Economic announcements, and a acim Along with plenty of commentary and analysis. One of the most useful aspects of the almanac is its ability to help you identify specific trends that tend to happen on a yearly or cyclical basis and assess the probability of whether or not a similar trend could take place in the current period.
The Commodity Trader’s Almanac is a great companion to the above recommended book. It has all the same great content as the Stock Trader’s Almanac but for the commodities. For commodities traders it is a priceless reference. For those who don’t dabble in commodities it can still give great insights into relationships between commodity and equities prices and patterns. Definitely worth picking up and both this and its companion are frequent go to books in my daily analysis work.
Whether trader, long-term investor, or both technical analysis is a must for your toolbox. This is the best modern all-around technical analysis books out there and my personal copy has so many “post-it” notes sticking out of it that they should probably be numbered like pages. This book is more like a reference textbook for a college course on technical analysis than a “book” in the usual sense. It is packed with all things technical and countless traders have been using it for over a decade now for very good reason. If you have a question about any technical indicator or concept in technical analysis you can most likely find the answer here. The only Technical Analysis (TA) reference book you will ever need. Not much else need be said about this book. Outstanding.
Overhyped title aside, this is a great investment book folks. Fund manager Joel Greenblatt has been beating the Dow (with returns of 50 percent a year) for more than a decade. In this insightful book Greenblatt brings you into a world of special situations from which you can profit.
The author’s approach is an event-driven one and he gives an outstanding overview of these special situations and how you can take advantage of the fact that they are so often overlooked by other investors.
