FOREX Trading for the Savvy Beginner: What you must know before risking your first dollar
If you've felt that every FX website, forum, and chat room, appears to be overflowing with mysticism, lies, and scams, then you may be right. If you are suspicious of trading systems your suspicions could be correct. If you see charts filled with indicators and can't understand how anyone could make sense of it all then your confusion is possibly justified.
If you are sick of the nonsense and want something real continue reading...
In this book I introduce key concepts every FX trader MUST understand about FOREX trading before they can begin taking their first steps towards success. I discuss topics such as what FOREX trading is, how it works, and illustrate some of the traps and pitfalls you will encounter from within the trading scene, and maybe from within yourself.
This book contains the information I wish I knew when first cultivating an interest in FOREX. Some traders take years before they begin to become aware of the concepts contained within this book after having wasted all of their time searching for easy answers that don't exist, and losing money while doing so.
This is for the traders who are yet to be tainted by the wealth of misinformation found online, and for the others who are sick and tired of seeing the same MA Cross systems mixed with Fibonacci Retracements being discussed over and over. Let's stop the chatter and noise. Let's stop spreading platitudes. Let's get to what's real so you have something tangible you can hold onto as you go on your trading journey.
I want to lay a solid foundation for your trading future so you have every chance of succeeding.
Do you want a guaranteed system that will make you rich? Do you want to know the secrets to making money from trading? Do you want to be making winning trades within just a few minutes after reading? This is NOT one of those books. I'm not going to be selling you bad systems nor unrealistic outcomes.
I'm not going to lie to you and tell you that trading is easy, and that anyone can do it. I'm not going to tell you that with just an hour a day you can begin earning enough money to quit your job. I'm not going to tell you what you want to hear...
I AM going to tell you what you NEED to hear!
The act of making trades is easy, but the art of making profits is much more difficult and requires ongoing work - that's right, ongoing work. I want to set you on the right path with the right mindset and give you the confidence to work towards a future as a potentially successful trader.
By the end of this book I hope you will have a more critical eye, and maybe even a dash of cynicism for good measure, to help keep you out of danger and minimize risk. With the right knowledge and tools, a lot of work, and plenty of perseverance, you can become a success.
