Now I know what you might have said to yourself as you read the above title…

People have often asked me to compile a list of books that have helped shape my development as a trader, and so I’ve been meaning to compile that list for quite some quite some time now.
It is widely known that trading is difficult, but, to my mind, there is a misunderstanding as to why. It is not difficult because it is hard to read the markets, analyze what’s moving, and build a set of rules to take advantage of whatever is perceived as opportunities. It is difficult because it is hard to develop an aptitude to weather the ups and downs of this profession.
There are a couple of questions that I didn’t get to answer fairly well during the Q&A session of my presentation at the Tradersfest event organized by Rayner at tradingwithrayner.com. So I thought I’d address that here, and, think out loud for a few minutes.
