Authenticity


Picking up where their 2008 Grammy-nominated Leave It All Behind left off, Authenticity is the group’s most diverse work to date, with a tight, 11-track song cycle spanning the duo’s trademark brand of lush electronic soul, to stripped down acoustic pieces that recall the heyday of 70’s singer/songwriter driven Folk. Lead single “Maybe She’ll Dream Of Me” is a playful, synth-driven hip-hop groove featuring a rapped verse from Phonte that evokes the band’s “Connected” era, while the epic opener “The Last Fall” finds Phonte singing some of his most cynical lyrics to date over a frenzied Nicolay production jammed with layers of strings, guitars, and dense choral harmonies.

The Foreign Exchange Matrix: A new framework for understanding currency movements


The foreign exchange market is huge, fascinating and yet widely misunderstood by participants and non-participants alike. This is because its unanswered questions are numerous. For instance, what is the purpose of the $4 trillion per day trading volume? What determines currency trends and who are the players in the FX arena? Does FX drive other financial markets, or is it the passive end-product of all the other markets? FX is without clear supply and demand factors, so how do traders determine sentiment and price direction? Much is written in an effort to answer these questions, but a lot of it is just noise. In the 12 pieces here, Barbara Rockefeller and Vicki Schmelzer draw on their combined 50 years’ experience in foreign exchange to cut through the clutter and provide an elegant and razor-sharp look at this market. Their analysis is accurate, useful and enlivened by many anecdotes and examples from historic market events. They cover: – How the matrix concept can help observers understand foreign exchange market action – What professional FX traders take into consideration before entering into positions – Whether the FX market can be forecast – The interplay between foreign exchange and other financial markets – How technology has levelled the playing field between big and small players, and at what cost – Whether the prospect of reserve currency diversification away from the dollar is likely – The toolkit that central banks use to manage national economies and the effect of this on currencies ‘The Foreign Exchange Matrix’ is the go-to book for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the world of foreign exchange.

Foreign Exchange: A Practical Guide to the FX Markets


Praise for Foreign Exchange

“Tim Weithers starts by telling the reader that foreign exchange is not difficult, just confusing, but Foreign Exchange: A Practical Guide to the FX Markets proves that money is much more exciting than anything it buys. This useful book is a whirlwind tour of the world’s largest market, and the tour guide is an expert storyteller, inserting numerous fascinating insights and quirky facts throughout the book.”
-John R. Taylor, Chairman, CEO and CIO, FX Concepts

“The book reflects the author’s doctorate from the University of Chicago, several years’ experience as an economics professor, and, most recently, a very successful decade as an executive at a huge international bank. These fundamental ingredients are seasoned with bits of wisdom and experience. What results is a very tasty intellectual stew.”
-Professor Jack Clark Francis, PhD, Professor of Economics and Finance, Bernard Baruch College

“In this book, Tim Weithers clearly explains a very complicated subject. Foreign Exchange is full of jargon and conventions that make it very hard for non-professionals to gain a good understanding. Weither’s book is a must for any student or professional who wants to learn the secrets of FX.”
-Niels O. Nygaard, Director of Financial Mathematics, The University of Chicago

“An excellent text for students and practitioners who want to become acquainted with the arcane world of the foreign exchange market.”
-David DeRosa, PhD, founder, DeRosa Research and Trading, Inc., and Adjunct Professor of Finance, Yale School of Management

“Tim Weithers provides a superb introduction to the arcana of foreign exchange markets. While primarily intended for practitioners, the book would be a valuable introduction for students with some knowledge of economics. The text is exceptionally clear with numeric examples and exercises that reinforce concepts. Frequent references are made to the economic theory behind the trading practices.”
-John F. O’Connell, Professor of Economics, College of the Holy Cross
