“Kathy Lien is one of the best and brightest in the currency field. Her new audiobook is a definite must for all new forex traders. Kathy explains in an easy-to-understand yet practical format how to get started in currency trading.” (Andrew B. Busch, Global Currency and Public Policy Strategist, BMO Capital Markets)
Nothing special about this book. Anyone in high-school can put together the information in this book. Very basic information that should not have any price tag on it. They would make more money if they give this book away for free, in return for contact information of potential clients.
I purchased this book to educate myself before investing. I knew the basics but didn't really have a plan of attach. This book has really helped me to slow down and consider how I can be successful (including what that means to me). I cannot figure out how to access the supplemental documents yet, unfortunately. However, the strategies listed are simple enough to understand that I can figure it out.
I personally like both. One to listen to when busy or on the road, the other for quick references to pages or chapters.
No extreme reaction.
I recommend this book to anybody who wants a quick understanding on how the Forex market works. It is surely a good introduction. The narration is excellent and easy on the ear which is very important. There is nothing worth listening to a book when the narrator is awfull, loud or has a strong accent.
Intellegently written, factual
Explanation of using news to trade forex
No, this is the first
The trading strategies and trading with news
Remember to download accompanying reference guide with graphs in, otherwise book won't make any sense.
Kathy Lien has taken a complicated issue and laid it out in an understandable format. As a new investor, this book gives me confidence to begin moving forward in the Forex market. Thank you, Mrs. Lien!
I'm a lawyer and mediator. I represent businesses in disputes with their insurers and in other complex litigation. I also assist machinery companies and manufacturers (primarily international) with equipment sales, non-disclosure agreements, and business issues. I also mediate commercial disputes.
This book is informative and I'm pretty sure that Ms. Lien is a genius at currency trading and makes a lot of money doing it. The book convinced me that, unless you have nothing else to do, and unless you are really, really smart, one should leave training for the professionals. The narration is a bit irritating.
"Good but could have been better"
This book is good for understanding the Forex market better. It has actually changed my perception to the market from a very dangerous and unexpectable market to a very predictable market that can be utilized to increase my monthly income or even to invest in it after my retirement.
The disadvantages are that it omits so many important details especially on charts and charts' reading. It focused on one chart only (The Double Bollinger Bands) and did not mention enough details about other famous and important charts (Stochastic, RSI, ADX, MACD, Momentum, etc.). While the first chapters have been utilized to provide introductory materials about trading in general, it would have been utilized better if it talked about charts and technical indicators, the pros and cons of each, and what benefit does each one provide. But to be fair with the author, she has mentioned another book to refer to when seeking for more details on charts and it is called "The Art of Charts Reading".
Last few chapters were useful for trading. Help refine my techniques. I think its useful for intermediate traders.
