I’ve never read a book specifically on forex trading and I’m not sure that I would.
My objections to forex trading books (and training) -
you’re paying for someone’s collation efforts, not their knowledge - all successful strategies that a private retail trader can use are known and are freely available: the best for beginners will take a couple of days to understand, less time than it takes to order and read a book.
I suspect learning private retail trading from Brent is going to be like learning first aid from a brain surgeon - in this regard, Brent comes from the HSBC trading floor - how realistic is this experience to what we’re doing?
trading books have to cover all styles of trading to maximise audience, so they have to be superficial on any given style - maybe it would be better to find a high-probability style and focus on strategies that respond to it?
all trading training courses and books are inherently incomplete - if they were complete, who would buy the second edition? Who would buy the follow-up? Would the guy’s publisher and editor really allow him to sell everything he had in one title?
all trading training is inherently hesitant and designed to help you get poor very very slowly - not so fast that you can take out litigation against the author - not so fast that you won’t buy another book or course. You definitely won’t get rich on just the knowledge contained - rich traders don’t buy trading books.
Cynical? Maybe. But I’d still like to see a review of this title please, anyone?
