Following is a list of books and other resources that have helped shape the trader that I have become. I hope they inspire and teach you as much as they have helped me.  As you click on these links you will put money in my pocket (ye are warned).  I want to make it clear that these truly are the very resources that have helped me.  If it is listed here, I personally recommend it.

Recommended Courses

These are courses and people that I have either taken or I have had the priviledge of knowing those that teach them, and I have concluded that they are honest knowledgeable people.  These guys are traders.  They trade what they teach every single day.

Craig Harris’ Market Flow Course – Learn how to identify the way the market flows to maximize wins and minimize losses.   Trade with the flow of the market.  His free videos give you some great information. If nothing else, go here for the great free information.

Chris Lori’s Complete Forex Course – Chris is a CTA that manages actual money for large investors from around the world.  Like Craig, he trades everyday.  Chris has an incredible understanding of price action and how money flows between the institutions.  If you are serious about trading then you must consider taking his FX course and his “Inside the Banks” course at least.  You will not waste your money here.

Shoot’s Pro Course at tradingapples.com – Don’t let the name fool you.  Though this guy doesn’t trade Forex, he is a master at support and resistance.  He trades a lot of RIMM and AAPL, and makes it look effortless.  His entries are very similar to Chris Lori’s entries, they just have a different point of view.  Oh I almost forgot:  the course is probably the least expensive course you are going to find that actually has some value to it.  I think it is a $50 course.  If you decide to take it, make sure you go over the support and resistance section several times until you see it like he explains it.  He also has a great explanation of the interaction between the bulls and the bears at these support and resistance points in the market.
