From the Inside Flap

Making A Fortune in the World's Most Dramatic Market

With no commissions, 24 hour accessibility, and gap-less chart patterns, it is no wonder that the foreign exchange (FX) market continues to draw more and more interest from traders around the world. If you're ready to venture into this fast-paced world and stake your claim, you must first acquire the skills that will help you make the most in the FX market—because if you're uniformed, you will underperform.

Written by Raghee Horner—one of the top FX traders in the country and a master teacher of trading systems and techniques— Forex Trading for Maximum Profit offers a comprehensive road map to getting started in this little-understood, but highly-profitable arena. By sharing her winning tools and methods, including classic charting techniques, price action, and market psychology, Horner enables traders and investors of any skill level to capitalize on and make money from the FX market. Throughout the text, she lays out a blueprint for trading success. And through this book's companion CD-ROM, you'll be virtually transported to Rahgee's trading desk where she'll show you—by illustrating actual, real-time trades and techniques—how to put what you've learned to work.

Filled with in-depth trading insights and practical advice, Forex Trading for Maximum Profit contains everything you need to succeed in the FX market. By becoming more familiar with this dynamic market and understanding Raghee's thought process as she trades in it—a process that has helped her achieve a typical per-trade return of 34%—you'll be prepared to take your first step into FX with confidence.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn trading forex profitably.
Lawrence Chan
If you notice how many Forex Trading Expos she participates in, I would really question if she has time to be an active (and successful) trader as she claims.
Thomas M. Slover
I am angry no because i paid money for this book, but because i will never be available to get back the time that i waste reading this useless crap.

Okay, first some background: I am new to trading forex but have been trading stocks and options for over 5 years. Aspects of the forex market are very intriguing (24 hour trading, a small 'universe' of currencies to watch vs. thousands of stocks/options, leverage, etc.) so I was looking for a book that would tell me more about the forex market and provide a good foundation to trade successfully.

Let me state from the outset that the editing indeed leaves much to be desired. Typos, letters or spaces left out and smallish charts that forces one to bring out a magnifying glass at times. But none of this has anything to do with the value of the content of the book. Anyone dismissing this book simply due to editing are 'missing the forest for the trees,' as the saying goes. But the minor editing blunders are unfortunate and are the reason for only 4 stars instead of 5.

Content pros:

a) Very bite-sized chapters help encapsulate topics nicely. You can focus on one thing at a time to insure that you 'get it' before moving on. And everything builds upon the preceding chapters fairly smoothly, so it works.

b) True to her premise, this is NOT another missive on all the possible technical indicators available to use. (If you want that, I suggest Murphy's tome on Technical Analysis.) Instead, she is clearly outlining some of the key tools that she uses to trade forex and provides adequate reasoning for her choices. She does not dismiss other indicators as not being useful - she simply seems to have found that following a simple system with these tools works for her. And I would have to agree that it is easy to become bogged down in 'indicator paralysis' and I find her simplicity refreshing.

After all of the hype that I read surrounding this book, I was pretty disappointed with its content. The charts too small to be read easily, and the spelling and punctuation errors were more than I cared for.

The book does give a brief overview of the Forex market, but I was hoping for something more. The author does do a good job of describing her method of trading the market. I must admit that while I was reading the book, I was thinking that her methods seemed just too simple to be effective. However, the day after I finished reading the book, I found and successfully traded both a swing trade and a momentum trade using her techniques. The results were a gain of 30 pips on the swing trade and 75 pips on the momentum trade! This book has definitely given me another way to look for trades and I will continue to follow her "Three-Step Setup".

Different traders have different styles. Some want a zillion confirming indicators before placing a trade, some prefer playing with indicators to trading, and some indulge in the fantasy of finding the "holy grail" system.

Personally, I've never found anything that beats good ole support and resistance, trendlines, and entering the "zone" by watching candlesticks form and candlestick formations. I pay my bills with Forex, and I trade against the indicators only slightly less often than I trade with them. I often forget to look at them at all because I'm focused on what is happening with the ... PRICE!

The problem with indicators is they tell you what has happened but they make you believe they can tell you what WILL happen. There is a world of difference between looking at a historical chart and watching one develop in real time. If you don't believe me, just place a default slow stochastic on a chart and watch the crosses develop. You'll lose a heap of money in no time at all. Then knock yourself out tweaking it according to any number of holy grail systems. You'll lose another heap of money.

Raghee's system is no different. It looks great on historical charts, but often fails to predict the future in real time.

Actually, it is fairly easy to predict where prices will go in general - assuming no strong support or resistance and no big news, they will usually continue merrily on in the direction they are going. Consequently, it's easy to get into a trade.

Getting out is the trick. And that trick is about experience, psychology, and money management more than prediction.

IMO, the truely reliable tools for trading Forex are simple -- S&R, trend, candle formation, PRICE PRICE PRICE. The systems based on indicators -- Raghee's included -- are simplistic, which is quite different from simple.

Kids, there ain't no free lunch. That's the bottom line.

I swear, I can not understand how anyone could possibly give this book more than a 3 star review at the very most, and that's being generous! The book is simplistic, as if geared towards the mentality of a child. Some of the chapters are no more than 2 or 3 pages long and have nothing of any educational value. I have read all the reviews, as some of the other reviewers have recommended, and have gleaned this much from having done so. The people who have written negative reviews have pinpointed areas of why the book should be used as nothing more than fire-starter. They give reasons for why the book is a waste of time. Just read the other reviews for yourself! However, all the positive reviews merely state the same, general thing over and over--that the reader learned how to trade from digesting this fodder, that it was one of the best books on trading ever written, and that they didn't understand anything about the forex market, even after reading the proliferation of other, expertly written titles out there, until reading this one. But there is very little explanation as to why or how they learned anything from this book, beyond merely reciting what the book jacket already states. I get the feeling that those individuals who wrote posititive reviews on this book didn't even read it, because they're all just repeating the same, generic theme but without giving any specifics.

IMPORTANT: Being on the lookout for other trading books, I regularly trip over this book and notice its reviews whenever I do. It's fascinating to note that if the lastest 2 or 3 reviews are positive, I will not see any NEW reviews for weeks, or months at a time.
