It’s been well over a year since I updated this page, so here’s some fresh info. As I gain more and more experience as a trader, the kind of information I want to read has changed a great deal so I’m going to split a few things up here.
Beginner (I assume you at least know what trading is) reading list;
Trading in the Zone – Mark Douglas
Trade Your Way to Financial Freedom – Van Tharpe
Schwager on Futures: Technical Analysis – Jack Schwager
A Beginners Guide to Trading Online – Toni Turner
- The video tutorials on this site are where I learned almost everything I know about technical analysis. This is a wonderful resource for those to get used to chart reading. However, although it is good to learn about the indicators (MACD etc) I would not advise using them in any way in your trading.
- There is a vast amount of information available on here. Best used to find info on sector relative strength/weakness etc. If you check back here every night for a few weeks, you will soon learn what I mean about relative strength and sector rotation.
- Psychology is probably the most important aspect in trading, and this is a truly excellent education destination.
The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable – Nassim Nicholas Taleb (currently reading)
- Great site for macro economic and inter-market information.
- The educational sections has hundreds of white papers on trading strategies as well as an abundance of market statistics and information.
- Excellent resource for understanding the auction market theory concept
I used to read a lot of other blogs in my early days but now I only check a few regularly
- Electronic Local – Market profile and rules based trading systems
- Trading Naked resource library – Lots of articles, papers and books on trading
- Bankrobber – Trades the charts, simple as
- Day Trading Radio – I Idolized this guy when I started, still check in now and again
