hi, found this forum randomly, saw some good threads and thought why not start a thread and see if i could get some help. basically im 21, play poker, go to ucsd for bioengineering and have about 25k to trade with. ive been trading for a couple months, but really dont know what im doing. i read the news and basically buy when i think the stock is coming back up and sell when i have a nice profit.
anyways ive always believed that whenever you start something you should get a good book or website and read up. thats what i did with poker and it worked well.
so if anyone wants to recommend a good read that would be awesome. if someone whos done this for a while wants to be a mentor that would be even better( but i dont know what i can really offer in exchange for a mentor).
alright thats all, sorry if this is considered spam at all.
The 3 very best books I've read on trading during the past 9 years:
- Rules of the Trade, David S. Nassar
- Reminiscences of a Stock Operator, Edwin Lefθvre
- Against the Gods, Peter L. Bernstein
- Trading in the Zone, Michael Douglas
- Encyclopedia of Chart Patterns, Thomas N. Bulkowski
And the best advice I can give you:
trade small size while you learn and read a lot!
