    i have two newbies within my team and i want to feed them with best information about the markets to enable a steep productivity curve. one is c++ pro, the other is mathematician with c++ know how as well. both already programmed some trading systems.

    it's been a while since i bought trading books and i am definitely not up-to-date. this is why i would like to ask if you could tell me your favourite books which you think should be on the book shelf of a systematic trading operation.

    i place this here within trading, since i hope for some reaction before it is moved somewhere else, where there is less noise. :)

    thnx

    so you are going for:

    Trading Systems That Work: Building & Evaluating Effective Trading Systems, Irwin Trader's Edge Ser.
    Author: Stridsman, Thomas


    did you read it? are you trading systematic?

    George Pruitt, editor of Futures Truth magazine, has a list of recommended books on trading systems at Amazon.com. He's probably one of the best qualified people to make suggestions in this area.

    George Pruitt's book list
     


  5. i see he reccomends one of my all time faves:

    "winner take all" by gallacher

    EVERY new trader should read this one.

  6. Surf,
    Interested as to why you mention that book. Isn't he the guy who rubbishes TA?
     

  7. yes he does, to a point. have you read it ?


    i utilize TA extensively to provide a framework on market chaos but am well aware of its limitations. gallacher's book is an eye opener--i highly reccomend it to TA believers and non believers.

  8. I looked at the reviews on amazon and decided against buying it. But since you found it useful I'll take another look.
     
  9. Wonderful list!
    Besides the list, I recommand:

    1. Trade Like a Hedge Fund: 20 Successful Un-correlated Strategies & Techniques to Winning Profits.
    Author: James Altucher

    2. Design, Testing, and Optimization of Trading Systems
