    Thinking about to be a trader or working in trading area.

    Is there some good books worth to read about the real trading world? Or somebody I can recommend some entry-level books about trading.

    Thanks in advance.

    trading world? at what level?

    trading in the pits? trading at a small firm? a large firm? trading on your own?

    and scalping / daytrading? or buying a large position over time, and holding for multi years?

    and stocks, commodities, derivatives, swaps, etc.?

    those are all different trading 'worlds', and although some of the basic how-to's are similar (though multi year for a firm and small position for an individual are *completely* different), it depends on what you are looking for.
