   A Personal Message from Floyd Upperman

Dear Prospective Member:

I want to thank you for taking the time to look over my website and consider my services. Before you read any further I want to make something very clear right away. Yes I do trade. I use the data and strategies provided to members of this web-site. However, trading futures is not my only source of income. I also invest in and own real estate, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and money market funds. I trade the electronic stock indices (emini S&P) intra-day (day-trade) too. I also own and invest in raw bullion (Gold, Silver, Platinum, Palladium) as well as rare coins. I am a member of the American Numismatic Association (ANA #R-204923).

I run all of my personal finances as one big business. But in addition to this, I have also have been involved with several additional businesses down through the years. As a rule of thumb, I only stay involved in businesses that provide a profit and/or have the potential to provide a profit. Providing access to my trading systems and my trading experience through this web site earns me a profit too, as it should based on the work I do here as well as the many years of research (countless hours of late night programming). I provide valuable advice, assistance and mentorship (leadership) to individual investors and independent traders all around the world! What I provide is NOT free! But as I mentioned above, everything I do involving finances I manage as a business. That obviously includes providing access to my programs and proprietary data via this site! And if it were not profitable for me to do this, I simply would not do it. I am being honest with you here! Refreshing isn't it! But I will also tell you this (honestly) as well - I believe in my heart that the proprietary statistical data and indicators I provide here, on this site, are among the most powerful in the world! For example, click on the link below to see my brokerage statement showing the final profit (out of multiple contracts I purchased) in the 2003 Soybean IMPA buy setup. I entered this IMPA buy setup using call options and posted the trade from beginning to finish in my evening reports. I entered with everyone else (posted via my predetermined entry) in early August 2003 and exited out of my last contract in September using our proprietary position management methods. These methods enabled me to capture a nearly 1000% return (turning $525 investment into $4850 in about a month). Click here for my broker statement.

Now that I've got that out of the way, I have one more item I want to discuss as well!

I am often asked why I provide access to my system if I have such a good trading system. In other words, Why don't I just trade my system(s) myself, realizing all the rewards, rather than providing access via this service?!? As stated above, I do trade my systems and strategies. However, no system can guarantee profits and ALL good systems experience losses (draw-down) as well as quiet times when there is nothing setup to trade. Many people mistakenly believe that there are always opportunities to make money trading. This simply is not true! A successful trader waits for the right conditions to setup (based on a system or method) before establishing a position. This waiting time can vary. This is where many new traders often make mistakes. I have learned through my own costly mistakes that trading for the sake of trading results in nothing but loss (in the long run). I have also learned that the markets do not care if I need to make money today, this week or next week. With trading, you have to wait for the opportunities. One can not force an opportunity from the market! Sometimes there are many opportunities with our systems, and sometimes there are none. By providing this service in addition to my other investments (such as stocks & real estate), I am able to secure regular stable income while building and growing my portfolio of diversified investments! Best of all however, I am doing what I enjoy most, every day! And that is tracking, trading, and studying the markets! This is my main business! There is not a day that goes by that I am not thinking about or trading in some market some where in the world! Through this service, I only hope that I can provide you with some of the knowledge I have gained through my many years of experience in tracking and trading many markets. Furthermore, my trading methods, indicators, and charts are unique to my systems and trading methodologies. I built these systems myself, including the indicators and the charts that the indicators are plotted on! This is work that I have done over the course of the past 15+ years now! These charts, graphs and systems can only be found on this web site.

Very Respectfully,


No guarantees can be made for success. Past performance is not a guarantee of future profits. Futures trading is NOT our only means of income. We also invest in stocks, real estate as well as generate income from other businesses. We have both winning trades and losing trades. We trade professionally, but not daily. We wait for what we believe to be ideal trading opportunities.
