Classic trading books

  1. I'm looking for a list of some older books on trading/investing/speculating. Some classics like Reminiscences would be great.

    Thanks in advance,

  2. Nothing? I even emailed John Wiley & Sons, Inc. I didn't hear from them either. When I bought "Reminiscences" and "The Battle for Investment Survival" they are both published by Wiley as part of their Wiley Investment Classics series. You would think this would include more than 2 books!

    I thought some of you had shelves and shelves of books. Surely some of them must be classics?

    Can anyone hook a brother up?

    Prentice Hall has published a Traders' Masterclass series. You may want to have a look at it.
  6. Thank you EasyGuru! I own "When to Sell" and have read "My Own Story". The rest I will look into. I'm also going to check out the Prentice Hall tip.

    Thanks again,

    What kind of stuff does Rhea cover in his book? Didn't he revise the dow theory?
  9. I found them. Fraser is the name:

    I'll be checking out their titles.

  10. The September issue of Technical Analysis of Stocks and Commodities has a list of classic trading books on page 120 and 121. Too many to list
