Reminiscences of a Stock Operator: Edwin Lefevre
One of my all time favorites, this book follows the journey of a speculator from his beginnings in the bucket shops of New England, all the way to his professional days on Wall Street. Written in the early 1920s, this book is easily relatable to anyone who finds themselves speculating on Wall Street.
The Disciplined Trader: Mark Douglas
Although commonplace in today’s trading world, this book was among the first of its time to tackle the psychology of trading; highlighting how our thoughts are limiting our trading success. After reading this book, how you effect your trading performance will become a lot more evident.
Market Wizards: Interviews with Top Traders: Jack Schwager
A collection of interviews with successful stock market traders. What I like about this book the most is you actually get to “get in the minds” so to speak, of successful traders who do this day in and day out.
One Up On Wall Street: Peter Lynch
A book that shows how the average investor might actually be “one up on wall street”. Mr. Lynch believes that the average investor can pick stocks just as well, if not better, than a Wall Street investor and he breaks down his reasoning in this book. Among other things, he shows readers how to read a company’s financials and how you can find your next “ten-bagger”.
The Intelligent Investor: Benjamin Graham
This book is long and a very dry read but if you believe in value investing, then this book is for you.
