Forex Made Easy 6 Ways to Trade The Dollar

by James Dicks

McGraw-Hill Adobe e-book 2004



Overview

The first plain-English introduction to foreign currency exchange trading--one of today's hottest profit opportunities The foreign currency market is the largest financial market in the world, and foreign exchange trading is quickly becoming one of today's most high-profile, potentially lucrative markets. One problem is that books on the topic are complex, technically dense, and difficult for Forex novices to grasp.

FOREX Made Easy is the first book to approach the topic in a detailed yet accessible style, gradually and deliberately moving from simple to complex in easy and natural language. Author James Dicks--founder of the popular trading software 4X Made Easy--draws upon his trading knowledge to give readers only the information they need, from setting up a workstation to trading electronically.

This Forex guidebook provides traders with:

An easy-to-follow, six-step process for FOREX trading

Methods for gaining an advantage using technical analysis

Dozens of examples to illustrate key points
