More about Trader-X

Most of this has not been updated in the past 12 months - I will try to make updates in 2009.

Please note, there are several other sites and blogs using the name Trader-X. I am not associated with any of them. I do not sell anything (no books, no "stock picking" services, no software), and I have no other active blogs.


ABOUT ME:

> Blogger Profile
> Q & A with Trader-X
> My interview on StockTickr blog
> My interview on TraderInterviews.com
> My interview on Victoria's blog
> First Things First
> Beware the Trader-X name on books and products
> My Top 20 movies...
> Trader-X on Technorati

Regarding email, I am usually slow to respond. If you have a trading question you should post it in "Comments" - I will respond faster, and you get the benefit of having other people respond too (usually). If you still wish to email me, the suffix is gmail (dot com), and the prefix is trader-x blog (remove the dash, no spaces).


RECOMMENDED READING (non-trading):

Motivational:
> The T.A.D. Principle - it could change your life
> Biscuits, Fleas, and Pump Handles (Zig Ziglar, audio)

Both of these books are by Ben Mezrich, and are very entertaining - especially to traders and "wanna-be" traders! I suggest you start with "Bringing Down The House", which is nothing short of a classic. And then read "Busting Vegas", which is also a great book.
> Bringing Down the House
> Busting Vegas

And, if you have not read "The Da Vinci Code", check it out before you see the movie. You might start with the first book that introduces the main character - "Angels & Demons".
> Angels & Demons
> The Da Vinci Code

My favorite Grisham:
> A Time to Kill
> King of Torts
> The Broker

Interested in learning more about Buddhism?
> Awakening the Buddha Within : Tibetan Wisdom for the Western World
> Awakening to the Sacred: Creating a Personal Spiritual Life

see "Resources" for trading recommended reading...

Since you liked The Da Vinci Code, I wonder if you can figure this out...TAD RED UNITE

I don't see "Trailer Park Boys" on your TIVO list. If you haven't already seen it, make sure and check it out. From looking at your other favorite shows, I think it would be right up your alley.
