“Authored by a man of great character, this book is not only fascinating and innovative in the financial realm, but the spirit of his mantra infuses itself throughout: Life is not about what we acquire, rather what we become.”-Stephen R. Covey, author, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness

“Jared's book on Forex trading is a must for both seasoned and beginning traders of Forex. His personal litmus test was particularly enjoyable as it encompasses the most important thing a trader faces. That is, himself. The book is filled with excellent descriptions, trends, buy and sell zones and how to handle the fundamental events. His description of the Fibonacci sequence of numbers and how it relates to nature will be enjoyable to all readers. This book should be in every trader's library.”-Larry Pesavento

    Fantastic Read And The Perfect Starter Book!

    After reading some other reviews on various FOREX books I decided that I had to write a review on this book, as readers of some other books felt that the material was promotional, confusing, or just too basic and simple.

    This is the perfect book to start your FOREX endeavor as it does just as good a job explaining trading trends, methodologies, and money management as it does explaining how your personality and outlook play an important roll in FOREX trading and any other venture in life.

    After reading my first FOREX book (and stopping halfway through), I was lucky enough to find this book. From the very first chapter I knew that it was different and as I read I was amazed at how Martinez made such seemingly complex concepts easy and even fun to understand.

    The first FOREX book I read confused me when explaining candlesticks and buy/sell indicators. After reading this book I was excited to go to my demo account (a must for beginners) and actually feel confident predicting upward and downward trends as well accurately using trendlines to analyze market movement. (That sentence would have sounded like a foreign language before reading this book!) Though extremely detailed, the concepts taught are simplified and then repeated in various examples and explanations which aided in retention of the material.

    This book not only gives you technical ability, but introduces the concepts of emotional control, conscious/unconscious competency and controlling your bad habits so they will not affect your trading. I honestly feel very confident after reading this book, but more importantly I feel motivated to keep learning as much as I can. Had I stopped after the first book I'm not sure if I would have continued my FOREX pursuit.

    This was a great read for me personally and A MUST READ FOR ANYONE INVOLVED IN THE FOREX MARKET!
