    I started studying options (and the market in general) in September. I've read:

    Random Walk Down Wall Street
    One up on Wall Street
    Getting Started in Options
    Swing Trading
    Stikky Stock Charts

    IBD - once a week
    Barron's - once a week Real Money - everyday
    schaeffer's - everyday

    Any suggestions are appericated.

  2. Do not take "Random Walk" too seriously because when it comes right down to it the book is dead wrong. It is hard to see this because it explains the market to the "scientific consensus" that most educated people have. A much better book to read in it's stead is "The Alchemy of finance" by George Soros. Soros is one of the few people who has written about the markets with absolutely no need for the money from royalties.

    One book that seems to be on most lists is Taleb's "Fooled by Randomness." I don't like his writing style, but it's definately a must-read IMO.
