If you had one book by your bedside.

  1. If you could only keep one trading/stocks/futures/investing book by your bedside to refer to every night before you went to bed so that you were "on your game" the next day...what would it be?

    Oh, for crimeny. Take it to chit-chat. He asked about trading books. Some people can never resist an opportunity to try and shove their mythical crap down your throat, no matter how inappropriate or off-topic.

    As for trading books, I'm a TA guy, so something like Murphy or Edwards & Magee.

  6. I've just finished "High Probability Trading," by Marcel Link and I think it might be a decent candidate.

    For me I like a bit of light reading so something entertaining and amusing that also puts my meager trading goals into perspective, so apart from reading ET....

    My notebook.

    I would use it to review everything that I wrote down about the day's action, my good trades, the information that I gained, the books that I read, the relevant comments that I heard and my mistakes for the next four years.

    At the end of those four years, I'd know how to trade.

    This passage from "Come Into My Trading Room" by Alexander Elder:

    Years ago, when I began my recovery from losing, each morning I held
    what I called a Losers Anonymous meeting for one. I'd come into the
    office, turn on my quote screen, and while it was warming up I'd say,
    "Good morning, my name is Alex, and I am a loser. I have it in me to
    do serious damage to my account. I've done it before. My only goal for
    today is to go home without a loss."
  10. On the flip side of mythical crap.
