The working person’s trading method detailed. Part 2 Resources.

A list of tools, websites, books, etc. that I have found useful. I will keep the Resources page updated with new links I add. Check there for new entries.

Trading Books (My favorites)

  1. Dave Landry The Layman’s Guide To Trading Stocks
  2. -This is my current top book. If you read only one this would be the one I recommend. My primary method is an amalgamation of multiple methodologies, but his has had the greatest influence on my style.
  3. Jesse Stine Insider Buy Superstocks: The Super Laws of How I Turned $46K into $6.8 Million (14,972%) in 28 Months
  4. -An outstanding book. A little too much life story at the beginning, but Jesse has a fascinating story and a gives a solid description of his trading system. My only complaint is that he does not scan for stocks, I prefer to as it cuts that time spent researching down dramatically if done properly. That is where the Stockbee Episodic Pivots scan fits in perfectly.
  5. William J. O’Neil How to Make Money in Stocks: A Winning System in Good Times and Bad, Fourth Edition
  6. -One of the first trading books I read. Though I don’t utilize much from this book in my trading, I do think it is still a good primer in trading and fundamental analysis.

Other Trading Books

-Many of these I have read or am planning on reading. Never stop learning.

I have read many more than these, but these are probably my top trading books.

Blogs/Informational Websites/Social Media/Podcasts/YouTube

  • Investopedia
     -A great place to learn the basics.
  • Stockbee
     -A wealth of information. Read it all! At a minimum read the top posts. I also have subscribed to his paid site before. It is worth it and inexpensive.
  • Adam Grimes
     -Worth a follow on Stocktwits or Twitter as well. His free trading course is outstanding. I have not gotten around to reading his book yet.
  • Dave Landry
     Twitter: @davelandryTrdr
     -Dave has a very simple but effective methodology. His previously linked book is a must read.
  • Jesse Stine
     Stocktwits: InsiderBuySuperstocks
     Twitter: @InsiderBuySS
     -I highly recommend going to his website and signing up for his friends and family newsletters. They are very informative, though infrequent.
  • Stocktwits and Twitter
     -A lot of “fluff” if you will. Don’t spend a lot of time here. On occasion you can find a solid person to follow that can provide some good information. Go to my stocktwits and see who I follow if you want. Not everyone I follow is great, but a few are.
  • Chat With Traders
     -A solid podcast. I have listened to every one of the first 100 episodes and sporadic episodes after that. Very heavy in quant trader interviews, which is something I am interested in but do not currently have the time for. That has caused me to cut back a bit on listening to it.
  • Trend Following Radio
     -Very good trader interviews and discussion by Michael Covel.
  • Lucky36Luc YouTube
     -When I first started getting interested in trading cryptos I ran across this channel. He trades similar to me so I binge watched all of them. Very good stuff.
  • BATT Bitcoin and Altcoin Trading Talk
     -An very informative Bitcoin podcast
  • Chris Dunn
     -Bitcoin, Trading, and Entrepreneurship


  • Interactive Brokers
     -My only broker for stocks. I have a regular brokerage account with them and a Roth IRA with them. I use them for the low commisions, good fills, good shorts availability, and a pretty good trading platform.
  • TD Ameritrade
     -This was my first broker. Great trading platform, great mobile apps, poor fills, high commissions.
  • Fidelity
     -A good place for retirement accounts if you want the best selection of mutual funds to choose from.
  • Coinbase/GDAX
     -I buy and sell Bitcoin and Ethereum on GDAX and store/send via Coinbase.
  • Poloniex
     -This is where I do my altcoin trading
  • Bittrex
     -Another alt coin trading platform I use occasionally.
  • Binance
     -An alt coin trading platform I have been using more and more recently.


  • Telechart
     -TC2000 has outstanding scanning features. Does cost $30 a month which may seem expensive, but the time it saves makes it worth it. I save my watch list here. To start out I used to save my watch list. It is the same company.
     -I run the Episodic Pivots scan here as I like having all the data in one place with the chart. A fantastic resource.
  • TradingView
     -The best bitcoin charts outside of Coinigy. I am currently using them, but may switch to Coinigy at some point.
  • Coinigy
     -The best cryptocurrency charts.
  • WSJ After Hours Movers
     -Look for stocks that could be watch list material. I look at stocks up at least 4% with 50k volume.
  • Pre-Market Movers The Stock Market Watch
     -See what is moving in the premarket to find potential watch list stocks. Sift through the stocks with ultra low volume.
  • SwingTradeBot IPO Screener
     -This is my favorite IPO screener.
  • NextBigTrade Stage Analysis Screener
     -This is one of my weekend scans I go through. Look up Weinstein stage analysis, it is a trend following methodology.
  • Bitcoin Checker App
     -For Bitcoin and Alt Coin Alerts

Primary Scans

These are the main scans I am running. Many of these are Telechart PCFs, but could be easily converted to another scanning platform or possibly to FINVIZ though not perfectly. If FINVIZ ever gets the entire market into their system I will switch to them entirely.

  • Episodic Pivots
     c/c1>1.04 and v>3*avgv50.1
     I run this in FINVIZ first and then run the Telechart scan as FINVIZ is missing some IPOs and smaller stocks.
  • TI65
     avgc7/avgc65>=1.05 and minv3.1>=100000
     -A Stockbee Scan. I run this every weekend. It is a momentum scan that looks for stocks whose trailing 7 day average close is 5% or more above the 65 day average close. I look for newer trends.
  • Young Trends TI65
     avgc7/avgc65>=1.05 and AVGC7.20 / AVGC65.20 <= 1.05 and minv3.1>=100000
     -I run this every weekend. It looks for stocks that recently flipped from Bearish TI65 to Bullish TI65.
  • Landry Bowtie Crossover
     (C > AVGC10 AND C10 < AVGC10.10) AND (AVGC10.10 < XAVGC20.10 AND AVGC10 > XAVGC20) AND (XAVGC20.10 < XAVGC30.10 AND XAVGC20 > XAVGC30)
     -I run this every weekend. It looks for the Dave Landry Bowties that have happened in the previous 10 days. I sort this by TI65 and go through the top 20–30.
  • Trend Scan
     -I run this every other weekend. It looks for stocks that have been above the 70 day moving average for the longest period of time. It is a way to measure trend strength.
  • Stage Analysis
     NextBigTrade Stage Analysis Screen
     -I run this every other weekend. I look for stocks moving into stage 2 which is the potential start of a new trend.
  • IPOs
     SwingTradeBot IPO Screener
     -I go through this every weekend. I sort by nearest to high and most recent IPOs and go through the top 10 or so.

This is most of my scans. I did not include my short scans, because I do not short a ton. I do maintain a short watch list, but it is not a huge part of what I do. I will get the shorts scans put up here at a later date.

Non-Trading Books

Other books that were valuable though not trading related:

-I have read many more books than these, but these are the top ones.
