Recommended broker, Trading Platforms & Books

Over the years I have used several brokers and my currently recommended broker is IC Markets. With a web based platform, MT4 & 5, social trading as well as tight spreads and fast execution, IC Markets are at the forefront. Lots of brokers have little gimmicks and marketing hooks whereas IC Markets is a bonafide no nonsense broker. The support side of things is also really good, with fast response times and fixes for any issues.

Books I recommend

Over the years I have read many trading books, and some are much better than others. There’s a broad range of books available – some focussing on psychology, some on the technical analysis, some of specific elements of technical analysis such as candlesticks and specific chart patterns and so on. The selection of books below are all ones that I have read myself and am happy to recommend and will provide a broad range of knowledge to help you learn to trade.
