      Overview

      A complete guide to Forex, a market appropriate for short-term trading which also gives the opportunity to take advantage of the medium-term trends that occur in the most important exchange rates that are fuelled by the macroeconomic situations present in the various geographical areas (Eurozone, America, Asia and China).

      This book describes in detail the various fundamental factors that affect the behaviour of the reference currencies (Euro, Dollar, Yen, Sterling), the key role played by interest rates and the consequences of expansive monetary policies (in particular, Quantitative Easing) adopted in recent years by the various central banks (FED, BCE, BOJ, BOE). Among the various aspects analyzed there are also the consequences of the expansive decisions taken by the central banks in order to provide liquidity to the entire financial system.

      After describing intermarket connections between the various financial assets (shares, currencies, commodities and bonds) and the correlations existing between the various exchange rates, the author deals with some specific issues such as the analysis of economic cycles and the study of CoT report.

      The final part focuses on some operating themes with the typical signals provided by Japanese candlesticks, the Ichimoku analysis and the study of prices carried out with the multi-time frame method.
