Towards Trading Success…

Here is a list of content that I have found useful in my currency trading journey. I am yet to find success and still on a demo-account, but do have high hopes of being part of the elite group of disciplined, successful traders.

First book:


  • Trading in the Zone by Mark Douglas.
  • This book is an essential first step in building trading psychology.



  • Open an account on BabyPips, complete the free course to gain a basic idea of forex trading. Make sure you thoroughly understand the Pre-school, KG and Elementary sections – the lessons are self contained thus you do not need any extra Googling while you are at it. And do skim through the other sections as well.



  • Chat With Traders (by Aaron Fifield)
  • Desire to Trade (by Etienne Crete)
  • Market Life (by Adam H. Grimes)

The art of “Tape Reading“:

    4. One Good Trade (Mike Bellafiore of SMB) – Learning from others
