   The Trader

In today’s high tech world, everybody is a stock trader. It hardly matters what profession you come from, everyone is playing the stock market. A few years ago, many individuals didn’t know anything about investing in stocks, nor did they know anything about the companies whose stock they have been trading.

Our research shows a large segment of today’s stock market speculators are short term. When we say short term, we show an average holding time for these ‘short term’ traders to be a little over 62 days! The volume in the stock market over the past few years indicates that stocks are changing hands at a rapid pace and apparently back and forth. This form of investing is not the traditional buy and hold methodology, but more closely resembles characteristics similar to derivative speculating, an art which has historically been left to the futures traders. Stock options contribute to the new short-term way of thinking and appear to have transformed the way smaller investors approach the stock market. Sure enough, in our research we have found a distinction between two groups of investors, the older generation and the new. The older generations stick to the buy and hold methodology, while the younger investors are aggressively jumping in and out of stocks and using the derivative instruments to speculate on the short-term direction of individual stocks. As you might have guessed, the younger generation has not done as well as the older generation who consistently buys and holds. In fact, contrary to what these younger investors might imply, they have not faired that well in today's stock market. The fact is, most short-term stock market speculators have lost money trading and are in the red!

Are you short term or longer term? Making money consistently by trading stocks on a short-term basis is impossible according to our studies. There are simply far too many unknown variables in the short term trading that cannot be predicted. So the question is... Can you make money CONSISTENTLY investing on a short-term basis? The answer is yes, but not by trading individual stocks. Historical data indicates it is possible using another form of investment vehicles. The commodity markets. The commodity futures markets exhibit repeating patterns and an underlying order, which can be tracked and traded successfully on a very short-term basis. In commodities, it does not matter if prices are going up or down because you can profit from both sides! The commodity markets offer an opportunity for short-term traders to consistently profit on relatively short-term fluctuations.

Commodity Futures Trading

Before you even tackle such a huge task as learning about commodity trading you first need to determine if futures trading is suitable for you. This is a risky business with large potential rewards and equally large potential risks. Honestly, this is not suitable for everyone. One of the facts you most come to realize is that statistics tell us some 80% of all futures traders lose money. Are you sure you have what it takes to be in the 20% population of winners? Some traders have been trading for decades and never become profitable! This is a very difficult profession that requires a great amount of work and dedication. Are you willing to do the work? If you answered yes to the question, then our trading systems can help you learn how to trade commodities.

We can teach you everything from the basics of trading right up through and including our advanced systems. Successful trading skills and knowledge can be taught, but it does require a passion and strong drive to succeed on your part in order to get through the learning process! The rewards can be priceless.

Be very careful about purchasing books, videotapes, audiotapes or even attending seminars on the subject of commodity trading. We must warn you that there is a lot of junk on the market that is all hyped up from people only interested in selling their junk. Be it books, tapes, systems or even the seminars. Remember the truth in that old saying "if it sounds to good to be true then it probably is". Many of these people writing books, selling tapes and holding seminars do not even trade! So be very careful.

If after reading through our web site you are still determined and extremely excited about futures trading, then you'll need someone to show you the ropes of trading. You simply cannot learn everything from reading books. If that were the case we would not need college campuses or professors. All we would need is libraries. You'll need assistance and instruction from someone who trades the markets like we do. Floyd has spent the last 10+ years developing software for tracking, monitoring and taking measurements in the markets on a daily basis. Through our exclusive membership program, you can have access to this same software.


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.
