So, one of the biggest problem I come across in this business is there are too many damn educational resources (probably written/created by people who are passionate about the market but were unable to make a living from it). Anyway, collecting from various forums, I compiled a list of books to read. Please can any of the successful traders on this forum (I hope they exist), help me filter it down so I only read the ones that are necessary. Feel free to add to the list as well. I have already read the first 5 books in this list and they helped me in some way or the other. Here goes: Market Wizards Interviews with Top Traders by Jack D.
