Quant Book recommendations?
I’d be very interested to hear from others in this group about any books that they would recommend, or avoid, on the subject of developing trading systems.
I am currently reading Stridsman’s “Trading Systems that Work: Building and Evaluating Effective Trading Systems” (McGraw-Hill, 2000). I have one or two other books on the subject by the likes of Perry Kaufman and J Welles Wilder – but I’m always interested on any more recent writing on the subject.
I would widely recommend AVAfx’s own “Forex Strategies”, which features professional, life-tested rules of thumb to trading forex, indexes and commodities. You can get the book for free when at http://www.avafx.com/Ebook/
On that note… any good books that are in digital form? So I can download it to my iPad, PC,. or eBook reader?
I’ve been able to build up a good portfolio of my programming texts and pdf manuals, but wanted to add some ‘light reading’ 🙂 Looking to replace my outdated books like Handbook of Fixed Income Securities …
《Beyond Technical Analysis: How to Develop and Implement a Winning Trading System》 (Wiley Finance)
—–Thanks for the recommendation. Chande’s book does look quite interesting.
Still waiting for AVA fx to e-mail me their book
I’d have to recommend “Trade your way to financial freedom” by Van K. Tharp. He adresses the various building blocks of a sound strategy. I think I have read it atleast three times.
I’d agree – Tharp’s book is definitiely worth reading.
thanks for the book suggestion. Can I use the concepts in this book with any forex software? Are you using the strategies outlined in the book?
NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!
