Good books for the new mini futures trader?

Discussion in 'Index Futures' started by ANCHOR, Jul 22, 2002.



    I have traded stocks for around two years now but I find myself wanting to try to trade the E-mini futures. What are some books I could read to learn more about these futures? I have already read everything one the CME home page and I would like more. I think I will be sticking with the S&P futures but I might check out the NQ too. What are some good book titles I could check out?

    Thanks for the help.
  2. I wouldn't want to see anyone start in futures without reading A Complete Guide to the Futures Market by Jack Scwager. I don't know if I've read it, but if I was starting all over I would. Understanding how corn and crude are traded will help you understand the mechanics of the eminis. (My first book was the series 3 study guide. I'm sure Jack's is more readable than that was!)
