For more than 40 years I’ve banged away at the markets, everything from stocks to bellies to writing calls, even to cornering the sugar market years ago. Day in and day out, I trade.I have an unquenchable thirst for the markets: short term trading, position trading, trading stocks, commodities, futures... you name it. My hard work, countless hours of research, and years of trading have paid off in spades. I have made millions from my own personal trading.In 1973 I wrote the best selling book, “How I Made A Million Trading Commodities”. In 1987 I took $10,000 to $1.1 million in the most widely publicized real time trading championship out there. No one has ever come close to surpassing my record year 11,000% return. In 1997 I taught my 16 year old daughter to trade and she became the second all time winner... and I made another million that year myself.I’ve traded my own money live in foreign markets at seminars held in Russia, China, Japan, Germany, Australia, Singapore, and other countries. Unlike just about everyone else out there, I really have made millions from my own personal short term trading. More importantly though, I have taught others to do the same.Numerous students of mine have gone on to to win that same prestigious trading championship, manage funds, or become successful advisors or personal short term traders. Not all have succeeded, this business of trading stocks, futures and commodities is tough and is not for everyone.You may have already come across several of my contributions to the financial world; like the indicator Williams %R, or one of my many best selling books on trading and investing, or perhaps you have seen the professional awards I have been fortunate enough to be given. Regardless, my work is widely available and useful to many.My tools of trading and new breakthroughs in trading have also been published in magazines such as Active Trader, Futures Magazine, and Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities. My research and writing are continuous. I've also been featured in Barron's, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Fortune, and Vanity Fair. I am one of the most widely quoted and followed advisors. I've been interviewed on television numerous times: CNBC's Power Lunch and Wake-Up Call, Bloomberg Television, CNN-Financial, and Neil Cavuto's show on FOX News. I have a sound reputation in the financial world when it comes to short term trading and investing. I have always enjoyed sharing my knowledge with other traders and am ready to help you get started. Whether you are brand new to short term trading or an accomplished trader, I think you can learn from me. I'm the real deal.
