From the Inside Flap

What makes the global trader different from other traders? The global trader sees a bigger universe of profitable opportunities that includes foreign bonds, emerging markets, futures, and all types of newly developed instruments and securities. But if you want to become a global trader, you have to devote time and study to the effort. The Global Trader prepares you for global investing by helping you discover the trading methodology that fits your preferences, while providing the essential tools necessary for your journey.

Seasoned financial writer Barbara Rockefeller first explains how to decide what opportunities are best suited for you and then discusses how to target, research, and trade them within a less efficient yet potentially more profitable global market. She also includes relevant Web sites, books, and magazines that will help you gather international information and wisdom in thinking about these unfamiliar situations.

The Global Trader offers the best ways to participate in foreign markets, from iShares to Australian bonds. And for markets where you cannot trade directly, this comprehensive guide shows you how to locate stocks by country. But knowing what to trade does not make a complete global trader. An introduction to the foreign exchange market illustrates how global markets encompass economics, politics, demographics, and cultures as well as business. Important lessons on diversification teach you how to use the futures markets to hedge risk and why the correlation between U.S. and foreign markets can provide a false sense of diversification in your portfolio.

Valuable insights on indices, currencies, and global market inefficiencies allow you to track foreign markets and make informed decisions on when to buy and when to sell. Along with these opportunities, The Global Trader gets you started in building your own trading system as well as using technical indicators, including the support and resistance range and adaptive moving averages. For the evolved trader, this concise guide also explains the hedge fund model and how it can be emulated.

The Global Trader provides you with proven strategies, guidelines, and tools for trading in global markets. Easy-to-understand examples, charts, and graphs give you the best chance to learn and profit from some of the best global opportunities available today. With The Global Trader you'll quickly understand why this form of trading is an exceptional way to generate profits, reduce risk, and diversify your portfolio.

From the Back Cover


"Barbara Rockefeller brings the authority and perspective of a knowing insider to this well-written account of the risks and opportunities in trading highly leveraged markets like interbank currencies and futures."
-Nelson Freeburg, Editor, Formula Research, Inc.

Face it, the U.S. stock market has been analyzed to death. Long- and short-term investors are looking outside domestic markets to enhance portfolio performance and diversify the way they trade. This is why the concept of a global trader has become so prevalent. Whether you are looking to balance your portfolio, generate profits, or hedge risk, The Global Trader can help you make informed decisions about your global investments. Let Barbara Rockefeller unlock the opportunities and help you find the tools, guidance, and resources to make the most of trading in the less efficient yet potentially more profitable global markets of Europe, Asia, and beyond.

Format: Hardcover
I cannot believe the two reviews that currently (November 2005) appear regarding this book: one critic admits to never even having read it, while the other goes off on jesuitical semantics!

The book is a good one, as are Ms. Rockefeller's other books. She also runs a very good trading advisory service, that has made me a LOT of money!

That being said, this edition is now over four years old, in a market that changes very rapidly. I hope that she will soon be coming out with an updated edition of the book, addressing all the many changes that have occurred in the FX market since this edition.

Format: Hardcover
This book is one of those books which is a must read for a Trader to be successful. It is more useful for those who want and operate in global markets and not just plain equity. It also analyses the major events and discloses the facts which most media missed but was crucial to the risk taken by the particular trader.

An updated version of "Trading 24/7" so some info is redundant, but it hones in on more detail of actual trading strategies in the various types of markets. At the very least, Rockefeller's books afford a starting point for further investigation and offer suggestions that may lead one to opportunities that may have otherwise been overlooked.
