Hi guys, with all books there's always the good and the not so good. Rather than getting out there and paying for every book under the sun I thought I'd ask for the best recommendations as I'm sure many have read alot of titles and will by now have distinguished the better from the rest.
I would appreciate if the titles are available from the borders.com.au online site, but if it's an absolute gem then i'm sure i could amazon it some time.
Currently some quick googling I've got one or two authors and titles i'm curious of picking up (pref by midnight as there's a 30% off online borders books voucher i have).
These are namely by Steve Nison and Dr Alexander Elder:
Steve Nison : Japanese candlestick charting techniques
Alexander Elder: I was eyeing "Come into my trading room" but his "trading for a living" book seems to get quite the fanfare. However I'm not sure if trading for a living is abit too old/outdated, in the sense that does come into my trading room supercede trading for a living? Or would buying both books bring two sets of completely diff experiences/knowledge?
I have also seen some recommendations out there for:
Trade Chart Patterns Like the Pros by Suri Duddella
I currently only purchase shares in and out of work. I am trying to gain knowedlge both from a beginners to a more advanced level as I'm interested in putting in the hard yards to equip myself with 1) the right psychology and awareness of this 2) technical and whatever fundamental analysis skills and theory i need and 3) i'm interested in learning how to understand and develop my own trading system, strategies etc.
That said any books you'd recommend? If there are any that also work for other forms of investing not just shares e.g. forex or cfds (e.g. more so the technical analysis space) I'd be more than welcome to hear them as one day when i have mastered one area reasonably e.g. shares, i'd like to move onto forex etc.
