These are the most useful things that I have discovered on my trading journey. I have seen a lot of things come and go over the years, but these are products that I wholeheartedly recommend.
All the items on this page have been personally tested by me and I have found them tremendously valuable, or they have been recommended to me from a reliable source. But they may not be for everyone, so please take the time to find out if they are for your or not.
The Best Trading Books of All-Time
Over the years, I have read over 300 books on trading books, trading psychology, personal development, fitness and travel.
They have helped me trade better and live better.
If you are looking for something new to read, my trading library doesn't just list the same old trading books that you see on every other reading list out there.
I'm continually updating this list, so check out what I've discovered recently. [Learn more…]
Recommended Trading Education
If you are serious about becoming a successful trader, then I personally believe that you should pay for your education. Sure, you could try to use all of the free resources out there (and a few select traders have done it), but you will also have to sort through a ton of crap to find the good stuff.
High-quality paid courses get to the point quickly and don't waste your time.
You only have so much time on this earth…make it count.

Another trader who I've learned a lot from is Chris Capre. I have talked to Chris personally on several occasions and have hung out with him in person. He has always been super helpful and excited about doing fun things inside and outside of trading.
I would recommend starting with his Advanced Price Action course. [Learn more…]
Chris Lori is another trader that I have had the pleasure of hanging out with and learning from.
I have learned a lot from Chris's courses, especially when it comes to price action trading. He has one of the most comprehensive education programs in the Forex market and he gave me a huge boost of confidence when I was first starting out.
I would highly recommend signing up for his training. [Learn more…]
Recommended Market Analyst
“Market Analysts” are pretty common. In fact, everyone and their mother can be a market analyst.
But analysts who don't have their money on the line aren't worth listening to because they have nothing at stake. If you want real market analysis, you need to listen to an actual trader.
Joel is a former currency analyst, turned professional Forex trader. What I like about Joel's analysis service is that he believes in total transparency.
He journals all of his trade and the results, based on his analysis. He also takes the time to write frequent market commentary from both a technical and fundamental perspective. His membership site is also very affordable. [Learn more…]

This is what Metatrader should have evolved into. Too late. TradingView is the future of trading software and it's becoming harder and harder to justify using software like MT4 and Ninjatrader, especially after you have tried the free trial of TradingView. [Click here to try it for free…]
MT4 Floating Charts
Traders love having multiple monitors hooked up to their computers. We want to see as much information as possible…I'm no exception. This awesome piece of software allows you to detach individual charts and move them to your other screens. Until now, this has been one of the few limitations of Metatrader 4.

Recommended VPS Hosting Solutions
A Virtual Private Server or a VPS allows you to run your trading programs 24/7/365. This is what you need to run alert indicators or Expert Advisors. Here is what we recommend…
If you need to run an alert indicator or Expert Advisor (EA) 24/7, then there are several Virtual Private Server (VPS) solutions out there. I use Amazon AWS and it works well. You may also be able to get the first year of hosting for free (while offer lasts). It gives you peace of mind, knowing that Metatrader is always running. [Click here to learn more…]
1&1 VPS Hosting
If there is any complaint that I have about Amazon VPS hosting, is that it is really tough to set up. You have to be pretty technical to figure it out. So I wanted to provide an alternative and 1&1 is what I recommend. I personally know traders who use it and it is more affordable than other hosting solutions. Just login and go!

Disclosure: Please note that some of the links above are affiliate links, and at no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission if you decide to make a purchase. I have personal experience with all of these people/products, and I only recommend them because they are helpful and useful, not because of the small commission I make if you decide to buy something. There are a ton of crappy trading products that I could recommend, if I was just in it for the commissions (which I'm not). Please do not spend any money on these products unless you feel you need them or that they will help you become a better trader.
