4.3 out of 5 stars

on 4 August 2004
I find the FT Markets collection very good in general and this book follows the rule. This a good overview of the foreign exchange markets and of the different instruments that can be used to hedge (speculate) on FX rates. This new edition has been updated and takes into account the new aspects like electronic on-line dealing platforms. This book will be interesting for both students in Economics/Finance and professionals (bankers, FX dealers, corporate treasurers) that need to learn the basics or refresh their knowledge.

I have to say that this is the one Forex Book I would take with me if forced to select one. Why? Because it is the only book I have read which clearly covers topics as diverse as Currenex, the application of Technical Analysis to FX, Buy Side vs. Sell Side FX Dealer dynamics, Corporate Treasury Hedging, and of course a fairly essential history of both the economics of foreign exchange and the fundamentals relevant to trading it. The book is only 380 pages and certainly does meet the needs of entry level traders. Intermediate and advanced traders will stumble on that one thing they didn't know about the FX market. What most books on Forex fail to do - this book does achieve. Few Forex primers clearly describe the mechanics of the Inter-Bank market and the nuanced connections between the spot, forward, and derivatives currency markets. To me most FX books don not integrate information about Corporate Treasury, Central Bank intervention, and candlestick technical analysis without intellectual sprawl. Ms. Taylor's book avoids this through the gift of being able to simplify, coordinate, and render the essential of a topic without loss of rigor or information. As a working trader my guess is that if you lost money in a FX trade lately it was probably to someone who has read Ms. Taylor's book.
