4. Naked Forex by Walter Peters ($46.35)

Naked forex

If you aren’t familiar with the term “naked trading” we don’t blame you because this was done before traders started using calculators and computers. There was no technical analysis, no price predictions… just naked trading based on the price chart. If you don’t like to overcomplicate things, but still want to be a trader, this is a book for you.

5. Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets John Murphy ($32.19)

tech analysis

Opposed to naked trading, TA seems to be a lot more reliable for most traders that want to keep things tight and disciplined. There is no consensus about technical analysis though. Different traders use different methods with more or less success but one thing is certain – technical analysis works and you should probably know a thing or two about it. This book is probably the best starting point for that.

6. Trading in the Zone by Mark Douglas ($38.39)


Trading is considered a science by most but there is a lot more to it than just looking at the numbers and placing orders. Discipline and self-control are very important in trading. Even the best traders had bad days because they acted on emotion and made a few bad calls because of that. This book will help you avoid those situations and teach you the true realities of risk.

7. The Art of Currency Trading by Brent Donnelly ($33.43)

Brent Donnelly packed 20 years of professional trading in this book. In his own words, he did that because there was some information that every other book lacked and he wanted to bridge the knowledge gap. You can say with confidence that he did a good job at that as well. The book is very informative and touches on a lot of important subjects related to currency trading. It’s always good to take advice from an expert and this book is your chance to do just that.
