    I am curious as to what trading book, tape, class or guru influences your trading today the most. I think it would be interesting and helpful to know.

    Mine as you probably guessed is Don Miller. It is his Emini course that influenced me the most.

    "Education of a Speculator" - Niederhoffer

    I think this is a definite must read for this business. The chapter on horse racing probably influenced my trading style more than anything else I have read.
