Trading Books
Written by Andy

Here a list of some of my favourite trading and investing books, hoping someone finds something useful in this list.

These behavioural economics books contain some great lessons of how the mind works, which I find useful when it comes to portfolio management. Recommended reading in my opinion.

  • Predictably Irrational, by Dan Ariely
  • Fooled by Randomness, by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
  • Freakonomics, by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner
  • Misbehaving, The Making of Behavioural Economics, by Richard H. Thaler
  • Thinking, Fast and Slow, by Daniel Kahneman.

If you want to get good at technical analysis, learn all it’s inside this book:

This section are classic investing books, some are timeless, some dated but still relevant at many levels.

  • The Little Book of Behavioral Investing, by James Montier
  • One Up On Wall Street, by Peter Lynch
  • The Most Important Thing, by Howard Marks
  • Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits, by Philip A. Fisher and Kenneth L. Fisher
  • Intelligent Investor, by Benjamin Graham

Slightly off-topic

  • How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big, by Scott Adams (Very light reading from the author of the Dilbert cartoons, a bit of putting things into perspective type of book)
  • Influence, The Psychology of Persuasion, by Robert B Cialdini (2021 version).
