Balanced and More Than a Beginner Book The Getting Started… Series has a very specific template and follows the similar …for Dummies format. The author really shines in his tenor and script as well as his organization and dissemination within the framework but adds more depth than standard books in either series; they sometimes lack flow and cohesiveness. Some warnings: he has a large subject matter to cover and it is not one that should be learned from one author or book. In the same subject matter I highly recommend to supplement Forex Training with the educational online course at […], it’s free, incredibly extensive and excellent, save for continuously selecting the next course, a downloadable complete .PDF file of the course would have been nice instead of the sole web based navigation. This book works well as the replacement to having that course in a text format. This book strengths are its currency and applicability to the latest in platforms, brokerages, some web sites, and providing the background of many of the exchanges. The charts cut to the chase on pip pricing, Risk/reward ratios, and position sizing. Stop losses and Taking profit points are stressed as well. Weaknesses:For a true beginner student, I would recommend delving much deeper into fundamental and technical studies in other texts, this edition makes some excellent recommendations for those studies. Including John Murphy’s Financial Analysis of the Technical Markets, which I feel is the one book any trader worth his/her salt should have. Conclusion:I haven’t found a better book for currency traders in their larva stage and as one of prepubescent traders I enjoyed reading it and learned a great deal.
