Newbie seeking advice

Discussion in 'Professional Trading' started by gamemerlin, Mar 20, 2013.

  1. Hello All,

    I am completely a newb when it comes to trading. I am a software developer and am interested in programming a bot to trade. My problem is I don't know anything about trading.

    So I was hoping some more experienced people can give me advice on how to start to learn about trading. How did some of you start?

    Any recommendations on books and online courses would be appreciated. I am interested in mainly equities trading. I looked into forex, it is a mystery to me.

    I am not in a rush I figure it will take a while before I understand the basics of how to trade successfully. Also in my research I have read 99% of traders basically drop out or break even, it is only top 1% that can do it full time as a living.

    Bob Volman's Forex Price Action Scalping

    Read this to understand some basic (and codable) price action trading concepts. Don't worry about the "Forex" part of it or the "scalping" part of it. The book is a true gem.
