I'm going to recommend Dalton's Mind Over Markets 2nd ed. before it comes out.

Wiley: Mind Over Markets: Power Trading with Market Generated Information, 2nd Edition - James F. Dalton

Maybe he'll do a webinar to promote it

Already ahead of you...

Mike

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

I would advise this store because it will have it for €10 less

I bought the previous version for my Kindle and what a mistake that was.
Research books are NOT to be read on digital devices.

I will definitely buy this new version.

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

@arnie: That is an important point. I use my Kindle to read classics and novels, everything that can be read from the beginning to the end. However any science or research book should not be read on Kindle. If you need to go back a few pages to look up a definition or a formula it becomes a real pain.

All my trading and finance books are printed books.

@Fat Tails

Definitely!
I can tell you that I never finished reading it because I got tired. Reading a chart comment when the chart itself is 10 Kindle pages forward, look at the chart and then go back to continue reading... what a pain.
I actually started to take screenshots of the charts and then transferred them to the PC so while reading on the Kindle I would look at the chart on the PC but that also became painful because there are a lot of charts to look at.

When I bought the printed version of Markets in Profile... boy what a difference. From that day I told myself never again I would buy a research book for the Kindle.

For every other type of book I only buy Kindle versions. It saves a lot of shelves space, less dust accumulation...

Well, yeah, but the problem is that I cannot spend too much time reading text on a white background screen.
That is one of the reasons all my charts have black background.
I spent so many hours in front of the screens that my eyes are getting more and more sensitive to bright lights.

When I have long texts to read I usually print it because I just can't stand reading on the screen.

By the way @Big Mike, have you ever thought creating a black or dark gray skin for the forum where the letters would become white, it would help a lot. There are many threads to read and I end up not reading them because my eyes start to cry. Sure many times I cry because I'm seeing someone profiting from my loss but that is another problem

@arnie: Why not reduce the brightness of your screen, I have set mine to 40%. That also saves electricity.

May I kindly disagree?
My solution is to use a second screen. While reading on a primary device (real kindle), I just use another device (tablet/PC/smartphone) for lookup purposes. Of course, whispersync has to be disabled.

So the "real pain" transforms to "real pleasure". Search and bookmarking features even add more comfort.

Arnie,

Depending on which browser you use there are a number of extensions available that will allow you to invert your browser's colour via one/two keystrokes.
