“Authored by a man of great character, this book is not only fascinating and innovative in the financial realm, but the spirit of his mantra infuses itself throughout: Life is not about what we acquire, rather what we become.” - Stephen R. Covey, author, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness
“Jared's book on Forex trading is a must for both seasoned and beginning traders of Forex. His personal litmus test was particularly enjoyable as it encompasses the most important thing a trader faces. That is, himself. The book is filled with excellent descriptions, trends, buy and sell zones and how to handle the fundamental events. His description of the Fibonacci sequence of numbers and how it relates to nature will be enjoyable to all readers. This book should be in every trader's library.” - Larry Pesavento
