From the Inside Flap

In only a few short years, the currency/foreign exchange (FX) market has grown significantly. With institutions and individuals driving daily average volume past the $3 trillion mark, there are many profitable opportunities available in this arena—but only if you understand how to operate within it.

That's why Kathy Lien—Director of Currency Research for one of the most popular Forex providers in the world—has created Day Trading and Swing Trading the Currency Market, Second Edition. Written for both the experienced and aspiring trader, this updated guide outlines the essential elements of the FX market and reveals the latest trends, data, and strategies that all traders, particularly day and swing traders, need to be aware of in order to excel in this fast-moving field.

After an engaging introduction to how the foreign exchange market has evolved over the last few years and a look at some of its historical milestones, this book quickly moves on to address the innovative trading insights that will enhance your profitability within today's FX market. Page by page, you'll become familiar with:

  • New technical trading strategies, which include how to trade news, effectively time market turns, and capture new shifts in momentum
  • Proven fundamental trading strategies, which involve trading off commodity prices, fixed income instruments, and option volatilities; as well as intervention-based trades and macro event-driven trades
  • The unique characteristics of each major currency pair—from when they are most active to what drives their price action
  • Trading through different market conditions, by first profiling a trading environment and then applying specific indicators for that environment
  • And much more

Both informative and accessible, the Second Edition of Day Trading and Swing Trading the Currency Market goes far beyond what other currency trading books cover. It delves into consistently critical questions such as "What Are the Most Market-Moving Indicators for the U.S. Dollar" and "What Are Currency Correlations and How to Use Them," while touching on topics like "How to Trade like a Hedge Fund Manager" and "The Impact of Seasonality in the Currency Market" that could give you a distinct edge in this competitive arena.

Filled with proven trading strategies as well as detailed statistical analysis, the Second Edition of Day Trading and Swing Trading the Currency Market will help you achieve unparalleled success in the most actively traded market in the world.

From the Back Cover

Praise for the First Edition

"I thought this was one of the best books that I had read on FX. The book should be required reading not only for traders new to the foreign exchange markets, but also for seasoned professionals. I'll definitely be keeping it on my desk for reference. The book is very readable and very educational. In fact, I wish that Kathy's book had been around when I had first started out in FX. It would have saved me from a lot of heartache from reading duller books, and would have saved me a lot of time from having to learn things the hard way. I look forward to reading other books from her in the future."
—Farooq Muzammal, Head of Foreign Exchange, MAREX Capital

"Kathy's book is an indispensable tool for Forex traders, whether you are a professional or novice. It not only lays the groundwork for an in-depth understanding of Forex trading, it also contains numerous fundamental and technical strategies . . . . I suspect that many traders will be keeping Kathy's book within arm's reach for many years to come."
—Eddie Kwong, Executive VP/Editor in Chief, Tradingmarkets.com

"In Day Trading the Currency Market, Kathy Lien provides traders with unique, thoughtful, and profitable insight on trading this exciting market. This book should be required reading for all traders, whether they are novices to Forex or experienced professionals."
—Cory Janssen, cofounder, Investopedia.com

"There are aspects to trading currencies that are different from trading equities, options, or futures. In this book, Kathy Lien provides deep insight into all the mechanisms that take place in the currency markets. Any currency trader will gain more confidence in their trading after reading this book."
—Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan, Editor, Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities

"Kathy has done a brilliant job with this book. She speaks directly to traders and gives them guidance to improve their performance as Forex traders. I took some notes and ideas from the book myself that are going to be very useful for my business."
—Francesc Riverola, CEO and founder, FXstreet.com

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was reluctant to purchase this book because i feared this one would be as many other books i have bought before: tutorial on basics, with examples that are hard to follow. I was wrong but i am giving it a four star because the one area i believe is very important to discuss stop-loss management she was not very helpful - still better than most books i read - for that i think you need to read Agustin Silvani's book.

Aside from that this book is an excellent instruction book on swing and day trading. The book very succintly explains the preparation for the trading day and the two strategies you can follow: fundamental or technical. Although i don't use some of her strategies i do use a couple and am in the process of designing my system for the others. I think the three chapters 8,9 and 10 are worth the price of book by themselves.

I've taken classes and actively trade the Forex market. Kathy's book contains many trading strategies and a simple example to explain how each strategy works. But like anything in Forex, you need to take the time to examine her strategy and "backtest, backtest, backtest" to see if it works for you. Her philosophy is to be consistent and go for hits, not go for home runs. As the saying goes; pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered. I feel limiting risk is one of the keys to being a successful trader (which Kathy continually stresses); also trading with consistency and knowing why you make the trades you make. There are so many different strategies presented that you have to choose what fits your personal investing sytle. There are not chapters devoted to in depth explanations for any particular strategy, so if you want details you will have to do additional study. The book gave me several profitable strategies that I still use. I would recommend this book as ONE of several. With trading one is always learning.

This book is very good, I wish I have read it when it first came out, it would have saved me a lot of money and heartache.
The style of Kathy is very appealing to the mind as you read, which of course helps in understanding what you are reading and eventually just do as she suggests in the book, I started with one strategy and so far my results are 50/50 meaning I get stopped 50% and take Profit 50%, and when I analyzed why the stopped, I found because I didn't follow what she said 100% so I go back and read again.
I have read more than a 100 books on Forex, this book is by far the best and in true honesty that is the only book you need, and of course her future books as well, which I am sure will have more information and strategies.
Anyone teaching Forex, they would have the best course ever if they just structure the course according to the book.
Thank you Kathy and look forward to more insight and more strategies.

Unless you are a professional financial analyst dedicating hours of research to the currency markets this book is a must read. (even if you are an analyst, you'll want to read this book). Just buy the book, and read it, then read it again. This is some complex stuff, Kathy provides a forum to understand the FOREX market and what moves it and how to trade it. Trading strategies with entry and exit rules for long and short positions. Terrific work!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Kathy's first book on daytrading the currency markets is a landmark; this updated version expands on it by adding new content for trading news plays, how to time a turn (pivot), and following flow (institutional money flow).

Kathy's a brilliant forex strategist and trader, and along with Boris, the two of them are great resources to learn from. Highly recommended. I'll be telling my 8100 traders that this is a "strong buy"; all of Kathy's training (particularly how to use correlation tables to identify strongest-paired moves) are a superb addition to any currency trader's library.

Great job as always, Kathy!

The book was written 5 years ago, its exemples are dated and I fear that things might have changed a little bit since then. Nevertheless, I took good tips from reading the book.
