The Little Book of Currency Trading is the perfect introduction to the forex market for investors looking to get a taste of how the largest market in the world works.  Written in an easy to understand tone with some practical approaches, this book is designed for people who have no clue what pips, stops and lots mean.  It is funny how life works.  The Little Book of Currency Trading is actually my fourth trading book and happens to be the most basic.  My first book Day Trading and Swing Trading the Currency Market, an international best seller in its second edition is for intermediate forex traders – it assumes you know technical analysis and how the market works. High Probability Forex Trading on the other hand is designed for advanced traders and only focuses on strategies.  After writing these 2 books, I got a lot of requests for something more basic.  Then came Millionaire Traders: How Everyday People Beat Wall Street, which is an interview series with successful forex, commodities and equity traders.  And now, I have just published the Little Book of Currency Trading for those of you that have been begging for the nuts and bolts of the market.  This book covers the A to Zs of forex trading, talks about how to access the market, how to find a broker, the top 10 mistakes to avoid and the biggest scams in the market.  It includes a practical trading strategy to get investors and traders started and teaches you how to get down to business.
