The author knows a lot about Forex and overall this is a must-read book for anyone into this market. However, the author doesnt explain what ecn/stp/dd brokers are (and why you should run away from dd), tries to make the reader think that opening an account outside the USA is riskier, and finally states that leverage above 50:1 isnt a good thing. Perhaps all this is because the Author works for a dd (dealing desk) brokerage in the USA, where leverage is limited... All in all you should read this book, but be critical and dont take every statement as absolute truth, as there are interests in play here.

The "Dummies" formula is very good for getting started in this complex subject. Plain talk, helicopter view, organized. Headers let you jump between topics and skip topics as needed.

I haven't finished the book yet, but I can say that Brian Dolan is a very good writer and seems to know his topic. Some writers are unclear when explaining points they don't thoroughly understand themselves. Dolan's clarity and precision are impressive.

I have been trading currency for about 5 years and this was a good refresher source book for me. Easy to understand and read. Currency trading is not for everyone, but you are think about doing it this would be a good starting book to read. Explains the market and how it works.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Overall, I'm mixed on Currency Trading for Dummies. The book could have been structured much better to my mind and there are parts where I don't care for the way the author has talked about things. There are, though, also some pretty good, useful parts.

The discussion of forex trading mechanics could perhaps have been done better. I think the author too closely associates it with the likes of stock trading in terms of buying and selling. It makes the general point, but could leave some readers with the wrong impression of how things work in retail forex in that it may imply to readers there's actual currency ownership involved, which isn't the case.

I also found the section on order types rather clunky. It takes up much more space than is necessary to talks about stop and limit orders, even accounting for the different ways they are referred to in some cases.

Dolan does take a very thorough look at interest rates, monetary policy, and currency policy in his discussion of drivers of exchange rates, though. He goes into sources and types of information and the major economic and other data elements that go into forex market analysis. This includes a listing of the key reports for each of the major economies, though I would suggest that these things tend to change in importance over time.

The section of the book I think a lot of readers will find most valuable is the one which goes through the major currency pairs and talks about their individual characteristics. This isn't something I've seen done in such detail in other books. This includes both technical and fundamental considerations for those pairs.

There's also a good section on risk.

The book is *laden with technical jargon* which the author doesn't even bother to explain. The book has no glossary either. It is a gross misrepresentation of the "Dummies" logo, and I had to put it aside for now. If you are a beginner in forex trading, I can heartily recommend Anna Coulling's Forex for Beginners.

Brian Dolan has a easy practical approach to helping the new trader make sense of the market, general knowledge of the terms, and practical steps toward a successful trade plan.

I originally checked this book out, from the Library...in fact...I checked it out several times. Since the Library requests, that you return their books, I finally decided I needed this one, on my own personal Forex Training/Educational shelf.
Even though it is written, by a GAIN Capital Strategist, the information is presented in an unbiased and completely educational mode.
I would highly recommend this book, to anyone planning to learn how to trade in the Forex Market.
