The first plain-English introduction to foreign currency exchange trading—one of today's hottest profit opportunities

The foreign currency market is the largest financial market in the world, and foreign exchange trading is quickly becoming one of today's most high-profile, potentially lucrative markets. One problem is that books on the topic are complex, technically dense, and difficult for Forex novices to grasp.

FOREX Made Easy is the first book to approach the topic in a detailed yet accessible style, gradually and deliberately moving from simple to complex in easy and natural language. Author James Dicks—founder of the popular trading software 4X Made Easy—draws upon his trading knowledge to give readers only the information they need, from setting up a workstation to trading electronically.

This Forex guidebook provides traders with:

  • An easy-to-follow, six-step process for FOREX trading
  • Methods for gaining an advantage using technical analysis
  • Dozens of examples to illustrate key points

has a good section on patterns or indicators to look for. This was my first forex book and I would recommend it. the software they advertise is decent but i would not trade live with it as it locks up on occassion.

I made the mistake of buying this door stop. It's nothing more but a promotional piece to get you to his website and sell you software and broker services. The 'information' he gives can be found on any forex website.

The forex made easy is a good book for a novice who has no idea about what forex is and does not have a clue of how to get started, but for anyone who has a clue of what forex is and is looking for strategies/setups to trade the forex for profit this book would be a waste of time. P.S. This is a book I recommend to individuals who want to know what forex is about without going on the internet.

I purchased this book after reading the reviews on this website along with some others expecting to gain the knowledge in the Forex area that I would need in order to feel comfortable trading currencies. I was disappointed when I started reading and all it did was cover the fundamentals of the Forex market and its history. I was also disappointed to feel that the sole purpose of this book was a promotional tool in order to get his readers to open an account with his online trading platform (in which the demo account is free for 30 days and then they close and make you open a real account). I would not say that the whole book was bad because he does give some insight into some trends on candlestick charts but not the technical analysis you would need behind the chart movements to feel comfortable in trading currencies. Also, there was a small section about opening up a trading business that was informative for tax purposes but this book was not what I was looking for. I would have enjoyed it much more if he had showed some of the trends and shared the methods he uses in order to make sure a trade he is placing is secure.

I have just finished reading the book from cover to cover. I have traded stocks and futures and I wanted to diversify with currencies. I bought the book and started reading it on a plane ride. It was excellent. There was the compulsary basics and definitions, but then the book went into advanced details on trading strategies, real world applications and honest how to instructions. I was impressed and have decided to start trading. It was also interesting that 3 people stopped me on the plane to ask about the book. I have a positive first impression of the Forex Market and have opened a demo account to practice paper trades as the book suggested.
