"Fari Hamzei has assembled an impressive array of trading authors. Fari's own work on Sentiment Indicators is definitely worth reading, as usual, as is technical ‘master’ Phil Erlanger's. Furthermore, there is plenty of useful information on derivatives in the chapters by Alex Jacobson and Jon Najarian."
