    Trading Books I Recently Read !!!

    Hi guys,

    I am starting this new thread with the idea to make it a place where we could comment on new books we recently read, to discuss on them and share the most important things we learn from them. Trading is a difficult subject. It not only has to be practiced a lot, but also has to be mastered with researching the insights of other more experienced traders.

    For the beginning of this thread I will share my thoughts on the last book I read during the holidays. Its name is Beat the Forex Dealer by Agustin Silvani (2008), one of the most successful forex fund managers of the recent years, with long career in the forex market. In my opinion his book is a brilliant explanation of the game, full of insights of what drives the markets and what are the big player’s tricks. It also gives some practical example how to overcome the obstacle every small retail trader is heading and he explains how these obstacles could become our big weapons against big guys.

    Great I also have some trading books and read a lot when time allows!
    I like very much the writings of Joe Ross and Jake Berenstein, especially his traders bible 'The Compleat Day Trader', which has very good insights especially on the stock market trading.

    Yup! A Forex book is definitely something that I would like to pore over. Although, anything technical analysis related should help me immensely. I am not that great a chartist and it is an area I can work on quite a lot. Fundamentals are almost a piece of cake when it compared to technical stuff.
    I've been most successful with currencies in my binary trading and I think I might just have what it takes to build up a niche there. So a good Forex book will help polish my skills.

    I read books only when referred by someone as "excellent". I usually like to read short analysis articles and videos on trading.

    I like to read the Currency Trader Magazine.
    Its last issues are free on their website, really great magazine with a lot of information on the current market situation. My last book was ‘The forex trading course’ by Abe Cofnas. It covers wide range of fundamental factors and also the most important from the technical analyzes, so it is a great introduction for everyone starting currency trading. I know this guy has also some books on option trading, but couldn’t find them. If anybody knows the name of this book will appreciate very much!

    Now I'm with Mark Douglas - "Trading in the Zone". Last one I finished was Scott Patterson's "The Quants". By the way, anyone having Scott Patterson's "Dark Pools: High-Speed Traders, A.I. Bandits, and the Threat to the Global Financial System" ?

    Great idea for what could be a monster thread. Personally, I see trading books as "bunk." I just had a B-Day, am feeling old, and don't like wasting time on "theory" and "fortune telling." I just read market news at this point.

    That's great you have such interesting headlines. I also have plans to read “Trading in the Zone”, with my previous look on it I think a great book on trading psychology. I didn’t know about the two books by Scott Patterson. I am also a big fan of quants and high-frequency trading and will definitely read them if I find. Could you share with us “the quants”, fxeconomist? We will be very thanfull

    Yes, RCox! It will be a monster thread There are thousands of trading books out there. Most of them are beginners or junk, but some are great insights in the financial world, so I continue to search for such books and read them. Probably that’s because I am still young and have time for that kind of activity , but I think some of the books I read already pays off the time invested.
