A few days ago, my little girl had the following conversation with me:
Daughter: I can always tell which Dad is mine.
Me: How's that?
Daughter: You're the one who's always reading.
It's true. I read all the time. And last night, I scanned my shelves of trading and technical analysis books and picked up Trading In the Zone, which I've read many times before. (It's in my list of recommended reading.)
Most books about trading are totally useless, but there are a few gems. And those you find are gems, I suggest you read over and over and over again. Highlight them; think about them; absorb them. Because as I grow – and you do as well – as a trader, the book's message will be richer and more meaningful.
