    While reading the "Black Friday" post, I noticed that marketsurfer referred to a song of that title as being a good "Trading Song".

    I thought it might be fun to create a Trading Compilation CD containing songs whose titles sum up the "trading experience".

    I take first dibs on the most obvious tracks:

    1. Money - Pink Floyd - 1973
    2. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For - U2 - 1987
    3. Helter Skelter - The Beatles - 1968
    4. The Times, They Are A-changin' - Bob Dylan - 1964

    Apologies if it's already been done elsewhere - didn't research it ... :)
  2. When trading, I prefer early 80s rock, some patriotic march instrumentals, or even better... just silence.

    Here are two more, suitable or not, depending on your trading experiences:

    - Highway to Hell - AC/DC - 1979
    - Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin - 1971

    I believe I am showing my age...

    How about "Day Tripper" with alternate lyrics:

    'Cause I'm a day trader.
    One day ticket, yeah.
    I hold it only so long,
    Then I'm out, yes I'm out!
  5. The market has interesting parallels with music. Look at sheet music, and compare it with a chart.....many similarities. Music has recurring patterns, harmonics, scales, a beat, shifts from major to minor, and many other characteristics. Markets all exhibit these exact same phenomena. There are many market lessons to be learned from music. Personally, I like to trade to classical music, changing the music to fit the tempo of the market. It works for me.

    ...and good taste!

    stick in some Jimi, Beatles, CCR, Rolling Stones and The Who and you're good to go! wish i'd been born 30-40 years earlier :(
