Good beginner trading book?

Discussion in 'Educational Resources' started by mentorgen, Jul 27, 2005.

  1. I'm looking for a book for beginner traders for my students. A few of them have no experience in trading and I would like to provide them with a book that would teach them the basic - intermediate stuff. Things like, bid, offer, specialists when they can buy, short uptick rule, and if possible information on how to read the basics of the open book... such as a huge bid coming in, or offer. Also some basics on reading charts, breakouts, etc.

    Just a good beginning introduction to trading for them, before I teach them more complicated stuff.

  4. Was going to suggest the same, but it is focused on equities only (at least the edition that I have does). This was a great starter book.

    Maybe it is and I have lost touch with what it was like when I was first starting...It's been so long ago... I just assume that all this stuff is obvious. I don't mean to sound elitist, I really believe that.

    nitro :(

    well i guess i missed it.... i opened an account in may 05.
  10. i am mentoring a few people on how to trade better. i have 1 or 2 that know how to trade, the basics, and 1 or 2 that know nothing. nitro the book you recommended, is that good for people that have a basic knowledge?

    as for this daytrading online book, it teaches like spread, etc. right? how about what the specialist.. etc.?
    thanks guys for the suggestions.
    i will take a look.
