FOREX Trading Books

Discussion in 'Forex' started by nycderivtrader, Apr 14, 2004.

  1. I have seen a post to RiskArb about Options trading books (fortunately some of which I have already read and have) and decided that since the forex market has caught my fancy lately that I would post the same question.

    Which books do you recommend to better gauge/understand the forex market and how best to plan to trade it?

    Seems like these are some popular suggestions:

    -Trading in the Global Currency Markets
    by Cornelius Luca

    -Intermarket Technical Analysis : Trading Strategies for the Global Stock, Bond, Commodity and Currency Markets (Wiley Finance Edition)
    by John J. Murphy

    -Technical Analysis Applications in the Global Currency Markets, by Cornelius Luca

    -Electronic Currency Trading for Maximum Profit

    So, what do ya say???

  2. NYCDT: Luca's book is the only one I kept regarding "forex" specifically.

    I ended up reading books on trading in general.

    Seems like forex-specific books didn't get me to where I wanted to be.

    PM me and I can see if I can send you the list of some of my books - many of which have not been purchased yet.
