One of the most common questions I get is in regards to what books I recommend for learning how to day trade stocks, or any asset class for that matter. While it is a great question to be asking as it shows an openness to learning and taking trading seriously, there's a bit deeper of an answer than what appears on the surface. In order to answer this question in the most clear way, I first need to set up some overarching context regarding various learning strategies that can (and should) be used when developing new strategies or just learning for the first time. There are so many books out there which quickly prompts the feelings of being overwhelmed; however, the good news is, there are actually only a select few types of books that will be effective in teaching you what need to be understood. Let's do some looking into the various strategies to learn, and then it'll make a whole lot more sense on why the books I refer to are indeed the best.
