My Reading List – Top Trading & Investing Books I have Read Over the Years (Updated)


Here are some of the better books among the 200+ that I have read over the years, so if you want to learn the basics & foundations of trading by yourself, these might come in handy. I have also condensed most of these concepts into my 3-hour “Trading Foundation Workshop“.

However, do note that trading for real is very different from textbook examples. If you are new to trading, you will realise the difference once you start trading.

If you are serious about learning this skill on your own, make sure you finish all these books before you start putting your real money into the market. That was what I did when I started my trading career. This is just the bare minimum, and anything less is likely to end in failure. Even if you finish reading all these books, it is unlikely that you will be able to trade well.

There are many things which cannot be learnt from books, such as “market feel”, behavioral analysis, applied price action, and real trading psychology. These can only be learnt by paying “tuition fees” to the market (paper trading or demo trading is a waste of time), or learning from a real trader who has mastered these skills and get them to guide you. Investing in education is a small price to pay to help you avoid the costly mistakes in trading.

Without further ado, here are the list of books:

Note: I will continue to add to this list as I discover and read more good books. Feel free to recommend any books not on this list! Thanks! 😀
