I've been meaning to do a long post on books regarding trading pit history but I really don't have the time and since I feel guilty for being a infrequent blogger, just decided to take snapshots of my main trading bookshelf. Most of the books are regarding the history of trading in the pits, the exchanges, contracts, etc.... but some are on the shelf and shouldn't be but I didn't bother to move them. Just because a book is on there doesn't mean I like it or thought it was good, just that I picked it up and to be honest I can't recall anything in any of those books making me profits trading. Anyways, if you're looking to read up on the history of the trading pits, this is a good trailhead to find books you might've overlooked. To enlarge the photos, click on them.
