Expert advice and timely techniques for surviving and thriving within currency markets
Rapid movements in currency markets have been a common occurrence in recent years, often to the detriment of traders and investors. The ability to manage these fluctuations is essential for safe and successful investment in these markets. Currency Strategy develops new techniques and explains classic tools available for predicting, managing, and optimizing fluctuations in the currency markets. Author Callum Henderson shows readers how traditional macroeconomic theory has repeatedly failed in the face of practical experience in these markets and develops a new approach based on experience. He draws on the technical expertise of his bank to develop mathematical models to assist in the prediction of crises and gives practical advice on how to use these and other tools successfully.

From the Back Cover:

John Maynard Keynes reference to the animal spirits, that elemental force which drives financial markets in herd–like fashion, was applied to the stock market. However, he might as well have been referring to the currency market, for the term sums up no other more perfectly. A market that is volatile and unpredictable, a market that epitomises such a concept as the animal spirits, surely requires a very specific discipline by which to study it.

This is precisely what Callum Henderson does in this eminently practical and readable book. He provides an analytical framework for currency analysis and forecasting, combining long–term economic valuation models with market–based valuation techniques to produce a more accurate and user–friendly analytical tool for the currency market practitioners themselves.

Written by a market practitioner for fellow professionals whose job is to turn the theory into practice and actually execute the currency market transaction, the book is split into three parts:
∗ Theory and practice
∗ Regimes and crises
∗ The real world of the currency market practitioner.
