Reminiscences Of A Stock Operator
First published in 1923, Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is the
fictionalized biography of Jesse Livermore, one of the greatest
speculators who ever lived. Now, more than 80 years later, it remains
the most widely read, highly recommended investment book ever written.
Generations of investors
have found that it has more to teach them about themselves and other
investors than years of experience in the market. They have also
discovered that its trading advice and keen analyses of market price
movements ring as true today as in 1923.
Jesse Livermore won and lost tens of millions of dollars playing the
stock and commodities markets during the early 1900s. So potent a market
force was he in his day that, in 1929, he was widely believed to be the
man responsible for causing the Crash.
Originally reviewed in The New York Times as a nonfiction book,
Reminiscences of a Stock Operator vividly recounts Livermore’s mastery
of the markets from the age of 14. Always good at figures, he learns,
early on, that he can predict which way the numbers will go. Starting
out with an investment of five dollars, he amasses a fortune by his
early twenties and establishes himself as a major player on the Street.
Bullish in bear markets, and bearish among bulls, he claims that only
suckers gamble on the market. The trick, he advises, is to protect
yourself by balancing your investments, and selling big on the way down.
Livermore goes broke three times, but he comes back each time feeling
richer for the learning experience.
Offering profound insights into the motivations, attitudes, and feelings
shared by every investor, Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is a
timeless instructional tale that will enrich the lives – and the
portfolios – of today’s traders as it has those of generations past.

The Signal and the Noise: Why So Many Predictions Fail — but Some Don't by Nate Silver
My description: in my opinion, some of the best books regarding algorithmic trading are not books wrote for this intention. This one is for me a great example and read, there are lots of new ideas that can be used in quantitative finance area. I like too much the "prediction paradox" described below, since when we talk about future no one has monopoly on truth.Amazon description: "Drawing on his own groundbreaking work, Silver examines the world of prediction, investigating how we can distinguish a true signal from a universe of noisy data. Most predictions fail, often at great cost to society, because most of us have a poor understanding of probability and uncertainty. Both experts and laypeople mistake more confident predictions for more accurate ones. But overconfidence is often the reason for failure. If our appreciation of uncertainty improves, our predictions can get better too. This is the “prediction paradox”: The more humility we have about our ability to make predictions, the more successful we can be in planning for the future."

The Complete TurtleTrader-Michael W. Covel
What happens when ordinary people are taught a system to make extraordinary money?
Dennis made a fortune on Wall Street by investing according to a few
simple rules. Convinced that great trading was a skill that could be
taught to anyone, he made a bet with his partner and ran a classified ad
in the Wall Street Journal looking for novices to train. His
recruits, later known as the Turtles, had anything but traditional Wall
Street backgrounds; they included a professional blackjack player, a
pianist, and a fantasy game designer. By the time the experiment ended,
Dennis had made a hundred million dollars from his Turtles and created
one killer Wall Street legend.
Intermarket Trading Strategies explains how markets interact and
influence each other and how intermarket analysis can be used to
forecast future equity and index price movements by introducing custom
indicators and intermarket trading systems.
Single market technical analysis indicators were designed in the 80s for
national markets, and are no longer sufficient for analyzing the global
market dynamics. This book reveals how you can combine intermarket with
classic technical techniques to develop profitable hybrid systems or
improve on existing ones.
Divided into two parts, part one begins with a discussion of the basic
principles of Intermarket analysis and the benefits of portfolio
diversification by including uncorrelated assets such as commodities and
foreign currencies. It goes on to explain the concept of correlation
and the basic assumptions used before demonstrating the linear
regression method used for predicting one security based on its
correlation with related markets. A variety of custom intermarket
indicators are presented and explanations are given as to how each one
can be used within the framework of a trading system, including eight
new custom Intermarket indicators published for the first time in this
Part two uses the concepts presented in part one to develop intermarket
trading systems to trade popular markets like US and European stock
Index futures, FOREX and Commodities. Techniques for developing a
trading system and evaluating the test results are presented along with
suggested methods of avoiding curve fitting and the illusion of
excellence created by optimization. Stop-loss and other money management
techniques are also discussed. Finally a brief introduction to neural
network systems explains the basic principles of this alternative
approach for designing trading systems.
A total of twenty nine conventional and five neural network trading
systems, appropriate for long and short term and even day trading, are
provided to trade Gold, the S&P ETF (SPY), S&P e-mini futures,
DAX and FTSE futures, Gold and Oil stocks, Commodities, Sector and
International ETF, the Yen and the Euro. Finally a dynamic asset
allocation timing strategy which would systematically keep the portfolio
moving into the strongest asset classes or sectors, enhancing the
return characteristics while decreasing the overall volatility, is also
included. The metastock code for all systems is provided in order to
test and paper trade the system on more recent data before you move from
the computer to the trading desk.
