5 Economic Indicators that Forex Traders Need to Understand

A list of books I've read, plan on reading, or reading now.

Here is my list of books I've been planning on posting for a while now. I've read a good amount of these books but I still have a bunch to go. How did I find these books? I searched the fuck out of amazon for things that I would find useful that had good reviews, ratings, and a summary/description that matched what I was looking for. I don't have the time to write or copy/paste a summary of each book so added the amazon link to each one if you want to know more about it. The last list of miscellaneous books doesn't directly deal with forex trading but rather economics and shit in general. I added them to the list because I figured they would interest some of you. If there are any books I should add to this list, comment below.
Beginners:
These are some of the first Forex books i've read. They're on par with babypips but a little more in depth. Each book explains all the same basic concepts but in their own unique way. I don't know about you guys but I prefer to learn things from different people and sources so I'm exposed to new ways of thinking. If you have been trading for a while, just scroll past these few books, they're meant for complete beginners.
Technical Analysis:
Below is every book you will ever need for technical analysis. They are in no particular order but I strongly advise you to start with the first book by Steve Nison. Of course, just reading these books won't make you a master at TA. You need to apply and practice the concepts as you go. Reading the info is just scratching the surface.
  • Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques, Steve Nison - Link
  • Candlestick Charting For Dummies, Russell Rhoads - Link
  • Charting and Technical Analysis, Fred McAllen - Link
  • Getting Started in Chart Patterns, Thomas N. Bulkowski - Link
  • Technical Analysis For Dummies, Barbara Rockefeller - Link
  • The Art and Science of Technical Analysis, Adam Grimes - Link
  • Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets, John J. Murphy - Link
Fundamental Analysis:
Fundamental analysis is the study of the underlying fundamentals that move a security, in this case, currency. The fundamentals in forex are all about economics, obviously. Therefore, a majority of the books in this list deal with economics. If you feel comfortable with economics, skip to the economic indicators towards the bottom. I also included a book called Naked Money which deals mainly with our financial system and money.
  • Basic Economics, Henry Hazlitt - Link
  • Naked Economics, Charles Wheelan - Link
  • Economics Through Everyday Life, Anthony Clark - Link
  • The Economics Book, DK - Link
  • Economics DeMYSTiFieD, Melanie Fox - Link
  • Doughnut Economics, Kate Raworth - Link
  • Misbehaving: The Making of Behavioral Economics, Richard H. Thaler - Link
  • Naked Money, Charles Wheelan - Link
  • Economic Indicators For Dummies, Michael Griffis - Link
  • The Secrets of Economic Indicators, Bernard Baumohl - Link
  • The WSJ Guide to the 50 Economic Indicators That Really Matter, Simon Constable - Link
Psychology:
You can have the BEST trading strategy out there, but without good trading discipline, you're fucked.
  • Trading in the Zone, Mark Douglas - Link
  • High-Probability Trading, Marcel Link - Link
  • The Signal and the Noise, Nate Silver - Link
  • Superforecasting: The Art and Science of Prediction, Philip E. Tetlock - Link
Miscellaneous:
This is the type of stuff you read when you're bored or taking a shit.
  • Global Economic History: A Very Short Introduction, Robert C. Allen - Link
  • The Creature from Jekyll Island, G. Edward Griffin - Link
  • Richest Man In Babylon, George S. Clason - Link
  • Narconomics: How to Run a Drug Cartel, Tom Wainwright - Link
  • The Industries of the Future, Alec Ross - Link
  • The Urban Farmer, Curtis Allen Stone - Link
  • Griftopia, Matt Taibbi - Link
  • Dark Money, Jane Meyer - Link
  • Currency Wars, James Rickards - Link
  • How Asia Works, Joe Studwell - Link
  • Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill - Link
  • When Genius Failed, Roger Lowenstein - Link
  • The Wealth of Nations, Adam Smith - Link
  • Why Nations Fail, Daron Acemoglu - Link
EDIT: There are some books I left out, I will add them later.

Answered: Your Most Burning Questions About A modern day forex strategy

There are tons of reasons but I'd like to talk about two that I think cover a lot of ground.
Most traders seem to be very short term "swing" or intra-day traders looking to pick up a few pips and move on. What makes this do difficult is that trying to accurately predict the little 20-30 pip blips and bleeps over and over again on a consistent basis with a long term profit is something I consider to be nearly impossible for the vast majority of traders to do. You'll have some winning and losing streaks but, overall, if you manage to even keep your head barely above water you're probably way ahead of the game.
Most of these very short term traders rely on the technical indicators to set up their trades. Many have "backtested" a system, but I think backtesting is a huge waste of time. To really test a system you need to back your charts up as far as they'll go then slowly move things forward, entering and exiting trades as you go. And if you really want to have a good test, start with $100 and burn it if you lose it. Now do some more testing the same way.
Most trading "systems' are variations of MA crossover systems. Trade "when the little hand is on the 2 and the big hand is on the...". Yes in a long term trend they look OK, but see the above then tell me if they really work. They can't tell you when profits are maxed and they can't keep you out of choppy markets, which is when you'll be giving back all the profits made when you were lucky enough to catch a trend.
Very few traders are long term and there are some very good reasons why. Longer term trading requires a very good knowledge of fundamentals and economics. It takes time to digest all this and most traders probably find it very boring and difficult to follow but, what really makes this type of trading so difficult is that in order to stay in these trades you'll need to be able to ride out the inevitable ups and downs that occur as a trend progresses. There's much less "action" here because longer term trends don't get set up every day (or even every week). These kinds of trades don't appeal to the gamblers.
All this being said, I really believe the long term trader has a much better chance of being profitable. I'll explain this by setting up a few bets on the NY Yankees.
Everyone knows the Yankees are a very good team. Does that mean they'll win the world series every year? No, but here's my long term bet:
I'm gonna bet that the Yankees are gonna win more games then they'll lose this year. That's it. I only have one bet the whole season. Boring, really. What's worse is that they've lost 7 out of their last 8 and they're below .500 for the year so far. I'm losing pips and I gotta stay in and ride it out. Not easy.
Here's the Yankee bet that's like trading those short term blips and bleeps:
I'm gonna bet the Yankees score in this inning. Hey, they scored in the 2 previous innings. Alex Rodriguez is coming up, the short term MA of runs scored by the Yankees has crossed over the long term MA of runs given up by the opposing pitcher...
There's a lot more fun in betting this way. You're gonna have 8-9 bets/day for 162 days. Plenty of action, as long as your money holds out.
I guess i'm a boring trader. Hope I didn't bore you too much.
If longer term trading interests you and you want some help with fundamental analysis, I have several other threads that will help. Just do a search.
