I'll be adding folders regularly. So far I have one folder of books, and a folder with some series 7 material. It's For Dummies practice software and text. Enjoy.

Alright, I think it's time for a "Recommended Readings by HSM Members" thread or something similar.

Please make it a poll; I'd be very interested in knowing which books got the most votes as well having a medium where members can constantly suggest books and the like.

Mods? Please respond before I am forced to spam your Inbox.

No prob. I'll upload Steve Nison's books soon too. And others like "The Encyclopedia of Chart Patterns". In fact, I think I'll start a thread for book requests in the cocktail lounge or education, whichever is more appropriate.

Technical Analysis books

Hello I am Hotstockmarkets user magichands and I am 15 years old. I am truly blessed to realize that the stock market is a very alluring subject, you just cant seem to stay away from the books or the potential for money. Luckily, it isnt a gamble like everyone says it is. There are patterns among other things that usually reveal good stocks. Im learning as much as I can, reading beginner books and now I think I can move on to more specific stock strategies and knowledge.


So now that I gave you some background information, can you help me choose a suitable book for technical analysis?


Thanks a million in advance, and perhaps I could make a million later

Most of the beginner stuff can be found online at sites like investopedia.com. TA for dummies is a decent book that covers all the basics. For books about candlesticks get anything written by Steve Nison.

So many books...but which ones are still relevant?

I'm a freshmen at GaTech and I just happened into a deep dark sectoin of the library where I stumbled upon tonsss of financial related books. There's topics ranging from TA to a breakdown of all economic indicators to Graham's Security Analysis. Some of the books seem quite dated, and I couldn't help but wonder if some of the information in those books was still relevant in today's crazy markets. So my question to all you is, are there certain topics of the financial world that have totally changed over the past 20 or so years? And is there a certain year as to which I shouldn't read past due to the change of economic policies? Thanks guys!

P.S. I'm not totally oblivious to the obvious changes that have happened over the past couple years. I just wanted to know in general, what all has changed.

Yes there are some changes today compared to that of Graham's day but the philosophy provided behind the books are still a staple of every investors/traders today.

Federal Securities Laws were passed in the 1930s and then Sarbanes-Oxley in 2002.

An academic would tell you that anything you read prior to either of these dates should at least be cross-referenced with the major provisions contained therein. But honestly, there most likely won't be much different as the major elements of corporate finance as we understand it today have not changed much at all since the inception of the corporate form. And most books on finance aren't really concerning themselves with the legal aspects of it anyway.

For the beginner I highly recommend Charting Made Easy by John J. Murphy. It breaks down technical analysis into an easy to understand way. It will lay down a solid foundation for you to build your knowledge on.
