Good introduction

Content is ok, an introduction. Being an intermediate expert of the matter I didn't learn anything new but I think for beginners is a good start.
It is annoying how the narrator keeps using the word algorithmic instead of algorithm as they are they same, they are not!
Also a big no no in not mentioning at all Metatrader that is likely the most popular trading platform for beginners in algotrading in Forex.

Highly recommended for starting traders

This book is rather sort. However, it offers excellent "getting started" introduction of why algorithmic trading can work (if done correctly) and discusses the software packages that you'll need to get started. It doesn't get into the details of specific trading algorithms (a more-advanced topic), but it will help get you started.
