This is an excellent primer for traders at the start of their FX trading career. I especially like the fact that it is separated into two parts, with Part 1 covering a complete introduction to Forex and Part 2 covering the exact strategies. At the end, Mario provides two invaluable pieces of advice for continued success. Firstly, he provides the five rules a trader must adhere to. Secondly, he sets out the three character attributes a trader must have. I believe this book deserves a place in your bookshelf.

Since I have been investing in international equities for many years, this book was of particular interest to me. Foreign exchange impacts us all and particularly those of us investing globally.This book gives a fascinating insight into exactly how the foreign exchange market, the world’s largest, actually works.
I was particularly interested in the description of the six major players in the market, central banks, commercial and investment banks, multi-national corporations, institutional traders, retail forex brokers and retail traders. The author not only details with how these players impact the market but also describes some of the major missteps by rouge traders resulting in billions of dollars of losses.
One particularly fascinating feature in the book is a psychological questionnaire which asks “What kind of trader are you?” The book also deals with trading strategies for various types of traders. Another great section in the book was the use of forex trading on various statistics such as GDP, employment, the purchasing manufacturing index, retail sales and commodity prices.
