Introduction
Foreign exchange is one of the most exciting markets for traders. It is open nearly 24 hours a day during the week and is far more liquid than other financial markets. Every day, the world’s governments, banks, businesses, and traders buy and sell currencies. Some are simply looking to buy or sell goods in other countries. Others are hedging risks or speculating on major changes in the market. To me, it doesn’t matter why they’re placing trades, only that they are trading. Their activities create opportunities for me—and for you, if you learn the techniques of how to effectively trade in this lively market.
In fact, the activity in the forex markets presents profitable opportunities for the smallest of traders. The long open hours make it accessible to those who need flexibility. New traders can get started with relatively small amounts of initial capital and use leverage to build their accounts over time.
I’ve been trading for close to 30 years. I’ve seen technologies change, currencies consolidate, and new assets emerge. The fundamentals don’t change, though. The best traders pay attention to the basics and take the time to do the work before they start to trade. I’ve learned from them, and I want to pass that discipline on to you.
My approach to trading is based on a straightforward idea: we need to win more than we lose; otherwise, we just lose. As traders, we win by implementing techniques, or trading methodologies, combined with “tradeplans” using clear parameters that we have backtested, forward tested, and practiced. It is this rigorous testing that allows us to prove to ourselves that our tradeplans will win more than 50% of the time. From there, we supplement our winning tradeplans with smart money management techniques—methods for determining how much we risk and when we risk it. Beyond that, we do nothing, absolutely nothing other than allow the trade to play out as it will. Believe it or not, that last part is the hardest to master. When I say we do nothing, I mean we don’t get in our own way. Sounds easy enough, right? It’s not. To be successful, you have to shut out the noise, abandon the emotion, and just execute. The reason for trading is to make money, that’s it. If you can begin to accept that now, then your chances for success will grow. Again, it sounds easy. It’s not.
I know you’re ready to get started, but I hope you’ll take the time to read through this book before you turn your hard-earned money over to a broker. Too many traders rush in without doing the work, and they do so to their detriment. The up-front work of reading books like this cover to cover, learning how to trade using a simulated account (not real money), and committing to the rigorous testing of your tradeplans before you deploy them is what will create your edge in the market. Most traders don’t take the time to study, practice, and test. Consequently, they never learn how to properly trade. They jump in unprepared and without a plan. One of the main reasons I’m writing this book is to prevent you from making that mistake. I want you to be prepared, ready and determined to succeed.
Who I Am
I’m a California dude, through and through. I grew up here and love the climate, the beaches, and the mountains. I’ve taken to the culture, the laid-back hustle that goes on. People here work hard, but they also know how to have fun. Before I took up trading, I was ensconced in the music business. I played drums in a few rock bands, and I did event production on the jazz scene. As a musician, I understood that making music becomes more fun the better you are at it, and the only way to get better is to practice.
As with drumming, the path to becoming a real winning trader is long and arduous, but for me, the payoff that makes it all worthwhile is that it has given me the means and the flexibility to enjoy the rest of my life. While I continue to trade, teach trading, and write books about trading like this one, I also continue to play drums and hang out with my friends and family, all while enjoying the financial fruits of my labors.
My proficiencies in trading span the gamut from swing trades to day trades, from commodities futures to spot market trades in dented pizza sauce cans that fell off the forklift. I’ve done a lot of different things in life, but, for better or for worse, I can confidently say that there’s nothing out there quite like forex. It’s the largest financial market, open nearly 24 hours a day during the week (its hours are almost as nonstop as mine were when I was a professional musician). Forex is active, attracting banks, corporations, and individual traders. Great trading opportunities are simply among the by-products of the forex market’s massive, nonstop activity. I’ve always loved this market. In fact, it was my experience in the forex market that altered my personal life forever—in a good way!
The Great Pound Short (and How It Changed My Life)
The story starts in 1991. That year, the British government joined the European Exchange Rate Mechanism (ERM). This was the predecessor to the European Union’s single currency, the euro. Under the ERM, the central banks of the European nations agreed to keep their exchange rates in tight ranges relative to the other European currencies. This reduction of exchange-rate risk would make it easier for businesses to buy and sell goods across the continent. The Bank of England needed to keep interest rates high in order to maintain the agreed-upon exchange rate against the German mark.
In 1992, George Soros, a hedge fund manager with a penchant for currency trading, noticed that this arrangement had created a problem for the British pound. It was overvalued relative to where it should have been based on the British economy. Soros started betting that the pound would fall in value, a process known as short selling in trader language. Over the summer of 1992, he built up a short position that was reported to be worth $10 billion.
On September 16, 1992, the British government realized that it could not meet the standards it had agreed to. The Bank of England announced that it would be leaving the ERM. The next day, the pound fell by 15% against the German mark, and Soros made an estimated $1 billion in profit, a trade that would infamously become known as the “trade that broke the Bank of England.”
Almost 30 years later, this Soros trade remains a legend in the currency markets. Soros’s firm had an army of analysts who were able to look at the political and economic situation in Europe and then draw up a trade with little downside risk. Had Soros been wrong, the pound’s exchange rate would have been almost exactly the same as it was when he opened the short position. In the worst case, then, he would have broken even.
I was just beginning to trade forex myself at the time of Soros’s famous short, and, by coincidence, my best reading of the charts at that time led me to place a similar trade, shor
