I've been planning to read some books on the subject to gain some info, can anyone recommend some books? Or do you think it'd be a waste of time? Google gave me these recommendations:
1606501432601

Might read all of them, I got nothing to do.Thoughts?

The last time I've read any book was like 2 years ago.

I want to read but just can't be bothered to. :feelsree:

Waste of time imo.
There are two rule:
1. Don't panic sell
2. Don't be greedy

Is there absolutely nothing to be gained from them? I don't really have any experience with this kind of stuff, but according to what you've said, common sense and self control should be enough? I took a look at some of the books and, some of them explain certain patterns and such.

Trading is LITERALLY just another form gambling.

I have investments but I just use meme index funds, day trading is way too stressful although unironically browse /r/wallstreetbets for good meme stocks, don't start options trading tho as it's genuinely just gambling.

Well that's disheartening. Thanks for the advice. I think I'll still read the books though.
Agreed. I would also caution you against books, which will just tell you what you want to hear--that it's not a scam, people who say it's a scam or gambling just don't want to put it in the work or are impatient, etc. The books will probably contain some tips that make sense so it'll appear that the books have some substance, but when you take into consideration the amount of prior knowledge, technology, and manpower that hedge funds have, it really is literally just gambling--you will never know more than the rest of the market, which, by definition, makes it gambling.

there’s no “book” that will tell you how to do it right or how to get rich
In this day and age even people with $100 can outsource trading to "the guy". Unless it is somehow illegal in the US, just as trading with leverage over x3 is available only to qualified investors in New York :feelslol:

Brokers are interested in commissions, they don't give a fuck if you make or lose money. No difference to them.
