Well clearly some are better than others, but just a few hours of researching the books on amazon will give you a better feel. Also, you can immediately eliminate some of the books if you have a preference for fixed income, derivatives, equity, etc. My goal was to gain an inter-connected view of the markets so I thought it made sense to read about everything.

Yes I'm sure half the Amazon forest must be in his library.

Tiger on a serious note as research would you say your trading is better for all your reading?

Sounds a silly question but if you could perhaps summarise three sentences on what you gained from your extensive reading it would be educational for me.

I look at peoples faces and they all look like dorks to me.

Rather than reading a book I'd recommend the Investors Chronicle and the Economist. Read these publications with a view to digesting the subject material. Don't just read.


Having said that fundamental analysis is pretty useless if you want to trade the markets. Technical analysis is far superior imo.

FA is only good if you want to trade company shares, read balance sheets and look at company earnings with market stats etc.


Finally, there is no such thing as best as there is no one FA. Life is not like the Matrix and I suspect you aren't exactly the one looking for the holy grail... There are 00s of FA. More a case of what will do. Suits you sir...


Just incase I'm wrong I'd be grateful if you let me know when you do find it...
"Because most people don't understand the fundamentals and lack the patients and intelligence required to master the art of comprehending anything"

Yes ,and most of them can't spell worth a damn either ...spelling 101 for you petal ..here we go ..."Patience"
