Rainbow  trading book in pdf
Good morning valuebuddies.

I usually borrow books from library and I just read and forget.

The first time that I seriously reading a "Trading?Investing" book is from HS.

We did not talk about stocks market until one day suddenly he spokes about his MBA.

Suddenly, he says that he have 3 pdf which he wanted to pass to me.
Code:
And now, in term, I pass to you:
1. reminiscences-of-a-stock-operator
2. how-i-made-$2,000,000-in-the-stock-market
3. elder-alexander-come-into-my-trading-room-a-complete-guide-to-trading


I read thru them very carefully and I sort of imagine that I'm the author.
I imagine that I had gone thru the life that they had completed and how do I feel?
I felt that given a chance, I should copy some of their good stuff and
at the same time, be mindful of those bad stuff.

I'm not sure about you, I learn a lot from these PDFs and HS too.

HS shared with me a simple method using CPFIS:
1. Pick a blue chip that gives consistent Dividends
2. Check the stock price -> it usually range bound.
3. For example, look at SPH, the dividend is usually 20+ cents.
4. Says, it always range between $3 to $4 (for example lar, for actual price range, check out yourself, ok).
5. Says, SPH goes up and down between $3 to $4 and with a dividend of 20 cents,
6. What you will do is wait patiently.
7. When SPH drop to $3, you buy every single cents that you could with your CPFIS.
8. After you brought, wait very patiently (and collect dividend while you wait)
9. When SPH goes up to $4, you sold everything (like dog Sh** and don't hesitate).
10. Then, you park your $$$ in CPF and earn 2.5% happyly.
12. Go back to Step #6

Enjoy and have a good weekend (of reading).
Heart Love Compassion

Yes, you're very sharp!
Step 11 is deliberately miss-out.
It's for you to fill up your favourite activities... 

and no secret for me:
11. Travel & Tour
感恩

hi dividendangel,
Welcome to Valuebuddies!

To your question, my personal opinion is that "One Up on Wall Street" by Peter Lynch is a pretty good book to start with because IIRC, it does not contain a lot of financial gargons. Or maybe, if you are really newbie, the first book to start with would be some introductory book about all the basic financial gargons.

This was my first ever financial book that i purchased, some time ago, which kick started everything:
https://www.amazon.com/Citibank-Guide-Bu...0470821345
