Apprenticed Investor: Reading Is Fundamental
With that in mind, here is part one of my planned two-part introductory course in markets and investing -- perfect for the Apprenticed Investor:
Introduction to Investing
Any one of these books will give you insight into investing and the markets. All three will make an essential base for future studies:
Schwager interviewed market legends at the height of their success. What makes the book so worthwhile are the consistent themes that evolve from currency traders, mutual fund managers, commodities traders, hedge fund managers. Regardless of what is being traded, there are related motifs that run throughout.What results is not a "How to trade" book; instead, it is a book about "How to think about trading." This has become a seminal book on trading and investing. I actually re-read Market Wizards every five years -- it is that good. Wizards was so well received by the financial community that the same author put out The New Market Wizards. Whether you read one or both of these books, you will have knowledge of the market from both the trader's and the investor's perspectives.
