Psychology of trading, Brett N. Steenbarger
Brett N. Steenbarger, a very easy and enjoyable to read as the author is both psychologist and a trader.
Very worthwhile reading on the subject of psychology and trading describing among many other useful insights the role of the bad patterns/ habits and the way to establish new patterns/ habits, replacing the old and dangerous patterns/ habits with the new patterns/ habits.
There are three book available at present:

The Psychology of trading - tools and techniques for minding the markets

Enhancing Traders Performance

The Daily Trading Coach - 101 lessons for becoming your own trading psychologist

All three books are very good to read.
The Daily Trading Coach is the latest book and contains some of the practical applications described in the previous too books, but in a shorter format of a "lesson", so if you are likely to buy only one of these books, I would probably recommend The Daily Trading Coach. These books are available on Amazon.
Wishing you to be a more relaxed and a better trader,

Re: Recommended Reading

Thinking, Fast and Slow, by Daniel Kahneman, though not directly related to trading the book describes the ways we take decisions and points to the strengths and weaknesses of "intuitive" and "statistical" way of making a judgement.
All said, it does encourage one to think, which is a more demanding and certainly a more profitable way of "doing" things, trading included.
For those who take time and effort to study this book the results might be very surprising, so please take some time and put some work to get the best out of this great book. Available on Amazon.
Trading demands clear thinking, hope this book will provide some insights and will assist a trader in achieving good profits by engaging our incredible potential of thinking "statistically".
Have a good read!

Harmonic Elliott Wave, The case of modification of R.N. Elliotts Impulsive Wave Structure, by Ian Copsey

As a useful introduction have a look at this article on the net;
http://www.harmonic-ewave.com/files/...e_Article2.pdf
Have studied that book years ago, it is good to refresh what is helpful.

Also have a look at the difference of an ABC corrective and a WXY structure.
http://elliottwave-forecast.com/tech...abc-structure/


Interesting when both approaches of the Impulsive and Corrective waves are applied together with some patterns and channels described by Bulkowki, Delta count, fibs and momentum indicators.

PS
I assume that people reading this thread are aware of books like, The Disciplined Trader, and Trading in the zone,by Mark Douglass, Intermarket Analysis by John Murphy, Elliott Wave Principle by Frost and Prechter, or Stene Nison on Japanese candlesticks, or indeed of many other classic books relating to trading.

Tom Williams, "The Undeclared Secrets That Drive The Stock Market" and "Master the Markets"

Very important reading if one desires to study VSA (Volume Spread Analysis).
Well written, good study of the subject, very much worth to spend time getting the insights that this approach offers, such as show of strength or show of weakness and continuation of either.

I would like to draw attention to some further reading on the subject related to VSA co-authored by Henry Pruden .
The titles of the articles; "Wyckoff Law and tests " and the other one is " Wyckoff Schematics: Visual templates for market timing decisions"
Please goggle to find them, print them and study the content carefully
The terminology in itself provides some valuable insights, eg: absorption, re-absorption and so on.

I would very much welcome some suggestion/s of book/s and articles on this subject that other traders found useful.

Please PM me or respond on this thread.

Profitable trading to all,

Mind over the Markets by James F Dalton - Updated edition

Mind over the Markets by James F Dalton - Updated edition

Good explanation of Market Profile principle.
I find that market profile, market statistic works well with the VSA, all related to volume and PA.

One needs to spend time studying them and working out how the correlation of these principles assist in making profitable trades.
VSA and Market profile have been used for some time, for me one does not exclude the other, they form an important part of my overall trading strategy.

Wishing all to have a great weekend,
