I see the market is having a sale on stocks.

Do you think the sale will be extended and they'll slash prices even more or now's the time to buy?

If you want a good book on trading chose one by a REAL successful trader, not successful writers and marketers. I recommend books by one of the best traders ever, Victor Sperandeo, Trader Vic Methods of a Wall Street Master  and all his other books  Trader Vic II: Principles of Professional Speculation  and Trader Vic on Commodities.. Also Market Wizards and the New Market Wizards.
Another one is Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is a 1923 roman ŗ clef by American author Edwin LefŤvre which is the thinly disguised biography of Jesse Lauriston Livermore, considered the best trader in history. There are more books, but in my experience these are the best.

Jesse Livermore made and lost fortunes, at the end he suffered from depression and committed suicide with a bullet to the head, the book is full of wisdom and advise that is golden.

The book may be full of golden advice but anyone who follows in the path of Jesse Livermore should be aware that he was a very good gambler, not an investor

Correct, those days were different, bucket shops is where he started trading, he was a speculator or a trader, not an investor, and same for Trader Vic, also a trader, a very good one.

And it's extremely important to make that distinction. I would assume that most people are not traders, nor do they have the personality to become traders.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I'm new to this thread and actual investing in the market. I've watched a lot of stocks over the last 3 years but haven't put it a dime into anything yet. I'm curious if anyone here has an opinion on Allergan (agn) right now? Seems like a lot of upside with minimal risk.

100% And for investors I think it is better to just buy an index fund that tracks the S&P 500 than invest in individual stocks. With individual stocks you might make more or lose big, on bad earnings, changes in fundamentals, strikes etc.  I was never an investor, I do much better trading short to medium term and works well for me.

Very oversold, just like 90% of stocks, all depends on the overall market, but the stock has been in a strong downtrend since 2015,if you buy here I'll use a stop loss below the most recent low of $125 to limit your losses if you are wrong.
