Description

Learn how to think like Soros and make a killing in global markets
With the advent of reliable, relatively inexpensive electronic trading systems, global trading, once the exclusive domain of specialists such as George Soros, is now open to the masses. In this book, Barbara Rockefeller tells the average trader everything he or she needs to know to access the global markets and profit from them. Clearly and simply, Rockefeller explains the nuts and bolts of global trading. She examines the importance of futures trading, stock indices, currencies, and other information necessary to be successful. She describes various costing schemes, how to keep and maintain accurate records, and how to deal with a host of common problems encountered in the global markets. And she explains how to understand and use various key indices and types of knowledge required to analyze and successfully trade foreign markets, such as macroeconomics and political analysis.
Barbara Rockefeller (Stamford, CT) is the founder of Rockefeller Treasury Services, an independent research firm specializing in foreign exchange forecasting and currency management. She is also a columnist for worldlyinvestor.com
