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.

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.
