If you are new to the world of forex trading, then the following book may be for you. I remember what it was like when I first started and it can be a confusing and complex market to interpret. In the book I explain the forces that drive the markets, and the broad approaches to analyzing market behavior. I hope it will provide the background knowledge to help you become a better trader, as you enter the world of forex trading.
Success for many traders remains an elusive dream, and whilst the trading process itself is relatively simple and straightforward, the markets themselves are most certainly not. Indeed of the four principle markets, forex is the most complex of all, and yet is promoted as one that could be your own personal ATM machine. Nothing could be further from the truth, which is why many aspiring traders ultimately fail and either give up, or move on. This is a great shame, as it’s not their fault, and is simply because no-one has ever explained how the markets, and in particular, the forex markets, really work.
If this sounds familiar, then this book is for you.
The forex market is far from simple, and the tools and techniques you will need to survive and prosper are varied. Many budding traders approach the world of foreign exchange in a one dimensional way, either in adopting one single analytical technique, or by assuming that this market works in isolation to all others. Both are equally dangerous.
The forex market sits at the heart of the financial world. After all, every decision by every speculator, trader or investor is about one thing, and one thing only – money. The FX market embraces every aspect of risk and return in financial terms, which is then overlain with the political and central bank manipulation, all part and parcel of this world.
To succeed as a forex trader, you need to equip yourself with the tools, the knowledge and the techniques to take on the immense forces ranged against you. Approach the forex market with a pea shooter and you will simply become another casualty. Arm yourself with this book, and you will then enter the forex trading world, fully mobilised with the appropriate weapons, of which knowledge and insight are the most powerful.
And don’t forget as the late great Jesse Livermore once said:
“It [the market] is designed to fool most of the people, most of the time”
I have never found SO much information in ONE book on ANY subject, let alone forex trading. It’s an eye-opener to ALL the market segments. It explains HOW the markets are related, and WHY they move the way they do. With that information, it allows you to do what she said, to see the BIG PICTURE and take advantage of it – not the other way around – and make better informed, less risky trades.

This book is excellent. It is very clearly written with good charts and furthermore, she gives you exact instructions on what to look for. So many others books will hide the ball by mentioning their indicator which you have to buy later. This book lays it all out.
