Forex From Scratch is an eBook designed to teach prospective currency traders the fundamentals. It is written in an easy to understand language and can be printed and read at your leisure. Essentially the eBook came about due to the volume of email I was getting asking for basic Forex information. I hope to revise the book and expand on it so your feedback would be greatly appreciated.
