One of the trading room subscribers recently asked me about trading books that I recommend. Instead of replying by email, I thought best to reply here. This way you can all benefit and give your opinion.
Best trading books
These are books that will help you. These are all autobiographies or biographies. I feel this is the best way to educate yourself and grow as a trader - learn from someone who has been there and done it. I also think these kind of books are more interesting to read.

There are obviously many more good trading books but I want to keep the list short.
