Making money while limiting risk is something every good trader strives to do. But in order to achieve this goal you need a firm understanding of financial markets, as well as the tools that will allow you to effectively apply sound trading strategies in them.

Nobody understands this better than author Greg Michalowski—a market veteran of over 25 years, who has spent the last ten years with retail forex brokerage company FXDD—and now, with Attacking Currency Trends, he shares his experience in this field with you. Following a step-by-step approach and progressing in a logical manner, this practical guide will help swing trading results in your favor by showing you how to better anticipate and attack the trend in currencies.

Divided into two comprehensive parts, this reliable resource opens with a detailed discussion of how to build a solid foundation for your currency trading. Here, you'll become familiar with the attributes of all successful traders and discover the essential characteristics of retail currency traders. Along the way, you'll also be introduced to specific elements that will allow you to excel in attacking forex trends—namely the currency traders mission statement, the game plan, the rules you should follow. Too often traders fail to have or develop their foundation and as a result, their trading is unfocused and it suffers.

After explaining how to develop a solid foundation, the book transitions into the technical tools and strategies used to anticipate and manage forex trends, define risk, and control fear. You'll gain valuable insights into three main charting tools—moving averages, trend lines and a special trend line he calls a "remembered line", and Fibonacci retracements—and learn why successful currency traders look at short-, intermediate-, and long-term time periods equally and trade using all three. Greg outlines ways you can not only trade with the trend but anticipate trends. He reasons that if you can anticipate a trend, you will be better prepared to enter early and stay on the trend. You will become familiar with his proprietary trade terminology including "Three's a Crowd", "Trading between the Goal Posts" and the "If...Should Rule". Relevant examples are also included, highlighting how trading does not always have to be complicated. Instead, you can follow a more positive variation of the K.I.S.S. principal - Keep It Simple to be Successful.

Success in currency trading, as in any business, is based on building the right foundation and using the proper tools that guide you toward your mission as a trader. Combining his years of trading experience with his knowledge of retail traders and the nuances of the currency market, Greg Michalowski has created an accessible trading guide that will help you minimize risk, keep fear in check, and capture consistent profits in today's dynamic currency market.
