10 Trading Books that are Required Reading

Here are the required reading recommendations by Larry @LMT978 that can create the foundation of your trading library. Larry lead in my online poll as the most helpful trader on twitter up until the last few hours. He has studied trend following for many years and I actually knew him from Facebook before twitter and he has been featured multiple times on Michael Covel’s Trend Following Podcast. He has been a systematic momentum trader for 20 years. He trades both from the long and short side. He trades price only not fundamentals. He trades long term momentum, breakouts & and Trend Following programs. He does give Skype Consultations as well.

Here are the specific trading book list with links that he suggests as required reading and I have read nine of these eleven and plan on reading the others. I agree, the ones I have read on this list are some of the best, showing the full dynamic process of trading: Psychology, risk management, and system development.
