I'd recommend starting with a book that immerses you in the concepts. Then there are many good sites online that can give you ideas of how to apply that learning in today's markets. The rest you can learn it here.

Don't exist none book called 'The intelligent speculator' or 'Learn to operate forex market'...
So, exist some classic book about trading, speculation, high risks and fast money?
If there is nothing I can do a compilation about our experiences, good as bad. If we want this market to grow, the abduction of manners is to enter through the readings. The people are very sensitive to it.
Knowledge is one of the keys to success in trading, so I spend a lot of time reading the books on the subject and participating in the forum. here are some good booking that have helped me a lot, that I find great to learn to improve these trading skills: Trading for a Living: Psychology, Trading Tactics, Money Management Currency Trading for Dummies' by Mark Galant and Brian Dolan Trading in the Zone' by Mark Douglas Day and Swing Trading the Currency Market: Technical and Fundamental Strategies to Profit from Market Moves' by Kathy Lien The 10 Essentials of Forex Trading: The Rules for Turning Trading Patterns Into Profit' by Jared F.

As such I would recommend the following :
1)Phantom of the pits This is written by a trader who wish to remain anonymous. In my view, this is the best trading book ever written. The book only concentrate on three key concepts : cutting losses; pressing winners; and trade psychology. It is very instructive in taking these key concepts from a conceptual level to a practical dimension not seen in any trading books. I think it does a better job in bringing across these concepts than the Market Wizards series.
2)Beat the Forex Dealer: An insider’s look into trading today’s foreign exchange market – by Agustin Silvani This book is written by an institutional trader and explains the dynamics of the forex market from the institutional standpoint. if you wish to swim with the sharks, you need to understand how they operate and not get eaten in the process. the author provides an insightful view in particular on how to trade the news.
3)Naked Forex by Alex Nekritin & Walter Peters This book is useful because its scope is comprehensive in covering all the major areas in TA and so offers good content to the world of technical analysis and forex trading
4)jarratt Davies Jarratt Davies has written a trading book and is very active in expressing his views in professional trading publications. His views can be polarising because he is primarily a fundamental trader with some mix of technical input. He is one of the very few retail trader who has successfully transition to institution level and is consistently ranked one of the top currency trader by performance. I am primarily a technical trader and I credit him for opening my eyes to the role of fundamentals in forex trading and have adapted my trading strategy as a consequence.
5)One Good Trade by Mike Bellafiore This is a book on the world of professional prop trading. It is useful read because it provides an insight into the world of professional trading and the regime involved to be successful.
6)Sam Seiden He has written many articles on supply and demand and in my view is unequal in this area in enhancing your understanding of a very important subject in trading.
7)The Art and science of TA by Adam Grimes In addition to doing a good job on the science of TA, this book is very useful in discussing price action in trading.
8)High Performance Trading by Steve Ward It is book on trade psychology and its effect on performance. It is not just a conceptual discussion but practical steps involved to transform trading behaviour as after all trading is 60 % psychology.
