With a number of firms now offering retail traders direct access to the interbank foreign exchange market, participation in the FX market has grown substantially. As a result, the amount of technical and fundamental information available to traders has increased exponentially in recent years. An area that has failed to receive the same amount of attention is sentiment.
Trading on sentiment works because market tops occur when the majority of traders are overwhelmingly bullish and market bottoms occur when an overwhelming majority is bearish. Traders that understand how to determine when a particular market is extremely bullish or bearish have an edge over those traders that follow only traditional technicals or fundamentals.
Nobody is more familiar with this situation than author Jamie Saettele. As a Technical Currency Analyst for Forex Capital Markets LLC—the largest player in the online currency-trading industry—Saettele shares his invaluable insights with thousands of traders each day. Now, with Sentiment in the Forex Market, he'll show you how to achieve unparalleled investment success byintegrating only the most effective sentiment indicators into your daily currency trading activities.
Written with the serious trader in mind, this practical guide provides you with the knowledge needed to develop a top-down, sentiment-based approach to trading the Forex market. Throughout these pages, Saettele puts the entire process in perspective, as he examines how to use Commitments of Traders (COT) reports and other important indicators to locate sentiment extremes that can lead to profitable market reversals. Along the way, he also explains how to interpret market news coverage to gain a greater sense of when participants have become overly bullish or bearish. After exploring what it takes to gauge the psychological state of the market, Saettele rounds out the discussion by addressing how to assess risk and time your currency trades using Elliott Wave theory, Fibonacci principles, and other powerful technical tools.
To profit from today's foreign exchange market, sentiment should play an important role in your trading program. With Sentiment in the Forex Market as your guide, you'll quickly discover why this is true and how you can make more money with this proven method.

This book was recommended to me from an experienced currency trader as I was relatively still new to the field... Jamie gives insightful and important information that accounts for both the established technical methods of analyses and the equally, if not more, important psychological factors that drive the forex markets. It's a well-rounded guide to forex investing and a thoroughly enjoyable read that will surely be one of the "bibles" of Forex investing for generations to come.
