Crash Proof 2.0 completely changed my view on investing. It's a must read if you want to understand QE1,2,3 and what is going on in the economy.

SHOCK EXCHANGE examines the U.S. economy and the stock market through the eyes of the grassroots basketball team in Brooklyn, NY. And just like group's Executive Director suspected, with their ability to spot trends before adults, inner-city kids from Brooklyn knew more about investing than he, Peter Lynch, Bill Miller, and any hedge fund manager or Wall Street analyst on the planet.

For me its a toss up between Market Wizards by Jack Schwager and The daily trading coach by Brett Steenbarger. I try to build upon their work in my own book The Emotionally Intelligent Investor: How self-awareness, empathy and intuition drive performance

"How the Market Makers Extract Millions of Dollars a Day" by Martin Cole, is head & shoulders above other investing & finance books I have read. If I had read it before the many others, i would have saved time & money, preserved some gains & avoided many losses. This book explains how the market makers exploit the fear and greed based methods of common investors & traders to accumulate shares at depressed prices then force the price up to sell those shares for a profit-- all day long. Cole explains how this
activity is reflected on daily charts and how to identify and trade the patterns which
forecast the next move. This book, along with Tony Oz', The Stock Trader, Mike
books on trend and Steve Nison's on candlesticks gave me more than the other 114
books & DVDs combined. Knowing how to find and trade trends, reversals, range breakouts and support are all that is needed to day trade successfully. Jim DeAno
my living now. Jim DeAno
