I have just finished reading Harris’ “Trading and exchanges“, after more than 4 months of carrying it back and forth on my way to work. It’s a very accessible read and it’s written in an academic style. So in the end I was studying it rather than reading it. That explains why it took me 4 months to go through. However it’s a great book about trading, exchanges, regulation and a very good introduction for everyone working in the financial sector. Highly recommended.
Some knowledge about how markets work is required, but the book talks about markets in general without focusing in particular on equities or bond markets, while citing examples from different markets. Next, I’m reading about the life and career of Bill Gross, the Warren Buffet of fixed income and PIMCO’s chieftain.
