Thinking of something to do while stuck at home in quarantine? Cryptowatch’s The Dude has you covered with his handy list of 19 educational and pertinent trading-related reads.
The Dude is a former pit trader and used to operate his own commodity trading firm, so he is no stranger to the topic of trading. His list of long reads includes books on risk, randomness, candlesticks and legendary traders.
We recommend starting with the trading pit veteran’s favorite book, called “Against the Gods,” and then check out the 1932 biography of Jesse Livermore—who was one of the greatest market speculators that ever lived.
All trading books link to Amazon shopping pages. Enjoy.
