    I've just gone through half the books at the school library on trading, and found most of them not so well written or practical. Perhaps this could help all of us filter out the bad ones quickly.
    Here's my list,

    1. Trade Your Way To Financial Freedom By Van thorpe
    2. An Introduction to Mathematical Finance By Fred Espen Benth
    3. Technical Analysis For The Trading Professional by Constance Brown
    4. Trend Following by Michael Covel
    5. Trading Pairs: Capturing Profits and Hedging Risk with Statistical Arbitrage Strategies
    By Mark Whistler

    bah I just noticed the "educational resources" section, and had tried to delete/repost this topic there. The website isn't allowing me to do that apparently.
