It has been developed by a woman for women, to help both existing and new traders learn about online trading for stocks, options, shares, currency, and commodities,  and to debunk some of the myths and mystique which have always surrounded the trading and investment industry.

I have recently written a FREE 55 page guide to forex trading, and you can grab your copy NOW, simply by clicking on the image to your right - I hope you enjoy!

As promised I am now developing new web sites dedicated to various aspects of online trading and investing to help you learn, as well as broader aspects of finance and money. You can also catch up with ALL of my latest market forecasts and analysis on my personal site at Anna Coulling - I love to hear from other traders and will always do my best to help if I can.

I also run FREE live trading rooms - and to join simply click on the link here

As always the information is all free and these are now detailed on a separate page as the list was getting rather long. If you would like to see my  latest sites please just follow the link here. I am always developing new sites based on trading and investing so I hope you enjoy them and find them useful.

In the last few months I have added several new sites to help you learn how to trade online , and am now in the process of upgrading many of them, so that I can post to them on a daily basis. This will allow me to give regular details of my own trades, along with suggested trades based on my own technical and fundamental analysis of the particular market. Over time all the sites will be upgraded so that they will eventually all move from static information sites, to more dynamic sites with content updated daily, and weekly videos with my thoughts and views. The first of the these is almost ready and will be based on trading the gold market, followed by silver and oil. All the currency sites will also be upgraded so that sites explaining currency pairs will have daily posts with the forecast direction for the currency pair over the short/medium and longer term, and you can find a complete list of all my these below - just click here and it will take you to the bottom of the page with a list of all my free sites.

Discover the power of volume price analysis - on Amazon NOW

A-Complete-Guide-to-Volume-Price-Analysis-book-cover-design-1bThis is the book I have been meaning to write for many years. Finally, I have found the time to do just that!

Now a No 1 Best Seller: International Foreign Exchange

Volume has been the cornerstone on which my own trading career has been built. It was where I started, and I consider myself fortunate to have done so. Why? Because volume and price are the ONLY leading indicators of future market activity. Many traders never discover their awesome power until it's too late, relying on lagging indicators, which.........lag the market. Now finally it's here. In the book you will discover the unique approach that is VPA, or Volume Price Analysis. Price on it's own is just that - a price. Volume on it's own is just that - volume. But combine them together, and just like adding saltpetre, charcoal and sulphur, they become an explosive mixture. Your charts will quite literally EXPLODE into life. Suddenly you will have the insight to read the next market move, before it happens. Now, with VPA your trading will become stress free and enjoyable. Why? Because your trading decisions will be based on logic and common sense. The insiders simply CANNOT hide market activity from view. All you need to do is interpret the volume price relationship - then simply follow them. AND YES - even in the spot forex market!!

Discover how in the book, and your own success will follow

Here are some of the wonderful comments I have received on emails from customers who have bought the book - thank you so much - Anna

Dear Anna, I want to thank you so much for providing retail traders with a wonderfully written, fun to read, and very smart book ! I just finished your “A Complete Guide to Volume Price Analysis” and found it thoroughly enjoyable, and very, very informative. I had been introduced to some of these concepts before ( “volume spread analysis”) but have to tell you that your style and approach is a lot easier to comprehend, and a lot easier to actually put into practice.  JK

Dear Ms Coulling, I found your book on Amazon by chance, after having typed in Trading using Volume Price Analysis. Got the book this week, and I am already half way through it. Your exposition of the volume behaviour in the market and how different price bars relate to volume is fantastic. It truly is an eye opener. I have been interested in the Wyckoff approach for a while, but have not found something as clear as your book. Thanks for writing such a great book. SG

And now for another......

If you are new to the world of forex trading, then the following book may be for you. I remember what it was like when I first started and it can be a confusing and complex market to interpret.

In the book I explain the forces that drive the markets, and the broad approaches to analyzing market behavior. I hope it will provide the background knowledge to help you become a better trader, as you enter the world of forex trading.

An introduction to the forex market - on Amazon NOW!

A Three Dimensional Approach to Forex Trading book cover design 3e

Success for many traders remains an elusive dream, and whilst the trading process itself is relatively simple and straightforward, the markets themselves are most certainly not. Indeed of the four principle markets, forex is the most complex of all, and yet is promoted as one that could be your own personal ATM machine. Nothing could be further from the truth, which is why many aspiring traders ultimately fail and either give up, or move on. This is a great shame, as it's not their fault, and is simply because no-one has ever explained how the markets, and in particular, the forex markets, really work.

