If an absolute beginner

If an absolute beginner an adequate understanding and scope of trading terminology and trading landscape will be lacking. To extract maximum benefit from any first book it may prove productive to first consult a basic introduction. Review Babypips School of Pipsology for suitabilty. -http://www.babypips.com/school.

I wouldn't consider anything having to do with Forex to be a proper introduction to the markets and to trading. Rather I suggest the following:

The Nature of Risk by Mamis
Why Smart People Make Big Money Mistakes by Belsky and Gilovich
The Wall Street Journal Guide to Understanding Money & Investing by Morris et al

Here here!


I'd add that Phylo's post implies that forex is the only/best market to trade and that Babypips is the best place to learn how to do it. Newbies would do well to consider all available markets - not just forex - as it's a market with many downsides. Babypips won't tell you what these are as the site has a vested interest in promoting all things forex. If you want a balanced view, an absolute beginner would do far better by staying put right here on T2W.

If I may...

It does not matter what you read..

If at the end you do not bring yourself forward and create a system which relates to your personality you will not make it .

Learning technique from others can be dangerous, they create convictions, concepts, especially if they give you initial positive results, than those concept are difficult to shake off, in doing so they might create further concepts.

I am not saying you should not learn from others, what I am saying is after you do, use it to find your own way, without it you will not excel in it.
