This book has probably been mentioned at some point in the thread already, but it deserves reiterating: Amazon.com: The Daily Trading Coach: 101 Lessons for Becoming Your Own Trading Psychologist (Wiley Trading) (9780470398562): Brett N. Steenbarger: Books

As the title suggests, it contains 101 trading specific psychological lessons. They're short enough to read in a couple minutes each. I have made a habit of reading one lesson every single morning when I wake up before the trading day. In my opinion, trading psychology doesn't get any better than Steenbarger.

Diversification is the only free lunch

Can anyone give some reviews about this book?

Tape Reading 101 by Bidhitter Holdings

Amazon.com: Tape Reading 101 (9781477421574): Bidhitter Holdings: Books

There aren't much books about this topic and this is quite expensive. Their website is quite daunting (looks like 99$ Forex Holy Grail Offer). I don't search for BM threads - i'm searching for books or articles.

Koepisch

Further to the rubbish comment above, I bought one of the Bidhitter videos expecting in-depth nuggets on price and volume behavior. But the video was awful, so lightweight and poor I had to ask for my money back and complain about their marketing crap.

They ignored my several emails and did not refund, so I told them I would tell others about their poor quality stuff any time I had the chance.

Keep well away. Rubbish. Scammers. Snake oil. Etc... You have been warned.

* Markets produce an enormous volume of information, much of which is redundant
* In every game and con there's always an opponent, and there's always a victim. The trick is to know when you're the latter, so you can become the former

Liar's Poker by Michael Lewis

Liar's Poker by Michael Lewis
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


Book Description
The time was the 1980s. The place was Wall Street. The game was called Liar’s Poker.

Michael Lewis was fresh out of Princeton and the London School of Economics when he landed a job at Salomon Brothers, one of Wall Street’s premier investment firms. During the next three years, Lewis rose from callow trainee to bond salesman, raking in millions for the firm and cashing in on a modern-day gold rush.

Liar’s Poker is the culmination of those heady, frenzied years—a behind-the-scenes look at a unique and turbulent time in American business. From the frat-boy camaraderie of the forty-first-floor trading room to the killer instinct that made ambitious young men gamble everything on a high-stakes game of bluffing and deception, here is Michael Lewis’s knowing and hilarious insider’s account of an unprecedented era of greed, gluttony, and outrageous fortune.

* If investing gets too difficult for a seventh grader to understand, the system is needlessly complex
* Markets produce an enormous volume of information, much of which is redundant
* In every game and con there's always an opponent, and there's always a victim. The trick is to know when you're the latter, so you can become the former

Hey Jonson,

I do not believe you should be posting affiliate links to Amazon here. Reviews should be by those of us that have read the books. You are just pasting general book info, and as you know, your link earns money on anything anyone buys from Amazon. Sneeky...

Perhaps Mike can comment on this practice. I have many books I could link this way and prosper.

I do not make sense to advertise online store, I just posted a link for people to understand a little more about the book than the description and no more

We do not allow affiliate links. If someone posts an affiliate link, use the Report Post feature. Ultimately that person will be banned if they do it after being told not to.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Hi Jonson,

Ok, sorry for making a mistake here! I was under impression your links were not direct, but seems they are after all.

Thanks Mike for the clarification. We have all been warned. Only Mike is entitled to earnings from this site.

Studies in Tape Reading

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


Contained within are the results of a lifetime of studies in tape reading. It’s a pursuit that is profitable…but it’s not for the slow minded or weak hearted. You must be resolute…strength of will is an absolute requirement as is discipline, concentration, study and a calm disposition. May your efforts bear fruit and strengthen your will to persevere

Thanks to DbPhoenix for attached pdf file

One of my favorite books is Dancing With Lions.

Was written by Trader X.
The book describes Trader X's personal experience in the future markets.
I remember the first time I read it took me by surprise because it showed me the other side of the markets, a market that goes beyond charts and hearsay's.

I believe it was only available in pdf.
It seems the author closed his blog when the book was being sold...

Google books has the first 49 pages

Dancing With Lions - Trader X - Google Livros

If I become half a percent smarter each year, I'll be a genius by the time I die
