Finance ‘fact, but fictionalised’ books

Recommended Posts

I don’t know the word for it but I wanted to start a thread about books which are routed in fact but they have a better flow for reading, kind of like ‘flash boys’ but Michael Lewis which is the most well known I would imagine. 

Which interesting finance and trading related books have you read and would recommend? 

Maybe they don’t need to ALL be specifically like that but any trading books you find interesting. 

I am currently reading Dark Pool by Scott Patterson and it’s very very interesting. I would recommend reading or getting from Amazon or the library if you can. Paperback is a few quid and it’s an interesting read. All about how these matching engines started and pooled liquidity away from the main exchanges. It gives you a good understanding of the “plumbing” behind it all. Also makes more sense when looking at the market. 

I’m the sort of person who would like to read as much around a topic as possible and I think it makes you a better well rounded trader to understand the back end too. 

Has anyone else got some books to recommend please?

I like the concept of that review Casey as it looks like it explains the CORE concept of technical analysis. I’m always a fan of the why, rather than the how, and if I believe the why then I trust myself to figure out the how... 

for example WHY support and resistance works, rather than just how to use it. Why movingaverageswork rather than how etc etc.
