   Floyd Upperman’s Professional Career: An Overview

Floyd became interested in the futures market in the early 1990’s after investing in stocks and stock options. While working in the high tech world of semiconductors, Floyd spent his spare time and money researching the investment world. He held a number of engineering positions in the semiconductor industry for ten years upon graduating from college in Ohio. Floyd spent three years with Intel Corporation in New Mexico in the eighties, and then the next seven years doing R&D for Motorola in Irvine California.

Floyd studied mathematics, statistics and computer programming in college. He has a great deal of experience in solving problems by analyzing data and presenting different solutions or outcomes based on statistical probabilities. Floyd has put these skills to good use. He found out early in his trading career that the commercially available charting software and price tracking systems were not versatile nor complex enough to get at the data at the level he felt necessary to gain an edge in the market place. Floyd used his statistical knowledge and programming abilities to develop and create his own charting software and proprietary indicators. His unique approach of combining technical price data with fundamental data yielded his IMPA.

Using his knowledge in statistics and engineering background combined with his programming skills, he designed his own trading system based on repeating patterns and conditions characteristic to individual commodities. What Floyd found from computer back testing was amazing. Floyd believes data shows an underlying order in the commodity markets not found in the historic price movements of individual stocks! In his research he discovered specific patterns in commodity prices unique to each market. He found that these patterns are highly correlated to the positions held by the participants in the commodity markets. Using fundamental information supplied by the U.S. government (Commitment of Traders Data), he has been able to separate the open interest for each commodity into three distinct groups. While everyone else has been looking at prices or price structures for core indicators, Floyd developed his proprietary trading & tracking system using the data from the three unique groups of traders tracked by the U.S. government (Commercials, Funds, and Small Speculators).

Today, as a registered Commodity Trading Advisor, Floyd provides regular updates in the futures markets to trading professionals around the globe, who are using his proprietary trading systems and unique information. Each markets is always evaluated the night before in order for professionals to devise a strategy for the following day. Floyd communicates with his students and clients throughout the entire world via his daily reports and via personal email contact. He works very closely with his students and clients. Floyd’s analysis of the markets can be beneficial to all traders, beginner and professional alike. His recommendations and forecasts are instructional so traders can learn the "how and why" to make their own trading decisions based on his approach, data, and unique indicators.
