Welcome to our educational page. We understand that there are a large number of ‘industry’ terms on this website that may not make sense to everyone at first glance.

If this is you, don’t worry. You will learn more as time goes on and we would like to help decrease this learning curve by offering some suggestions for blogs and books you should check out.

Let’s start with blogs because that’s what you are currently reading so let’s begin with that.



Obviously we are the author’s of the DRC website so we want to give ourselves a ‘innocent’ promotion, so if you haven’t already – check out our blogs, as seen below. 

Ben C. Banks
Jake Huska (Market Picker)
Bruni Charting
The next couple of websites are some in which all the authors have enjoyed reading over the years.

A comedian. This guy is smart and not afraid to speak his mind. Loves to poke fun at some of the ‘problems’ within the financial industry as well as offer some of the most thought-provoking blogs.
A pure chartist. Focuses on what price is telling him, develops good risk/reward setups that make sense to him. Simple enough right. Also a big Miami Sports fan.
The thinker. This is the man behind it all. He is the one we should all thank for creating the ever-so-amazing finance social media outlet we all have come to love (StockTwits). Along with this, his years within this industry offer a unique perspective on the market.
Kimble Charting
The artist. This man is one-of-a-kind. There is not a single other man that we know of that offers such a unique perspective on charts. If you want to learn more, be sure to check this man’s website out.
A magnificent trend follower. The simplicity with which he trades is a thing of beauty. Completely transparent with his trading performance. Tweets out what he’s watching regularly. He focuses on price and blocks out the noise. A gem. 

Brett Steenbarger @steenbab
One of the most prolific bloggers in the trading community via his renowned TraderFeed blog. From trading psychology to market structure analysis, @steenbab is a must-follow for any market participant.

Joe Fahmy @jfahmy
Combines growth and catalysts along with the price action. I don’t think there’s been a post of his I haven’t retweeted. I absolutely love when he does his Weekend Video segments, providing some insight into what he sees in the market and how he’s approaching things. Another must-follow.

David Blair @crosshairtrader
Systemically follows the price action in the market and individual stocks through his self-developed process. He’s constantly tweeting out charts that he’s watching or that have triggered a proprietary trading signal. Embodies the need for simplicity in trading.

SMB Capital
Hands down, some of the best short-term traders I know. They’re a proprietary trading firm in NYC. Their trading blog is one of the most valuable places to gain insight into how a professional trader thinks and acts (I’ve actually contributed to their blog as well: http://www.smbtraining.com/blog/author/jhuska). Even if you’re not a short-term trader, their philosophy of elite performance is applicable to any developing trader. SMB contributors (and co-founders) include @sspencer_smb @MikeBellafiore.

The following list of books is by no means comprehensive (just like the blogs were not), but it is a good start. Here at DRC, we believe that experience is a better teacher than reading or knowing the terms/lingo.
