Hi,

That really depends on your background and on the degree of automation of your trading.

Do you want to write a trading algorithm and let him do the stuff, or do you want to trade mostly manually? What do you already know about stocks and basic econ?

I myself can recommend the (free) trading course of Grimes (http://adamhgrimes.com/TAAS/the-course/) if you want to do manual stuff. His book also has good reviews, but I have not read it.

For a more automated approach, I can recommend this book (https://www.amazon.com/Trading-Systems-Development-Portfolio-Optimisation/dp/1905641796/). It implements a trading strategy and goes through the various steps needed to optimize it. Though this may be more of a short term approach.

Regarding portfolio optimization, I also do not know a good book, but would be interest in one.


Oh, and start with a test account. Otherwise you will blow all your money.
