“This book should be in every trader/investor’s library.

As we come out of this

depressed market . . . this book can be your companion, helping you avoid

mistakes and enhance your trading/investment program.”

—Bill M. Williams, author of Trading Chaos

“Whether you’re just getting started trading the world’s most exciting financial market,

or you’re looking to add to your trading edge, [the authors] have written an engaging

book packed with powerful techniques that you can use right now.”

—Rob Booker, trader, author, educator, and founder and host of

The foreign exchange market is the largest

trading market in the world, with

average daily volume well into the trillions.

Because the market is always characterized by

high liquidity, forex traders benefit most from

volatile markets—making it the ideal investment

approach today and well into the future.

Mastering the Currency Market is a comprehensive

guide to currency and futures trading

strategies and techniques for both highly volatile

and nonvolatile markets.

Putting to work their vast and highly diverse

experience in forex trading, the authors explain

how to take advantage of the many benefits

of foreign exchange trading, including

its low cost of entry afforded by margin, and

the dynamic pricing by nature of the competitive

marketplace. Mastering the Currency

Market is divided into five sections covering:

  • The basics of trading currencies
  • Fundamental analysis of

    price valuation

  • Technical analysis and

    trading charts

  • Trading philosophy and

    psychological discipline

  • Volatility and risk management

With four decades of combined experience,

the authors clearly communicate to you a trading

method that will give you the confidence

to both analyze markets and execute trades

successfully, regardless of underlying market


As 2008 introduced nightmare scenarios for

investors around the world, it was Al Gaskill’s

most productive period of his trading career.

He used the same trading methods spelled out

in this book.

Apply the lessons inside and you’ll see profits

rise during periods of high market volatility,

and when the market slows down, you can

downshift to countertrending methods. It’s

a win-win investing method, and Mastering

the Currency Market leads you through it every

step of the way.
