest to the seedy nature of this business. The monkies just get greasier the higher up on the wheel they climb...

Yeah I read the MD trading in the zone book, aided in much benefit towards the mental process. Thumbs up.

Still need to read these others though, but one day at a time I guess.

These are the top 3 books that the greatest impact on me:
The Black Swan - Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Option Volatility & Pric​ing: Advanced Trading Strategies and Techniques - Sheldon Natenberg
Trade Your Way to Financial Freedom - K. Van Tharp


I just finished reading the Big Short by Michael Lewis, this was a fun read but not necessarily helpful for trading.

Which books can you recommend?

Trying to revitalize this thread a bid:

I am currently reading the book Algorithmic Trading & DMA by Barry Johnson, which I highly recommend:

It is interesting to know who are the guys you are playing against. It also will prevent you from ascending the Mount Everest with a pair of sandals. The book is relatively easy to read.

My next book afterward will be "Empricial Market Microstructure" by Joel Hasbrouck, I have already bought it and it sits and waits for me:

This one is a bit more demanding, requires some basic mathematical skills, so it will take some time.

The book is more geared towards option trading, which so far has not been a topic on this forum. Taleb is well known, and judged by the table of contents, it is certainly an interesting book.

Some traders prefer options over other instruments, since options maximises the return with leverages, slightly higher than the futures, of course its risky but with sound strategies it can favor the traders.my 2 cents.

This is just like the difference between playing violon and playing piano. Difficult to be a master of both instruments.
