Trading System Educational Books

Can anyone recommend any books that go through some simple trading system set ups?

I’m not looking for a 1 inch thick book of trading basics with one or two strategies, I’m after a book that only has strategies.


Entry and Exit Confessions of a Champion Trader : 52 Ways A Professional Speculator Gets In And Out Of The Stock, Futures And Forex Markets Kevin J Davey


Thanks ProfesorPips, I’ve just ordered it from Amazon. A book with a name that long better be good!


Kevin Davey won international champions in trading :wink:

anything by Kevin Davey is always good, and helpful (he’s also a very nice guy, and willing to help people without trying to promote himself or sell anything, at all)

Do you think reading books makes people traders?
i think it is to spend your time on other sources.

No, reading books doesn’t make traders. Reading books makes educated traders.

You can read ‘’52 Ways A Professional Speculator Gets In And Out Of The Stock’’ to enhance your trading ideas but besides that you can watch a video tutorial for the sake of the enhancement of knowledge.

Thanks Rosie, I already have that book in order :slightly_smiling_face:

You want strategies only? There a zillions of strategies that have an edge yet only 5% of traders succeed. Why? Read 'Trading for a Living by Alex Elder but DO NOT skip pages 1-27 like all the losing crowd.

Thanks the_dentist

That must be a good book as someone has previously suggested it so it’s already on my Amazon wish list. Also, I’m happy my question has bought you out of forum silence, your first post in 3 years!

Many Thanks
