Description Praise for Foreign Exchange "Tim Weithers starts by telling the reader that foreign exchange is not difficult, just confusing, but Foreign Exchange: This useful book is a whirlwind tour of the world's largest market, and the tour guide is an expert storyteller, inserting numerous fascinating insights and quirky facts throughout the book.
Taylor, Chairman, CEO and CIO, FX Concepts "The book reflects the author's doctorate from the University of Chicago, several years' experience as an economics professor, and, most recently, a very successful decade as an executive at a huge international bank. These fundamental ingredients are seasoned with bits of wisdom and experience.
What results is a very tasty intellectual stew. Foreign Exchange is full of jargon and conventions that make it very hard for non-professionals to gain a good understanding.
Weither's book is a must for any student or professional who wants to learn the secrets of FX. Nygaard, Director of Financial Mathematics, The University of Chicago "An excellent text for students and practitioners who want to become acquainted with the arcane world of the foreign exchange market.
While primarily intended for practitioners, the book would be a valuable introduction for students with some knowledge of economics. The text is exceptionally clear with numeric examples and exercises that reinforce concepts. Frequent references are made to the economic theory behind the trading practices.
As a Managing Director of Financial Markets Education for UBS, he teaches thousands of clients and employees every year through seminars and internal classes, and serves as a faculty member of the Graduate Program on Financial Mathematics at The University of Chicago.
