More About the Author
From the Back Cover
Building on a very popular first edition, A Foreign Exchange Primer, Second Edition provides an extremely accessible and up–to–date reference for anyone who wants to work or trade in this unique market.
The book begins with a market overview to introduce readers to this trillion dollar financial market before going on to foreign exchange products such as spot foreign exchange; forward contracts; short– and long–dated contracts; broken–dated contracts; non–deliverable forwards; foreign exchange swaps; currency swaps; foreign exchange options; picturing profit and loss of options; foreign exchange futures and exchange for physical. The book then goes on to discuss essential knowledge required in order to understand the foreign exchange market, with advice on foreign exchange dealing rooms; managing the relationship with an institution; foreign exchange dealings; foreign exchange market orders; electronic foreign exchange trading and margin trading. The book concludes with a discussion on the differences between fundamental and technical analysis, covering their different approaches, key factors impacting currencies and a brand new chapter on market psychology.
Fully updated from the 1st edition, A Foreign Exchange Primer, Second Edition provides a clear understanding of how this market functions, from the main products through to the techniques used, coverage of the main participants, details of the various ′players′ and an understanding of the ′jargon′ used in everyday dealings in order to equip readers with all the practical skills necessary to understand the foreign exchange market today.

This is the only book I have found which explains this important market at a level that practically anyone can understand. I'm a math student doing a mathematical modelling project involving finance and investment and so I needed something like this: I do not know anyone who invests and the simple fact is that most people don't know much about the mechanics of the markets. This book fills in a gap in plain English with little verbosity or unnecessary digressions. Thus, as a basis for gaining intuition and domain knowledge in an undergraduate university project, this book is everything it attempts to be.
