Forex Trading – Foreign Exchange Course
You want to learn about Forex?
Foreign exchange, or forex, is the conversion of one country’s currency into another.
In a free economy, a country’s currency is valued according to the laws of supply and demand.
In other words, a currency’s value can be pegged to another country’s currency, such as the U.S. dollar, or even to a basket of currencies.
A country’s currency value may also be set by the country’s government.
However, most countries float their currencies freely against those of other countries, which keeps them in constant fluctuation.

Praise for The Little Book Of Bulletproof Investing
“There’s a wealth of common sense contained in this new entry into Wiley’s popular Little Book series. It gets the essentials of successful investing right, and the authors’ ‘Tangent’ portfolios present an interesting appraisal of historic returns. While I’m not at all sure that they (or anything else) are ‘bulletproof,’ enjoy the interesting and zippy read, and draw your own conclusions.”
—John C. Bogle, founder and former chief, The Vanguard Group
“Ben and Phil have pulled off a seemingly impossible feat: a concise, comprehensive financial guide that goes down like chocolate mousse. Many readers will laugh, some will cry, few will be able to put it down, and all will be better off for the experience, both financially and personally.”
—William Bernstein, investment advisor and author of The Investor’s Manifesto and A Splendid Exchange
“Most investing books tell you all the tricks to get rich. They lie. Ben and Phil tell you there aren’t any tricks, just some common sense that somehow eludes most people. They tell you not to let your own behavioral biases kill you. To stay diversified. To make small tilts in the direction of assets that other people’s biases make them shun. And many more. Mostly, and this one is my piece of common sense, don’t waste your money on tons of investing books, but buy this one.”
—Clifford Asness, Managing and Founding Principal, AQR Capital Management
“Ben and Phil have written a bunch of investment books, and I’ve read them all, but this one is their shortest AND their best. Stein and DeMuth have indeed found the Holy Grail of Investing. The chart on page 79 proves it. I salute them.”
—Mark Skousen, Editor, Forecasts & Strategies
