Trade the trader book review by www.doitinvest.comOne more book about trading various financial assets… Shouldn’t the world be tired about these?

Nothing is better than continuous education. And in this respect, we at doitinvest.com did read and review quite a lot of books in the technical analysis field lately.

What is the blend between mass psychology and statistcis which allows you to make money from analysing the markets? What are the main assumptions behind technical analysis and how well do they stand the test of practice? and so on.Read More »“Technical Analysis: The Complete Resource for Financial Market Technicians” – by Julie R.
