Getting Started in Currency Trading is both an introduction and reference tool for beginning and intermediate foreign exchange (Forex) traders. This information-packed resource opens with a description of the Forex market and a section of clearly defined Forex terms with examples. You'll learn how to open your own trading account by following step-by-step instructions and numerous screen shots that show you what expect inside a dealer's trading platform. You'll walk through the physical process of placing and liquidating currency orders. Later chapters introduce various trading strategies and tactics in detail, along with some fundamental and technical analysis that will help you win in the exploding foreign exchange trading market.
What people are saying - Write a review
I read the book cover to cover in two sittings. Easy to read and is worth the time for people looking for general knowledge. I recommend this book for someone who is preparing to go on a first date with a trader and they want to have some intelligent conversation. This book does not give you any concrete strategies on how to create a profitable trading account. A few good nuggets made this book worth the read, but it won't be on my list of must reads.
