A series of books from trader Tom Bulkowski focused on how you, too, can learn to become a full-time trader. The series is split into three different books, each detailing different fundamental techniques to hone your market knowledge and trading style: Book 1: Trading the Stock Market, ~231 pages. This is the basic introduction to trading the stock market detailing how the market functions, how to view and analyze it, and how to think about it. It ends with specific trades from Tom and anecdotes from other veteran traders that he has compiled into fascinating trading horror stories. Book 2: Value Investing, ~330 pages. This includes both buy-and-hold investing style (think Buffett) and position trading (PT). The author includes positional trading, because it's closer to buy and hold than other shorter-term trading styles. Many value investors these days are really position traders. Book 3: Swing and Day Trading, ~350 pages. This includes strategies for becoming a swing or day trader.
THOMAS N. BULKOWSKI is a successful investor with thirty years of experience in the stock market. He is also the author of the Wiley titles Encyclopedia of Candlestick Charts, Encyclopedia of Chart Patterns, Getting Started in Chart Patterns, Trading Classic Chart Patterns, and Visual Guide to Chart Patterns. Bulkowski is also a contributor to Active Trader, Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities, and other publications worldwide. Before earning enough from his investments to retire from his day job at age 36, Bulkowski was a hardware design engineer with Raytheon and a senior software engineer for Tandy Corporation.
