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 Lefèvre
- Against the Gods, Peter L. Bernstein
- Trading in the Zone, Michael Douglas
- Encyclopedia of Chart Patterns, Thomas N. Bulkowski

yeah, if u already have a clue about the mechanics of the stock mkt dump the idea of buyin' any books...u might have to get rid of the only few good ideas u have about tradin' just by readin' some of the stupid suggestions usually found on that crap. open an acct., maybe at ib that offers a paper tradin' facility and learn everythin' about order routin', etc. then place a few virtual orders just to get comfy with tws. once u see u dont make silly mistakes no more go live with 20-50shares and work your way up from there. follow bloomie tv durin'/after the session, lots of useful info there. this actually is the best route to learn how to trade imo.

best

Well, as you may already know, there's only three kinds of people:
those who can count, and those who can't

What kind of trading time frame are you looking for? Scalp, swing, etc.? Are you going to be sitting in front of a computer all day. All are things to cinsider which will affect the answer to your question
