Forex FatCat: The Retail Forex Market & FatCat Trading Strategies
There is an alarming amount of literature which maintains the false premise that individual retail traders have access to the still very exclusive interbank forex market. Most texts are either heavily theoretical, mostly indicator-based, focus on outdated strategies, or are irrelevant to the retail market.
This book teaches readers about the retail market's pitfalls and traps, helping to fill in the blanks and join the dots, and find an edge in the retail market. In this book the author lays bare the hard truths about how the market stacks the odds against retail traders, and, in knowing this, how to 'turn the tables' and trade like a FatCat.
