    Default Recommended Reads

    Does anyone have any books or magazines to recommend? I need something that is easy for a beginner to understand. I am reading the school here, so I would really prefer something that talks about more trading systems/methods and trading psychology.

    I haven't read any books yet, I am just scrounging the internet for information/answers. I would be interested in something on trading psychology and money management, for myself.

    I would like to hear some recommendations myself. I am looking for just about anything that an experienced trader would deem helpful.

    I'm new to trading too. I found running through the School of Pipsology taught me a fair bit about the basics concepts of Forex.

    Kathy Lien's "Day Trading and Swing Trading the Currency Market" is a good read for information on fundamental analysis and the markets ... there are some methods there that I dont necessarily subscribe to, but the market analysis information is great.

    "The Way of the Turtle" is a must read for anyone starting to trade in any market. It doesn't cover anything about FX, but it is a crucial read for systems development/back testing.
