I want to get started in share trading. I m a complete novice, so Ive purchased the ASX trading book to get up to speed with terms and what not, and booked myself into the beginner trade seminar session Macquarie is holding later this month.
I m interesting in trends and the maths: I have a maths background from Uni that I would like to use. Ive done some basic research and have come up with a couple of titles, I was wondering what people thought about them.
First involves the Elliott Wave principle or something like "Sell and Sell Short" by Alexander Elder. I would like to model something, both books have reviews saying they are great for beginners and involve some models, but I m really unsure which I should be reading (first or at all). I was just going to go out and purchase the latter, but at almost $100, I would be interested in hearing what people thought.
Apologies if Ive used the wrong terms some where, Ill learn quickly
