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
"Success! Mario has created a series of powerful, easy-to-use trading strategies that anyone can use regardless of their level of experience. I've had the pleasure of knowing Mario and working with him for years, and there is no better person from which to learn about currency trading. 17 Proven Currency Trading Strategies gives the reader everything they need to succeed.
Ed Ponsi, President of FXEducator.com and EdPonsi.com

The first part of the book concentrates on a lot of the well known basics of Forex, if your brand new this might be a good read for you. He covers the How and the Why of the market and other basics.
The second part of the book is actually relevant to the title. There are 17 rather quick systems to trading, but there is not a lot of depth and analysis as to why the system really will work. There is a light bit of explanation as to why the systems will work ie the information about the indicator being used. But aside from that there doesn't seem to be evidence that these systems in fact work. The second system, if you worked it mechanically would be a horrible loser for instance, there seems to be a method to the madness but the author doesn't clarify why it would work. The second system, to be clear is a scalping Bollinger band bounce type strategy, but in the charts used to illustrate it there are a few trades that if executed would have crashed and burned.
The day trading systems generally were just support and resistance, either trade the break or fade the break. Nothing really innovative here. The swing strategies were more interesting but not much different.
Some of the position strategies were actually rather interesting, I'm not as interested in those generally, but I really liked the idea of linking the daily forex market to certain commodities, maybe not the newest info, but I felt I learned something here. (Although I did not check it out for myself yet, so fair warning to myself)
That said, if you decide to take a strategy given in this book do your own diligence and figure out the nuances as to why it works on the demo account live before putting your money on the line. As this is true for any system it should just be amplified for these systems.
I thought some of the charts were difficult to read, some of the type was just a little to small but none the less I was able to get the gist of it.
The funny thing is that the author spends a great deal of time explaining the setup of each strategy and its outcome, but if you look closely at each chart, you will notice that the author does not mention the 2 ou 3 LOSING signals that could have triggered a buy or sell signal just a few bars ago. So on the same chart, the LOSING signals are conveniently ignored and only the winning signal is shown and explained.
