Professional Stock Trading - Mark Conway & Aaron Behle
This is a technical book for those of you who believe in technical analysis (stocks, futures, options, etc.) and are looking for a book that will give you a good guidance and jumpstart.
Many code samples are included in the book, making it a real valued resource for those that are using the TradeStation platform and would like to make some shortcuts in understanding technical methods, technical analysis, programming and research aspects that will probably save you lot of time.
The book describes in details technical methods for designing a trading system using the TradeStation platform, including lot of snippest codes that helps to generate various signals on the analyzed stock.
The book should be used side-by-side with a trading platform, otherwise it will be too difficult to follow, interpret and to make a full use of it. A basic knowledge of EasyLanguage (TradeStation programming language) is also required for better understanding the samples and in order to be able to make them work for you, since the provided samples might require some adaptations to the latest version of TradeStation.
Although I have not made money from that book yet (still reading, sorry, and hey I'm calling it "yet" meaning I beliebe it will come) - I believe it to be a great resource for anyone who is going to use automatic trading.