If this sounds familiar, then this book is for you.

The forex market is far from simple, and the tools and techniques you will need to survive and prosper are varied. Many budding traders approach the world of foreign exchange in a one dimensional way, either in adopting one single analytical technique, or by assuming that this market works in isolation to all others. Both are equally dangerous. The forex market sits at the heart of the financial world. After all, every decision by every speculator, trader or investor is about one thing, and one thing only - money. The FX market embraces every aspect of risk and return in financial terms, which is then overlain with the political and central bank manipulation, all part and parcel of this world. To succeed as a forex trader, you need to equip yourself with the tools, the knowledge and the techniques to take on the immense forces ranged against you. Approach the forex market with a pea shooter and you will simply become another casualty. Arm yourself with this book, and you will then enter the forex trading world, fully mobilised with the appropriate weapons, of which knowledge and insight are the most powerful.

    Follow Me On Twitter

    If you would like to follow some of my trades, I do post regularly on Twitter which is often called a "micro blogging" service. For those of you who are not familiar with it, it is simply a quick way to stay in touch with friends, family and news. You only link to people who are of interest to you, and the longest message is limited to 140 characters, so messages are short and sweet! It is ideal for me as I can update very quickly from my screen with details of possible trades, opportunities, news and also details of when my other sites have had new posts added, so you are always in touch. If you would like to follow me, and you already have a Twitter account, please just click on the "follow me on twitter" link above, or alternatively open an account with Twitter and then follow me. In addition I am also on Facebook, and MySpace, and would be delighted to hear from you there. I will shortly be opening a trading room on FriendFeed which will be available for you to meet other traders and investors and to discuss trading ideas, problems and strategies, along with access to my own trading suggestions. So there is a great deal going on at the moment, and please don't forget, you can always ask me a question at the new 'Ask Anna' site, or simply review trading questions asked by others so I hope you enjoy this new site.

    So, why have I developed all these sites which provide free information, help and advice? - a good question! In short, in a male dominated arena, many novice traders are frightened to ask questions( as are many men ), not wishing to appear stupid or ignorant. Those in the industry like to surround the financial markets in mystery, using arcane language which is unfamiliar to those on the outside. This is compounded by the plethora of so called online experts who charge large fees for a day's training, the content of which can generally be learnt by a little study and a great deal of practice.

    How they continue to survive is beyond me, but I was also taken in by such a person many years ago - part of my education!! Trust me, they are mostly a waste of time and money. The reason people go is because they think they will learn everything about the market in a free 2 hour seminar, or an expensive one day training day course. Please save your money, you will find everything here for FREE!!!! - learning how to trade online takes time ( not lots of money) !!

    Learn Online Trading : New To Investing

    online stock traderWho is this site for - the simple answer is anyone and everyone - whether you are looking to become a full time online trader and produce an income in the longer term, or simply to learn a little more about the markets so that you can invest a few thousand pounds wisely for your future.

    However, remember above all else, this is a GET RICH SLOWLY SITE - if you think you can cut corners and take huge risks, I suggest you go elsewhere - there are plenty of people out there who will happily take your money for a wonderful get rich quick scheme ( usually for their benefit - not yours!).

    There are no short cuts, and no get rich quick solutions. There are no systems that will tell you when to open a trade or when to close, and there is no easy money to be made. You will succeed only by your own efforts, hard work, study, practice, lots of reading, some mistakes, and maybe a little luck along the way, but all the time you will be learning. I hope that this site will provide the first step in your journey. And before I start, can I dispel one idea straight away - you do not need to be sitting in front of a screen all day in order to trade online - in fact it is better if you are not!

    Learn Online Trading: Help And Advice

    Thank you for taking time to visit this site and I hope your find it both useful and enjoyable. I am a full time currency and commodities trader, and am therefore often busy during the day, and in the evening. However, if you write to me via the Ask Anna page, I will always do my best to reply as quickly as possible - but please bear with me - at times I am overwhelmed with questions, and always try to answer as fully as possible, so your patience is appreciated.

    Wishing you every success and I hope this site along with all the others that I now offer, provide the basis of your first tentative steps in learning to trade and invest in the financial markets - kind regards - Anna
