    Are old books also good in order to learn technical trading mostly?Or do you need books from 2017. The problem i have with books is that the newer ones that are good are all bought up by wall street and the good information never reaches the little guy.

    So what do you guys think. Will the oldies be enough i have time to educate myself i`m young i just need to be on the right path.

    I never read a book on trading. I have just gone along, figuring it out as I go. The hard crusty way, not the cheap easy way out with spoilers and CliffsNotes.

    Only if you don't spend too much of your potential education time pasting overly long lists of books from the web into trading forums. ;)

    For myself, the books that directly helped me to make a living (together with a list of the very common mistakes I think it's essential for aspiring traders to learn to avoid) are listed in this post.

    (Then again, I said something similar to you in this thread over 9 months ago, and I doubt whether it was helpful there, either ... ).

  5. (trading) Books are good for squares.

    But if you really want to be a great trader...you have to slightly step off the beaten path and develop your own hunger, and brain, and mind, and intuition, and observations, -- and kind of create a dynamic, hybrid approach, or viewpoint,
    High-Five, Xela`

    You have to be an open, inquisitive, malleable yet stiff person to be a trader. -- If you're not like that...you might as well just work at a store or business.

    Far too many for a beginner.

    (As a weak opinion I will add that some on the list seem worse than worthless but time and efficient learning are my themes here).

    Side note: I recommend going through the posts of, and following: Lescor, Dustin, Xela... decide if they are your cup of tea.

    If you know Elite posters to be current winners, especially in your areas of intrest, I would follow them and ask them questions.

    And... as always... if you can find winning traders to talk with (mentors) this would be huge.

  10. Anyone interested in this book should read no later than the 6th edition. The reason being that the jerk who got the rights to the book after the original authors died did an excellent job of ruining a good book from the 7th edition on.
