Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

In The Art of War, renowned military strategist Sun Tzu states, "The general who wins the battle makes many calculations in his temple before the battle is fought. The general who loses makes but few calculations beforehand." While this observation comes from one of the oldest military treatises in the world, it's an important piece of advice for traders looking to win in today's dynamic Forex market.

As the Chief Currency Coach at FX Bootcamp, author Wayne McDonell helps clients around the world excel in the Forex field by training them to develop and execute a trading plan with military precision. Why does this approach work so well? The answer is simple???trading Forex is similar to war in that they are both zero-sum games, and in Forex trading, this means that one trader's gain can only come from another's equivalent loss. So, outthinking your opponent is essential to victory in both of these arenas.

Divided into five comprehensive parts, The FX Bootcamp's Guide to Strategic and Tactical Forex Trading puts this competitive market in perspective and shows you how to achieve success within it. This reliable resource opens with a detailed look at the technical indicators you'll need to use in your trading endeavors. From here, you'll discover how to combine these popular indicators to formulate a comprehensive strategy and learn how to use this information to create a tactical trading plan???one that will help you pull the trigger to get in and out of trades.

Besides introducing you to a proven Forex trading methodology and showing you how to improve performance by running your trading operations like a business, this book also addresses some the most important psychological aspects of trading???including greed, fear, loss, and isolation???and discusses what you must do to overcome such obstacles.

In Forex trading, patience and discipline are just as important as technical and fundamental analysis. With The FX Bootcamp's Guide to Strategic and Tactical Forex Trading, you'll discover how developing positive trading habits and the right trading skills will put you in a better position to profit over the long haul.

Let me say right away -
I judge harshly any material that promotes another product. This book promotes the author's website constantly throughout. You must pay to be a member after a trial period LOL

$100 for a measely 7 days!!! That is what the author calls TRIAL. LOL I thought you were trading because you needed money...not because you have tons of money to flush down the toilet?!

Here are the exact current details posted from the author's website -
Trial Membership ($99 for the first 7 days. Then $299.95 for each month)
First 7 days $99. Then $299.95 each 30 days as a full Monthly Member.
Monthly Membership ($299.95 for each month)
Semi-Annual Membership ($1499.95 for 6 months)
Annual Membership ($2400.00 for 12 months)

BEWARE NOVICES !!!!!!!! Tons of people write books and create websites just to get the eager novice to depart with money!

One simple question to ask yourself -
If the author is such a great, successful trader...why would he be busy chasing down subscribers? Would you? Wouldn't you be busy scooping up pips and not bothering with some silly website and trying to drum up business for it?

For the money he is charging per month, you could buy DVD workshops and seminars from some of the top traders out there and you get to keep those DVDs and watch them over and over at no charge.

I do agree that the general VAGUE substance of this book is generally accurate. You could learn a few things...BUT what this book will teach you is freely available online at some great Forex websites for FREEEEEEEEEEEEE !!!! Just Google search "free forex training" or try "baby pips". You will learn FAR MORE than any beginner book will ever teach you there for free.

I'm not new to investing but am a beginner learning day trading and the forex market. I've read several books before this one and have learned quite a bit. This book, however, glosses over important, complicated indicators like Fibonacci retracements and pivot points. My biggest beef with this book are the graphics. The charts are small, dark, unreadable and generally unlabeled. Not useful for illustrating any points. My favorite is the candlestick section where he refers to green and red bars in the chart shown -- which is black and white ("in Figure 12.1 the first candle would be red."). The content jumps around between fundamentals, psychology and technical analysis so it's hard to follow. There are many typos and grammatical errors in this book. On one page describing stochastic oscillators, he says "The bottom line is placed at the 25 percent level. The bottom line is placed at the 75 percent level." I think he means the TOP line is placed at the 75 percent level. These kind of mistakes confuse beginners!!

Wayne really hits the mark with this book. It's a basic summary of the method he teaches at [...] Not only does he cover the technical and fundamental aspects that a successful Forex trader needs to know, but he covers the other all important topics too, like risk analysis, trade plans & journals, trade reviews and having the right mindset to be a successful trader. All with no Fluff!

I found Wayne's book really helped me trade according to MY rules, not the markets rules. This meant that when I trade, it's become a lot of fun again. Now I am trading in one night, profit wise, what I used to trade in one month.

If you want to get a clear sense of what is in this book, have a look at his videos on FXStreet.com blogs called "2 Hour Video: Strategic & Tactical FOREX Trading". blogs.fxstreet.com/fxbootcamp/2008/03/12/2-hour-video-strategic-tactical-forex-trading

I recommend this book to anyone who feels there is room to improve in their Forex trading, or is looking for a reliable, simple system to follow. The method outline in Wayne's book won't give you every pip in a market's movements, but it will provide you with a large portion of them, in a conservative manner.

I also recommend this book to new FX Bootcampers, as it will help them come up to speed quickly, with the method Wayne teachers at FX Bootcamp.

In response to Jeff Marsick's review (RE - Good But Poorly Edited), I agree that this book could have done with more editting. In regards to Wayne's MACD settings of 21, 55, 8, this is in fact correct. One of the things with Wayne's method is that he uses a slowed down MACD oscillator to guage MARKET speed (medium term price action) and a sped up Stochastics oscillator to measure PRICE momentum (short term price action). This is covered in the above mentioned webinar video at around 18 minutes into it.

There is an inherent problem with anything put out by John Wiley and Sons Publishing: their books are littered with errors. I would be shocked to find that an actual editor is on their payroll. Every book they put out needs to be scrutinized, and thoroughly, or else the reader will be led astray. It's infuriating, given that they put out so much product on so diverse a subject as finance, and using so many great names as authors. That is the main reason why this book garners three stars, when it clearly deserves more.

Wayne McDonell has written a great playbook for currency trading. He doesn't waste time with the basics of what a pip is or what the majors are or any other detritus that seems obligatory litter in every currency trading book of any level of experience. He jumps in with a description of lagging and leading technical indicators, then proceeds with a narrative on how to use economic information as a sort of fundamental analysis, then lays out a process of combining the two schools into a savvy and reproducible strategy for successful currency trading. He does a fantastic job of it, too. While he points out strengths and weaknesses in indicators, he never claims one to be a silver bullet or that there is a secret sauce to being a successful currency trader. Instead, he lays the groundwork for the reader to practice on their own and fine tune this approach. If you are looking for a magic formula, go somewhere else. If you, like me, tend to make trades without much of a plan (and subsequently get torched by such poor executions), then this is the book for you. Novices can definitely learn from this book, and perhaps even seasoned veterans can pick up a thing or two.
