Currency trading


Recommended Posts

To the board - I'm looking for insight and ideas


My cousin is a summer intern with a large investment bank's currency trading desk in Hong Kong.  Apparently, the training is pretty cryptic.  Accordingly, I'm looking for some ideas - are there any books, articles, papers, etc that you are aware of that would discuss the introductory elements of currency trading?


Any and all ideas are welcome

Long-run--Forces that give rise to long-term cycles are discussed, including relative productivity growth; trends in a country's terms of trade, savings, and investment; and more
