Here is a short list of books I've read and recommend. I am not a big reader of books in print, I tend to prefer on-line methods... but nonetheless, these are great reads and contain a lot of information that helped me.


My favorite to read, and the one where I tended to relate the most, was Martin Schwartz's "Pit Bull". The other books are on every trader's "must have" list, so if you haven't read them already, then do yourself a favor and pick them up. The last one is a compilation of chart patterns and how to trade them by Suri Duddella, it is a fantastic reference to understand what is going on behind your favorite indicators.

These are the three books that belong on every trader's book shelf.

Especially the one by Edwards and Magee. These guys invented trading.

Hi Alan,

I am reading this book right now. So far I am enjoying it. I sought a book specifically dealing with Money Management and Psychology, and this book is hitting on that perfectly.

Elder's "Come Into My Trading Room" is also good. Not so much for the indicators but for the process. "Sell and Sell Short" is his latest. It came out in H2 2008... very timely .

Mike,

along with MXASJ's comment about Alexander Elder's Come Into My Trading Room, there's a companion book:

Study Guide for Come Into My Trading Room

It's an excellent resource.
