Ask Colin

In addition to your mini-course, what three other introductory trading books/courses would you recommend to a complete novice?

The mini-course only deals with stock selection. A complete trading approach is much more than that.

I suggest you start with these:

1. My book The Aggressive Investor, which teaches my complete approach and is a model for you to develop your own trading/investing plan.

2. Dr Alexander Elder's book Come Into my Trading Room. There is a review on my web site on the Newsletters page. This will teach you what trading is all about.

3. John Murphy's book Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets. This will give you a solid grounding in Technical analysis.

In the meanwhile, you can start on my subscription web site. The Stockwatch and Technical Analysis articles already comprise a large part of a textbook on technical analysis.
