TJ has recommended me two books , " Ask Mr. Easy Language," and , " Building Winning Trading Systems." Does anyone else have any other recommendations on books to learn easy language? or power language

thanks

Not a book but a complete sequential read through the MC EL help is a must (2 or three of these actually over a year or so since your needs change with new knowledge and ideas). On my first pass I made up a list of useful commands to try some time. On my second pass I added a few that did not seem useful during the first pass. Doing the same with the canned EL studies and functions is equally useful.

I forgot. It is handy to put the list of useful commands in some sort of calendar reminder system so you get a reminder of the list every few weeks/months. Life gets busy and it is easy to forget you have that list and where it is. I put it directly in the calendar record itself. After a few reminders you just search for it when you need it. After you remember it is there and do a search you bump it out a year or two for the next reminder.

before you spend money on books,
you should check out the FREE tutorials and pdf ebooks here:

http://www.tssupport.com/support/tutorials/

Getting Started with EasyLanguage is the ebook you must download if you're thinking about using EasyLanguage but don't know where to start.

You can also learn a lot looking at other peoples code. Take a piece of code and modify it to do some thing else. It really is pretty easy, diving in with a project is not such a bad way to learn.
