Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Make Volatility and Risk Work for You with Forex Trading!

“This book should be in every trader/investor’s library. As we come out of this depressed market . . . this book can be your companion, helping you avoid mistakes and enhance your trading/investment program.”
—Bill M. Williams, author of Trading Chaos

“Whether you’re just getting started trading the world’s most exciting financial market, or you’re looking to add to your trading edge, [the authors] have written an engaging book packed with powerful techniques that you can use right now.”
—Rob Booker, trader, author, educator, and founder and host of TraderRadio.net

Forex traders perform exceptionally well in highly volatile, risky, and active markets. And with the leveling out of international markets and the increase in competition this breeds, dramatic growth is virtually assured—so now is the time to enter this exciting and lucrative market.

Mastering the Currency Market walks you through all the steps for entering the market with the confidence and smarts you need. It provides a solid foundation on the basics of foreign exchange, then examines more advanced topics, such as:

  • Hedging against fluctuations in currency values
  • Long-range planning and risk management
  • Techniques applicable to countertrending and low-volatility markets

I trade futures, stocks and options, with futures now making up the bulk of my trading. I am very interested in learning currencies and gaining additional flexibility in my trading. I came across this book and saw it was a new publication so I pre-ordered. I assumed it would have the latest inside information on currencies and how best to trade them. After the all, the title is "Mastering the Currency Market, Forex Strategies for High and Low Volatility Markets". I have to say that I was sorely disappointed.

The editorial review says the book is divided into these sections:

* The basics of trading currencies
* Fundamental analysis of price valuation
* Technical analysis and trading charts
* Trading philosophy and psychological discipline
* Volatility and risk management

The first 2 sections are the only parts of the book that offer anything unique to currencies. And out of a 292-page book, these sections end after only the first 48 pages. The rest of the book is a basic technical analysis indicator training manual with some candlestick signals thrown in the mix. Starting with simple candlesticks, covering basic chart patterns and looking at multiple time frames for trade confirmation. The book ends with a short treatise on psychology and trading journals, subjects that have entire works dedicated solely to them. There are no unique "Forex" strategies, just basic technical analysis education.

Chapter 1 discusses the basics, names of currency pairs, market times, etc.

Chapter 2 although seemingly lacking real depth may give the most insight to someone interested in mastering currencies. It discusses economic factors affecting currencies and the price movement.

Great Book !!

This is a great Book for Forex Traders and anyone who wants to learn about Forex. The Book is straight forward and simple to understand. I've been trading for a while and I still found this book more than just a review. I like how the author pulls everything together in Chapter 9. Here, the book goes beyond just the technical's and shows you how to pull it all together. For me, the trade signals/triggers were helpful. The strategy was different from what I use and this book laid out a better way. I'm now using the new information in my trading and it really helps.
This book is not just about tech analysis. If you are looking for a book on "only" technical analysis there are others you might find more helpful. Personally, I think technical analysis is really simple. The hard part is applying the technical's to a moving market so you can make money. That is what I like about the last chapters in the book. The principals are sound and overall I would recommend this book to anyone looking to better their Forex trading.

Format: Hardcover
after trading for a while, i'm sure intermediate to experienced traders would have settled down on a style or method that suits their personality, or have found success with. they would have customized certain chart indicators (or just price actions) and laid out their screen/s in a way that is consistent, and not likely to change from one new indicator to the next. for this group of traders, this book may not be useful in that it discusses the "traditional" method of trading using MACD(12,26,9), Stochastic(14,3,3), and RSI(14) using default settings as proposed by the inventors of these indicators. Chapter 9 is the main part that teaches actual trade setups using these indicators, and unless you also used the same combination of MACD/Stochastic/RSI in your own trading, this book would not be relevant if you already settled on other indicator systems.

Chapters 1-8 are basic introductions to the world of forex (including the influence of fundamentals) and technical analysis. Chapter 9 ties all together in trade signals. Chapters 10-13 discusses trading philosophy and risk management. i gave the book 4 stars in that it is a complete manual for trading ....... if you use MACD/Stochastic/RSI combination. there are no new revelations about forex or trading in general, no special techniques or secrets, and nothing you would not have read elsewhere on the internet. However this does not imply the methods don't work, as the authors had successfully traded and taught the same methods for years to their clients and students.

for beginners and novice traders, this book is all-in-one manual and you don't have to read hundreds of internet articles only to find the same materials are covered comprehensively in this book.

I am reading both of these books by Jay Norris. I give only 3 stars for both, because you can't really say to a trader which is the best method, and if your a beginner you will be on a long journey, possibly years before you achieve success as a trader. As a beginner for currency trading, this book is a good start. Seasoned or not. Jay Norris in my opinion is a very good instructor for trading. He explains trading very well, and to a beginner you need good instruction, not just half and bits of how to trade or be a good trader. Many books I have read, and I have read quite a few, believe me, do not explain there methods well, even though they are experts in Technical analysis. Probably because they want to keep selling as many books as they can while keeping you, the beginner in the dark. This book is good as a compliment to other trading methods, and especially price action. Some key components are candlesticks, momentum, MACD, Fibs, support and resistance, pivot points, which are nothing new, but Jay Norris is an excellent instructor. Well worth the price for his instruction.
