This book changed my life.

You'll learn how to identify hidden accumulation and distribution. It explains why looking at volume is the most critical component of a big impending movement in the stockprices.

Reminiscences of a Stock Operator by Jesse Livermore, How I Made $2 Million in the Stock Market by Nicholas Darvas, Insider Buy Superstocks by Jesse C. Stine.

These are trading legends who didn't get lucky- they had their share of up and downs. They worked hard and learnt from their mistakes, and are kind enough to share with us.

All the best for your Lambo Dreams!

Hi!

I think a good book to start with the basics of investing is 'The Intelligent Investor" by Benjamin Graham. The book ellaborates on some basic investment related theories and explains them in a easy fashion.

Also, till the time you are ready with a knowledge base, you can start investing via a robo-advisor. It will create an optimal portfolio for you based on your investment objectives and risk appetite. This will ensure that your money is not lying idle till you prepare yourself.

I work at Kristal.AI, and it's my passion to evaluate various upcoming investment opportunities.
