Adventures of a Currency Trader: A Fable about Trading, Courage, and Doing the Right Thing
In Adventures of a Currency Trader, Rob explores—through the story of Harry Banes—the ups and downs of being a trader, the struggles many of us must face to obtain the freedom that we are reaching for, and the liberating sense of finally making it. This book, which is unique in its format, gives traders deep ideas to think about: It presents a foundation to trade by and an example we can relate to.
Trading can bring you independence. Trading currency has brought that to me, and I hope that it can do the same for you.
Harry admits early on that he’s a rookie trader, which doesn’t adequately prepare you for how bad he is. He’s the worst trader I’ve ever known. But we’ll stand next to Harry as he picks himself up from the sidewalk on Wall Street and begins to implement the wise counsel of an experienced trader who agrees to mentor him.
From Harry’s experiences, you’ll learn how to recover from disastrous losses, how to set yourself up as a full-time trader, how to talk to your loved ones about what you’re doing. But that’s not all.
You’ll learn with Harry how some of his mentor’s best and worst former students set up their charts, do their analysis, and take their trades. What is more important, you’ll learn how Harry eventually uses similar techniques to become a profitable trader and reach financial freedom. And most important of all, you’ll learn not only how he made those profits, but how he was able to keep them.
