Most trading books explain the principles and philosophy of trading, and I have read hundreds of them. Very few give examples of trading systems that have an edge and show the equity curve of the system as it is traded through different market environments. Here are eight trading books that discuss several systematic ways to trade price action. In these books you will see examples of specific trading models with potential buy and sell signals and how they turned out historically. These are great trading books to start on your path to creating your own trading strategies with an edge. Some of the books on this list I found and others I wrote myself. Of course never implement any trading system without first understanding the risks involved and the potential for drawdowns in capital.
