That's true Rock....somehow i've tried to select an indicator to support my biasness. I'm planning to get that book but not sure if the "Disciplined Trader" is a better one. What do you think?

cheers,
I haven't read DT, but several of the other traders in the Puretick.com trading room have said Trading in the Zone is the way to go - I found it very useful and reread parts of it regularly. High Probability Trading by Marcel Link is also good. Hope that helps.

Art Simpson (excerpted Phantom of the Pits)

"Herein is the key to being a successful trader. I have learned this over and over again in my trading career. I haven't found one trader to tell me what I am going to tell you. The reason for our agreement to give something back is that all of these big losers are doomed from the start unless they are given the knowledge of what the market can do to them. The blame is within their own responsibility and not anyone else's fault."

Don't know if it has been listed. Japaneese candlestick charting techniques by Steve Nieson.
This has been a great book, it is the traders bible.
