This question already has an answer here:
First let me be clear here， I thoroughly understand that economy in general is very convoluted and volatile. I am not expecting myself to somehow do well especially in practical terms in a short period of time or any foreseeable future really. I only want to pick it up as I enjoy learning and recently I really start to gain interest in some of the papers I come across on econometric. I enjoy learning things especially things that are less well understood. My education background is a PhD in ontology; however, my current job mostly works with fields like convex analysis, mostly real-time machine learning and things to do with said field (probability, information, topology, linear algebra vector calculus discrete math lie group etc etc).
My understanding of stochastic statistics would be weaker than many who work in the field, I read these are much more prominent in financing than things I am familiar with. But I am happy to put in some time and get a better grasp of it.
My question however is from my background of education, what are the good list of books to read in regard to learning stock trading? I do have a day job so it wouldn't be very unlikely for me to take any course in it. However, I do get a lot of free time even when I am working so I am happy to put in more then 5 to 6 hours a day for the near future. As I said I am not looking to make a dim anytime soon I just want to learn and understand. I also am very accustomed to read very heavy books with limited language expression capabilities, so you don't have to worry there, haha.
