I hope, that whether you are a trader, investor or a speculator, you will find one, or perhaps more, of my books useful in your own approach to the markets. It is not the be all, end all, but as I said before it is a great start. After all, there are only two questions we need to answer when considering a position in the market: What is different about this book, is the focus on those aspects of trading which I believe are fundamental.
Applying what you learn

Hi - my journey into the financial markets was prompted by a desire to make sense of the jargon filled replies I usually received when asking any financial adviser, the simplest of questions. Clearly they believed as a mere woman, I was incapable of understanding the complexities of the markets. This prompted my desire to learn, and since then I have been involved in every aspect of trading and investing for over seventeen years.
Now at last, I have the luxury of time, to devote the next phase of my life to writing a series of books with one aim.
To explain complex subjects and concepts surrounding the financial markets, in a clear and simple way. I actually began my professional life, as an English teacher. However, English was not my first language, having arrived in the UK from Italy at the tender age of three. At that time I spoke no English whatsoever, and my first memories are of my little village school in Scotland where I grew up, and where I learnt to read and write, chalk in hand!
Very old fashioned, but what a wonderful way to learn. Since then, I have never stopped talking! Languages must be in my blood, as I also studied French and Spanish. I've now transferred the 'teaching gene' into written form through the power of Amazon. I hope, that whether you are a trader, investor or a speculator, you will find one, or perhaps more, of my books useful in your own approach to the markets.

The book assumes no previous knowledge in Forex trading, but builds your confidence step by step through 14 chapters.
The book is well planned with knowledge gained in one chapter, being applied as an input to the next chapter. Hence, I do not recommend anybody to engage in random sketch reading as far as this book is concerned, if you are serious about building an income stream as a Forex trader.
This is followed by Volume-Price analysis. Again most books I read was about "Price Action Trading", which missed-out on a powerful leading indicator such as "Volume". Anna does due diligence to explain the importance of tracking Volume as a means of understanding the real intentions of Market Makers.
Ultimately you are your worst enemy in the market, since as human beings, we have a natural tendency to exhibit "fight or flight" behaviour, which could be detrimental to your trading success. This chapter is very well written, using simple language with clear chart illustrations that anybody can understand.
I highly recommend this book, not only for new Forex traders, but also for seasoned traders, who are trading without using a powerful free indicator such as "Volume". I'm a newby at Forex trading but thanks to Anna Coulling's book, Forex for Beginners, I can now confidently step into my new journey.
It covers all the bases such as currencies and what influence them, money management, choosing a broker that's right for you etc. I bought the book because I wanted to learn about Forex and I was not let down. The English is simple and easy to understand. It talks about everything one needs to know to get started in the Forex market. Before now, I was trying to gather every information that I could lay my hands on the internet but this book is a Summary of everything.
A very good introduction to the world of Forex trading. It covers the basics with a good level of detail. Only four stars as there are some typos and repetitions; a bit more proof reading wouldn't have gone amiss. Sep 02, Ammar Mahasneh rated it it was amazing.

Very easy to read and suitable for beginners: Jul 13, Ivan Nikolic rated it really liked it. A great introduction to Forex Markets.
For anyone who is interested in trading forex markets, this book is the best place to start. Intersting book as introduction to Forex, it helps to get an idea about how trading is going but it could be less detailled Jan 12, Ahmed Yusri Ghouse rated it it was amazing.
Outstanding resource for a beginner I am not a trader or a person with tremendous knowledge on currency markets or any kind of financial markets. In fact I only have a passing knowledge of markets in general. So when I picked up this book I was trying to determine if forex trading could be a potential side hustle and backup to fall back on in case my full-time job abruptly ends. I had browsed a few online forums here and there and found an overwhelmingly negative perception of forex as a viable i Outstanding resource for a beginner I am not a trader or a person with tremendous knowledge on currency markets or any kind of financial markets.
I had browsed a few online forums here and there and found an overwhelmingly negative perception of forex as a viable income stream. Too many people just keep saying it doesn't work. But all these people sounded like those people who look at muscular fitness freaks and sum it up to steroids ignoring all the work that goes into building that kind of body.
So I decided to get this book to determine for myself if this is in fact a pipe dream or a real possibility of making money consistently. I have to admit after reading this book I come away with a wealth of knowledge of financial markets not just forex, but any speculative market , but the hope that this might actually work as a means to make some real money.
I must say that this book is definitely for beginners, but a total noob with no knowledge whatsoever of finance will find some concepts a bit difficult.
Since I am a management accountant by training and quite interested in finance I found it quite easy to pick up. But for someone without even basic idea of money or finance might find it a bit more difficult to pick up. Not impossible by any means, I'm sure if you're a reasonably intelligent person you will find this book really useful. I find the book is very realistic in terms of expectations, money management and techniques.
No 1 method that guarantees success percent of the time in this book. Just a series of methods to help reduce the risk you take on any position. I personally found this quite wonderful as I do not believe in miracle solutions and neither does the author.
All in all I highly recommend reading this book if you're serious about learning about forex and are willing to spend the next few years not days or weeks figuring out how to trade successfully. Oct 10, Bryce rated it it was amazing. However, I can say that Anna was thorough and clear in explaining trading to a beginner.
I never got lost and her analogies were perfect. She laid out some ground rules but was very clear that trading is an art form and not pure science. There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to taking a new position in the market. I feel like she did a good job at encouraging the beginner to get started while I don't have any background in FOREX trading, so I don't have a standard to hold this book to. I feel like she did a good job at encouraging the beginner to get started while giving me good guidelines on how to proceed in my learning.
Would advise anyone to read it if they are just starting out on the Forex and looking for a push in the right direction. She really gives you the basics and it isn't too complicated. My only gripe is that the images are in black and white and I can't seem to get hold of the colour ones online, this makes the charts a little bit difficult to follow when they're being explained.
