I call volatility information already priced in the market. For example, today Mario Draghi made comments after the ECB rate decision and sent the market spinning 50 pips. But my system saw it coming. I'm in love with information and research.
Once I place a trade, I let it run; I don't worry about it. If a position goes against me on those rare days, I just add to the position with the same target objective. Usually a trade is days but it could be longer. For example, the markets were closed for Thanksgiving for 2 days; when it reopened, it opened wildly against me by about pips I placed the trade the night before Thanksgiving.
Don't trade when bond markets are closed because currency prices won't price correctly due to its price misconnection to a bond or yield price. And never trade when banks are closed. Trade Sunday through to Thursday and only take short-term trades on Fridays. We commit to never sharing or selling your personal information.

My objective to write Inside the Currency Market was to teach market participants how to become a professional trader, how to view the market from a professional context, how to truly understand central banks and to define my Know Thy Nation Rule. The Japanese Yen for example was once an easy pair to trade among the majors because we knew we could easily predict its market movements.
It became very stubborn as a pair. If a trader follows my Know Thy Nation Rule , one would know the economic factors that affect the Japanese economy, how the Yen trades in its own market as well as the various forms it takes in other markets and the opportune times to enter and exit a trade. It is all outlined in Inside the Currency Market.
I began trading 8 years ago and started just like everybody that enters this business. Through many years of extensive research, study and practice, I became proficient in not only my ability as a trader but I set out early on to know and understand every facet about the currency market, currency pairs and factors that make pairs move from a fundamental and technical perspective.
What assisted in the time factor was my years as a part-time adjunct Political Science college teacher. The book covers many topics from stock markets to repurchase agreements, to trade weight indices to Libor to forward points. What was the methodology in that nation-to-nation coverage?
I not only bring a clear discussion but I calculated forward points to a yield curve for the first time in any publication. It was my hope to outline for traders the complete international financial system in order for traders to understand what they do.
I disagree. I believe the currency market is a self-contained market where each currency pair can be valued against another. Many pairs are US dollar pairs and can be valued against non dollar pairs. I outlined a complete guide for traders in a nation-by-nation approach to bring an understanding not only of markets but hopefully an understanding of currency pair trading on a daily basis. A chart is only one side of the currency pair story but not the complete story since other factors must be considered.
Secondly, Inside the Currency Market is the guide that will hopefully live on for many years to come since rarely does anything change in the international financial system. It is a book for traders, written by a trader but also slated to academics, researchers and anybody who wishes to become more proficient in their capabilities by understanding what they do.
Explains virtually every element of the market and can function as a desk reference that puts everyday events into context for traders Fundamentally driven trades based on interest rate differentials and trade imbalances are discussed, as well as technical trades involving chart patterns, trends, and trading ranges Each chapter contains questions and answers to help readers master the material The currency market continues to generate interest and attract new retail traders due to the many opportunities available within it.

This explanation just feels off though, so wanted to mention. The equity market is to Earth, as the foreign exchange market is to Pluto; vastly diverse realms in size, function and dynamics.
Whilst equity markets are primarily driven by speculation, currency markets are driven by economic necessity. The necessity for currency exchange, and it's fundamental reflection of economic forces. With the current sky-high margin leverage rates offered, those whom truly understand the core dynamics of the foreign exchange markets have won the lottery.

If you're serious about understanding currency movements - you won't be disappointed with this book. It is one of the most fascinating and detailed accounts I have come across so far. Report abuse. Having read and read again Brian Twomeys 'Inside the Currency Market' I find it can be thoroughly recommended to anyone who wants to gain far more than just an insight into the various price mechanisms of the currencies and instruments traded inside the international money markets.
Whether you are used to thinking of the price of money as simply interest rates or even its rental for a given period then the authors sweeping knowledge of the international currency markets, including its nooks and crannies, where the price of money is determined, will be an intriguing eyeopener. Also included are price determining factors such as indices, bond prices, short term interest rates, forwards, swaps and trading cycles.
Its also not short on trading strategies involving currency pairs using swaps and averages etc but of course its up to an individual as to what may be achieved with any set of tools. In any event if you hope to have a serious and professional knowledge of the money markets then this book really does appear to be required reading. The book covers all mechanics of the currency market.
It can be quite hard to grasp some parts and chapters do need to be re read. It will give you a much greater understanding of the currency market. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Other editions.

Twomey's extensive by the numbers approach includes findings in a comprehensive table covering 8 moving averages and market prices that includes for each average: the Z Score, Standard Deviations of 8 averages, Standard Deviation of the Range, Left, Right and Two Tailed Probabilities, Confidence Intervals and Z Score Correlations and Beta Coefficients.
Twomey goes on to masterfully explain in an easy to read and well written style how not only each statistical aspect impacts the currency price but formulas, calculations and examples are offered to trade and understand currency prices in percentages, Critical Values, Probabilities, standard vs normal curves and Standard Deviation ranges.
Interesting is the inclusion of Bible numbers as not only a choice for an MA length and historic derivations but his classification of Bible Numbers into Trends, Trend Continuation, Price Rests and Volatile are a first. Twomey has put together a truly fascinating walk through of the currency price based on his many years in the markets and a must read for any trader, market professional, academic and researcher.
Twomey is a 17 year adjunct college professor of Political Science and an expert in the American and International systems of Politics. Get A Copy. Kindle Edition. More Details Other Editions 1. All Editions. Friend Reviews. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.
