(From The Jacket) – Making money while limiting risk is something every good trader strives to do. But in order to achieve this goal you need a firm understanding of financial markets, as well as the tools that will allow you to effectively apply sound trading strategies in them.
Nobody understands this better than author Greg Michalowski — a market veteran who has spent the last ten years with retail forex brokerage company FXDD — and now, with “Attacking Currency Trends”, he shares his experience in this field with you. Following a step-by-step approach and progressing in a logical manner, this practical guide will help swing trading results in your favor by showing you how to better anticipate and attack the trend in currencies.
Divided into two comprehensive parts, this reliable resource opens with a detailed discussion of how to build a solid foundation for your currency trading. Here, you’ll become familiar with the attributes of all successful traders and discover the essential characteristics of retail currency traders. Along the way, you’ll also be introduced to specific elements that will allow you to excel in attacking forex trends — namely a mission statement, a game plan, and rules.
After explaining how to develop a solid foundation, the book transitions into the technical tools and strategies used to anticipate and manage forex trends, define risk, and control fear. You’ll gain valuable insights into three main charting tools — moving averages, trend lines and remembered lines, and Fibonacci retracements — and learn why successful currency traders look at short-, intermediate-, and long-term time periods equally and trade using all three. Relevant examples are also included, highlighting how trading does not always have to be complicated.
Success in currency trading, as in any business, is based on building the right foundation and using the proper tools. Combining his years of trading experience with his knowledge of retail traders and the nuances of the currency market, Greg Michalowski has created an accessible trading guide that will help you minimize risk, keep fear in check, and capture consistent profits in today’s dynamic currency market.
