    Wow. You would think that a site dedicated to people making their own way in the financial markets would encourage sourcing knowledge from everywhere. Warren buffet credits much of his success to the fact he reads many books a year. many other quite successful people are known to be avid readers. Most of the.

    You cannot lose when you open a book. Ignorance is the enemy of a trader and thing about ignorance is that if you are ignorant, you will never know it.

    Ok ok ok

    No one should read

    Everyone is a poser

    Certainly don't listen to knowledgeable posters

    Everyone stop reading right now

    Just stop it

    No more reading, anyone

    I would add Ed Seykota's Trading Tribe, and his website, especially the FAQ's.

    I don't remember what all I read... I do remember I enjoyed the story books... Stock Market Wizards, Market Wizards, etc.
    Also I recommend the series by Adrienne Laris Toghraie, Trading on target. You can know all you wanna know, but if you don't understand your psyche you'll be a great analyst and not a trader

    I think that with a list of books that long, he might benefit from a link to The Dewey Decimal Classification System. It's a shame that my Google is broken otherwise I'd help. :D
