This is an excellent first book for those interested in currency trading. This was my first foray into the subject and the authors do a great job with explaining the fundamentals of the forex market and trading currencies. What I particularly found helpful was the explanation of the major currency pairs and the particular intricacies of trading each. The authors also include a basic primer on technical analysis as it pertains to currency trading. However, what may be most benificial is the ...more

This is a pretty solid book for those who are looking to get into currency trading. This book is more about fundamental analysis than technical analysis.

The main point I learned from the 130 pages of Currency Trading for Dummies I managed to get through before the library requested it back was this: if you don't believe in leverage, you need a lot of money to trade currency as the authors describe.

A great book to get yourself introduced to the FOREX market. It's written in very understandable way that makes people not familiar with any financial markets to understand it easily.

The book alone will rather not prepare you well for trading, but will give you solid basic understanding of FOREX, allowing you to consume more advanced books much easier.

Great book for people who want to get into currency trading for real - the author is definitely experienced in his field. Some chapters were too technical (and boring) to me, I am not really interested in technical analysis!
