best books ?

  1. any suggestions for the must-read books for trading forex? i'd appreciate some good suggestions on the fundamental drivers and a good book on technical analysis (whether related specifically to forex or not). nothing toooo basic. i've read all the very basic stuff.

    thanks guys!
  2. Not a book, but reading Reuters on a regular basis gives a good background into what traders are looking at fundamentally, and watching/listening to Bloomberg.

    Most books I've seen on technical analysis seem to repeat the same old stuff, mostly lagging oscillator-based indicators which are pretty useless in practical trading.

    I don't read many trading books but about the best book I read was Mark Douglas - Trading in the Zone (you can have my copy if you drop me an email)
