Recommended Reading 09-25-2014

Readers repeatedly ask me for book and article recommendations, especially new traders who are interested in learning more about trading and investing.  Here are two new magazine subscription recommendations from my personal finance library. For traders who are interested in developing their own tools and strategies, magazine subscriptions are the best way to generate a continuous stream of new trading and strategy ideas.  A complete list of all past recommendations is available on the Recommended Reading page.

Brian Johnson's Recommendation

Technical Analysis of Stocks and Commodities Magazine

Technical Analysis of Stocks and Commodities (TASC) is an outstanding source of new ideas. In addition to new issues each month, a subscription also allows you to access past TASC articles, which makes it one of the best values in the industry. Description of Technical Analysis of STOCKS & COMMODITIES

Technical Analysis of STOCKS & COMMODITIES, The Traders Magazine, has been published since 1982. Every issue of STOCKS & COMMODITIES provides the latest, most detailed information on technical trading strategies, charting patterns, indicators, and computerized trading methods.

Active Trader Magazine

I periodically write for Active Trader Magazine and I read it cover to cover every month in search of new research and trading ideas. Active Trader tackles a wide range of topics from trading strategies, to risk management, to options and futures. Timely articles are invaluable for traders who are interested in continuing to learn and mastering the art of trading and strategy development.


Books provide in-depth analysis of individual topics. Trading magazine subscriptions provide a continuous stream of new research and trading ideas across a wide range of topics. The inspiration for many of my proprietary indicators and strategies originated in a TASC or Active Trader article.
