From the Back Cover
"This is an excellent primer for traders at the start of their Forex trading career. I especially like the fact that it is separated into two parts, with Part 1 covering a complete introduction to Forex and Part 2 covering the exact strategies. At the end, Mario provides two invaluable pieces of advice for continued success. Firstly, he provides the five rules a trader must adhere to. Secondly, he sets out the three character attributes a trader must have. I believe this book deserves a place in your bookshelf."
Ray Barros, trader, private hedge fund manager, and author of The Nature of Trends
"Since I have been investing in international equities for many years, this book was of particular interest. Foreign exchange impacts us all and particularly those of us investing globally. This book gives a fascinating insight into exactly how the Foreign Exchange market, the world's largest, actually works. I was particularly interested in the description of the six major players in the market: central banks, commercial and investment banks, multinational corporations, institutional traders, retail Forex brokers, and retail traders. One particularly fascinating feature in the book is a psychological questionnaire that determines 'What kind of trader are you?' and also deals with trading strategies for various types of traders."
Mark Mobius, President, Templeton Emerging Markets
