Currency Trading E-books: Another Way to Be Rich, Or to Be Poor?

Jun 18, 2008
Currency trading, or Forex trading as it is generally known, is the act of exchanging one country's currency for another. The way currency trading works is simple. You exchange the currency for better rates than they were before and therefore make money on the transaction. All currency traders are dreaming of learning new ways to make more money out of currency trading and many e-books out there promise to make them a truck of money with currency trading.

Now, many people have been complaining about this type of trading just being another scam that people use in order to get money for e-books, but at the same time it is important to realize that Forex trading is a legitimate type of investment that people use every single day in order to make a lot of money.

In general, there are far fewer scams online than you would think from reading the angry forum posts or e-mails of people that have misunderstood the instructions and ended up performing badly as a result. While nobody in their right mind would say that there are no scams online, the actual act of Forex trading is by no means a scam. Some of the e-books that are offered on the topic might very well be scams and that is definitely something that you need to guard against.

I am not saying that there are no good currency exchange e-books out there because it's not the truth. However I suggest you use caution when you have to pay for that kind of e-book. Better to be safe than sorry.

So, how do you figure out whether a particular Forex system is a scam? Well, short of buying it and trying it out on the free version of Forex trading software offered by many companies, there is not much that you can really do. This is why before you buy a Forex system e-book, you need to make sure that there is a no questions asked refund policy behind the purchase so that if you find it doesn't work, you can easily return it and get your money back. Most of the people that sell products of that type do include refund policies, but make sure that you know before you make the purchase that you can get a refund later on down the road.

Another good way to understand if a particular e-book might be a scam is to read up on Forex at the local library or in financial circles, thereby understanding exactly what Forex trading is and how it can make you money. If you do this and you understand what the experts are doing to make themselves money, you'll be better prepared to determine whether a particular e-book might make you money. However, you should never be hesitant to buy and try if there is a refund policy in place, because you can always get your money back if the system does not meet with your expectations.
