Are you struggling to get your head around some of the major macro stories? Have you come to the trading table from a purely technical background, but know there is more to be found in understanding and trading the fundamentals?

If that is you then consider this book by David Moss: ‘A concise guide to Macroeconomics’.

It provides a good round the edges knowledge to the macro framework. However, don’t expect it to obviously impact your trading. It won’t. It is not a trading book, but an economics one. The strength of the book is that David Moss is a skilled teacher. He writes plainly, succinctly, and with purpose. All key attributes of a great teacher. In particular, we can recommend chapter 2 on money and chapter 4 on a short history of money and the monetary policy in the US. Worth reading.
