    this is the first one to read. as old as it is - the lessons still apply today. fun easy reading. you will probaly read this many times in your trading career.

    Congrats on the MBA. I am working towards mine too. It does not teach you anything about trading though. I think that is what most are trying to say. It is a lot easier than trading is.

    i've had the same experience with much of my learning off of books and even many lectures.

    once i had started my real world training, i had to spend the first months throwing wrong/obsolete book knowledge out of my mind and learning what i see on the screen.

    that being said, i highly recommend 'the disciplined trader' by Douglas. its a psychological trestise but one i refer back to every other month even now

    The best advie I can give you is a take a week to read all these books, the replies on this post, and then start your own thread telling us what you think of the markets with this plethora of experience.

  5. That's very excellent insight into education and psychology. That's the same stuff I hear from people with experience as well as from my own.
