Craig Fisher, Portfolio Analyst from The Chartist, has broken out of the beginner's cycle (finally!) Craig has put together a list of his top 5 stock trading books. These are the trading books he wishes he had found earlier and that he goes back to on a regular bases.
As my trading experience grows I am tending to read less stock market trading books, but still enjoy doing so. In my formative years, I read as much as I could but still would not profess to having ‘read them all’ by any stretch of the imagination – far from it. As a beginner I tended to focus on the Australian share market and consequently Australian books. It was probably also a function of price as they were significantly more affordable than those from the US. If I had my time over, I would research books a lot more and not let price be so much of a buying criteria, as my shelves are full of disappointing books that really don’t teach you much of what really matters.
