I'd say my favorite trading books to help on my Recommended Reading List are:
  1. Contrarian Investment Strategies: The Psychological Edge
    Shows analysts really don't have a clue so I track what they are saying in my newsletter and often look for major changes in their direction for clues.

  2. T echnical Analysis of Stock Trends
    Edwards and Magee is considered one of the bibles of technical analysis. I use it often to help me pick buy and sell targets for stock in my newsletter "explore portfolio."
