  6. V-Viper,

    Your list is excellent. This will keep you going for a while. Will you be able to trade after your readings? Don't forget, nobody is such a fool as to sell you for a couple of $$ any recipie to make you earn millions. That you'll have to discover for yourself.

    Good reading,

    I wouldn't bother with "Millionaire Next Door". It's misleading, and could make you "illiterate". Be careful what you wish for. The Warren Buffett books also have to be taken with caution if you plan on investing very very very long term like he did, though concepts such as 'discount to present value' are good to learn.

    Also good is "Trading on Volume" by Don Cassidy
    "Secrets for Profiting in Bull and Bear Markets" by Stan Weinstein
    "A Beginner's Guide to Day Trading Online" by Toni Turner
    "The Ultimate Trading Guide" by Pruitt and Hill
    "How I Made $2 Million in the Stock Market" by Nicholas Darvas

    each of the above books have a lesson or two to teach.
     

  8. The ones above plus the original "Market Wizards", and (surprised that) no one mentioned "Trading in the Zone" (Douglas) and The Disciplined Trader" (Douglas).....

    should read them early on IMHO...

    regards,

    may be because Douglas books are abstract to beginner.

    "Reminiscences of a Stock Operator" was a good read. Also try "Pit Bull" by Marty Schwartz. Its an autobiography of Marty's life as a trader, particularly in the S & P futures. The book gives you some good insights into what it takes to be a good trader and what those that rule the markets can do to you.
