Good Evening Reader.. Read these books

This weekend I have been reading a book 'Technical Analysis for Trading Professionals' by Constance Brown.

It is really really really a must read for any person who is serious on learning and understanding technical analysis.

Honestly, I am kicking myself for ordering the book so late since I am in technical analysis since long but better late than never. I would urge every one of you to BUY that BOOK and read. And I would really stress on the word BUY; donot try to search and download it. Its just not fair on the author who has taken so much work on writing a book that gets downloaded. I agree the price of the book is steep and world out to INR 2800; but u have to buy it. If u BUY it, u will have a value to it and you will read it.

So here is me again urging everyone who visits my site to read the book 'Technical Analysis for Trading Professionals' by Constance Brown.

And yes, there is no personal gain for me talking about that book. Its your call. I was on the site icharts.in where there was a nice forum for traders where everyone was enlisting their books or books they love to refer. Here are some my recommended books:
