From the Inside Flap

What makes the global trader different from other traders? The global trader sees a bigger universe of profitable opportunities that includes foreign bonds, emerging markets, futures, and all types of newly developed instruments and securities. But if you want to become a global trader, you have to devote time and study to the effort. The Global Trader prepares you for global investing by helping you discover the trading methodology that fits your preferences, while providing the essential tools necessary for your journey.
Seasoned financial writer Barbara Rockefeller first explains how to decide what opportunities are best suited for you and then discusses how to target, research, and trade them within a less efficient yet potentially more profitable global market. She also includes relevant Web sites, books, and magazines that will help you gather international information and wisdom in thinking about these unfamiliar situations.

The Global Trader offers the best ways to participate in foreign markets, from iShares to Australian bonds. And for markets where you cannot trade directly, this comprehensive guide shows you how to locate stocks by country. But knowing what to trade does not make a complete global trader. An introduction to the foreign exchange market illustrates how global markets encompass economics, politics, demographics, and cultures as well as business. Important lessons on diversification teach you how to use the futures markets to hedge risk and why the correlation between U.S. and foreign markets can provide a false sense of diversification in your portfolio.

Valuable insights on indices, currencies, and global market inefficiencies allow you to track foreign markets and make informed decisions on when to buy and when to sell. Along with these opportunities, The Global Trader gets you started in building your own trading system as well as using technical indicators, including the support and resistance range and adaptive moving averages. For the evolved trader, this concise guide also explains the hedge fund model and how it can be emulated.

The Global Trader provides you with proven strategies, guidelines, and tools for trading in global markets. Easy-to-understand examples, charts, and graphs give you the best chance to learn and profit from some of the best global opportunities available today. With The Global Trader you’ll quickly understand why this form of trading is an exceptional way to generate profits, reduce risk, and diversify your portfolio.
