My Reading List

This post will document market/trading-related books on my reading list. I may add a short review for each at a later time.

Books I'm currently reading
Books I've Read
Books I own but have not had a chance to read yet


  1. hi, nice journal/blog. If you don't mind me asking, what exactly is your method, or is it discretionary?

    Thanks. I have a blog too on

  2. emacro, method is trend-following discretionary but with certain rules in place to protect against bad trade plaement. Go over the prior posts, and view the marked up charts to see how I trade. And welcome to the Blog :)

  3. Solid list. I read most and I'm now in the process of reading Trading in the Zone to be followed by The Daily Trading Coach. I noticed "The New Market Wizards" but not the original (first) "The Market Wizards". That's the best book I've ever read and I highly recommend it when you have a chance if you haven't already. BTW, this is an excellent blog. Good job and good luck trading.

  4. Thanks for stopping by Nick. I think I've read the original Market Wizards book as well but it was several years ago, so I should probably re-read it.
