A dishonest sales plug for PFG Inc., NOT a trading book, December 24, 2002 ByEnrique Moreno "Dr. Enrique Moreno" (Palo Alto, California United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Foreign Currency Trading: From the Fundamentals to the Fine Points (Hardcover) Do not waste your time and money. The "authors" (much a dignified word for the compilers of this mismatched and unfocused jumble of trivial materials) are the owners of PFG Inc., and the obvious purpose of this book is to get your business. Their main tactics are: a) The tedious description of all conceivable risks associated with broker selection, the implication being that they (PFG Inc.) are the no-risk choice. b)Four chapters grinding the theme of how risky is to do it on your own (chapter 2: "What you don't know may hurt you", chapter 4: "Buyer beware, be very aware", chapter 5: "Are you qualified to invest in Forex?" and chapter 9: "The sensitive question of risk, risk, risk ...") and one (chapter 7) where they tie it all leading you to the grand conclusion: use the services of Currency Investment Managers! (Your choice shoulod be them, of course.) Of the 241 pages, 114 pages are apendices with forms, primitive-looking graphs,...

Not fair, March 15, 2003 BySuper Trader - See all my reviews This review is from: Foreign Currency Trading: From the Fundamentals to the Fine Points (Hardcover) I have been trading futures and options for 11 years. I have written three books on the subject. This is the worst example of authoring that I have ever seen. There are no real insights into the subject of Foreign Currency Trading. Mr.Wasendorf fails dismally at being objective and goes overboard in promoting his company PFG. I was sorely disappointed. I was really looking forward to additional insight into Foreign Currency Trading.

save your money ..., March 15, 2003 By A Customer This review is from: Foreign Currency Trading: From the Fundamentals to the Fine Points (Hardcover) ... I have no idea what objective these guys had in mind when they sat down to write this book.... This book is just a bunch of information thrown together (probably downloaded from the internet) and they obviously took no time to put any real effort into this book. I was terribly dissappointed with my purchase of this book.....look elsewhere if you are interested in getting started in forex trading.
