Smile Complete Beginner

I've just registered in the forum and really want to get into trading. I have been reading lots of the guides through the various postings.

Can anyone recommend a good beginners book I can buy for the complete novice?

Thanks

BioHazard I would recommend 'Reminiscence of a stock operator' although its not related to SB it is a great beginners guide to introducing this new world! Hope this Helps!!

Bio,

"New Fibonacci Trader" by Robert Fischer,but pay attention to the caveats he attaches to the use of tools/indicators and indeed his overall opinion of the market and it's movement. The emphasis is on risk and your tolerance for it and the use of tools within that context.

Hope you find it useful. "Stock operator" is good,but read it afterwards and think about the psychology of risk when you do.
Add Ricard Wyckoff to your list and you have a good core to learn from.

Cheers
