Ask Colin

Can you recommend any books or sites on day trading?

Sites, no - I am not a big surfer of the net, I don't have the time. However, there are lots of links on and some lists that have been published in the ATAA Journal.

There has been a rash of books on day trading published in recent years. I do not advocate day trading, because most people lose money at it. I have not read a book on it that I would recommend. Try The Educated Investor bookshop (link on my site) or Dymocks locally. You could also try US suppliers such as Traders Press ( or Traders Library ( They will all list books on this subject.
