Hi, I'm looking for a book containing information about exchange itself. Not indicators, not strategies, not psychology, not money management. I've been reading information about those things but I need to understand the principles of exchange. Well I understand them but not in a way I would like to. I really want to know what is happening on exchange and how it all works in real. Not just see charts, lines etc. I would like to know for example how banks trade on exchange or what influence has FED on exchange, what exactly is happening when I go "short", etc.. I hope you understand me what I'm looking for :-)

Thank you

P.S. sorry for my english :-)))

After almost 5 years of trading, I bought my first book. (audio)
Mark Douglas' Trading in the Zone

To be honest, I received it free through audible.
I couldn't pass up the free trial.

After years of trading, I've experienced all of the pitfalls he talks about.
If you are a novice, you may understand what he's saying, but you
really don't know until you handle the trials and tribulations from years
of trading yourself. I'm not sure you can actually avoid these pitfalls
until you've felt the pain they bring to begin with. Either way, it's a great
read (listen) for novices and advanced traders alike.

Psychology > Strategy ≥ Money

Hi guys, can you recommend some good books about selling options? Preferably in electronic format for kindle. There are lot of them on amazon, but I am not sure which one (or 2-3) is the best. I am newbie and would like to find out more about this topic. The book (s) should contain some basics + the basic strategies used (Iron Condor etc.). Thanx in advance.

On basics I'd have to say John Hull is a classic very clear and concise on the basic strategies and the details behind them. more theoretical, I'd go that way first and then look for something more advanced. Otherwise there's a lot of free websites online, of course that's a little more time consuming.

I have read many trading books from market wizards to the daily trading coach and it's interesting that I have learned more about trading from books and other sources which are not about trading. Trading books are good for basic trading education and inspiration, but that's it. The most valuable understanding is easier to get from other books (psychology, human mind, thinking, biology, peak performance) because you have to think the subject more deeply and how it affects trading.

Daniel Kahneman: Thinking fast and slow
Jonah Lehrer: How we decide
Dan Ariely: Predictably irrational
Eric Ries: The lean startup
Simon Sinek: Start with why
Simon Sinek: Leaders eat last
Wikipedia: list of cognitive biases, list of fallacies, behavioral economics, neuroeconomics, decision making, irrationality

A lot of traders find the emotional/psychological part tough.
The best way to reduce that problem that I've seen many many professionals use is to focus on technique and to make trading a mechanical process and to stick to that process consistently. It is then largely free of psychology, well as much as it can be when you have your own money on the line :-)

A lot of this can actually be found on the actual exchange website. Just need to dig in there deep and read the long boring stuff......
