yeah, babypips is a good honest basic course. I also found one at forexpeacearmy.com , its a little cheesy, but very simple and in depth.
that ocean of confusion is more intense than you might first realize. I would suggest getting used to it being there, and always be wary of anything you see or hear about the markets. Any 'free' info may not be 'good' , and any 'good' info will probably not be free. But that statement isn't always true.
Since forex is an international market, anyone and their mom in the world can make a course and sell it to you for xxx$'s .
I only read books that are recommended to me or written in another book as a reference , and I am currently saving cash to take a few courses at claytrader.com , and that is just my personal preference ( I like that the guy is white, American, and is trying to earn 0.5% a day in his trading ).
And when you read or hear news, take it with a grain of salt. And NEVER listen to so-called market analysis , they are on drugs 😲
Anna Coulling has the best books Ive read so far. Forex for Beginners on Amazom was a great read. She gives you a good overview and had follow up books on each subject she covers in every chapter. thumbs Up! FREE on Kindle!
